Best budget shooter I have played in a while

netnerd85 | Nov. 29, 2012 | Review of Chernobyl Terrorist Attack

I've played a lot of budget shooters over the past couple of years and this one is close to being on top. Of course your expectations can't be too high going into any budget shooter, they are after all budget titles. What makes this one special? well it's the combat and the AI. This game has some of the best, not the best but some of the best AI I have seen in a game of recent times, that is ANY game of any budget. They make the game fun because it's challenging and they react differently. The AI will run off and hide behind cover, throw grenades, fire rocket launchers and zig zag across the screen to escape your fire.

The hit point registration seems to not exist which is annoying and some enemies will take an entire clip of the AK to finally lay down, be careful some will still get back up for more. But the AK weapon seems a bit weak compared to the rest. It's the main weapon you will get ammo from because it's the default enemy weapon but you have plenty of more good weapons including a very powerful shotgun. One blast of the shotty and they won't be getting back up. The grenades work very well against groups of enemies. The weapon balance over all adds to the fun of the game.

The shooter is basic, the graphics are fine, the story is alright and that's all you can really ask of a budget shooter. This one beats out most of the City Interactive titles on display around GMG so give this one a go!

Sadly, it's horrible

netnerd85 | Oct. 22, 2011 | Review of Sniper: Art of Victory CAP

Sniper: Art of Victory feels more like a concept game they threw together in the back offices of City Interactive that later spawned the very awesome Sniper: Ghost Warrior game.

I'm a WW2 gaming fan and a City Interactive fan but this title is something I can not recommend. If you have played Battlestrike Force of Resistance then you will notice a lot of the same models and textures and the very horrible Chrome 2 engine. The player is chunky to control and although I didn't notice any bulletproof grass the AI is very crap and rarely a challenge.

Save yourself some money and skip this title.
