What are we playing?

Recommended Posts

   Well, that was quick - 30 minutes of playing Sabotage (Sabotain: Break the Rules IIRC for english version) were enough for me to delete it. This game is rather old (2004) First person RPG set in a far future. This game is a mix of Postal 2/GTA 3 with Deus Ex, combining city devided in locations with loading screen between them, with RPG gameplay inspired by Deus Ex.

   I'm standing to the left of this NPC, camera is now outside of first person perspective.

 

   Everything in this game is bad. From visuals to dialogues and quests (i did like 2 and was massively bored). Game is very cheaply made - in one of dialogue "cutscene" where main character is threatening to kill a night club bouncer developers decided to animate this action. The thing is that when you engage with NPC in dialogues tree, camera just deattache itself from main hero head and start to fly on its own, doing strange slow rotatition to left and right from NPC head... and devs just overlayed usual first person animation of pulling gun out over 3rd person camera...

   After being told to fuck off (and gun put to his head) this bouncer runned away for few seconds, but then a script was triggered that made all securities in night club to be hostile towards player, so this guy went back, trying to fire his imaginary weapon. No melee attacks were used by him, this stupid scene was going on for like 30 seconds before i shot him.

   Game does a very poor job explaining your abilities. I accidently stumbled across badly made slow-mo.

   Critical NPC can be shot and killed during action part of this RPG. Enemies have no problems firing through/near NPCs. 

 

   So bad visuals, terrible player introduction to abilities, awkward shooting and action in general, bland missions, bland/boring dialogues and no interesting characters, awkaward/bugged AI and general cheapness of this game made me search for a review, but only after game was deleted (to confirm that it is not going to improve later). And even during uninstalling this game managed to bug out - "Not all components were deleted, you have to delete remaining on your own".

   Review of Hellforces

   This Russian FPS was released in 2005, very likely used Metro-2 engine to run. It was supposed to be less serious type of FPS with jokes and funny popculture references on top of action gameplay. My friend bought it shortly after release and about week later gave me his disk to play around. Now, 14 years later i'm reviewing it! :lol:

 

hellforces_1.png

 

   Visuals 

   In general they are on a level with Metro-2 - kind of "ok" at best for 2005 in several levels. Less realistic set up of story allowed for more creative location designs compared to Metro-2, but this game don't use this aspect much. On my machine it have same problems as Metro-2 - bugged textures and light in some of indoors levels. Overal this game looks ugly, thanks to uninspired "art" design of majority of places main hero visits.

sZH3KL3.jpg

 

   Usual level of visuals:

   Example of bugged interior lighting. Textures were flickering as well.

   Gameplay

   Hellforces exactly same problems as Metro-2 - awkward shooting is biggest of them. You can still kill yourself by shooting metal surfaces, kek. On top of that this FPS is bog standart as list of features goes, so nothing really interesting in level design (corridors), weapons and their effects on enemies (assault rifles, rocket launchers, pistols and sniper rifles - usual deal), health/armor systems and so on. There is no "drive" behind Hellforces bog standart shooting - no memorable situations gameplay-wise. 

   Same goes for enemies - there is some variety of them, but none of them are memorable or really interesting to fight againsts. Majority of them don't have anything going for them - no cool voice acting, no cool animations/movement or attacks. AI is bad in general across whole selection of baddies.

One of enemy types. Technically it flies, but it doesn't actually fly away from ground level, as it's AI probably is using navigation system of normal baddies.

 

vw3EtLn.jpg

It is what it looks like. A lot of HPs and melee weapon + not too bad speed. Although he is really dumb.

 

Uy7aY1b.jpg

"Magician" type of enemies. Attacks in direct LOS, moves in same way as all other enemies, nothing really special.

 

5yQZUPU.jpg

Disinterested face expressions don't help to CQB firefights in this game.

 

hfB6Av9.jpg

AI can see through this thick grass.

 

jsbRtgU.jpg

And yes, this is a problem because those Rambos are walking inside of those bushes.

