"... It feels refreshingly original and completely compelling."

8.4 of 10 —IGN

Относно тази игра

Zeno Clash is an action/fighting game set in a punk fantasy world. The game is played from a first person perspective and the combat is generally up close and brutal.
Experience a deep storyline set in a fantastic world. Play the role of Ghat, a man banished by his own brothers and forced to begin a desperate journey past the forbidden desert and to the end of the world.
Nominated in 'Excellence in Visual Art' at the Independent Games Festival, the original visuals, which make full use of the Source engine features, breathe new air in the fantasy game genre. The new close combat mechanics are also a deviation from traditional action in the first-person genre that will feel fresh for new and veteran players.
  • Engaging melee combat in first person
    The new melee combat system allows players to perform a variety of movements like deflect & elude combos, knockback finisher punches and punishing grab attacks. Learn new attacks as the game progresses and confronts you with more formidable foes.
  • Fantastic visuals powered by the Source engine
    Players will be immersed in a fantastic world, beautiful and disturbing at the same time. The unprecedented art style brings a fresh new approach to the first person genre. The surreal environments and characters will keep players wanting to discover more.
  • Survival mode challenges
    Jump right into the action in engaging unlockable "tower challenges". The player must overcome enemy waves to progress through the tower levels. The game will rate the player in different categories like speed and performance. A leaderboards system will rank you against your friends, so the challenge never ends.
  • Deep storyline
    Players will play the role of Ghat; the son of a impressive hermaphrodite creature called Father-Mother, whose children form the most powerful clan in the city of Halstedom. Ghat must escape from his family and start an incredible journey with his female companion Deadra, who will aid him in the dangerous lands of Zenozoik.
  • Bizarre weapons
    The game features an unusual arsenal of eccentric weapons that are built from scraps and junk. Hammers and clubs will be the most effective when fighting heavy characters that can only be brought down with extreme force.
  • The Zeno Clash Model Pack for Garry's Mod
    The pack includes 70 models with the characters and creatures to be used with the popular Source engine mod Garry's Mod. "This is a great addition to the existing library of assets and we really hope the fans will enjoy the content and start developing their own Zeno Clash inspired videos, screens or machinima." says Andres Bordeu from ACE Team. Zeno Clash owners can download the free DLC from the Tools tab in their Steam client.

Can't save and it's not really clear when the game autosaves... I've tried picking this up a few times now because the art style is really interesting, but it's so clunky. Voice acting is awful too.

Zeno Clash is a very interesting First Person Brawler, in which you play as Ghat, one of the many children of the strange FatherMother, who, after killing FatherMother, is chased out of town by his own brothers and sisters. The game's story starts right after FatherMother's murder, but there's also flashback sequences when Ghat tells his friend Deadra about the events that lead to him killing FatherMother.

Now, let's talk about the gameplay. As I mentioned above, it's a First Person Brawler, which means that for most of the game you'll be fighting with your fists. There's weapons, too, and areas in which you're required to use them, but for most of the game, it's a lot more satisfying to simply punch your way out. Progression is fairly linear, you'll go from point A to point B, fighting enemies in the middle, with some cutscenes here and there adding more story. Don't take that as a negative, though! It works fine enough for this game.

The game also has a challenge mode, unlocked through story progression, with two distinct types: tower and pit. In the Tower challenge levels, you'll fight through five floors, each one filled with different enemies, and you must reach the top in the shortest amout of time possible, while losing very little health; even then, if you do lose some health in a floor, you'll gain some of it back for the next one. The Pit challenge levels have you going down a pit, trying to reach the bottom without killing yourself (if you drop from too high, you'll die), while some enemies try to fight you.

I guess I should talk about the art style, which is quite unique; you'll find a world filled with bizarre environments and creatures; even some of the most "normal" characters, like Ghat or Deadra, have their bits of weirdness. And the soundtrack is excellent, I should say, with some really good tracks playing during the fight sequences. All of this adds to making Zeno Clash a really good game.

Of course, not everything is positive; even though I enjoyed the game a lot, it seems to have some issues with hit detection: sometimes I would attack an enemy thinking that my fist would hit them, only to hit thin air, while in other cases, believing to be out of reach, some enemies have managed to hit me. Even then, this isn't noticeable for most of the game.

So, to conclude, I can say I recommend Zeno Clash.

