It's as if Doom with some of Quakes platforming had sex with Megaman and made this game.

Ok, if you miss old FPS shooters like Doom or Quake, buy this game right away. The levels are exactly like Doom with a Borderlands 2 shader.
The game gets harder after the first 10 minutes, and the combo killing feature makes you run like effin' Forrest Gump with a shotgun. You'll realize you don't even have time to get a decent screenshot because you can't stop shooting.

I'm happy I bought this. Really.

The closest experience you will get nowadays to the original Doom I/II. Takes all the good stuff from the classics of the mid 90s and adds a few things; some good, some bad.


  • Fast paced movement. This is not a console FPS made for controllers.
  • Nice music and sfx, very reminiscent of Doom.
  • Map design (while not perfect) is good, levels are fun to explore with tons of secrets to find.
  • Lots of bosses, almost one per level. Each boss has different attack patterns.
  • Interesting graphics. You wouldn't get the feel of the old classics with a realistic style, so the cell shaded graphics are a nice solution.
  • High replayability thanks to speedrun and score attack modes. Also there's a map editor and workshop tools.
  • Chain combos. This is what makes the score attack mode very interesting. I was a bit skeptical when I heard Wrack had a combo system, but it actually works. Basically by chaining each kill fast after the previous kill we will get a combo bar to boost our points and if we get it high enough it allows for a finisher: a more powerful attack for whatever weapon we are using.


  • Needs more weapon variety. It has the core stuff every game should have (mele, pistol, shotgun, machine gun and rocket launcher) but other classics are missing, like the grenade launcher or the railgun... and where are the crazy weapons? where's the BFG?
  • WAY TOO MANY instant death hazards. In Doom lava pools didn't kill you instantly, most of the times you could get out alive, and walls crushing you was a rare occurrence. In Wrack there are a lot of instant death lava/elecricity pits, crushing walls and the worst offender: spiked balls around some corridors and rooms. In a game were you want to move fast all over the place, that ISN'T FUN.
  • Loading levels is very slow (20-25 seconds) and I had to disable some graphic options for the game to run as smoothly as it should. Game could use some extra optimization.
  • Minor stability problems. Maybe it's just me, but when loading a save on the last two levels of the game (7 and 8) some times the game crashed. Always happened while loading a game so in the end it's just a minor inconvenience.
  • Single slot save system. Is this PC gaming or what? Come on....
  • Short. Official content is just 1 episode (8+1 levels) and the user generated content in the workshop is not a lot. I get this is not a big studio, but in my opinion the game should have more content (levels, weapons, enemies...).

Would I recommend it? Yes, totally. It may have some flaws but most of them are minor stuff. Game is very enjoyable and worth every cent.

I feel like Wrack is a perfect tribute to what PC gaming was in the mid 90's. It has all the necessary ingredients:

* Fun
* Fast
* Difficult
* Replay Value
* Gameplay Depth

I would recommend getting this game for one of your younger siblings / cousins / friends who are curious as to what real FPS games were like before the triple AAA titles from Activision / EA dumbed down the genre.

In essence its a top notch FPS game that does everything right. I have thoroughly enjoyed it thus far. Easily 10/10

Now this is the kind of "Proper" old school corridor shooter with sprawling levels and a multitude of constant enemies I've been missing. The menu has FOV options and there are actually Quick save/load features by default (GASP!)

Was quite humorous so far, I cracked a smile at several of the loading screen 'tips' and the graphic novel style cutscenes are something I always enjoy.

This certainly scratches the itch that I've had for these types of old school 90's shooters that certain other reboots (Shadow Warrior) seemed to miss the point of entirely by turning them into 'painkiller' arena shooters instead; can't wait for this one to be done and out of beta ;)

This game is well on its way to becoming huge.

The map design so far (on 8 completed official levels) is by no means simplistic - high attention to detail and layout is clearly shown in increasingly large labyrinth-like levels, with expertly placed enemies and items.
The graphics are of a cartoony-like nature, and work really well with the rest of the game. Personally, I much prefer the Wrack-style textures to that of Borderlands (and we all know how successful that was!)
The AI, pretty average in intelligence, are well animated and immersive to play against. There are a few bugs here and there, but remember, this game is not finished! Don't be fooled how some enemies are easily killed near the beginning, or even how the hyperblade can one-hit most non-boss enemies, the game is NOT a walk in the park on the harder difficulties and will satisfy your gameplay desires!
Bobby Prince, who has made the soundtrack to Wrack (as far as I know, correct me if I'm wrong), has done a particularly marvellous job on the music for the game, that really compliments the overall enjoyment of Wrack. It's really easy to get into the swing of the game when high quality instrumentals accompany your race to The Hyperion Generator!
Wrack comes with a level editor as well. If you're like me, you may attempt making a map for five minutes and get confused. We could do with some more video tutorials, Brad! :)
The fact that Wrack has a level editor creates potential for a very close-knit community, which could produce many fantastic map packs, mods and god knows what else! There have already been a few releases, and I'm excited to say the least!

I highly recommend this game to anyone with the current price tag, as the game is being worked on by reliable developers and can only get better. Carnevil made the right decision leaving SkullTag to produce this masterpiece!

(Apologies for the excessive use of exclamation marks)

This game is like sex for my keyboard and mouse.

Great visuals, insanely satisfying combat, awesome map design, and a pretty nice story, not to mention the added replayability with workshop content. Definitely worth it for $15.

Not quite the Doom or Quake homage it was looking like, but it is a good mix of old school shooting with arcade like gameplay elements. This should be ultimately played by anyone interested in shooting games and is one of the more skill based games to come along in a long time.

