I have spent over two hours to try to get this mod to run I have followed the instructions. I patched it and tryed so many things to get it to work. I read alot of forms on the problems with this mod saying its just a mess. All my other mods work no problem. I would love to play this mod but it looks like its just broke to ****. I have done alot for moding with alot of other games for years and this mod is one stubborn turd. Please fix your mod man it should not be this hard to trouble shoot.
I give this game a 3 and not a 1 only because I wasn't actually able to play when I booted it up. After waiting around a half hour for it to reach the Main Menu I was greeted by enormous amounts of lag that I could not avoid by switching the graphics to the lowest settings... speaking of which, the graphics in this game are nothing spectacular and appear dated by around 6 or 7 years. That's not to say it takes anything from the game mechanics, of course, just I don't see why it would perform so poorly; I rather think they should have opted for something even simpler and optimized it more efficiently.
Now, when I tried to actually play a game was when things got tricky. First I tried the tutorial - the loading screen took me another 10 or so minutes before it dropped me in. Plenty of lag at first but it all settled down... then I tried to perform a simple objective: "Select the barracks and train Swordsmen." Easy enough, you'd think. However upon selecting said trained Swordsmen I was instantly deafened by the 20db of their horrible call to be directed. After my initial shock and a soft massaging of my sensitive eardrum I clicked the unit again, still the audio clipped well beyond acceptable volume levels. I clicked another unit, no clipping. Swordsman, clipping. I turned the game audio down which solved the problem for about a minute... then I was deafened yet again.
At this point I quit the game, reopened and tried the online campaign, the loading time of which was around 10 minutes. All the audio outside music was now clipping, and nothing I could do would remedy the problem. The game was lagging every 5 or so frames, and I had to Alt+F4 out just to quit the game and avoid sitting there for another 10 minutes waiting to get to the main menu.
This could be a really great game, but for me it was absolutely unplayable and what I saw was fairly unremarkable. A very 'buyer beware' title in my opinion.
Graphics are about on par with that Slender redub... nothing special. Extremely blurry on any settings. The update appears to have done absolutely nothing gameplay wise. There is no supsense to this game. You know exactly what causes the monster to come, and even from what direction, every... single... time. At least Slenderman keeps you guessing and leaves you the hell alone at some point.
If you don't like the Call of Duty Gameplaystyle you definitly shouldn't grab for this one. It is very similar to that specific Franchise. Here are some examples:
-Infinite Enemyrespawn controlled by scripts
-Most Rifles are pretty much the same
-Bad Leveldesign in general (Lots of corridorshooting)
Some other points which bothered me:
-Extremly loud guns
-Minor Glitches from time to time
-My Saves broke at some point, So I had to restart
Some very nice polish, great sounds and a good atmosphere! But the mechanics are horrible.
There's no skill or dexterity involved in controlling the power of each shot - simply a slider. You pick the spin position, pick the power and then click the 'Take Shot' button. It's not spontaneous or exciting.
There's no hotkeys either, all commands are activated with mouse clicks only.
It feels very dumbed down and as if it was designed for a touch/phone interface.
This game was very disappointing as it has the framework in place for a great snooker/pool game, but the momentum, fluidity and pace of the game is handicapped by the interface and poor choice of game mechanics.
Ultimately I had very little fun and after a couple of hours I've had to uninstall it.
Very god game butt to easy mision and short.
I will hav a endles mod or NOD hunting ther its posible to make i from to easy and upp to inposible. (the game is to short)
It most have a online mision ther you kan play as GDI or NOD ther eath millitary base has as mision to desroy the Skrin/Fogeten to reach the tru
enemy and eleminate them.
And a big problem is that it isent posible to change all setings and if you change controls the game dosent know it and say the standard ke.
The level design looked nice ONLY in a few places, the mod needs more than some platform jumping. There was a total of 4 weapons in this entire mod! There needs to be more weapons than just 4! There's no story to it what so ever... a random disaster happens out of nowhere without explaination. Oh and the cutscene that plays every time you fall is just time wasting and dumb. It was also pretty boring, doing nothing but jumping on some Xen platforms with very few action sequences and places to go; basically a chore... It isn't the worst mod out there but
overall this mod went from Half-Life to Half-Assed.
Please take no offence.
