Про цю гру

BorderZone is a role-playing action with a complex non-linear storyline in which the player can choose a profession to his liking (mage, thief or soldier), learn the needed skills and spells, create a team of up to 5 dare-devils and leave for a trip full of danger and unexpected discoveries in the world of Terra filled with various creatures.

Terra was born at the moment when the old Earth passed away. Due to a global nuclear catastrophe many regions of the planet became unsuitable for living
and most of the population was atomized. A new world was created - a world where magic and technology adjoin and people are not the only intelligent race at all. After several millenniums the inhabitants of Terra are facing a new threat. Gods come down from heavens and start spreading death and destruction on the planet. You are to enter a violent struggle and you are the one on whom depends the fate of humanity.

Well this will run on a computer with windows XP. I keep one around for old games just like this one. However my experince was short lived. My avatar got stuck against a wall. So yes this game has bugs that will never be hammered out. And it is a total waste of money even at the $3.00 USD I paid for it.

Pro's: It was cheap...

Con's : Horrible camera system, Bugs, no tool tips ingame, click to move instead of an fps setup, Inverted stamina bar, Can't even walk when out of stamina, a single music track that just loops, Items have little description if any at all, You can sell quest items and break the game.

However you can get a map once on the open road, Just not while in a city or outpost. There are plenty of options in the option menu, Just not the ones that seem to matter for games like this. I might try it again in the future if I feel like punishing myself. Just stay away from this game and save yourself the headache. At least I got a tradeing card worth 17¢ Not that it makes loseing $2.83 for junk any better.

BorderZone is a game that I can't recommend because:
- have a big price for his quality
- is a boring RPG
- you have to wait too much time to skip the videos or to start a new game

The only good reason to install this game is for the trading cards.

I'm not reviewing this game from it's graphic, gameplay, difficulty or anything like that. since I don't even know how the loading screen look like. I only "hit the play button and minimize"

Pro:
+ got this almost free ( from a cheap bundle )
+ steam cards to sell
Con:
- it took more than 2 hours to farm all 3 cards

This game should have an achievement for just getting to run the damn thing for a few minutes without crashing or hell just ran the damn thing at all.

Then you'd feel like you really accomplished something!

I can't even...
I literally can't even...
You don't understand how much I can't even...
If there's a scale from 1 to even, I can't.

Could not even get 3 min of play without constant freezes. Game looks like it has potential, if you like the old graphic style of games like the Gothic Series, The Guild etc..., But sadly, I cannot recommend this game, even at a lowly $4, since you will most likely never get to play it. At least not on a modern machine.

You'd think mixing elements of fantasy and futuristic technology would sound awesome. Well, it would be if this game wasn't the bug-filled mess that it is. Enemies ALWAYS get back up and fight after keeling over (making kill quests unplayable), getting stuck on stairs due to buggy path finding, and poor Russian to English translation make this boring fetch-quest simulator a total waste of time and money. Ditch this ugly, dated mess and save your money for a better game.

If you happen to like the RPG Aidyn Chronicles on the Nintendo 64, BorderZone is similiar in a lot of ways. Like Aidyn, it manages to balance between half-baked and brilliant, like the devs knew their game was flawed and ran with it.
The writing is a mixture between epic and carefree and doesn't bother with ye olde-speak.
Likewise, the world this is set in doesn't rely on medieval or futuristic presets, Kammir is a deliberately vague place bringing different ages and styles together. It's refreshingly unorthodox.

Graphics are angular and certainly "ugly", but there is something delightfully garish about them, deep blue skyboxes, super green grass, vistas that can't be fully categorized.
Same goes for the music. It doesn't even try to be tasteful and sometimes veers into almost comical caroling synthesizer lines. I love it.

The battles are standard mouse-driven realtime fare. So far they have been bland, lots of clicking, not very responsive. You get to acquire different party members that act by themselves, but can be given behaviour rules for battle.

One thing that is really bothersome is that your character often gets stuck on stairs, again, lots of clicking and wriggling needed.

If you have a heart for mentally handicapped, but cute games, give this one a shot!
Don't forget to install the patch which is available on the forums. Without it, BorderZone tends to crash or freeze.

