how about some gameplay footage? How is there nothing on this game? Even the takedown website has nothing
This is more to the Gamespot staff than users, but anyway....
Hmm, zero comments, that sucks :). Ok, I'm a little biased maybe, but here's why I think this game deserves coverage, even if you don't like the game itself.
These days there's a massive trend towards indie games, and one of the key arguments being thrown around is that they are different, innovative, etc. These indie games are contrasted against the AAA scene and of course with so many shooters now, often the indie titles are applauded for not being about shooting and guns and killing and so on.
So here we have a game that is a shooter, it's got guns and killing people, but does that mean it should be automatically dismissed?
Is it totally indie? Well not 100%, but it started off in that way, using Kickstarter to get enough money to get a publisher interested, and even then it was still made by a very small team with very limited resources, small budget. Is it innovative? Hmm, again not really, because games like this existed already, but this subgenre of shooters died out long ago. What's nice though, is they aren't touting is as such, they're pretty damned honest about their game, and that's very rare.
It is however, very different from just about every other shooter out there, even all those from the last several years. It's trying to bring back the realism and tactical style of the old days of games like Rainbow Six, so it's got a bit of a nostalgia element as well, nostalgia isn't just about making a platformer or old school RPG :).
It's trying to do something different by bringing back a type of game that basically died out many years ago. It's trying to be different from other shooters by excluding expected but unrealistic mechanics as well flashy cinematics and chaos. It's trying to bring some thought into the shooting. Although it doesn't have some emotional story with gripping cutscenes, you could still argue it takes death more seriously than most shooters, having no respawns or regenerating health.
Everything is in the same vein as other "indie" titles, and they are commended for such things. So for that reason, it should be given a chance, and certainly not overlooked simply because it's a shooter.
@hystavito Translation to your big text: "This game is hardcore and you we should be happy for that ! "
I can agree to that, but if the review is true, I think this game can't even beat Vegas 2, so, we can't support a game that's so bad.... If GS gave it 2/10 for this game because it's not Call of Duty, AND this game IS INDEED good, better than Vegas 2, then I can even send a letter with some bad words against GS staff!
