This either ends 2011 with a BANG...
Or starts 2012 with one...
To me, this has a Quake 2 crossed with Alien sort of feeling to it (Since I have actually played Quake 2 and have seen Alien Ressurection (AKA Aliens II).)
I can tell you. RIGHT now, dear readers, if you are easily scared of nasty monsters coming out of nowhere and attacking you screeching at the top of their lungs, DON'T play this game! Consider this a health warning. Now dont you guys ignore this and crap / wet yourself, otherwise i'll say I told you so.
Now onto the breakdown of the game. I like the fact you threw in the night vision level, that REALLY sends the scare AND difficulty factor up. I also like the fact you can buy and upgrade weapons, thats a really neat plus for this game laser sight comes in extreme handy as well. Miscellaneous: 10/10
The gameplay is smooth, and you can go at your own pace too. I prefer clearing out the whole level before I even think about leaving it. I don't like it when enemies from another level come to haunt me. D:< (I have yet to see if that happens in this game.) Gameplay: 5/5
I also like the balancing, the first level was pretty easy, I finally lost a little bit of health a quarter of the way through the second level in that really cramped hallway and room with the flickering light in it. The night vision level, which I stopped on my first playthrough of this game, gave me the shivers. Way to use the natural human fear of the dark. Balancing & Difficulty: 5/5
The graphics are great, so are the SFX. The fact the EBE's make a noise when they see you is actually a good early warning for an incoming enemy, i found that useful to immediately eliminate threats. Graphics & SFX: 5/5
The fact you used both a money AND an XP system at once is a great idea that I think is perfect, if not a MUST for games like this, FPS's such as Raze 2, and RPG games like Sonny, stick with it man! Bonus: +2/+0
My only reccomendations if you decide to make a sequel are an expanded array of weapons (I.E a grenade launcher, a weapon which the shots of bounce off walls a certain number of times, etc.), upgrades for sight and radar ( The radar which btw was VERY useful), and upgrades for armor and maximum health. Other than that this game easily excels in every category. Hope to see an outpost 2 from you soon. Until then I will keep hacking, or should I say, "Shooting" away at this game.
10/10 from me, though I wish it was possible to give a 12/10.
