Old school, yet at the same time moderncommanderhavoc | Oct. 30, 2013 | See all commanderhavoc's reviews »
This remake of the classic DOS FPS Rise of the Triad not only stays true to the original, but also adds many more jokes as well as making the boss battles even more challenging and interesting. And of course, all those wacky weapons and powerups that you could find in the original are here as well, including the God Mode powerup. Also, this is much MUCH more fast paced then most first person shooters you find today and so it can get quite hectic as you battle the evil Triad as one of five unique characters that have their own sets of strengths and weaknesses that make it even more interesting.

Original Rise of the Triad is one of coolest but at the same time most overlooked FPP games ever. Thankfully its coming back in this pretty faithful remake. This is old school fun in the Wolfenstein 3D/ Doom style but on drugs. Really cool powers like GoD mode or DoG mode. Gibs flying everywhere while you kill mass amounts of nazis while looking for hundreds of secrets. I really enjoy that throwback vibe I find lacking in most contemporary FPP shooters. With the modding tools it has the potential to offer pretty much infinite gameplay (anyone remembers Doom WADS?). I highly recommend this one.
Best FPS Released!NeonSKennedy | Oct. 30, 2013 | See all NeonSKennedy's reviews »
This game is easily the best game I have played since Doom. I have played a lot of games in my life but this one takes the cake, because you run around and kill people. Now, that is the formula for the perfect game, and I say that because killing people and blasting your way through levels is how every game should be played. That is probably why something like The Walking Dead or The Sims 3 are just awful games that nobody plays and they didn't win Game of the Year. This game also looks better than any game I've seen, Battlefield 4 came out today and it doesn't look nearly as good as this. This game is the best! 10 out of 10! Game of the Year!
A good start for a small studio.MauroR | Sept. 4, 2013 | See all MauroR's reviews »
I've heard people complain about this game due to the bugs o this game, but people have to think that this is a small studio with few people, it's not Ubisoft or Id Software or Bethesda. I think they did a great job bringing the old school feeling to the modern gaming audience. We must encourage these guys instead of bashing them. I liked the game, I'm sure that they'll do better with our support.

There's been a huge gap in FPS genre for games like Rise of the Triad. Those fast based games like Unreal Tournament, Quake, Shadow Warrior and of course Rise of the Triad basically defined what FPS was in the 90's. Now those games've been replaced ones like Call of Duty and Battlefield(you can argue about quality of them), more slower and tactical games and not so much reflex.
Rise of the Triad is here to fix that and it does just that, mindless, fast paced shooting with enemies exploding in blood and guts, eyeballs flying at the screen and all that great gory stuff.
Weapon system is a lot different from anything else, your basic weapons like assault rifle and pistols have unlimited ammo, but they don't pack the biggest punch. if your eally want to survive, you need to find heavy weapons like rocket launchers which make enemies splatter all over the place. You can also turn into a dog and get the hand of god that can kill anything.
This is for people who love fast paced FPS action, and soon there's also other great remake coming, Shadow Warrior. Hopefully we'll see some actually new games now that these remakes seem to be fairly successfull.