 

 

   Plot

   A machine that suck out souls was created, bodies left from experiments were filled with demons. Those evil things kidnapped (?) girlfriend of our likeable and sarcastic joke cracking "too cool for ya" protagonist, which mean we need to find her and save. As hook this plot is not too terrible, problem is that developers didn't managed to pull it off in almost all aspects - drama suck and jokes are really bad. Girlfriend was turned into zombie thing, but this idea also goes nowhere interesting, as it was a set up for a boss fight that i didn't cared about, as girlfriend character wasn't explained/given opportunity to be experienced. On top of that there are pop-culture references to Star Wars, Matrix, Fullmetal jacket and few more, but all of them are done rather badly.

   In a whole game only one joke made me crack a faint smile - when players gets into yet another underground tunnel hero says "is there any other sewer tunnel i didn't visited?!" and tunnel briefly ends with an exit.

   Pop-culture references for the most part are pick up devices, some of which you can even use. Full Metal Jacket gives you protection for some time (haha, very funy), Trinity glasses work as bad night vision and Luke lightsaber is just borken (not bugged, this is item description).

   The thing is that when you describe shit that is going on in this game, you can see a potential for really funny game, but terrible plot/script/cutscenes/dialogues/overal writing and execution kills it.

   Conclusion

   Don't bother with it. Hellforces is cheaply and badly put together generic (at best) corridor shooter without emotional impact on any level.

 

   Extra crap - as this game is made on Metro-2 engine, ragdoll is almost exactly the same.

Completed original Far Cry a week ago. Some screenshots (1st level).

eWFBJpZ.jpg

   Reflections in water are partially bugged, sadly (terrain at times don't reflect). For 2004 this was very nice picture, both technically and just pleasant for a human.

 

Spoiler

9GRFTcc.jpg

   Nobody will survive our Generic McMilitary guy protagonist!

   NOBODY!

IsWynua.jpg

   Is that a giant fuel tank behind this merc?

 

OjmKapY.jpg

   Yes, it is!

 

peGSy8m.jpg

   In last patch of Far Cry Crytek managed to make a bug in AI vision system, so they can spot player though those tent barracks. There is a players-made fix for that.

 

CrDEeVc.jpg

   Good thing that there are no AI commander dudes around, with them Mercs start to fire at suspicious bushes.

 

B0ljokU.jpg

   Reinforcements. Scripted, but it will be triggered only if enemies will manage to press Alarm button.

   Attacking watchtowers is one of AI weakspots.

 

6IKNtEy.jpg

MFLKmqK.jpg

   Drivable, with physics on the level of HL2 car.

 

0LFdfBu.jpg

   Nice tactical schemes to use against mutants, but sadly not used much by mercs.

 

LNIlBlW.jpg

   After hearing gunshots those 2 are rushing from a beach to forest nearby. AI in Far Cry was rather good for 2004, and still can show teeths even today in medium ranges.

 

DakxZv3.jpg

   Also drivable, armed with HMG and Rocket launcher, that fires slow-mo rockets.

 

TzvXow1.jpg

 

RCMzCYC.jpg

   Trying to spot anybody sometimes is rather hard to do in such vegetation. That tall grass is not counted for AI vision calculations, BTW.

 

MQbfyvP.jpg

   Rockets are so slow in Far Cry that at such distances you can walk away from point of impact.

 

3mQ4Al5.jpg

   Binoculars can spot and tag enemies on your radar. Kind of wallhack, at times. Totally changes how game is played.

 

Cxq2DLl.jpg

   Drive&gun

 

2GUE2L4.jpg

   Both mercs are probably "Cover" type of AI. They advance in turns - 2nd one is reaching first merc to cover his next aadvance.

   Some terrain types can be affected by explosions.

 

uYMhqEx.jpg

   For some reason AGL have very low RoF and very high-magn. zoom with build in FCS that give you aiming point with range/elevation calculations already done.

   Dynamic shadows in Far Cry were a bit more natural compared to Doom 3's pitch black void shadows (when only 1 light source was casting shadows). And at times shadows are relevant to a gameplay in Far Cry (although rarely)

   On my friend's PC (back in 2004) this place was laging because of amount of shadow calculations, kek.

   Mercs have number of idle animations and things to do, there is special tool in Editor to make them carry boxes, do fishing, patrol, etc.

