Brother Glacius Posted October 23, 2015 Report Share Posted October 23, 2015 So yeah, no way I'm writing out the entire freaking title of that game. Sheesh. Anyways, I bought this yesterday and played the "beta" version. The full version is out today, so I'm not sure exactly how much was beta. Anyways, it isn't too bad. My friend called it the successor for L4D2. I'm not so sure I'd go that far. It is very similar though. Zombies = skaven Special Zombies = special skaven (choker/drag guy, hunter, spitter, and tank. You have a shooty guy instead of the blob though, and no charger.) Anyways, you have five characters, and they are somewhat different...some in minor ways, others in major. Dwarf ranger, elf waywatcher, bright wizard, witch hunter, and rieksguard. Each has a melee and a ranged weapon, and then you can have a heal slot, a strength or speed slot, and then a grenade slot. You level up and you do get equipment at the successful end of a mission and by leveling. So it has some RPG elements to it. The game is fairly hard. Harder than L4D2. And so far I haven't seen AI options in the game for other players. My whole one day of beta testing was always with other humans. The skaven are a bit too sneaky. I'd like some more ques when they show up or are around. L4D2 did a great job with that. This game could use it. Spent most of my time playing the bright wizard, and gave the dwarf a try. Both play very differently as opposed to just being a different skin. It is fun, the levels are very challenging. They don't do a super job of letting you know where to go at times. The end stage fights can be really insane. So far the only thing I don't like is the elf. I haven't played it yet, but it seems when the elf is on the map, you will get to the various chests and gear after she does because she is so quick. It isn't very expensive as games go, and it is different enough that it will take over my L4D2 slot for a while. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
