About This Game

Through the eyes of Grobuskna Vladinov, you'll be taken through a ride that has stained itself to Grobuskna's memory.
Losing his parents during the holocaust left Grobuskna with many questions, he couldn't accept to let the villain be forgotten.
Having a father that worked close with the resistance during world war two was a big risk in itself.
But as Grobuskna once said, to let good die and bad live is something no man can accept.

Grobuskna is a detective, as a side thing he's been trying to keep track of remaining Nazi officers spread around the world.
Despite the fact that he knows who took his parents, he still doesn't know where he's hiding.
Until an unknown call reaches Grobuskna's office, an unknown call but an expected call that'll change everything...

The story is great, and the scares are good, keeping you on your toes. Only thing that makes me sad is the somewhat hard puzzles.

The game has you become resourceful, creative, and wanting more. It's a must have!

While I'd like to give the game a positive review, something tells me to just simply put it in a nutshell: PewDiePie referances -- guys, if you're going to make easter eggs, make them be based around something other than some Swedish ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥-Youtuber. Secondly, this game has massive potential, but the voice acting ruins the atmosphere just a bit too much and the jumpscares are far too typical.

First thing right off of the bat:
- Who the hell was at the door at the beginning of the game? Just a, *knock knock*, "I wonder who that is?" and then that's it?
- The protagonist holds the reward for claiming and owning the World's Most Impatient Phone. The damn phone rang like 50 times before I could gather my gun, keys, and journal.
- The voice acting wasn't all that decent which, in my opinion, completely ruins the atmosphere. But it's not horrible.

This complaint is rather small: - When your friend, spoiler, dies, it says in the subtitles: "{Enter Name Here}! No! What the hell?!" But the protagonist says, "{Enter Name Here}!, NO! WHAT THE ♥♥♥♥ WAS THAT?!" or something like that.

Also, the character moves way too damn slow; espeically when your stamina runs out.


So, all in all, it's not the worst Half-Life 2 Horror Mod I've played, like I said, it has massive potential and I there are some parts in the game of which I did enjoy. But if you guys want some inspiration on how a jumpscare should be planned out or how voice acting should be done, I recommened taking a look at the infamous Half-Life Mod: Cry of Fear -- I'm sure if you contact the head of Team Psykallar via e-mail or whatever, he'll be more than happy to give some tips. One last thing, the animations are a bit.. robotic and unrealistic -- which, of course, ruins the atmosphere.

I don't hate the game and I'd love to give it a positive review, but I don't think I should considering the above text.

This was a pretty bad experience.
I remember that I quit after my first death when it first was released on Steam.
The last few days, I replayed it.
And what do I have to say?

The surroundings, the textures and models were stunning, great work there. The weapon models looked fantastic and it all really fit to the post WWII-theme.

However, the gameplay and gameflow were both horrible.
The pistol does itty-bitty damage, you need two full clips to finish off the first few monsters (which are pretty weak compared to those later in the game).
Most of the weapons, which have a scope are almost useless when using the ironsight function. I expected the scope to cover almost all of my screen (similar to games like TF2, Half Life 2 and CS:GO).
Instead i got this tiny pin prick of a scope in the middle of the screen, which sadly enlarged the things viewed through it so much that I rather had to guess where I was aiming instead of actually aiming. It was like looking through a tiny magnifying glass.
The weapon switch speed was horrible. I get that it is more realistic when he first packs his pistol away and then slowly pulls his sniper rifle from elsewhere, maybe his bag or his back. But when have games ever been realistic? Never.
Compared to the awesome weapon system in Half Life 1/2, this just lacked the power.
Why power? Well, most of the weapons did laughable damage. I needed an entire clip with the MP40 to finish one of the later monsters. Four sniper shots for one of the grey walker things. The only efficient weapon was the rocket launcher, which you could only get when you had found an item in the middle of the game (bit unfair eh?).
Also, we have the usual Cry of Fear-type punishment when you reload, you loose the entire clip. That's one of the only features I liked about the weapon system. Oh and the iron sights of the unscoped weapons were pretty good.

We spoke of enemies earlier, I'd like to come back to that.
Most of the wicked zombies, infected and mentally insane you encounter in the mod are way too strong. This is mostly because of their movement speed, They run so fast that you cannot walk backwards and shoot at them. Also their attack speed is like they ate 6 Moon shards (obvious Dota 2 reference). Most of them will kill you in roughly four hits. I guess there's a headshot mechanic, but how in the absolute ♥♥♥♥ are you supposed to use that if you run from a 300 Mp/h Lamborghini zombie, whose head sways drastically because of the way he moves?
I actually think the boss battles are not that hard compared to what some of the enemies do. It was always a fair 1 vs. 1 fight, so that you actually had time to dodge and aim.
But especially towards the end of "The Forgotten Ones" the battles are relentless, with as much as 15 enemies piling onto you (or one of your unfortunate mates you have to rescue).

