Anmeldelser

"Successfully reloading a gun for the first time through sheer muscle memory is easily one of the greatest feelings in gaming."
8.5/10 – Destructoid


"Receiver is interesting for two things. One, it focuses on a single weapon, the Colt 1911 A1, and takes it very seriously, using "high detail gun mechanics", which means you can "manipulate each part of the gun independently" (the beginning of the video shows this in action). The second is that it's a randomly-generated shooter that features permanent death. Taking place inside a single building, every time you die, you have to start at the very beginning again, but the entire game world is re-rolled. It's available now for $5, which given the ideas on show, is totally worth it just to check it out."
Kotaku


"Receiver didn’t cast me as some nigh-invincible mass of regenerating muscle. The end result, then, was that I felt exactly how I’d expect Real Me would in a combat situation involving live ammo."

The main gripe for this game for all the negative reviews is 1) the lack of content and 2) difficulty.

1) It costs £4 and goes on sale frequently, not to mention it's free with Overgrowth, a brilliant early access title by the same devs. Not to mention it was made for a 7-Day FPS challenge, and acts as a proof-of-concept rather than a fully finished title brimming with content.

2) The point of the game is to be difficult. You can't just press R to do a reload animation. You have to conserve ammo and fire accurately, while learning to reload the gun manually. That's the beauty of this game.

The point of this review is, it's an amazing game for its price, and considering it was made for a challenge the length of a WEEK.

The game is really hard but the mechanics, you could screw around with them for hours. It's hard to play because about the time you see a drone or sentry your dead. I wish these mechanics could be implemented somewhere else rather that the rooftops filled with drones.

Once you're dead you can still jump...
Would you buy a game where you can jump when you're slumped over dead?
I did.
So should you.

This game, I like it. You are dropped in to a seemingly randomly generated world, and you have a gun, with varying bullets, and magazines. The only weird thing is, it's not a normal FPS. You control everything about the gun. From the slide, to a slide lock, you can even put it on safety. However, that doesnt mean all these cool mechanics mean this game is flawless. The story, from what I've seen, is non-existant in the beginning. You need to progress through the RNG-based world to get more and more of the lore. That... makes me feel weird. I want to know what I'm supposed to do. Just dropping me off in a room/hallway/on a rooftop with no explanation doesnt really grip me. That's my only gripe with the game. It is really, really fun to just siut down and play for like 10 or 20 minutes, or in my case, 2 hours. You should get it, but do like I did, and get it while it's cheap. It's not for everyone, and that's ok. Thanks for reading, <3 Glad you could Receive this information well.
It gud gaem.

Es good, but not good enuf

EDIT: It's a good game, it has a good concept, I got it for free with my purchase of Overgrowth.
I like it, but I wouldn't pay money for it, it feels too empty and basic, even though it is cheap, I cant recommend it if it isn't on sale.

This is the game I want more of, more than anything else I've played.

The controls are a puzzle at first, as you sit in a dark corner of a sterile apocalypse and methodically figure out how to fire a handgun which has no bullet in the chamber. It's only a few hours in when I felt like a desperate but cool-headed investigator of an implied psychic genocide, a role I felt I'd earned by my mastery of the game's five-button reload.

Every playthrough brings its own flavor of tension. Whether given one bullet or three full magazines, having to overcome random chance as well as the robotic kill drones is thrilling.

Having played it this far, I would buy this game again at three times the price, and I would pounce on a more ambitious game which dared to include Receiver's mechanics.

A neat little fps that does guns differently. Surprisingly addictive despite its simplicity. It's a game every person who plays shooters should play at least once.

A different and interesting take on what video games have been doing for decades; not much in the way of content but a cool idea that it would be fantastic for some future games. Then entire time I played this I felt it would lend itself perfectly to a detective noir type game, something like LA Noire, using the shooting only once in a while to build tension and realism to the police procedural style; probably wont ever happen but hey, maybe this one random review will convince somebody to do this, and if that happened I would say Reciever is a great game for inspiring somebody!

Very fun, but seriously those flying drones need to be nerfed. I've shot them over 6 times before with the 1911, and they've still killed me. It's a very small fault with a very fun game.

Also, performance is a very serious issue. It runs very poorly, resulting in many cheap deaths. There is a mod that reduces this a little, and adds more guns as well, so I would recommend it after you've played for a while.

As of writing this review, I have only beaten the game once. So, it is very difficult, but so much fun; I love the realism. You will jump out of your skin sometimes just by a little beep, but it is worth it. I find myself coming back to this game repeatedly.

This game is incredibly difficult. And that's why I like it. It's complex and fun. You die fast and you have to get really good aim. This is basicly the ultimate shooter trainer with mechanics that no ohter shooter will ever use. It's just 5 euro's and that's why it's good for some fun.

If you don't like games that are difficult, don't buy it.
Don't like having to git gud to play for fun?? Don't buy it.
Are you hardcore and want to put some time in a hard and complex shooter roguelike?? Buy it now or just wait for sale

Omg where do i begin. i Love this game. I suck at this game. the gimick of mechanical deatail to how to operate your gun is extremely sastifying although confusing and difficult to get use to but the smart help system really eases that difficultly curve. Shotting enemies in different places all have different effects and learning these on your own can be excited although it is explained in one of the 11 tapes you need to find.

Lacking areas would be the voice over for the tape dialog and the lack of really interesting text but looking for the tape is whats fun and you probably arent looking at this game for a gripping story. also the aim sensitivty just never seems perfect for me i can't get the pinpoint accuracy i want even with all the dpi settings on my mouse.

overall i say that this game is worth the $5 and will last quite a few hours

Let me put it this way:
To preform a dry reload in Call of Duty: Just empty the mag
To preform a dry reload in Reciever with a M1911:
1.press t
2.Press e
3.press `
4.Press z 8 or 7 times
5.press 1/2/3/4 whereever your gun is
6.Press z
7.Press r
DONE
This game has taught me more about gun mehanics then all the Cods I've played put together.
Sure, it's hard as balls, but it's still an excelent game. You play it, lose, but you WANT to play it again.
I RECOMEND THIS GAME TO RELAXED GAMERS
