NT UPDATE 08/18/2014

Just added two maps, nt_engage_ctg and nt_disengage_ctg to the official build. Also a couple fixes to 2 existing maps... (nt_transit_ctg had a map leak causing fps loss, and nt_ridgeline_ctg had a tree that people were getting stuck in. That pesky tree has been chopped down!)

About This Game

This is a stand alone mod and does not require SDK BASE or any other dependency such as HL2. It will run on it's own.

NEOTOKYO° is a multi-player first person shooter that provides a visceral & realistic combat experience in a rich futuristic setting.

NEOTOKYO° takes place about 30-40 years from now in a Japan that has drifted into social/political strife due to the inevitable stresses that come from changing times. The Japanese government is grappling with intensified external (Asia geopolitics) and internal (economic/social) problems, and there is mounting pressure from within Japan to return to the days when it exerted influence through military power and strength. A failed legislative push to alter the Japanese Constitution (allowing the Japanese military to engage in offensive actions outside of the country) leads to an attempted military coup by members of Japan's armed forces (GSDF). The coup fails, but was very close to succeeding. In an effort to suppress further coup attempts, Japan's Prime Minister forms a branch inside the Interior Ministry's National Security Forces (NSF) called GROUP SIX. They answer directly to the Prime Minister and are sworn to protect the Japanese Constitution at all costs. They immediately begin to hear rumors of a rogue element of the GSDF Special Forces (JINRAI) maneuvering for a second coup attempt. These JINRAI are Special Operations Group 43 (SOG43), fierce nationalist loyal to their love of country, and a desire to put Japan back into a position of strength and power.

This begins the war in the shadows between the NSF and JINRAI.

Imagine mixing the cyberpunk anime "Ghost in the shell" with the competitive game "Counter Strike" and what you end up with is NEOTOKYO.

A beautiful cyberpunk setting, possibly the best soundtrack ever composed, and alluring gameplay makes for one of the best mods on steam.

This has got to be by far one of the best games I've ever played. I've played A LOT of first person shooters in my time, but nothing can beat NEOTOKYO for me personally.

Let's start with the gameplay:
The gameplay has been tweaked for YEARS before it was released on the Steam store. The game is easy to play but hard to master. You WILL get smacked down by players who've been playing longer than you. But camping the ghost/cap points and working with your team and communicating will DEFINITELY protect you and score you points. The teamwork of all players can be insanely good. There's mad amounts of sportsmanship, friendliness and forgiveness for teamkills. And you WILL get teamkills.

There are some bad apples in there, though, now that it's on Steam...

You've got a small but tightly knit community that played this game before the relaunch on steam, and 'NEOTOKYO Friday' is something still ingrained in everyone's mind.

The intense and well-made gameplay, insanely cosy community and beautiful artwork and music is something that will leave you yearning for more. (Did with me.)

All I can hope is that this game will get ported to the latest SDK with more features.

A rock solid 10 out of 10.

Here's the soundtrack (go listen!):

A slower paced FPS game that rewards positioning, teamwork and timing.
Beautiful aesthetics and a rocking soundtrack make this mod great, both visually and otherwise.

One of the most visceral, cerebral shooters around; add that kind of gameplay depth to an atmosphere that is clearly inspired by Ghost in the Shell, and you have one hell of a shooter. I've been playing Neotokyo for years. Thus, finally seeing it on Steam is extremely exciting, if for nothing else than because this gem of a game will be experienced by a larger, wider audience. And truth be told, this is the kind of title that -needs- to be played by many. Simply put, it's just damn good, and unlike most other FPS games on the market.

Imagine a group of people really liked Counter-Strike but wanted it to be like Ghost in the Shell and you have NEOTOKYO°

I know it's frowned upon to compare it to Counter-Strike but that's really the closest thing there is to compare to it.

General run down on gameplay:

* Round Based

* If you die you are out of the round

* There are 3 classes, each with it's own perks, disadvantages and equipment

* If you are not careful you will die really really quick

* There is an active cameo ability 2 of the classes get to use that makes you transparent and hard to see, moving around though will get you spotted

* Each class has it's own vision mode (such as heat vision to track people through smoke grenades)

* You unlock weapons the better you do in a round and unlocks are reset once the map changes

* Teams are pretty much identical

* Capture the flag is the most popular gamemode, twist being the flag (a female robot torso with no arms) can show the holder where everyone is on the map after a few seconds of hodling it

If you can get some friends to play with you and use the mic chat it's a lot of fun and rounds can get intense.