 

ORu8IYM.jpg

   For some reason they reminded me one of Klichko brothers.

lrjHLqs.jpg

   15 years ago that was top notch tech, lel.

 

PllCAVk.jpg

   In Far Cry indoor spaces can't be illuminated by outdoor light (because of Vision portal/Volume system used to optimise game), so level makers use light sources located near Portals (which are placed between Vision volume boxes, inside of which rooms are located).

   Gunner shot out of da choppah

 

5zxLbpN.jpg

   Ladders and static MGs are another weakspot of AI that can be exploited if level makers don't try to mitigate them. If this MG was placed on ground level you could lure enemies one by one to it (if it is empty AI prioritize manning it over anything else AFAIK) and kill them without much of problems, instead of trying to catch them between boxes on carrier deck.

 

6AvwW0d.jpg

 

VPDXk1j.jpg

   Enemies are rather aggressive, and AFAIK how often they move/how aggressive they are depends on few settings that can be adjusted in Editor for each baddie individually.

   Guy from previous screenshot rushed back to area above me, when i found him, he tried to take cover, but was not fast enough. AI actually can try to dodge aiming circle when player is in certain range and map maker allowed to perform this type of dodging in properties of AI agent.

 

iR8fAna.jpg

   Rocks are placed close to each other for a reason - when outdoor object have another outdoor object in 10 meter radious and if "hideable" property is turned on for them (in Editor), AI can "chain" those objects as covers and aggressively push forward (or flank, depends on AI merc archetype). 

 

bP7sUk8.jpg

   Wow, wow, easier, 2004 cloth physics, we are not ready to behold such amazing tech marvel.

 

O2HBO6c.jpg

   Guy with a radio and red shoulder pad is a commander AI (Merc_Leader archetype in Editor, it have subtypes, like  MercLeader_Defensive_M4_ that will defend certain area). Those guys change how groups of mercs work.

 

nYxS9pB.jpg

   Don't interupt me while i'm staring at tropical beauties!

   1 guy tried to scout gunshots. He found 4 more of them! 

 

6TCB9Ul.jpg

   I think they heard. Leader is behind a rock and not visible because of vegetation in the way.

 

IXBA50Z.jpg

   "Left flank, move forward!" If in properties of several AI agents "groupid" set to same number, they will work as a team. There is another property that is dictating how probable team work action will be and few other things, so mercs can sort-of coordinate their actions even without those officers.

 

2d6JKGB.jpg

   When advancing, merc on the right heard noise in the bushes. If they are in group behavior and group is lead by Commander, regular baddies can start to do "check" fire at bushes with short bursts. Guy on the right fired burst, one of bullets hit a tree trunk in front of him (small puff visible).

 

AXJsnWr.jpg

   Now right flank isordered to advance.

 

uy7Obt7.jpg

   Not best terrain for AI to move around in big teams, it is too small.

wQxC5MX.jpg

   That is one big ass Japanese WW2 tank. I think they oversized it.

 

C6tVLfN.jpg

   Gunshots made 2 other guys drop what they were doing and jump into a buggy. AI use of vics is heavily scripted, as they can't use them effectively on their own (sadly).

   Review of Symbiot.

   Symbiot is a c3rd person action game developed by Targem games (developers of Ex Machina and Crossout) and published by Buka in Russia and 505 Games in the CIS under the name "Swarm". On the Xbox 360 game was named MorphX. Game was released in 2008 and 11 years later  i'm continuing my crusade to review all Russian/CIS made FPS/3rd person action games.

bDWKnBk.jpg

 

   Visuals

   Game appears to run on Source engine or something based on it, as number of models, sounds and lighting effects in some of places are exactly the same as in HL2. I didn't manage to find any good/solid information on engine of this game.

   For 2008 game don't look bad, but from technical/polish POV it is not very well made - low-res textures could be found near high-res textured pieces of map, stiff animations that sometimes look unintentionally comic (running animation for human enemies) and oversized model of Subway trains (for 3-4 meters tall humans) are some of more noticeable problems. Lots of grey color don't improve overal presentation of The Swarm. Generic design of most of enemies and locations brings visual part of The Swarm to boring most of the time and "mediocre" at best.