Zeno Clash is a uniquely set game with an original storyline. The actors voices are quite funny (done badly) but the graphics are decent for its time. The characters are very original but the combat engine is brutal. Switching from one attacker to the next is badly controlled and running from an opponent is badly designed. It would be better if it was an open world game and you weren't stuck in an arena every time you fought... The game isn't bad but I think its broken.

Looks interesting but descends into tedium, the story does not grab me, the action is walk a little bit fight, walk, fight without anything else happening.

With all of it's weirdness I thought I'd like this game but it is just tedious and boring. The fights started to feel like a chore very quickly and without anything of note between fights, I can't see any reason to play this game.

After the constant grind of games with top-end graphics it was kinda nice to pull back to something simpler and just give a good beat-down. The fighting part was almost like going back to Mike Tyson's "Punch-Out". The shooting, with simpler restrictions, was fun too.

I really enjoy this game :)

Quick Summary: Zeno Clash is built on the Half Life 2 Source engine, so that should give you an idea what to expect in terms of graphics and hardware requirements. However in gameplay and art style the games are completely different. I gave Zeno Clash a try because my video card crapped out a while back and I wanted to try something less hardware intensive while I waited for a replacement. It was a fun game, but it’s definitely not for everyone.

First off, note that the world of Zeno Clash is weird and alien while seeming like it could possibly be a post-apocalyptic Earth (it’s not). The “people” speak English but mix in strange words and phrases like it was an adaptation of a novel. Many citizens of this world are also a mix, of human and animal. Some of the people you’ll encounter are fully human while others look like bird men, elephant men, or just completely original beasts. The environment is sort of stone age with some odd guns/crossbows/magic thrown in (fish guns?). You play a human looking dude named Ghat who for some reason is being chased down by his former brothers and sisters. You and your one friend in the world are on a quest to bring justice to the children of Father/Mother (the main antagonist) even as these children fight you every step of the way.

While I mentioned guns earlier, the game is mostly melee fighting, and you’ll need to get comfortable dodging and blocking blows from enemies, sometimes simultaneously from different sides. The guns are mostly weak pea shooters but can be helpful if you get ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off from trading punches with a bunch of cheaters. Unlike kung-fu movies, these guys like to all attack at the same time. There is some variety in enemy types, but they’re mostly the same fighting style with character appearances. It’s the really big dudes that you need to watch out for.

Pros:
+Weird story that keeps you thinking. You’ll probably spend a bunch of the time trying to figure out what’s going on, and what happened leading to Ghat’s predicament.
+The melee fighting system is fun, though challenging since you’re playing in First Person Shooter perspective and can only really concentrate on one guy at a time.

Cons:
-The graphics are rather dated, since the game is pretty old
-There’s no “easy mode” for people who just want to experience the story. The game’s difficulty can be brutal for new players at certain point. The challenge levels seem more frustrating than they’re worth, especially when you’re forced to fight a whole group at once, and your “target lock” messes with your repositioning efforts.

Overall, if you’ve run out of games to play or just want to try something weird, you can do a lot worse than Zeno Clash.

Fun game, classic fist fight with the odd ranged weapon. Voice actting is ok and the story and design of all the creatures is just weird, not that thats a bad thing. Won't spoil anything but I must say, ending is sort of a downer in my opinion and a warning to all reading this, when the credits end you will get a black screen which you have to manually get out of since you will not be brought but to the menu automatically.

Short but perfectly proportioned. Something you play for the "experience" rather than the game play (which tbh probably could sustain anything longer than the 3-4 hours it'll take you to finish it.) Occasionally floaty and unresponsive controls, but the visuals are weird and wonderful, and the story is compelling and original. Definitly pick it up if you see it in the steam sale bargain bin.

Zeno Clash is a beat'em up style fighting game with a dash of first person shooter added into the mix. This game uses Valve's Source engine and was released in April 2009. The xBox got it's version a year later in 2010, but for some reason, got a "Ultimate Edition" with content that cannot be accessed on the PC version. You play as a young warrior named Ghat, and you are on the run from your family as you have accidentally killed your father in an explosion. You have a female companion by the name of Deadra who helps save Ghat along the way.

The gameplay is whilst looks like it is a very generic fighting game, it feels different. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but the gameplay seemed a little off to begin with. The tutorial gives a very good introduction into the basics of fighting and dodging, as well as helps you along the way with controls and early combos. You have the usual quick attacks, powerful attacks, dodges, and blocks as you would expect. Zeno Clash also adds in a little gun combat too, which again, almost feels a little bit off. There is no auto reload on the weapons, which is not always a bad thing, but most fps style games now days at least auto reload once you have emptied your round/clip. You also cannot fire you run unless you are looking down the scope of it; meaning you will probably end up throwing your weapon around a lot like I did as I was just trying to shoot from the hip.

