This is an user friendly game review/in game useer manual for Interstellar marines xDDDDD
Interstellar Marines, is an first person shooter game (FPS)
It is yet only in the early-access stage wich means that this game may, or may not be finished. But as it seems like right now the devs will continue this game. The first impression of this game when i first saw the video that plays when you first start up the game was great. the game has great overall graphics and suits pretty much all computers (within limitations) you do not need to have an super computer to play this game and it gives good fps.
In the begining you will start straight on the training course to get used to the controls.
then you are on your'e own. you can choose to play either single player (story mode/campaign) or you can jump over to co-op or versus mode. but first off im gonna talk about single player:
Single player means that you play versus the computer, (also called bots/Ai's)
The bots in this game are well made, they seem to be "artificial intelligent" they detect you easier when you stand/run than they do when you crouch and move slowly.
In game you will also have the options to equip lights (F), laser aim on your gun (G) or supressor (Q) when you use laser and the flashlight in game be carefull,\ because other players in game can see the laser and the flashlight (bots too)
they detect you a lot more faster when you have laser and flashlight enabled.
If you do not use the sound supressor on your gun, then be adviced. within a few seconds you will hear tons of robots stomping in the ground and coming sprinting towards you and ready to bash your skull in with their fists :)
the envoirment in the game is mostly dark/foggy so it is hard to spot enemies as well as it is hard to stay hidden if you will have to use your flashlight. this is why i often like strobing the flashlight for few moments as it can be mistaken to be lights in game that flimmers.
The thing with this game is that there are not very many guns. wich makes this game more focused on how actually skilled you are isntead of all the gear.
some peopels like it. some peoples dont.
the physics in the game are great. movement are well balanced as well as the gravity, in this game you do not have a bar that shows your stamina. but you still have it. so dont be sprinting around like a maniac. because this will affect how well you can aim when youre standing still as you will soon start to breathe like you have held your breath for 5 mina haha.
in game you can comunicate with different players. both with text and with voice chat. voice (V) chat is more prefered as the text does not show up before you open the "text menu" where you writes your messages, so they do not pop up on your screen automatically.
If you like to change graphics settings or general game settings and key bindings, then there is an fair ammount of options to use. and the game has a good compability to most screens. wich is quite good as i am using an 50" tv while i play. wich can be troubling in many games.
Also, every single bullet you fire in this game counts. the STATS menu will show you absolutely everything, and by saying this i mean absolutely EVERYTHING
you can see how many bullets you have shot, how many kills, how many deaths, kill/death ratio, wich body part you have hit the most. and how many times you have hit the different body parts counted per bullet.
so theres lot of room for competition with your friends about the best stats.
it is also displaying what your favourite weapon is.
The in game controls are easy to maneuver and is easy to get used to.
If you want to play online either in co-op or in versus battles there are plenty of servers in different locations so you can use the filters to browse for servers that is filling your recuirements of ping, difficulty, game mode and so on.
If you have any questions or any issues or maby even a bug report then you can just contact the devs via twitter, facebook or the steam game forum page, they are really fast at responding. and they are also really friendly.
i have already reported in a few bugs that aint a big deal and they responded within 20 minutes.
GG DEVS AND KEEP IT UP!
so i give the support area an 10/10 points just for that.
One of the biggest thigns about this game is that even it is a futuristic/sci-fi game it is still really realistic wich means things work out in the game as it would in real life, as an example: laser aim. in many games they make the laser beams a solid red beam that is highly visiblie to all players. but i real life you would not be able to see the laser beam unless theres some dust particles in the air. the more dust particles in the air, the more visiblie the beam gets.
and in the game. it is just slightly visiblie as it is under normal circumstances in real life.
the flashlight is dynamic light. it fades over distance and lights up the room like a real flashlight. it is not a static/flat light.
when you run, your character starts breathing more heavily. and starts to run slower.
if you get injured. your vision will become blurry and you will have an hard time to see your surroundings until you recover.
in the interview of the devs they say they wanted to create this game as realistic as possiblie for sci-fi games. and they did it pretty well!
in general this game is a whole lot of fun and really exciting and it is a great game and personally i have high expectations for this game as it got such big potentional to become something big and if you like fps games. then this is the game for you.
in general i give this game an 8/10 points.
reason i do not give it 10/10 is because of there is a few bugs, but im pretty sure this will be fixed pretty soon.
the campaign does not have much of an "story" but this is just what i like with games.
the multiplayer part is 10/10
but as i said earlier. this is still an early access game. so it is not done yet and it will improove over time. it is a good buy and i do recommend this game.
this is one of the best FPS multiplayer games made in a really long time.
Lock'n load. and prepare for having some real fun !
(i have made an in game video wich i will post up here pretty soon)
