Default NecroVisioN Prequel Announced

NecroVisioN: Lost Company is the prequel to the old-school horror FPS which covers the events that happened before the NecroVisioN story began. The game contains several unique levels, characters, weapons and gameplay elements, as well as a new main hero that tells the original game story from an opposing perspective. Players now act as one of the WWI German soldiers that discovers the evil forces unleashed by the war and starts to fight against them. Eventually the player leads soldiers from all the nations gathered on the front through massive battles against the zombies and demons. Finally players become the first Necromancer that was defeated by Simon Bukner in NecroVisioN.

The comparisons to Serious Sam and Painkiller made me stay away from NecroVision completely. I used cheats to finish SS and never finished Painkiller because they were both tedious and repetitive. But I have to say... that trailer looked awesome.

I guess I'll have to grab the demo to give it a shot.

I loved Painkiller and Serious Sam. Tried to play NecroVisiosn and found it to be absolutely awful. In every way. Graphics were horrid, as in EVERYTHING is the same color and texture (plasti-shine) so you can't even see what things are supposed to be. The control was clumsy as hell and it was like the entire scale of the game world was off, like playing in some cramped little miniature world. I don't mind cheesy voice acting, but in NecroVision it had me grimacing and thinking "now that's just f'n stupid". The sound was horrible...HORRIBLE.

There's "budget" games, some I really liked...Serious Sam, hell, even Will Rock. I even managed to play all the way through Cat Woman. Then there's low budget crap. I thought Necrovision was the second. I could not even force myself to play it beyond the second level, which really surprised me. I figured I'd really like it from reading about it here.

It was to me, like when you stumble out to the refrigerator late at night for a quick drink of water right from the jug...start guzzling and suddenly realize you grabbed the wrong jug and it's lemonade or something and you nearly gag from the shock of it.

Great pics... I love the above one most. I never got this game because Painkiller style shooters are way too f'ing hard for me.

That trailer was awesome. Might have to pick up Necrovision if I can find it on sale somewhere, preferably steam.