   "We will put a Generic Protagonist #9 type of main character in our story" said game developer pointing his finger into "How to create a generic shoty game" book.

   Some of enemies visual design is not terribly generic.

   Subway systems should be in all Russian and Ukrainians games!

 

SdhCpik.jpg

   When i'm standing in those trains, my head is on the level of upper half of windows, and i'm like 1.7 meter tall. This means that this guy is like a meter tall midget, lol.

   Gore effects.

 

   Gameplay

   The Swarm is essentially a Russian version of Ukrainian "Collapse", but with bio-alien-themed abilities and lower quality (hahaha). You are playing some guy that was infected by Alien DNA and slowly mutating into a monster, gaining new abilities. Action is based on cluncy shooting and less interesting melee than in Collapse. 

   Shootin part is based on using 2 types of grenades and 3 weapons (AK, shoty, alien gun), all of which are rather boringly made. Clunky controls don't really help to enjoy a process of firing at baddies. Melee is also not really interesting, lacks cool skill-requiring combos of Collapse. Problem of mixing of melee fights with main hero having weapons with him was mitigated by balancing melee and weapons damage in such way that melee is better at killing majority of "normal" enemies. 

   Abilities are usefull, but not really unusual - shield, "rage" mode, and 1-2 less useful ones.

   Several turret sections and bullet-spongy bossfights are in this game, but they are not good to play. 

   Level design is boring AF, endless samy corridors and tunnels for majority of play time without any interesting gameplay idea behind them are exhausting to go through.

   AI is dumb in this game, although for most situations they are capable "just enough" to not fail miserably.

 

ryy9cDD.jpg

 

Spoiler

O8iE0Na.jpg

 

gZQgGLs.jpg

   3 most annoying type of enemies - small explosive bug, Hound (on the left) that is easier to cut with melee in rage mode and invisible assmouth on the right, which is also easier to deal with melee.

   One of few bosses.

UlX8q5m.jpg

   Yes, this is Arnold Shwarzalein.

   Room full of laser-trip mines. I think this type of jumping puzzle was already used in more popular games.

 

J3IT5rA.jpg

   Aiming is hard for enemies when there are obsticles between us.

 

qZGhFa2.jpg

   AI tend to swarm (kek) same spots, especially if player is behid a corner.

 

U5mKSs9.jpg

   Best defences against melee-only enemies is good old "jump on things".

 

2goqyub.jpg

 

GKHpj6S.jpg

   There are like 3-4 turret sections, each of them is long and constant shooting slogs with ability to quick save disabled by devs just for turret sections moments.

 

ac3ip7E.jpg

 

siS9XXi.jpg

   Rage mode. Cuts through generic aliens with ease.

 

xRYgPiE.jpg

   Shield sends enemy bullets and projectiles back, you aim that projectile with your crosshair. Useful.

 

   The Swarm also have a system to upgrade abilities (with lower energy use, higher damage, etc), which is made as puzzle game:

Spoiler

YMUTxNM.jpg

   You can upgrade your generic dude in this part. Visually upgrades don't do anything, changes are minor. You can upgrade health bar, energy bar and individual abilities here.

 

d0bTn96.jpg

   Player can "suck" health and energy from dead.

 

4H1tQ3D.jpg

   A "terminal" where you can take energy and health points, plus connections nodes for upgrades.

 

ZCH8PKw.jpg

   Upgradeing ability to consume health and energy from bodies. You need to connect green and red node(s) to "activate" them and get benefits like more health taken from one dead body (Red nodes) and energy (green nodes). Connection nodes avaliable are on the right.

 

34IZ4FJ.jpg

   Some of buttons have same interface as upgrade system.

 

DSIAClb.jpg

 

bIKQ9dv.jpg

   Some of them are pretty elaborate.

 

 

   Plot

   It exist. Alien invasion, Moscow, McMilitary dude with special medical compound in his blood to prevent infaction was infected, started to mutate, but that medicine allowed him to save his human mind. You kill Big Bad Alien and that is an end of this game.

nJ8DtNF.jpg

 

   Conclusion

   Mediocre linear corridor 3rd person action game that is generally same and basically worse than "Collapse". Mostly boring and forgettable. In some of Russian press it got 7s and 8s out of 10 for "some" reason.