I've change to Recommend. 09/21/2014

Original comments. 04/23/2014
Beware: The game crashed 3 times in the first 3 minutes and sent Windows into some psychedelic frenzy with CTRL>ALT>DEL to End Task. I turned off the Music and set Compatiblity Mode to XP SP3, did not crash after the changes. I played for 27 min. trying to get the player up and down some stairs in the first building I entered. The Player Character is stuck on the landing, acts like the stairs are an obstacle. Took 10 mins of finagling to get him up the stairs and still got stuck coming down, I finally gave up. I will be deleting the game. Do not waste your money, unless you want to play a buggy game in silence and don't want to search upstairs.

Update to Review 09/21/2014

New Update to BorderZone: There may be hope after all. I am going to try another go.

I installed and ran BorderZone again today. First I configed the video from Steam>SteamApp>Common>BorderZone>Config. Choose resolution (1600x900) on (Laptop Win7 64 pro) and raised some effects. Ran the game and all was well, no crashes, sound, higher resolutions and wide screen. I went straight to the stairs in the Blacksmith building that gave me all the grief the fist time around. Player Character ran up the stairs like a champ. Vast improvement, very happy with the update.

I have changed my rating to thumbs up. The game is worth a play through if you are into reto RPGs. The combat is a little stiff and limited. I have put a few more hours offline into the game than is expressed in time played. The options in combat are opening up. Pick it up on sale.

Crappiest crap ever crap crappiest game!

Pro:
trading cards

Contra:
You need to wait 5 or more minutes to start intro videos
You need to wait 5 or more minutes to start a new game
Most of the time you will never start a game on windows 8
Don't speak about graphics
Controls? Yeah if you like it in this way
Change video resolution? C'mon, why you need 1080p or even 720p?

Btw look at the woman in the intro video, little bit too much :-)

Buy it in a bundle, i hope somebody will do a "Let's play" to see at least the end.

BorderZone sounds interesting, but is ugly and buggy. Constant crashes, no resolution settings and awkward (imo) control scheme are just a few of the things wrong with this game. Got it in a bundle, played it for the cards and now will uninstall. Buy at your own risk. 0/10

So the game has finally been patched to work with Windows 8.1. It even supports more modern resolutions now.

I tried BorderZone despite the endless amount of negative reviews because I wanted to experience the gameplay for myself. I gave the game a chance, I really, really did.

If you like RPGs and action adventure games, you will probably still dislike this game.

The aesthetics are lacking - the character models and detail in the backgrounds are weak and bland. The different armor and weapon types available, however, will actually appear on your characters - which is something I appreciate. The music is easily the best part of the game, but it fails to carry the experience into a positive one.

The controls are a bit sluggish, and there is no tutorial to guide you through the game mechanics. The learning curve is minimal to moderate depending on your experience with action RPGs. You will probably spend a bit of time trying to understand how the menus (especially the inventory management) work, and the interfaces are not very ergonomic. One of the most annoying things for me is the lack of feedback regarding item stats - I end up swapping shields based on what looks cooler, since I have no idea which one is actually better stat-wise.

Both combat and dialogues are lackluster - I played around with the character creation mode, hoping that different specializations would alter my gameplay a bit, however, I was always disappointed regardless of the character I rolled/made. You also are not given much feedback if you choose to make your own character from scratch.

Honestly, I would strongly recommend you invest your time somewhere else, as this game fails to compete with most alternatives. I also strongly advised against the game Space Hack (to which I received a lot of negative reception), however, I would even encourage people to waste their time playing that game before trying BorderZone.

Even after the patch, the game remains fairly buggy, and is prone to crashes. Would suggest staying away, unless you are able to get this for free.

DO NOT recommend.

Do you like the music in the trailer? Are you ready to hear it for 20+ hours? No, no one is. And no one would, because no one in their right mind would play more than 30 minutes of this game before quitting and uninstalling. The muddy, horrrible graphics hurt the eyes. The clunky movement will aggrivate. Please do not try to actualy play this game. If this came in a bundle, and you want your steam cards from this game, do yourself a solid favor:
1. Mute your computer
2. Launch the game, attempt to minimize (it may crash durring this process)
3. Come back in a few hours to verify you have the cards
4. Close the game through your operating system

Don't let the 12 hours playtime fool you - I actually didn't get to play it for even an hour. The rest of the time it was frozen in the background and me trying to not get the game to crash my entire computer. Stay away from this - You literally can't even play it.