Every level is essentially a fight scene, you have a set amount of opponents which are introduced at the start of each stage, and the aim is to kill them, simples. Zeno Clash has a very good aiming system meaning you can rotate between various different enemies and have the camera automatically face the location they are in.

The majority of Zeno Clash's graphics are really top notch; something we should expect from a Source Engine game though. This game is six years old and still looks like a current generation game in my eyes. I played this on a 4K resolution and it looked absolutely stunning (for the most part). Where I ran into a weird graphic problem, was the tutorial. I am not sure whether it was a bug or glitch for me, but the resolution/texture quality/anti aliasing, was absurdly bad on all the tutorial scenes. I really didn't know what was happening, I went from looking at a stunning 4k rendered world, to something which looks like a SNES has just produced. Like I said, this only happened for me on the tutorial levels, the rest of the game was absolutely fine.

Zeno Clash has a good story; one that has a lot of olive branches into a few smaller stories, but focuses on the main story for the majority of the time. The game ends well and will leave you wanting to find out more about the world of Zenozoik (I just love the name of this place!).

This game has three levels of difficulty; I played on normal and had a sufficiently challenging playthrough, there are no points which had me running against a brick wall for hours - I had to retry a couple of times. I can see the harder difficulty to be a real challenge though, since the handicap fights can get real hectic if you don't keep track on where all of your enemies are at ALL times - you will end up getting your head beat in from behind and you won't even realize.

A full playthrough of Zeno Clash's story mode took me just about five hours; the rest of the time I spent in the challenge mode, which allows you to climb a tower and have your scores ranked every time you beat the final boss. In total I got about fourteen hours worth of gameplay out of it, so for £6,99, I am very happy with that outcome.

Other than the strange graphical glitches I had on the tutorial modes; I did experience a few crashes. This came from when trying to use anything related to the Steam Overlay such as screenshots, or shift+tabbing to bring up your friends list whilst in game; this instantly crashed me to the desktop. The game also doesn't have a manual save function, so you are relying heavily on the auto save feature. Normally when I am playing a game which I have experienced crashes on, I try to save as often as I can, so when I found out I couldn't manually saved, it made me very cautious and was often on edge hoping for it not to crash, which somewhat spoiled the experience for me. I also had a problem where the game would not count any of my achievements, whether this is because of the issue with the Steam Overlay or not - I'm not sure.

To sum up; I will recommend Zeno Clash as a very good PC game; it's standing the test of time very well, has some very nice graphics, a compelling story line and decent gameplay. If you don't experience any crashes or bugs, then you will have yourself a welcome addition to your Steam library in this game. If you can't really overlook the issues; then this may be one of the only times I say to try the console version out since that sounds like it is virtually bug free. Thankfully Steam does have a demo up for this game, so you can try it out first before purchasing - which is something I would highly recommend you do.

Tom's Score Card

xeno- prefix. from Ancient Greek ξένος (ksénos, “alien”) a. Having to do with foreigners, as in xenophilia, or more commonly, xenophobia. b. From a foreign place, as in xenolith.

clash noun. onomatopoeic a. A skirmish, a hostile encounter. b. Opposition, contradiction, such as between differing or contending interests, views, purposes etc.

In my imagination, the development of Xeno-- sorry, Zeno Clash -- started when folks at Ace Team got together, got high, and got onto the subject of ancient mythologies (Roman, Greek, Norse, etc.) and how weird they all were. I mean, if you want crazy characters and crazier stories, you need look no further than some of the gods and goddesses traipsing around back in the day. Athena, birthed fully formed out of the sweaty forehead of Zeus; Pan, the goat-god of wanton sex; Artemis, goddess of the hunt, who for some reason was depicted in various interpretations as being literally covered with breasts; Medusa, she of the stylish snake perm and stony gaze, being some kind of metaphor for psychosexual wackiness (I'm pretty sure we can blame Freud for that); Jeff, the God of Biscuits; and even some nutter who told people to eat some bread and drink some wine and pretend it was his flesh and his blood... I mean, ew, dude. I'm sure we have enough problems without adding cannibalism to it. So anyway, the developers were shooting the breeze about Gods and Golden Fleece and rivers of blood and whatever until one guy, as I imagine it, stood up and went, "Yeah... but like, what if... Dude! What if there were, like, aliens, right? And they were weird, like totally, heh, but then, like, THEY also had myths and ♥♥♥♥! I mean... dude..."

