Shootmania Storm is a simple looking first person shooter with the only thing on your screen being your reticle and health and ammo information. The game only has two weapons a longer range railgun style shot and the primary is a slow moving rocket kind of shot that lacks splash damage. You are able to move around quickly so there is a need to aim where you opponent is going to be rather than where they are now, though the lack of splash damage does mean that you can get close to your enemies. There are four different game modes with one being a duel against another opponent, one being a large battle where storms come in that force you to move to certain areas for close range fights, one that has two teams trying to attack each others points, and one that has a lone player attempting to capture a point against three others. The game allows you to browse servers but doesn't have AI in games so you will need to fill up games with real players to get a good game going. It's a simple game in practice but fun and with good game modes and the ability to create custom content.
If you are a fan of games such as Battlefield or Call of Duty, this may not be for you. However, if you enjoy Quake, Nexuiz, etc. then this game may be what you are looking for. This game has a great number of maps, some created by the developers and others created by the community. What really makes this game the best is that it truly is made for competition. Every player in the game is on an even playing field as there is no such thing as an "overpowered" weapon. What this means is that the player who is performing the best in a match truly is the best in the match, which is how I believe online shooting games should be.