Is it original? Yes.
Is it fun? Yes.
Is it at all clunky? Maybe a little.

I'm keeping it short: NeoTokyo is an amazing mod with a great concept, and it has a killer sountrack to boot. I feel like it could incorporate a few more elements of the Counter-Strike series, but even as it is, it's a solid mod.

Good shti.

I'll try to keep this review as objective as possible.

This game is multiplayer first person shooter. First that you will encounter is the classes that are shared among many games and can be basically described as light, medium and heavy. Apart from most obvious differences - selection of weapons, armor and speed, thing that makes it original is their visions. Each of those visions doesn’t give you a boost like some games like to call “special abilities” because it depends about how well you will learn to use them. Recon has a night vision, and in a world of gamma and brightness adjustments it’s most obsolete function, but so it had to be for a class than compensate it in other areas. Medium or as they call it assault have a motion vision. While it’s most useful of all visions, its grayed out colors are disadvantage for every non-moving enemy that could be lurking near you. Heavy class named support had a thermal vision which would be most useful if there wasn’t for one thing – the cloak which makes other 2 classes predator-like invisible (with a disadvantage of making big noise when turning cloak off/on), and even more often harder to spot with this vision turned on.

The maps are more into simulating real architecture angles then making battle more fluid. You will find a lot of corners, dark places, hard-to-reach-but-can-be-done areas and especially choke points which will encourage more camping and demand more twitch reflexes a la counter strike then target leading. It might even turn the game into more team deathmatching then capture the flag, which is a bit shameful since that part is centered a lot more on better movement and tactical decisions among teammates. It has to be mentioned that with capturing flag players in whole team are awarded for more points for unlocking weapons then by simple wiping out the other team, as it can award you for as much as 10 points (1p=1kill).

This game plays and feels like a mod. It has a lot of originality and personality that comes from smaller tighter developing teams, especially in its design of dystopian Ghost in Shell world, but it also shows areas for improvement (or to better put it – area for balancing) which could easily turn it from good game into great one which would be worth a few bucks, pounds or euros. As it is free, there is no need to complain about that, but free to play games are turning into more and more of a “thing” this days and it may get harder to draw new players on tight budget.

Now the subjective part:
The community has been amazing, you will meet most wonderful people here, from child molesters, serial killers to rapists, I really felt at home here and they kept this game alive all this years.

I can't help but feel that there's a bit of 'old-community' up voting here, meaning positive reviews stoke the top pages. I understand why this has occurred as they just want to support a classic favourite of theirs, but I can't help but feel that whilst it will work in regards to download rates and new player averages, it's slightly misleading.

The game is Source and frankly, it's quite out-dated and should have been on Steam many, many years ago. It's an okay 'game', but it's not fantastic. The soundtrack sure is, but as a game? It's just a CSS mod in reality. Sure it does quite a few things well, but it needs more features and better UI design to really make it worthwhile.

It does feel amateurish, but that's part of the charm. I like how they really pushed the neo-elements, such as the 'hostage' being a 'ghost' (Android mainframe). It's got a lot of cool stuff, and for the right person this mod will kick ♥♥♥. But, for me, it came a bit too late and doesn't have enough hooks to keep me playing.

I've never been a hardcore player of this but the aesthetics, emphasis on teamwork, and community are reasons I come back sometimes. Miss those left-lean-reason-for-ban days though. Pick up the soundtrack by Ed Harrison - even if you don't enjoy the gameplay.
edit: apparently there's a influx of idiots downvoting this mod because of day-one problems. Please be patient and realize this is a mod created and managed by a handful of people, who pay for server rent out of their own pockets so you have a place to play this, mind you, completely for free. It's been out as a SourceSDK-dependent mod with little to no problems since 2009

One of the best sci-fi first person shooters out there. Being made in the source engine used for Half-Life 2, it does show it's age. But for it's limitations, it is not a bad looking game. The gameplay is solid, using elements from Counter Strike as well as incorporating a lean feature. The mechanics that add a dynamic element to the gameplay is the classes, and their individual features. Besides the obvious "scout is quick with low health, assault is balanced, support is slow and armored", vision is key. The scout class has night vision, assault has motion sensitive vision, and support has thermal vision. Why are these here, you might ask. Well, it has a dark atmosphere, support has smoke grenades paired with thermal vision and two of the three classes can activate camoflage, hence the motion sensitive vision.
Combine all of this with maps designed with realism in mind, original firearms that don't break physics laws, this is easily on of my top games.

