About This Game

«Marauder» is a tactical strategy with RPG elements. The game is based on the book "Marauder" by Berkem al Atomi and brings you to an alternate history where anarchy and endless strife have become a rule. You will play as a marauder who is trying to survive and settle a comfortable life. At first you have nothing but a double-barreled gun and a handful of shells, but in time you will gather "a family", arm it, and learn to stay alive in this constant war of everything against everyone.

  • Game script and character dialogues written by Berkem al Atomi himself.
  • A full-blown RPG system to develop your squad members.
  • A small Uralian town with various different locales for you to explore (ruins, forests, military bases, underground bunkers); flexible system of weapon customization and a great diversity of items for barter and survival equipment.
  • Possibilities for tactical play and rich selection of combat situations – you will have to use stationary weapons, assault fortified buildings, operate at night, battle enemies indoors and outdoors and much more.

If you liked the original fallout 1, 2 and tactics and enjoy horrible russian translations as well as a cranky russian protagonist whose only real desire is to be left alone get this game.

definitely worth playing if you like challenging, tactical squad-level games. But bear in mind the handful of annoying recurring bugs!

detailed graphics
Immersive world and creepy Eastern Bloc atmosphere
Awesome combat
tons of weapons
Good skill, trade and inventory management

Pretty linear
Some slowdowns during combat
The final sections of the story are quite unpolished
Those above mentioned bugs
Story cutscenes not working on modern systems! Argh!

Is kinda hard to review this game.

It gave me some sort of The Last of Us vibe for some reason mid-game, some STALKER vibe thought the game.

The game is a tactical game like Jagged Aliance 2, if you played that, is similar to it with a system that uses time instead of action points.
Example to rise your weapon it takes around 3 seconds to fully do it, aiming depending on your skill takes from 3 to 1.5 seconds and shooting another full second.

When you come into the game you must come with a open mind, the camara is clunky as hell if you dont use some tweaks that are in the community hub, the game could crash on you sometimes but it didnt affect me because i savescumed alot because i feared that would happen.

If you look past that, you can find a flawed gem, for 1$ it gave me around 18 hours, headshoting people across the map and see their ragdoll fall never got old.

Realtime RPG/Strategy with active pause (means, sheduling orders during pause is prefereble), worthy successor for 7.62/Brigade E5

Comparation with 7.62 Reload:
-better interface and graphics
-interesting story line and good voice guidance (note: I played russian version few years ago)
-almost no free choises or free battles (linear story line with close to no side missions and fixed order of combats)
-most of battles are in large enough, but extremely secluded locations (like buildings and alleys) with seriously limeted resources and huge difference in numbers of participants (you squad is 1-3 men), making combat somewhat different from 7.62 series (you will have to use mines and traps a lot more, rely on one shot kills instead of supressing firepower, element of surprise e t c)
-mostly same real time tactical combat system with active pause.
-slight changes to detecting system and RPG elements

P.S. Game is old, if there are serious lags, try compatibility mode with XP.
