Akimbo Ranger Unit Reveal

[CLARIFICATION] JUST TO MAKE IT CLEAR THIS WAS AN APRIL FOOLS' JOKE

It’s the right time for our first player unit reveal from Task Force North – The Ranger Pointman Class.

Highly trained in the use of worn-out government-issued handguns, the Pointman dominates Close Range space without ever needing melee weapons or even holsters.

Once properly upgraded, he gains access to dual handguns and becomes the Akimbo Ranger, the ultimate pure CQB death dealer in Door Kickers metaverse as well as in a few others. Moreover, the handguns are now equipped with silencers, which obviously makes them completely silent and reliable.

Once a kill is achieved, the Akimbo Ranger automatically assumes specific celebration poses meant to demoralize all enemies within sight, as well as realism purists reading this text.

And what better and tactically sound way to celebrate Victory, than turning your back defiantly to the enemy? We’ll call this one, totally random, the “Over The Shoulder” pose.

“If you like your puzzles pausable and plausable, your firefights fierce and your tactical options abundant, this is sure to be one of the best things you buy this year.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“Door Kickers is a game about cops kicking down doors, and these doors are a lot of fun to kick down. It is also very hard, and I love it for that.”
84 – PC Gamer

“It’s a thing of beauty and manages to capture the planning and satisfying execution of more complex strategy games, as well as the gung-ho and the popping-off of growly man in military shooters. (...) It’s probably the best man-shootery game I’ve played in years.”

About This Game

Door Kickers is an innovative realtime strategy game that puts you in charge of a SWAT team and lets you command them during a tactical intervention.

Analyze the situation, plan team routes, choose equipment and breach points and coordinate multiple troopers to reach the hostage room before the bad guys get to press that trigger.

It may sound daunting, and like real world CQB combat, it sure is. But most levels can be completed in minutes and on the fly improvisation works. Achieving the perfect planning, getting the mission done with no false steps, that’s a skill harder to master.

Quick Points:

  • 2D, Top Down for optimal tactical analysis
  • Real Time With Free Pause
  • No turns, no hexes, no action points or awkward interfaces
  • Realistic but action packed
  • Non-linear levels, freeform gameplay
  • Mission editor and modability
  • Unlimited gameplay via mission generator and level editor
  • Single Player (but MP might come later)

Its a fun game, I don't think it's worth the $20 asking price but definately consumed some of my time. It's a thinking game combined with just enough action to keep you tense about it. Pick it up next time you see it in a bundle.

This game takes A LOT of time and skill to play. I'm still awful at it, but it's a ton of fun. One of my favorite things is picking off the enemies one by one with the sniper. Very fun, but requires planning abilities and skill.

Mods.

Mods mods mods.

(Don't mind the hours, I played this on another account)

The most appealing thing for me from this game is the insane ease of modding. You can make a gun that fires at 10000 RPM, create a nuclear grenade, have a BULLET weapon fire two shots, or have armor that makes your troops invincible by just changing a line of code in a text file. I'm not exaggerating.

Or maybe not. Maybe you feel like that all Carbines/ARs are completely stuck in Semi-Auto is silly for you and you want to make them fire in bursts or auto. Maybe you feel like a weapon is a bit underpriced or overpowered. Make some quick tweaks why not.

You can also modify any official level in the game. Not only does that give many easy templates to work with and learn the editor without a tutorial, you can have a two dozen enemies in the first map just 'cause.

You can also change parameters like how fast your troopers move, how fast they aim, their FOV, etc. I know some people like testing that kind of stuff in video games.

Basically, you don't have to go to an obscure folder, download three different programs to extract the contents of a file, and then extract that files' contents (and realize you're pretty limited). Nope, just lovely, lovely text files. They also have developer notes to explain what each thing does.

Some deverlopers say that their game has modding support. There's that and there's this. You don't get this much freedom in most modern games anymore.

Just you know, don't use any of that to cheat. Cus' that's just being mean and not appreciate the effort the devs made into the levels.

I hope this review does more than justify the price. (If it's not been already by other reviews)

Summary: The game is awesome & full of tactical challenges.

I've got this game in a bundle sale few months back, that's why it was untouched before. Recently I saw the announcement of the sequel so I though let's complete the first game. The game is really well made. Although it is top-down perspective but still graphical details are quite good. The game is challenging and it takes quite a precision planning to get 3 stars.

Game play is very simple to learn but hard to master. You'll be presented with a map with few goons (default game comes with 6 campaigns and 75+ standalone maps), some time bomb or hostage or evidences (campaign only). You have to choose 2 or 4 or 8 soldiers and deploy in different location throughout the maps. Locations are pre-defined. Then you have to invade the map and kill the goons or capture the evidences or stop the bomb timer or rescue hostages.

However, it requires precision timing and path / action assignment to coordinated attacks so that your soldiers don’t get injured (or killed). In hostage rescue situation, you’ll have to do it multiple times because you’ll die a lot or a goon has killed a hostage (strictly not allowed). This part is really challenging for softcore gamer like me.

If I want to give point to this game, I’d give 8 out of 10. One of the best indie game in recent time. A must-have title.

PS: This game has mod support; Steam workshop has lots of community created maps for more enjoyment.

Very solid experience with numerous challenging levels and campaigns. The mods in the workshop extend the life of Doorkickers quite a bit, turning the game from your troopers using basic SWAT weapons and equipment, to full on millitary grade weaponary, armor, grenades, etc.

Highly recomend if you loved the planning phases in the old school rainbow six games.

Very good game, no other game like this is out there and I did get it cheaper but do look into it if you like police force strategy.
As you plan your way through enemy territories and either take out the insurgents and mission sucess or your men get slaughtered by the insurgents and you have to rethink your plan

After proudly playing this game for several hours I can say: This game is amazing. It has an immense amount of missions with several different scenario's where the same tactics don't work every single time, so don't worry about things getting repetative, the only way you can upgrade your squad is via completing missions and using the stars you gain to purchase weaponry, armor, tactical items, excetera, so that means you have a reason to do your best. Is this game frustrating? Absolutely, but what game isn't at times? Getting bored of what you see? Want something else? Want to burst into a crowded mall dressed like stormtroopers with miniguns? Want to kill your enemy's with the power of Dubstep? Or do you just think the games music is shoddy? Look no further! Mods take care of your extra wants and needs, all it takes is to click "Subscribe" to an item on the steam workshop item. This game can also run on a potato of a computer, so no need for a super setup.


Overall, do I recommend this game? Absolutely.
