About This Game

TAKEDOWN is a thinking-person’s shooter; brutal, hardcore and deadly - like the real thing. Not for the faint hearted, Takedown requires you to bring your 'A' game - FPS fans looking for an ultra hardcore experience only need apply!

The player that takes things slow, aims carefully, and plans their moves right will overcome the player who runs in with guns blazing. Close-quarters battle brings the fight inside, as you would see SWAT teams or SOF units taking down small numbers of dangerous adversaries. Non-linear environments allow for multiple routes and tactics and add replayability.

In recent years, shooters have become homogenized. There used to be a wide range of different games to choose, from run-and-gun action titles to slow-paced tactical shooters focusing on strategy and tactics, but now most shooters follow the same model of big set pieces, regenerating health, linear levels, and “cinematic experiences.” The realistic tactical shooters with in-depth planning have almost entirely disappeared in recent years.

This game focuses on realistic weapons modeling, squad based play, in a close-quarters battle setting. To succeed in this game you need to take things slow, study your environment, and execute flawlessly. If you get shot, there are consequences. You won’t be hiding behind a wall waiting for your health to regenerate. If a team member goes down, you will have to assess the situation and reallocate team members if necessary to complete the mission. Don’t expect all of the tools and plans to be forced fed to you – it is up to the player to ensure their team is equipped and ready for the tasks at hand. With features such as realistic bullet penetration, accuracy, and recoil, choosing the proper weapons, ammunition, armor, and gear for the mission is up to you, so choose carefully.

Gameplay modes include single player, co-op, and competitive multiplayer. If you are a fan of old school shooters where thinking meant more than running and gunning or perks, or if you are just looking for something different in your shooter games experience, this is the game for you.

Key Features:

  • Fight Smart in Deadly, Close Quarters Combat – Players must think and move tactically, stay alert, watch, listen and choose wisely while setting up their squad for the perfect shot.
  • Tackle Engagements That Are Different Every Time – Nonlinear maps allow for multiple tactics and approaches to both attack and defense. Gamers must choose their gear to best execute strategy.
  • Out Think The Enemy – Gamers need to work closely and communicate well with their team to not only attack the enemy but to coordinate to secure multiple objectives.

I bought this game for $1 and I still think it wasn't worth it.
If this was free, I still wouldn't download it.
This game is unfinished and the developers gave up on it.

I want my $1 back so I can go buy something I can enjoy.

My opinion

Well, I got this game for free (well, 1 cent) in a trade.
At the first, the guy wanted to sell it to me for 3$, of course I said no, so he then selled it to me for the 1 cent final price.
I didn't know why he would sell a game of 5$ for a cent.
NOW I KNOW WHY, HE WANTED TO FREE HIMSELF OF THIS CURSE.

The ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ terrorists kill you with one shot. ONE ♥♥♥♥ING SINGLE SHOT. Where's the tactic here if you can't even get close to them because if somebody sees you calls his mates and then you are in a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ gangbang surrounded by 839347389274380947032198040731029847329 bots.

Seriously, this game is so ♥♥♥♥♥♥ awesome... if you are a ♥♥♥♥♥♥.

The engine this game is build on top of has better templates then the game itself.
It looks like it was made by a dormroom student that is still learning how to program while the backing on kickstarter for this was a gross 1/5M USD. Total Biscuit says it's gotten worse since the preview.

"Meet the game that brings back the tactical FPS shooter"...

When in development this game promised to bring back the tactical shooter. It brought it back but not in a good way. There are so many problems with this game. It is a buggy mess. Gameplay is: Peak around corner, shoot dumb enemy. Move to next room. Peak around another corner, shoot enemy. Move to next room, peak around corner and get shot. Take control of team mate. Move to next room, crash due to game ruining bug... Haha fun isn't it?

Good stuff:
-Made me excited when seeing for first time.

Bad stuff:
-Made me cry when playing for the first time.
-Customisation doesn't work.
-Bad A.I.
-Glitchy mess.
-Boring.
-Overpriced (devs should pay you to play).
-Doesn't work.
- I could go on for an hour about how bad this is. -
