A futuristic action game that challenges your agility as well as your aim, Ricochet features one-on-one and team matches played in a variety of futuristic battle arenas.
It really feels weird playing this in the beginning. You hardly know what you have to do. But once you get used to it, it becomes funny. You have to hit enemies with something like a Frisbee, while jumping form platform to platform. The big problem for this, as for most of the old games is it would be pretty hard to find a server with players, but hey, you can always play with bots (which are actually not brainless). Overall, it's a fun game to try and who knows, you might get addicted.
Ricochet is a multiplayer game with the half-life graphics, it is based on jumping plataforms and shooting discs to make the other people die or fall from them, it is pretty basic and no one plays it,there is almost nobody playing there, the game is practically dead,that is why this game is considered a "joke" for the most valve fans.
Quite a bit of mindless trickshotting platform-hopping fun in your choice of 1v1 arena or two flavors of deathmatch. When you get a player with you, the $5 is completely worth it. That's where we have a problem. This game is dead. I don't mean "less than 100 players" dead... I mean NOBODY. This game's server list is a ghost town, and since the game doesn't have bots you'll be dueling yourself. Bring some friends with you if you want to play or schedule your games beforehand. Without doing that, you won't be able to get much out of this game.
Half Life 1 multiplayer mod by valve themselves with intense disc throwing and minimal neon style released in year 2000. That's pretty much everything you can know about this game. Good thing about it is that it runs even with a potato but because game's really old there's no players and only couple servers to join. That said it's could be really fantastic to boot up and play on LAN with friends who only have laptop which is running barely Windows XP. For random fun and LAN play price may be little bit too high for that old game. When it's on sale however you may want to buy couple extra copies and send them to friends as gift.
Ricochet is way more complex than it seems on first sight. It could be fun if there were more players like back in its day. :) I used to love it, and played it a lot with friends. Veeeery underrated game.
