Rise of Oldschool Action

KingTed | July 16, 2015 | See all KingTed's reviews »

Rise of the Triad was a 94 First Person Shooter with over the top gunfights and gore all over the place. This remake is just like that (minus the gore). It's the same game but with new graphics, better controls, excellent level design and enjoyable boss fights. Sure the game is rought around the edges but the fun remains the same. Also, it is pretty hard and the scoring system can make play forever.


A classic shooter with a contemporary look

RiVenoX | Oct. 12, 2014 | See all RiVenoX's reviews »

Tons of secrets, tons of ridiculousness. It's a throwback to the origins of the FPS genre. The team behind it has been constantly supporting it post-launch including tons of free patches. They genuinely seem to give a damn about player experiences, and want you to have fun. It's not an easy game, there's no regenerating health, and it requires planning in addition to jumping in a room and blasting everything that moves. You will gnash your teeth in some areas, but only because you know you could have done it better. The intended audience is generally over 25, people who grew up with these types of games, and want a kick in the nostalgia.


Good game if you're into old school

tonydufa | Sept. 1, 2014 | See all tonydufa's reviews »

If you're a child of the 80's 90's and played Quake/Doom you'll like this game. There's no hand holding, and you'll have to explore yourself. Enemies are stupid and numerous, there's no cover system and you have to find health pickups. Which is a refreshing change from what we've seen for years. Only downside IMO to this game is as others have said, performance. The graphics are average at best, but the game has numerous slowdowns that seem to max out my CPU more then anything else. Pick it up when it's on sale for sure.


Not my cup of tea.

hateah | Aug. 31, 2014 | See all hateah's reviews »

It starts like a very long comic, you can choose between 3 champions, each has it's strength (pluses and minuses). The shooting is kinda meh.. They die in 2 hits with the dual pistols, the blood effects aren't very well drawn. The music is too "hard" (not my cup of tea). The graphics at least are kinda good. It has some of the sci-fi effects in some parts of the game. And it also has very big choice of weapons. They tried to make it like an old-school looking game imo, and they managed to, but those kind of games won't be much appreciated by the current community of the indie/shooter games.


Remade classic mostly for fans

Demilisz | Aug. 29, 2014 | See all Demilisz's reviews »

This is a great remake of classic game, but still mostly fans will appreciate it. There are tons of secrets hidden on every level and shooting is incredibly fun, but this game is tough. Very tough, even for old school shooter standard. So if you are prepared to die many times and still try to move forward - this is something for you. If you lack a patience - look for something else.
