Now usually with games I review now I beat the game once. But I simply can't (not because of the difficulty), probably one of the worst remasters I've ever played! I was expecting a great experience, I had always wanted to play The Chaos Engine, and after playing a quite shoddy port to the DOS, I was really excited and wanted to play the version most accossiate with. So I got this thinking it would be the original Amiga version enhanced. But I was wrong, becuase I COULDN'T EVEN RUN IT!! There are limited video settings only allowing you to scale the screen and remove/put bloom from your game. It's absolute ♥♥♥♥, meaning the game is terribly optimised, my game runs at 5 frames-per-♥♥♥♥ing-seconds. That's completely abysmal and ruined what seemed like a great game. Like what Kimble Justice said about this "save your money and buy something else". 3/10

It's... Chaos Engine. Nothing more, nothing less. Whatever you got on Amiga, you will get here. Well the only things added is one graphical filter and an option of having character turning/shooting in more than 8 directions using analogue pad. The pad option kills the purpose in a way IMO, as entire game mechanics is built on 8 ways shooting degree. That all being said, it's a great game and still very playable but if you didn't get it in any sort of bundle package, rather than paying 7 GBP go and start your WinUAE...

Repetitive, little depth, and bad quality port. It's not utterly terrible, but there are many better games of this type to try out there. Cheaper, even.

I completed this (and all but one achive) out of sheer stubborness. Dont get this! its a bad port, The controls don't even work as well as the origional and some of the achivments are insane (play for 24h .... yes 24HOURS! as one example)

This is a textbook example of how to ruin an old game. Avoid!

"The Chaos Engine" is good.

THIS is an abomination. It's not even a port - just a horrible emulation of the Amiga version. The timing is off so the game doesn't "feel" right, the audio is off, the graphics overlay for the PC version is minimalist - you can't even choose your resolution, just a "scale" factor which leaves you guessing how big "4" is.

Oh, and I'm playing the Linux version which seems to randomly freeze when it feels like it. It's also an INCREDIBLE CPU hog, but I have no idea why.

It also seems that the devs have been going through the discussions and deleting threads about the bugs, rather than y'know...FIXING THEM.

Don't encourage this sort of thing by buying it.

Pamiętam, w sumie jak przez mgłę, granie w tę grę na Amidze. Była to mniej więcej połowa lat dziewięćdziesiątych, a ja jako kilkuletni szczyl nazywałem ją "komandosami". Podejrzewam, że nie ukończyłem wtedy nawet pierwszego poziomu... Pojawienie się tej gry w mojej bibliotece steam wywołało natychmiastową nostalgiczną reakcję i kiedy tylko pokonam sesję, TCE z pewnością pożre kilka godzin mojego czasu.

Remake... 350 MB for graphics worse than original.
As i remind, original was placed on 2 discettes (1.6 MB in total)

Big pixels on 1920x1200 screen...
Why i can't change resolution of game?
20 years past and developpers can't reach old achievement?

Old Amiga version is still the best.

Przed laty sporo grałem w Chaos Engine, i szczerze, do dziś mi się ta gra podoba - prosta strzelanka 6 postaciami do wyboru, gdzie niektóre mapy przypominają labirynty z poukrywanymi dodatkami, do tego niezły steampunkowy klimat. Dla fanów retro, takich jak ja - to dobra rzecz, zwłaszcza, że grywalność pozostaje wysoka. Nie da się jednak ukryć, że gra dość mocno się zestarzała, i pewnie nowym graczom nie będzie się podobać, ba, w pełni to rozumiem. Inną sprawą jest jakość portu - nie zmieniono zbyt wielu rzeczy (grafika jest tylko przeskalowana etc). Ogólnie - z pewną dozą ostrożności nawet polecam.

I played this game on my old Atari STe joined with older black-white TV-set. Now on linux with color monitor I can appreciate the soul of this game.

Jedna z lepszych gierek jakie grałem na Amidze 500 (20 lat temu ;)). Nawet teraz całkiem sympatycznie się gra. Ogromny plus za muzykę. Zastanawia mnie tylko instalacja, kiedyś mieściła się na 2- 4 dyskietkach (dokładnie nie pamiętam), a teraz potrzeba na to aż 370 MB, czyli około 420 dyskietek (0,88 mb x 370) !?!?

I absolutely loved the original Amiga version of this game. It still ranks among my all-time favourites. This version, however, does NOT do it justice. Rather than being emulated, this version was fully ported to Windows and adapted to support modern machines. Normally this would be the preferred approach to 'modernizing' a game such as this one, but through porting the game the developers introduced a number of bugs and timing issues that did not exist in the original version. In a game where twitch-response movement and firing is key, this can be a HUGE problem.

Graphically there's not much to complain about if you turn the pixel smoother / bloom-effect off, but there is still a complaint to be made: The developers based this port off the AGA version of the game rather than the original ECS version, and as such they adopted the AGA version's heavily critisized over-saturated colour palette and modified sprites. The ECS version, despite having a lower colour depth, actuall had better sprite detail which was sadly lost in the AGA version.

Achievements and net-play have been added to this port, which is appreciated, however the achievements are broken and the net play is laggy to the point of being almost unplayable. The devs attempted to fix the netplay code and some of the sound/timing issues, however in doing so their latest patch created other more annoying sound issues which in my opinion actually make the single player campaign unplayable (unless you like a constant distorted screeching sound effect playing at all times after the computer-controlled character teleports to you.)

