Análises

"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."

Definatly love the gun mechanics, they should add this sort of complexity to some more games but map layout and overall gameplay / objectives are very disappointing definatly could use some more content.

It's bad. It has an okay concept and interacting with the guns is interesting but the gameplay, graphics, story, and literally every element of the game besides reloading the guns is boring, has VERY little effort put into it, and effectively destroys any enjoyment or otherwise interesting elements that you may try to find in this abandoned, rotting corpse.

TL:DR
Short, fun, interesting, but not perfect. A little unfairly difficult at times.

Detailed review
Receiver is a rather interesting game for a few reasons. The main attraction here is how guns handle. Compared to pretty much every other FPS, the gun mechanics are not simple. To reload, you have to press certian buttons for each function such as mag ejection, loading mags, cocking hammers, ect. At first it feels rather clunky but with practice you will be able to reload your weapon much more quickly.

In terms of enemies there is really only two. A taser drone and a turret. Both have weak spots and the ability to only have certain functions such as flying or the gun being disabled. Now this is where the flaws of the game start to show. On occasions when you walk into a room, you can be shot immediatly. Making the game rather difficult at times. Death will almost always be unexpected. There will also be moments where you will run out of ammo due to missing an enemies weakspot several times.

The story is kinda interesting and unexpectedly deep for this kind of game. Its experianced best going in blind.

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.

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