   Now they are breaching room near elevator. I don't want to use it, as enemies will just swarm around a door, which is transparent for AIs and for their bullets. This will be head on shootout.

uW2tBb2.jpg

   Reloading before pushing in, and because we at this point were exchaning fire last 15-20 seconds i started to take this guy very serious, heh. To cover my reload i threw a grenade to deny his attempts to attack while i'm reloading.

 

hNGyyEk.jpg

   Blind firing, this guy is a bit hard to spot in his blue unifrom against this blue walls/metal through grills. At this point i'm thinking that this AI was allowed to use "avoid player's aiming circle" behavior and he was in range when this ability can be used by AI, thats why i can't get a good shot at his head.

   Now he tried to push me, but lucky headshot ended this 30-40 seconds fight.

   Parked near old Japanese fort and managed to get into bushes just in time - Mercs arrived to talk with how mutants are wrong with occupying this fort.

   This thing jumped in attempt to reach me, died midflight. Stupid monkey.

   Came back to take glider and get to that island with guard tower on it. That was rather long trip.

 

MDuyWiT.jpg

   Nice selection of cars to use.

   UGL is very useful to cast power of 80s action flicks pyrotechnics against Crow's guys in jeeps with MGs.

   Map of this level. They wanted to make minimap, but only radar showing sound waves and location of taged enemies survived development cuts. Our destination is Archives building.

   Glider was used to reach a guard tower on top of this rock. Landed on this very small piece of it, heh.

   Test tubes rejects and mercs are in full war here.

   Firing few sniper rounds attracked some of Fatties here. Nearly died from this rocket.

   Archives (Mission 12, IIRC).

spQQtxg.jpg

   Heh, villain symbols are hanged here.

 

Spoiler

25jcaf7.jpg

   Mutants that can turn invisible for naked eye for some time, very annoying if not dealt quickly. 

 

mKAQjj4.jpg

   Hand grenades are pretty good against them indoors.

   DooM 3 was released after Far Cry, IIRC, but this feels like a moment from DooM 3.

 

YNAVxht.jpg

   Gamers at this point have Pavlov's dog reaction to red cylindrical things. See how many times i'm shooting at it and nothing happens? 

 

RhVRglc.jpg

   Well, this fire extinguisher was packed with explosives, apperently.

   That was quick... Even health meter have to catch up.

 

xWGITFG.jpg

   Those mercs are very aggressive.

 

yd8NBVj.jpg

   Strange to see flashbangs working against them.

 

3zcnNd3.jpg

   CryVision goggles with combined thermal imager and night vision look like pretty normal night vision goggles. 

 

FRs3aqC.jpg

   Bodyarmor is a thing in Far Cry. Face/neck shots are preferred to deal wth very elite mooks.

 

qLiE4Tk.jpg

   Mantis member with RL. Very dangerous guy if triggered.

 

nEd31mW.jpg

   Let's start to exploit AI! As they don't understand bottlenecks and rooms, they are easily lured in this disadvantageous place.

 

HsytSzU.jpg

   In this way those guys are also ez mode.

   Rocket launcher took out rocket launcher guy. Ironic.

U1TcrQm.jpg

   Last one, jumped behind boxes from me.

 

bD26vGK.jpg

   Again those Predator mutants with MP5SDs. Strange combination of relatively old SMG and mutated human with fantastical powers. It's like Gandalf with a M60 MG.

   Finally i'm out of labs, again.

 

Spoiler

   This guy is fucked. Gunners don't take position of driver, so he is an easy target. Although firing sniper rifle from rubber dinghy swinging on the waves of ocean is not so easy as it looks.

   Yet another Jap tin can.

   Decided to wait for some time until some of those mercs near me will calm down.

   Vegetation is so dense that night vision goggles with thermal imager is not a bad idea to use here.

 

n2bFd2f.jpg

   Now we need to blow up even more evil guy property. I like this part.

 

cLTmEzG.jpg

   Swimming on this boat with Mercs riding on armed cutters is like being surrounded by sharks while having pieces of meat glued to you.

   Next piece of evil property, please!