So that's where this game comes from, more or less. There is a distinct dreamlike quality inherent in the stories of myth, fantastical and larger than life, and that is the feeling you get as you find your way through the land of Zenozoik. It feels deliciously alien and new, in the visuals and in the story (neither of which go out of their way to make a lot of sense, but it's still easy enough to follow). You'll see and hear a lot of weird stuff, and sooner or later, you just go with the flow because it's weirdly seductive. Even running on the old Source engine, and looking a bit dated now in 2015, the art and design and imagination of the dev team comes through in nearly every area so that you will truly think you are in fact running around on an impossibly, impossibly alien world. Luckily, they do at least have one thing in common with us here on Earth: they really like punching the stuffing out of each other.

If you've seen anything about Zeno Clash you already know the basics: it's a first-person brawler-shooter. Way more emphasis on the brawling than the shooting, thankfully. You, a fugitive on the run, have a modest set of fighting moves at your disposal, such as light and strong punches, blocks, dodges, counterattacks, grabs and throws. Unfortunately, so do your opponents for the most part, although they will also attack you at range if they get a chance. You get a small selection of weapons yourself, and they come in handy once in a while but the majority of your combat will be served in knuckle sandwiches. And they were never so tasty: combat feels fantastic in this game. It's fun, responsive and fast, with a good amount of variety (though there could be more), and it's super satisfying to land an uppercut on some chump and watch him go flying. I didn't really think I'd enjoy such a melee-focused FPS but after playing this I stand corrected, it's ridiculously fun. I even enjoyed the few bits where you are required to tote a rifle or another firearm, although I am glad those bits were few. They're not bad, really -- the rifle in particular sounds great, and it's amusing to plunk away at dudes with the double-fisted handguns -- but save for a couple spots you won't really get that much of a chance to use them because enemies will do their best to rush you if you're shooting at them, and none of the weapons are viable at close quarters.

One thing you will notice right off the bat is the voice acting, and it is... hmm. How to describe it. Well, your first impression will probably be "Oh my god this is bad." And you wouldn't really be wrong, especially with regards to the main character. He is, let's say, from the same acting school as Christopher Walken and William Shatner, only he flunked out hard. His lines are awkwardly paced, and weirdly inexpressive; he speaks in a stilted, matter-of-fact tone. All of that might turn you off -- which is why I'm mentioning it -- but honestly, his weirdness actually fits the game very well. There is often dialogue that sounds so insane on paper, but because of the way he delivers his lines, it instead sounds believable and ordinary, which makes the bizarre setting of the game even more bizarre. All in all, it works for me. It may not work for you.

It's not a very long game (ignore my obscenely long playtime), but it's a fully-formed, enjoyable, weird as all hell story that will have you doing at least one or two double-takes because you have probably never heard sentences like these in a game before. The fighting is hard and fast and so enjoyable, the world is filled with delicious weirdness for your eyes, and the trusty Source engine shines through even for a six year old game. I don't know about you, but it absolutely charmed the pants off me with how little Ace Team cared for making the "right" game, and made a fun, unique, and beautifully bizarre one instead.

+ Combat system is incredibly simple and satisfying; everything connects and feels right, making this the game's greatest strength
+ Character designs are creative and interesting; just the right mixture of weird and entertaining
+ Strange weapon designs; very original in every respect (if you've seen the 1999 film ExistenZ, imagine the chicken bone gun, and populate an entire game-world with the same concept)
+ Control scheme is efficient, and every button-press felt natural and satisfying
+ Strange, yet appropriate soundtrack; did well to set the mood and keep you feeling mildly unsettled
+ Atmospheric elements worked well with the environmental set-pieces to make for an absolutely bizarre world; I must say that this level of creativity, while unconventional, was a breath of fresh air
+ Challenging, adaptive AI; enemies really keep you on your toes in the best possible way (save for a few, minor shortcomings - some of the bosses are also a bit too easy to cheese)

- Terrible voice-acting
- Stiff, clumsy animations
- Frustrating and unnecessary lock-on system
- Save for a (rather dull) Challenge Mode, and the ability to unlock cheat codes for the campaign, this title has virtually no replay value
- Largely weak sound effects
- Poorly explained, muddled plot with little character development and too many answers left out (topped off with a mediocre cliffhanger)