Normally I wouldn't hold such bugs against the developers if they were still actively working to fix it, however they seem to have given up after the most recent patch (which broke way more than it fixed) and have abandoned the game in its unfinished state. This really upsets me, as I at least found the game playable before the last patch.

I highly recommend playing The Chaos Engine (Soldiers of Fortune on the Genesis/SNES) but steer clear of this lazy, buggy, abandoned port. It's not worth the money at all. Just go download WinUAE and emulate the original ECS Amiga version instead.

This is more a rant that a review so bear with me...


Chaos Engine year 1993. Reactions "This game is too hard whine whine whine"

Chaos Engine year 2013. Reactions "This game is too hard whine i want this whine i want that what a shame i have been a fan my whole life whine".

I have not yet read any good points why this truly original HD remake game would suck. this game is rock solid in design. I can't even name another game that would be like it and have the same level of thought used to design it. And dont even start on the graphics. they are bitmap brothers style graphics. Their trade mark. Whoever wants to mess with that needs to jump into an icy lake.

Remake adds some functionality but doesn't try to add too much to the mix so it's just 'a HD remake'. Skip the HD jokes. it's 1920x1080 resolution so it's enough to qualify for the 'HD' title in my books. You can even add filters to make it look different - something that can be usefull when played on large TV screens. I personally don't need the extra gimmicks but i don't condemn the game for including them.

Since i dont have a amiga lying around nor will i download pirated images of this game then bying this game is the only way to go. No, i will also not get an amiga just to 'compare the original to the HD remake'. I have fond memories of the original and thats the way i want to keep it. Nitpicking about details that just doesnt matter and then degrading this game furiously is plain stupid.

No advances in game mechanics in 20 years? Really? New players dont need that and veterans will play it with nostalgia anyway. Formula was perfect then and it's perfect for new players too. Don't spoil it for them. Too many classics have been spoiled by trying to make them 'better'.

Remakes are always a bit risky for the buyer. some are money grabs. others are cultural events where good games of the past are resurrected and passed on to the next generation. This game (along with another Bitmap Brothers game on steam) is not counted in the money grab games section.

I didn't realise just how much the difficulty level has dropped in games over the years until I saw the reaction to this release from younger gamers. The Chaos Engine is from a time when players were expected to practice until their skills improved enough to progress. If that doesn't sound appealing, then you really won't enjoy this game, nor a great many others from the same era.

I loved this game twenty years ago, and nothing has changed. Literally - despite talk of improvements, this is a thinly veiled emulation job of the Amiga A1200 version of the game. It's a tad disappointing, but the game itself is still as much fun as it ever was. Hopefully one day we'll see some proper Bitmap Brothers remakes, but I don't regret having paid the £6.99 for this in the meantime.

I for one am happy that Steam brought this game back from the 90s. Not only that, but they upgraded it with achievements! For those that don't know, Chaos Engine is a difficult cooperative top down 8 way shooter known as Soldiers of Fortune on the Super Nintendo. You select from six mercenaries each with their own weapons, special talents and stats. The stats can even be upgraded every 2 levels by spending currency that you find on the ground and from killing enemies.

Speaking of killing enemies, don't think this is some cake walk. Every enemy is deadly and can kill you. Your mercenaries body is just as chunky as the enemies, so if they can't dodge your bullets, you can't dodge theirs without some quick reflexes. That alone is a warning, if that's not you, turn around and find another game.

The controls feel stiff, using the special abilities feels odd, you need to hold one button to prime it and press another when it is ready. Sadly this takes a while, to top that off you can often use two when you only mean to use one. The shooting forces your character to a stand still. This is not a dual stick shooter like Smash TV, you need to face the enemies before you shoot at them. On top of that collision detection seems off in terms of things hitting you when they shouldn't. Even with all of these issues, somehow it all works, its fun and entertaining. Map design is good, each level is almost a maze of staircases and walls that open up to reveal other paths. You'll never get lost and everything seems bite sized in the maze. Finding gold keys will open walls, silver keys will move objects. The object of the game really seems to destroy nodes / towers in each level to open up the exit door.

Chaos Engine is a quick game, each world has 4 levels and they feel like a healthy size, just because you can't just run through it, you need to take it slow. The game has limited lives, and you'll find lives along the way, but you can also buy lives and health every 2 levels as well. When you die, you restart at the last checkpoint, but lose all of your lives, you'll need to restart from the last save at the beginning of each level. The gun upgrades are nice and offer more bullets for a wider gun.

This game is also a forced cooperative game, meaning, even if you're one player alone, the game will stick you with an AI partner. The AI seems competent enough, but you'll still be doing the majority of the work and pushing forward. You can still use 2 player cooperative on the same computer and also 2 player cooperative over Steam, but honestly, I can't find anyone whenever I try to host game or join a game. You can invite friends, but alas no friends have this game. You can make use of your partner's special abilities as long as they're alive. Its a nice feature.

I was lucky enough to pick up this gem of a game in a bundle, and Steam has had it on sale for $2. While I can recommend the game at a full $10, its best that you wait.
