An extremely fun espionage type game. You go around and kill people without getting killed yourself. Fun weapons to kill people with and wardrobes too!:D This game is seriously fun and you should pick it up :)

The Ship is HORRIBLE as a single player game. Outerlight must have felt obligated to add a singleplayer campagin and while I appreciate the effort, the final product is just terrible. It's honselty more fun playing against bots in the multiplayer client.

This is literally the entire game:
Talk to someone.
They want you to kill someone else.
You walk to the person you're supposed to kill.
You kill them, usually by clicking on them.
You walk back to the person who hired you.
They give you money and tell you either the next person they want you to kill or the next person you're going to work for.
Repeat for 2 hours.

Sometimes they'll change it up and force you to wear a disguise before killing them but it's just..so...dull.

Also the ending is hilariously dumb and I'm pretty sure there's only 2 voice actors doing the voices for everyone.

The Ship Single Player is effectively an extended tutorial for The Ship's multiplayer game, lasting a little over an hour. The player is given a series of tasks from an NPC which all involve killing one or multiple people in a variety of ways while avoiding detection. It's a good overview of the mechanics, but as an independent game, there's not a whole lot to it, so I can't really recommend it. Additionally, there's a few mechanical issues on a couple of the quests that can cause game-breaking bugs where you have to reload your save (for example, not getting into an elevator and going downstairs a different way in one circumstance).

I can't speak for the multiplayer game's community at this point, and I suppose it might be worth it for people who intend to dive wholeheartedly into the game so they can have some extra experience when going in, but as a standalone game, there's not much there.

Fun little game that will take about 3-4 hours to complete.

I love the ambience of the whole game, the mechanics and the idea. It does have few bugs but they are not even close to be game crashing ones. The story and characters are surprisingly well made considering this is only a preparation for the multiplayer part of the game.