Wrack is almost a DOOM clone, the actual gun play feels very much the same, your skill will count a lot more than anything else. It has a very classic FPS feel to it.

The graphics are gorgeous, it looks really pretty, and due to the engine being very well optimized, it will run on almost any machine. Although the graphics look cartoony, it really matches the gameplay and story, so don't automatically dismiss it purely for this reason.

Level design is again very similar to DOOM, you will find yourself running backwards and forwards through corridors which will all eventually look the same, the only way you'll be able to tell that you have already been in that one corridor is by the bloody remains of your enemies. There is a small aspect of jumping puzzles, which is one of my worst pet-peeves in video games, but they are few and far between in Wrack. The pickup system, again, mirrors another classic FPS game, Quake - shields, health, bullets, random power-ups and plenty of different weapons.

There is a number of different difficulty settings you can choose from when you start the single player, ranging from brutally hard right the way down to easy mode. Easy mode is basically just for people who want to play the game for the story, you will not die, enemies die in one shot (as well as bosses), and you have unlimited ammo, it also enables in game cheats, allowing you to set "fly mode" on for instance. It was a bit of a strange addition to see these sort of cheats built into the game, but I suppose developers would rather people cheat using the in game built ones, than result to trainers to edit game files.

I have spent roughly four hours playing the single player missions on normal mode; I feel that this is a decent length as I think any more and it would start to feel stale. Although the story mode took me little time, there is plenty of replay-ability due to the level editor, and you can replay the story mode to try better your scores on each stage, which is something which is seen a lot in the earlier FPS games again.

If you don't really like the modern type FPS games we have today, like COD or Battlefield, and would rather play the classics, Wreck is certainly the game for you, it gives those classic games a new face. It's not perfect, but it is in my opinion better than any of the recent CODs.

I think £10,99 is a fair price, but if you can pick it up any cheaper, don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed.

This game is really amazing and it's pretty sad that it doesn't have more attention. The gameplay is very close to Doom, it's smoot fast paced action with a combo meter with multiple finishers for every weapon. Boss battles every couple of levels that are actually challengeing. Fantastic soundtrack that almost always has me coming back that matches that of Doom, you almost all of it uploaded on Youtube.

The graphics are very appealing. All of the UI and other menus are comic book styled. The weapon designs look really great and the animations make very weapons fun to use. The boss designs from what I have seen so far were very great. The enimies seemed be a mix of robot and alien creatures and you can usually distinguish each one from other rest.

It has fairly good re-playability, and even more so with the Steam Workshop. I honestly didn't dislike anything about the game. I highly recommend it.

Very fun game, clearly inspired by id Software titles with a score system similar to Wolfenstein and level design similar to Doom with only a few vertical sections which utilize the jumping and even rocketjumping. Fun secrets, good music, great feeling weapons, all really good. I have problems with design choices like randomized ammo boxes and instadeath obstacles, and I didn't like the story though it is skippable, but these aren't game breaking for me as the rest of the game is good fun. However over half a year ago I found out there was only one episode for the game and it is pretty short. Worst of all, after going through a maze of instadeath obstacles in the finale you hit a boss battle with no animations and no way to kill him. Very anticlimactic ending but it is early access so I went back to playing other games until it was finished. Fast forward to today and there is still no final boss, still only one episode, half the achievements devoted to beating the first episode but you can't beat it, a great game that has gone vaporware. The developers seem to have other priorities other than finish this game, like make a kickstarter for a tower defense spinoff. I cannot recommend this game in it's current state, I think it is worth 10 dollars but not for an unfinished game that probably wont ever be finished.

It's a great but unfinished game. The only episode (out of 3 promised) is pretty short. Buy it on sale if you really want to play it and if you like old school shooters.

When I bought this game, my expectations went a little high after reading the description and unconsciously I began expecting something pretty different from what the game actually is.

As soon as you start playing, the facts stated on the "Key Features" and "Reviews" (at the game's store page on Steam) vanish and fade away until you are left alone playing a not brilliant game that becomes quite boring and dull after a few minutes of gameplay.

The game lacks that special something that makes you keep on playing from start to finish with the same interest you have when buying and playing something new; I kept on playing only because of my obsesive disorder, so I had to finish the game to satisfy my obsesion, and not because of the game itself.

At the end, the only two things I liked about the game are: the cartoon-like visuals, and the fact that a soundtrack is included, but even the soundtrack is somewhat on the mediocre side, but I can't complain further since it comes on both Mp3 and FLAC.

- Colourful cartoon-like graphics.
- Includes it's soundtrack in FLAC.

- Gets boring pretty soon.
- Some enemies look lame.
- Lots of characters lack design.
- It's even worse than John Romero's Daikatana.

Apologies to the creators of this game, I can tell a lot of heart went into this, but alas, this falls far short of even my most forgiving of expectations...

I was looking for just an updated DOOM 1 type game, something reminiscent of HEXEN would have been epic, since their interfaces are all extremely dated.

The movement is clunky and the damage/combat interaction is not satisfying, it feels like I'm clicking on an HTML link rather than shooting projectiles.

I have no qualms with the environmental graphics, they were an enticing factor that led to my purchase. The NPC graphics felt off tho.

The worst part about this game has to be the audio. I feel like it was designed to be minimalistic, but instead it just got annoying rather quickly. Again I apologize to whoever put their energy into creating it, but I'm giving you an honest review and if I'm the only one who feels this way then great! No hard feelings!

All in all, it looks like I'll keep looking for that next Chex-Quest thrill.