   Big merc camp is nearby (on radar few of guys there are marked). Going to use this GL to distract them.

 

OZSv0Ff.jpg

 

gSwD3h5.jpg

   Now they are slowly searching in direction of explosions. We can use this moment to get in from NE side of this camp.

 

Ra8k6GD.jpg

   Best driving skills of 2004.

 

HB1xt9O.jpg

   I don't think they saw buggy trying to climb on palm near camp entrance. Good. This is a stealth part of our action movie.

   Perfect moment to open fire and run away.

   Is this a rocket coming to me?

 

UvM892W.jpg

   Yes, it is.

   That rocket took our piece of this catwalk, now i need to go back and chew through group of orginised mercs to get to my objective. Weapon specialists are annoying.

 

XCieIw1.jpg

   He also triggered eveybody nearby.

   Another weapon specialist wth RL is moving on this narrow path. I don't want to encounter this group and him directly face to face.

   Those guys are driving somewhere on breakneck speeds. Strange people, buzz past you without even noticing.

 

PSbIap7.jpg

   From this angle merc camp is overwatched by this angry mook. Decided to go back and see where those racers went.

   Last target wasn't last, we need to blow up this ship. Is there anything else that i didn't covered in Holywood pyrotechnics on this god damn island?

 

6M0IVqM.jpg

   Evasive maneuvers on a glider are real, i missed one of Weapon specialist armed with RL on this ship.

 

tJbAWBJ.jpg   Pff, kid, go away. I should probably start to kill those dudes with over the top one liners, but my English is not good enough. OICW can take this job, though.

   How nice of them to not wear this bodyarmor and leave big ass explosive device for me.

   Boss fight! And of course it is a helicopter with Number 2 of Dr. Krieger.

   Go away, evil choppa, i'm hero of this movie! I will kick script writer in the nuts if main hero will not win this fight!

   Clearing remaining baddies. This one was a bit tougher than others, rushed to my left and dodged couple of bullets.

 

d1xuYf5.jpg

   Some of those ruins can be ... ruined futher. Could be usefull, if mercs were still alilve here, haha.

 

0ysH5ua.jpg

   Inside of old temple there are lots and lots of those creatures, lurking around in search of a bullet to their heads.

   Which was located not far from another MG position. Well, it is good that stealth approach is real option, it would be hard to dodge 2 streams of lead.

   Hitting fast moving cutter with slow-moving rocket is very skill-demanding task, heh.

   Clearing a tramplin for my cutter.

   This moment in motion looked cooler.

 

itxvl1Q.jpg

   Jumping on a fast boat in front of 4 mercs was a bad idea. I'm now trying to avoid taking fire from 2 on this pontoon bridge while searching for place to stand up (weapons can't be used when in water).

tiNSj6V.jpg

 

sCijOg8.jpg

   Trying to use GL against chopper. Not a great idea - this GL is not automatic and have very low ROF, making it more of a mortar-type of weapon.

   Although it have nise zoom.

   Only using one of million gatling MG made it go away.

   Things are starting to get hot. We are tasked with taking a nuclear bomb (WHAT?) from Merc's arsenal complex. 

JABkK1x.jpg

   Valery will help us in this operation. How exactly we got to this point? Capturing nuclear warhead from seriously defended compound inside of some god-forgotten islands...

   Supposedly she will help me with clearing this first camp. Although no commands or control was given to a player over AI companion. Great, this is an escort mission.

   Explosions don't produce heat signatures, according to CryVision goggles. While Valery is arming nuclear device, i'm tasked with working as her bodyguard.

   After nuclear kaboom we were caught (yeah, sure). Our main hero was dropped from gunship with M4 with just 10 rounds on island full of mutants. Last 2 missions.

   Jump from waterfall right into this forest full of mutants. 10 rounds to fight through hordes of meat, in hope to get to any place with ammo or weapons.

   Fatties (without RLs) walked out of forest. I need to lure them in this puddle, as water is deadly for them.

   Fatties with RLs are fighting with Mercs. Let's live them alone and find more firepower. 2 mags in helicopter are not going to get us far away from this place.

   Entrance to Dr. Krieger's place is defended by guards, who are rather hard if stealth is not involved.
