Something a little differentCooberstooge | Sept. 13, 2012 | See all Cooberstooge's reviews »
Essentially, in Soviet Russia, Rambo is Partisan. This is a different take on quite a number of game genres, the most surprising of which is that this title is actually a top-down shooter, with a few elements of a lot of other genres thrown in for good measure. This game can be a long one, if you play your cards right, and you'll run across all kinds of original characters on your journey back to your friends and to save the Motherland.
The game looks quite good for the age of it, and it manages to have a slightly roughed up look to it I've never found in any other games of a similar type. It runs great on current hardware, and hums along happily on older stuff as well. The sounds are good, with lots of tense notes during close encounters with heavily armed foes. Controls are well-placed, although a couple of the action buttons could do with keys just to the left of their default positions for ease of access.
The story is at times a little cliche, but I stuck with it for all the friendlies you run across - it's evident somebody spent quite a lot of extra time working on those NPCs. The game lasted me a good number of hours for the price, and I had absolutely no technical issues whatsoever with getting it to run. Recommended if you want to try something a little off the beaten path, and don't mind an at times seriously cliched story.

The main character of this dynamic combination of action and role-playing genre elements is heroic Red Army officer, who as a result of an unfortunate confluence of warfare alone struggling to survive on the front lines. Worse game I've seen in my life.

From the looks of it, you might confuse it with a strategy game. But infact it is actually a top down shooter. The game lets you control a lone solider, fighting his way out of Nazi occupation. We need to shoot our way through, with a variety of WW2 era weapons in varied environments. Partisan also features a set of 'SKILLS' mechanic that adds an element of RPG into the mix. But mostly game is shallow and soon gets boring and repetitive. Graphics are average at best. I don't think game offer the right bang for your buck as the gameplay isn't engaging and interesting. Still if you want to kill some free time. This game might interest you.

This top down shooter is great fun to play, as it has a detailed storyline, and looks nice enough. The wide range of weapons makes this game even better, as the wide variety of firearms let you experiment with what weapons you find are best to kill your enemies with. You basically have to infiltrate the enemy and use a mixture of stealth, action and other attack plans to defeat the enemy and win the game. Very fun, and worth the pricetag if you're looking to kill a few hours.
