I played the full StickPage version not long ago, and after beating it. i felt almost like i had finished a mildly exciting chore.. I'm surprised this has gotten so many 10's on NG.. Maybe this Demo doesn't have enough in it for people to realize how average it is..
Sift Heads 1 was one of many terrible rip-offs of tactical assassin. The problem with the game, and this game aswell, is that it doesn't do what made Tactical Assassin good. you don't feel like your a sniper, and you don't feel like you're looking through their eyes, or their scope... this game feels like an action shooting game, with precision sniping levels.. you see the whole screen at all times (rather than a scope effect) and you're aimer doesn't tremble.
Ontop of that, the pistol seems to shoot just as well as the sniper. Through the whole game i only needed the starting Beretta. I just happened to upgrade to the sniper once i could for convenience.. really, every other gun was useless. Magnum was basically the beretta, but less accuracy (despite a slightly better crosshair) the m4 and uzi things worked (for most missions anyway), but your ranking went to shit first click. haven't used shotgun though, so i can't say anything.
I'll sum it all up. The shooting, the graphics, the effects, all the basics are excellent. The camera views, characters (for the most part), gun sounds, lighting animation, setup, layout, design.. all excellent. but the gameplay is just set up terrible. there's no scope or sniper effect anywhere (except a small crosshair change), the aimings always a bit off, the cutscenes are long and boring after the first watch, and the mission length is almost random. one mission, you wait for 30 straight seconds, and have to take out a vaguely distinguishable guy right when you see him... and the next, you got 3 seconds to kill 2 dudes. Best example is the first level, and the one where you have to take out the running dude with the headband... (the moment it starts, you have to immediately shoot the dude sitting on the fountain, and then twitch your mouse to the side and shoot the guy running. he shows up .5 seconds in, and is out 3 seconds in. and thats actually true). Another example: Drag race mission. you do the button presses, and then after a short cutscene: BAM!! You have a pistol out, and a swerving car you have to shoot, that'll be off the screen in 5 seconds, and unhittable in half that.. it doesn't even tell you how to beat it. i went for the drivers side window for like 10 tries, before reading that you have to shoot for the tires that are BARELY visible. gay!
Now, great game. everythings good. except you messed up the gameplay terribley!! Simply improve and it WILL be a great game, like everyone else seems to believe it is.. now i really do think everythings great, so don't get the wrong idea. Other than those gameplay points, the only bad things are the lack of voice-over (which i dont mind), the annoying as hell menu music, and the lame main character. He's just a stick figure with sunglasses and a cigarette in his mouth.
3/5... seriously.. it's like you made an extremely delicious steak, with great sauces and drinks and everything, and then took a piss on it.
I tried being constructive, but i got carried away at times. Lol, Snakes.
loved the look and feel. like other people have said, the need for precision and the original bits like the dirrection arrows for driving make this a first class game.
however, has anyone else had the thing just stop after you shoot the runner in the 2nd mission? happened to my twice. i waited a minute or so, then shot everyone else to see if it would fail the mission. it didn't. i just stared at the fountain until i restarted. then it happened again. great game, but that pissed me off.
I played the full version and it's good.
Everything was pretty good, had to be VERY precise on what you're aiming for. The one I really got so pissed off was Vinnie's place when the crook threw a grenade and it told me to press UP which I did, but I still died. That def. needs to be fixed because I was precise on that one. Other than that (for now) it was pretty good. I hope you make more games like this.
Nice Job, almost good. 3/5.
i was just wonderiing when stick assintion 2 was gonna come out but this is just as good
