Good game if you're into old schooltonydufa | 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 fansDemilisz | 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.

Are you tired of generic shooters? Do you want something a bit more...ludicrous? Well, get this game. Rise Of The Triad is an incredibly bloody and incredibly fun game. I only have a few issues: 1) The game doesn't look great. 2) The game has little lighting in places, which makes you not see enemies which will lead to your demise.

Not bad, not bad at all. This is an ideal game for people that want to return to the days of fast-paced first person shooters with large levels packed with secrets. This game is packed with all of the weapons from the classic release and they made the transition perfectly. There's nothing like speeding through a level and blowing everything in your path into little giblets.
Graphically the game is pretty dang good, certainly nothing to scoff at. Sadly however, the game isn't the most optimized thing in existence. I was unable to run it at more than 15fps on an AMD quad core 3.2GHz and a HD6850, regardless of what settings I attempted. Thankfully I later upgraded my PC and it runs well enough for me to be writing this review. Still, if you're worried about your PC not being up to the task you may want to hold off altogether or at least wait for a good sale before purchasing this title.
