I played the Sega Mega Drive version. It was fun.

This is not. It's not fun, it's not worth the money I paid for it. The only reasons that I haven't uninstalled it are due to the nostalgia I get from playing it every now and then, as well as it's not taking up a lot of hard disk space. But seriously, you're better off downloading an emulator for the consoles and getting the rom if you're planning to play the game at all.

It's supposed to be a "remastered" version of the original game, but little about this game seems "remastered". Pointless and useless features don't count, especially those that make the game look worse.

Online multiplayer is poorly optimized. The framerate drops drastically even if you're playing with a teammate sitting right next to you in the same room. As I have mentioned earlier, if you want to play with a friend, get the emulator and play local co-op. Unless playing Chaos Engine on 0.5x speed is a fine thing for you.

1/10 Would download Sega Mega Drive emulator and Chaos Engine rom again

Pro:
Cyberpunk
At times fun
Cards & achieves
Captions (a nice bonus)
Low system specs


Con:
Gets repetitive very fast
Port quality is low
$11 or $19 for 2 copies !!!!!!!!!!!!

Overall:
The original game was fun, but I've grown up since then. This is an OK port of a classic game but it just isn't that good of a game anymore. Even with this fact I'd still give it a thumbs up, except for the large problem. The price is just insane. There are many games on steam that are better or more fun to play for the same price.

5/10 +1 classic -1 bad port -2 price = 3/10 Pass unless you can get this for under $1. This is really a $1 - $2 game for a $11 price. Thumbs down for the price not the game.

This game is very hard, but can be very rewarding and enjoyable once you get a handle on things. Once you get used to how Chaos Engine does stage layout - with lots of walls and stairs appearing or vanishing to create new paths - and get a better handle on positioning, distance and pacing, the game becomes a lot more manageable. But expect your first couple of runs to end in misery - it happens to everybody.

They made some changes to the game with this port but for the most part they are minimalistic and geared mainly towards making the game look and play better. The new save system let's you enjoy the game without having to punch in long passwords for one, but it won't help you cheat like an emulator would.

Picking the Navvie (one of the six playable characters) makes things a little easier for beginners. His initial stats and powerful weapon makes him a very sturdy character, and his special is a no-nonsense smart-bomb. The other characters are more technical and require a little more knowledge of how the game works to use properly.

Playing online with a friend is an absolute blast, but the netcode is so-so.

Hi guys,

I was looking for a good gift for my dad who is an Amiga games fan. I found this game (I was playing it with my dad on Amiga a few years ago) and I thought it is a really nice gift for him. I saw that this game was not recommended by players but I thought that they just don't understand old games.

I wasn't actually right. I had to purchase this game twice: for me and my dad. What we actually found (this version problems):
- choosing champions (however I should call them) and purchasing upgrades just sucks, nothing changed since Amiga game and this is definietly not good idea for keyboards. It is so idiotic,
- graphic didn't change. I mean I like it but I gave too much money to have the same thing what my dad actually has,
- there should actually be some facilitations (other than saving game after each level) - no, it wouldn't be too easy because it is typical arcade game so pretty hard one,
- nothing really interesting and innovating about in-game control.

This game is a huge mistake. Studio did an emulator just to gain money. It would be okay if this game costs 5-10 euro for you and your friend. I don't recommend this game right now. Maybe if it is a little bit (you know what actually "a little bit" means:) ) less.

Of course if you want to play with me (I am going to finish this game anyway - I don't wanna waste that much money) - write to me.

Watch videos, I think I'll record also The Chaos Engine soon. www.youtube.com/c/PearlyEu

Bye and see you soon in other reviews!
Regards,
Pearly

Bad port.
It has many bugs and audio glitches that the original Amiga game didn't have.
In the game ending they had to cut-out half of the speech of Baron Fortesque because the video is way faster than the audio.
A great game like this deserves a much better port.
