Taking in consideration that I'm an Expert CTF Quake head... This game
actually consumed the majority of one of my Saturdays. Not your ordinary
first person "run in and kill" someone. This game is a more down to earth
style, instead of one shot your dead you player can actually be shot in the
leg and attempt to make a break for it. Until ReDDoG pulls out the Old
Faithful .50 Cal Browning, and puts a hole in your head. Needless to say I
was impressed and will continue to play this one.
Graphics in this game are astounding from the smoke and flash bang
grenades to the raindrops in the train yard. The environment is always
there to make your heart skip a beat while you hide and wait for the enemy
to come in your sights.
The controls in Rogue Spear are very similar to any other first person
game. Completely re-mapable (is that a word? = ) ) so I felt like I was
playing a slower version of XCTF without a grapple of course. The really
great things about the controls were the leaning around corners and 2X
magnification. That made this game rock!
Intense gameplay, and very smooth. Multiplayer is fabulous, we played
this game 2 on 2 and continued to play it for about 6 hours. That has to
say something about Rogue Spear. Single player isn't something to laugh at
either, with many hard missions, AI that actually pays attention and covers
your ass. Versus walking in a single file line into a room while getting
picked off one by one. My overall review would consist of giving Rogue Spear 2 PAWS up, and
another 6 hours on any given Saturday. I would recommend this game to
anyone that enjoys first person action packed games. With the awesome
graphics to the smooth gameplay, and intense multiplayer mode. Rogue Spear
is definitely a game that I like.