So, one usual Saturday I woke up and started steam. Found this on the on the recommendation page and it was free and I was like meh, let me give it a shot! Downloaded it, not being very interested in futuristic games. Started the game and went wow, 10 servers and only one with acctual players. Still clicked and played and was I wrong, this is an epic game(mod :P)!

Played my first whole round and died instanly and got a team kill by mistake! Well, said sorry and he forgave me(Who knew you could plant a C4 and send someone on your team flying. Then found it fun and went to top of the score-board on the second round! Everybody was having fun untill a Russsian guy and a 7 year old Russian kid joined. You're probably thinking that everybody ragequit cause of their utter stupidity but no! These other guys trying to help us where saying there on the roof, or go right basically being helpful but the Russian guy started saying shut shut shut up in a wierd accent (I recorded but Fraps wanted to be a ♥♥♥♥♥!) So that guy and the kid started begging me not to call the admin cause I was gunna send the video to him, they are lucky Fraps stopped!) I hope that these guys don't make a fuss next time but today when I joined the same server (only server), people went like, dude did you upload the video, so I told them about how recording stopped 20 second later but they were still saying it was nice of me to shut those 2 up!

Now, never say there is less space in the maps, too narrow or something. You'll get a response like :"Go Play CS!" (This isn't hatred towards CS, just that the NT community don't like players asking why it's not like CS! (The game isn't based on CS!)

Now to end this!
Community: 10/10, nice and tactical in-game and fun to talk to!
Game: 9/10 , No reason to not give 10/10 but you just feel it doesn't deserve 10/10, no game does to be honest!
Weapons: 10/10 I love the way the weapon choosing system works! You get kills and more weapons unlock, now you might say "Wait' isn't that just stupid to let newbs get bad weps and pros get good ones?". Well no! I can choose a P90(Weapon you get at First) and get a kill on a pro with some high level weapon easily and you mostly unlock snipers and low profile silent but low powered guns but doesn't mean they are bad, someimes it is really important to have low powered but low profile(silent) ones!
In-game Music: 9/10, pretty good, get's you pumped up!

Cons: I wish more people would play this and would be great to see some sort of a competition so more players join in to play! Please don't add hats or buyable stuff but let's say a fee of .50 Euro is okay if you want to join the competetion!

Thanks for reading! Like if you did!

This is a game about becoming a pimp in the near-future. Set in the new city of Tokyo III, you join our protagonist, Starfox Sepharoth and go on a complex adventure with your Disney-themed penpals. In a tale of life, love and happiness, you will discover why counterstrike sucks and having more than ten servers at a time just doesn't make any sense.

Beautiful modification. I was playing it before it was on on Steam. On beta. Game is really awesome, I love it. NIcely done, great ideas, awesome maps and weapons :) Sad that u cant play with bots, it will solve that there is not much servers to connect. But if u have friends to play with, You will for sure enjoy. I think in some time, there will be more servers and game will be more lively.

NEOTOKYO offers some refreshing FPS dynamics between playable classes and objective-centered gameplay, accentuated by a surprisingly large choice in mapped environments. Its community (a rather small one, I admit) consists largely of people willing to engage in teamplay, which does players' experiences a lot of good. I'd say the best thing about the mod is its setting, however. A cybernetics-focused and futuristic look at Tokyo and its surroundings, with a war raging between two groups: extremist nationalists by the name of JINRAI, who's aim is to perform a coup and establish a military dictatorship; and the Interior Ministry's National Security Forces (NSF), who attempt to maintain the political status quo and thus fight off the extremist forces. The mod's art (modeling, maps, sounds, etc) complements its setting extremely well, and succeeds in immersing you within the set universe, even if its story is minimal at best. Even if the game's content does not succeed in convincing you of its ambience, it is hard to deny the large amounts of work that the developers put into the creation of said assets.

NEOTOKYO is by no means revolutionary, however, and one should not enter its universe with high hopes or broad expectations. It's a simple shooter with some fun and fresh mechanics (particularly its recurring objective and the classes players can choose from) with well-done art direction. That said, its potential is great, but is held back by the mod's age and lack of significant updates. Let's hope its steam release proves to be a communitary catalyst for things to get clicking once more. And even if it doesn't, it's still bloody free-- so give it a shot, people.
