So I finished this game, It ain’t bad but it could have been SOOO MUCH better if they wanted.
The OVERALL feel is that it’s missing a huge chunk of things ffrom the P&P version that would have been easy to add in…Right now it’s just a combat focused game. An ok turnbased affair .
1 . NO ARK DEVELOPMENT : The ARK in the current game is VERY barebones and the 4 locations is a joke really. PRIPPS BAR Doesn’t even let you have some drinks, The STORE doesn’t include Selling of items
EXPLORATION : Yeah sure you can explore , but only in a very linear fashion . The areas are very small and the only thing you find is scrap and maybe a chest per area after killing Everything. The AREAS would have been much greater if they were a bit larger and had to be protected and hold after taken, much like the system from Jagged Alliance. This is also much more inline with the P&P version of the game.
NO SURVIVIAL: Your MUTANTS doesn’t need to eat or drink , A HUGE part of the P&P version of the game. I don’t understand how this has been left out.
STEALTH/COMBAT : Once you learn that sneaking around is just a matter of staying outside the radius, nothing in the game will ever see you , but I can see Everything just fine, even in broad daylight. It’s VERY easy just stay outside the radius then start combat shoot with you silenced pistols and pals standing almost next to his friend will not react for killing hes friend. And if you are somewhat far away you can just use your shotguns.
5 . ROBOTS: Why on Earth are these robots fighting with the GHOULS ? That makes NO sence at all…
6 ENEMIES IN THE GAME: There is GHOULS, DOGS and ROBOTS, thats about it, In the P&P game there is all sorts of creepy beeings , Why did they not take advantage of this ? The ROBOTS (All manner of them) is even RARE , but in this game half of the map is filled with them, SEE POINT 5 Aswell.
This game is NOT WORTH all the praise it’s getting, It’s good and has it’s charm in certain places and if you are Swedish like me you will get a a good laugh from time to time. But it feels like a VERY hasty production with much cutting of corners that would have made this game much better. If you want a good Post Apocalypic game try WASTELAND 2. This just made me dissapointed
