It looks neat, but I have too much on my plate right now.

You should get it and be our test puppy!

I watched the video for this on Steam... it looks really interesting. But considering I'm using my laptop (HP Pavilion tx2z) until I can get my desktop going I see no reason to be purchasing more games.

But it does look very interesting. I plan to grab it, eventually.

The graphics are like Far Cry but with better shadows and a lens flare to simulate a fake sun shafts . The gameplay ... looks old , a B serie FPS for console .













Looks bad

It might look like Far Cry in screenshots in first person mode a little but the movement and aiming do not. This feels stiff.

Actually there are a lot of games that have bad voice acting on purpose, and often I find it awesome. Didn't Farcry do this, actually? The PC one, not the console game.

Anyway, those shots look ok, but far from great.

I'm going to paint your little read wagon.

With threats like that it HAS to be on purpose... Either that or the translation to English failed...
