dogbert Posted July 10, 2005 Report Share Posted July 10, 2005 Rented "Raze's Hell", thanks to Gamefly, and have spent an hour or two playing it so far. It's very reminiscent of Armed & Dangerous to me, third person perspective shooter, with organic terrain ala A&D. However, the look/feel of the setting is much more fantasy in Raze's Hell. The plot is your the evil baddy for once, getting to kill lots of cute & cuddlies who are out to save your village from its ugliness by destroying it, basically. It's actually a political satire of the current American administration. Seriously. Gameplay is okay so far - slower paced than A&D, with fewer ammo types available to me so far. There's a stealth element, but in practice, it's more a case of planning your attack using the terrain, sniping enemies from afair before going in guns blazing. I'm enjoying it, but it's far from essential & at most a diversion. When I rented it, I didn't know there was full XBL support. Unfortunately there's even less players on it than Carve. Zero. Ziltch. Nada. The developer is Artech Studios, best known for well, nothing. They're a 'port house' developing lots of licenced properties, most recently Trivial Pursuits Unhinged. That showed promise as does this. It's a shame to see a studio try to break out to do something original with such mundane results. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
