Zeno clash a first person shooter game set in a crazy some what cave man style world full of mystery and oddity. Sit back and gaze a pone this beautiful word while trying to not die by suicidal squirrels with bombs strapped to them.
Game Play: 8
The game play over all is a typical shooter for the most part. You get guns that you aim and shoot while running around. However this game adds in a nice elemental of first person melee combat. While this game is mostly about shooting than melee, The melee does add a nice touch to it but it also has it's own problems. While trying to melee it tends to feel off and a little clunky. However if you can get the melee down it's pretty fun. Some of the weapons you have are duel Pistols, a rifle, a crossbow, skull grenades, and more. Each has an alt fire that can be used. Pretty much like most other shooters it's mainly point and shoot not much else.
There isn't many bosses to fight in game. However this game has one of my most favorite boss fights of all time. You'll find yourself fighting a blind bounty hunter who sits on top of a dinosaur's head that is at least fifty feet above you. Who gives you a rift to make it far for you to fight him. He sits up there shooting down at you. While tossing down squirrels with bombs strapped to them to chase you around and blow up that you have to kick around and avoid. Yes... you did read that right... mother ♥♥♥♥ing squirrels with mother ♥♥♥♥ing bombs strapped to there mother ♥♥♥♥ing backs! How can you NOT like this boss fight! It is so odd but yet so much fun!
The story takes place in a fictional fantasy world called Zenozoik, and begins in a town called Halstedom. You play as ghat the protagonist of the game, You are running away from your home village after being hunted by everyone from there. You found out father-mother biggest darkest secret and now in fear of your life. With your girlfriend Deadra you both leave the village to trivial to the end of the world to find answers.
The story has a great build up. It makes you want to know whats going to happen, why you are being hunted, and what is this BIG secret that ghat know. However when it's finally revealed what it is, you kinda feel disappointed. You have this great build up of a story to be let down at the end.
The graphics really sets the mood. Each level you go to has it's over style and feel to it. The last level you where just in doesn't look like the one your current in. Each level feels different and fresh while keeping to the primal cave man feel of the game. The graphics are all over the place from bright looking to dark. Some how it all works out nicely. You get a real sense of this world.
To be honest, the world to me feels like Alice in wonderland but cave man style. You have such a massive world with crazy looking characters from humans, to animals, to each scene. The graphics really sets this game up nicely. I can not express how much I love the graphics for this game and just how it all comes together to make this world. It's a pretty unique experience. To me this what really makes game shine the most.
The music does a good job keeping pace with whats going on. It helps to make the world to come alive with the background ambiance. The music does a great job to set each level up and keep it feeling unique as much as possible.
Even though the game play is like a lot of other shooters with some added melee. This game just shines when it comes to presentation of the world. You will find your self lost in this crazy mystical world. Wanting to see more of what this world has to offer. I was so immersed in the world alone just because how it looked and felt and with all the crazy characters you end up meeting just really pulls it together to make it feel so unique. I compare this world of alice in wonder land, though not as amazing as alice but it has the great mystical feel to it that keep you wanting more.
However like I said before it kinda of falls off the story with a great build up with a disappointing ending. However the ending is better than some other games out there.
I find this game a good game to play for any one who like first person shooters. However this game IS weird and odd. If you can't get behind outlandish things you may find your self not liking this game.
I sat down and beat this game in one sitting. Took me roughly 6 hours to beat it. So over all I would recommend this most to most people.
Also...mother ♥♥♥♥ing Squirrels with mother ♥♥♥♥ing bombs strapped to there mother ♥♥♥♥ing backs!