The absolute worst part of the mod was the health system. You could only carry one health kit at the time, that could heal you, but that doesn't help you anything when you are being overrun by hordes of OP mutants. If you get hit ONCE, YOU START TO HOBBLE AROUND LIKE SOME ♥♥♥♥ING ♥♥♥♥♥ WHO CANT EVEN TAKE A SINGLE HIT! Yeah, your movement is minimzed to maybe 40% of your NORMAL walking speed (which is already pretty slow).
Also, you bleed out when you are under 1/3 of your health. Just won a fight? Well, fear no more, you'll ♥♥♥♥ing die as a reward! Yaaaay!!!! ♥♥♥♥ing hell.

The puzzles are next level cryptic lard-♥♥♥. Who is supposed to know that there will be a bunker under a random grate in a washing room? Who can guess that you have to cut open some random pipe covering just to get a pipe? All that is because these things are only "revealed" to you when you press the "Use-key" at a very specific area, nowhere else. It isn't hinted in the notes properly, the character never mentions anything and you'll end up searching around through the mansion with the most horrible stamina a video game character could have and one of the most terrible map loading methods I have ever seen (it is like in Cry of Fear, where you can't open doors physically but click your "Use"-button at them to be ported behind it, whilst the screen fades out and in again). The maps are tiny, a 10secs map loading screen is behind every second door.

No quicksave function. The addition of this feature would make many of the problems nonexistent.

To conclude: Don't play it. Download Grey or Afraid of Monsters if you want a proper horror mod. If you want a challenge and some pretty sweet looking WWII graphics you can try it.
But I wouldn't recommend it to the normal consumer who might stumble onto this in the horror section of the steam store.

*10/14/14 edit* So I tried playing it again since there was an update just a couple weeks after the game released. I will leave my original under this slight update.

The game has definitely had some improvements, like the monsters aren't immediately in your face and guns do a bit more damage. You can actually take them down in a single clip. However, it's still not much better. I actually had more issues this time around.

My character would be in a state of 'falling' while on the ground, so I couldn't pick up ammo or items I came across, until after 30 seconds of jumping and crouching like crazy he decided to actually plant his feet on the ground. This also meant I could not shoot or reload. It happened in most rooms I went into. Bad luck, I guess.

Another issue I ran into was game breaking, although it wasn't really a bug so much as a bad design choice. I was being gang banged by 3 of them in a hallway, they got me down to low health so I used a health kit, and succeeded in killing them. Then I saved. Big mistake, because apparently if your health is at 3 or 4 ticks, you start to bleed out. So that means when I saved, I ♥♥♥♥ed myself because I only live for about 8 seconds after loading it, then I bleed out and die, with no health kits around.

Everything else is the same. Although they did remove a note at the very start that had pewdiepie on it, and made it into something with a few tips for new players. A nice gesture.

-------------
*Original July 17th review

Warning: This game is literally made for all the "Pewdiepie" people out there. AHH JUMP SCARE SO SCARY I CAN'T PLAY THIS.

This game is ♥♥♥♥. No big surprise there, right? It's not awful because it's a mod built on Source, or anything like that. The game works, and controls just fine. The audio and graphics are typical of source games, so again, it's fine. Now lemme get into why I think it's awful.

The beginning doesn't really give you any direction, or any sort of story. You're thrown into your office, and just left there. You can do a 'quest' where you get this dude his lunch, but it doesn't do anything. You pick it up, plop it in front of him, and he just stares at it. Cool. Awesome. Whatever.

The voice acting is, as expected, absolute trash. Some people pronounce the protagonists name as "Grobunska", while others say "Grobuskna". I really didn't expect anything amazing from the voice acting.

After you leave the police station, and get to the game game, you realize quickly the 'horror' is based around jump scares. There's also spooooooky sound effects that are taken directly from the source engine, and it's really easy to tell they are just background noise. Stuff that just loops to give the illusion of horror.

After that are the enemies. Combat in a horror game is really hard to do correctly. You can't be too overpowered, or else it's just an action game, and if you're too weak, there's no point to having combat, unless it is to slow the enemy down. This game kinda falls into the latter, except it wants to force you to fight. At a distance with a gun, yeah, I guess it's not too bad. It takes a ♥♥♥♥ ton of bullets to take down an enemy which makes sense, maybe like 10 pistol rounds. Ammo is pretty abundant though. The real issue though, comes from close quarters, as is usually the case. But in this case, it's awful. Dare I say....broken? An enemy hits you, and makes your camera jerk around, so it's impossible to shoot it. Okay, but what about the melee weapon? Same thing, impossible to hit with them while being hit, and the melee weapons do ♥♥♥♥ damage. Plus, for a short after you are hit, you can't sprint, and move slower than a snail. So, there's no way to kill it, and no way to escape from it, unless you get really lucky with a few shots, or the enemy happens to get stuck on stuff. 90% of the time, you are stuck in a small room with the enemy, so the distance is closed within a second, then begins the head jerking till death. Honestly, ammo should have been very, very scarce, but does more damage.

But hey, it's a free game, so it's fine right? Not really. Free doesn't mean it gets a free pass on being ♥♥♥♥♥♥. It just means you didn't waste any money buying it, just wasted your time. So, it's a typical 20XX horror game. Jump scares all the time, without any actual horror. It's a waste of 3.9 GB's.

*EDIT* If the game gets patched, I will be more than willing to revise this review. This is meant purely as constructive criticism, not an insult to the game developer(s), despite how it may seem, starting off by calling it '♥♥♥♥'. The world desperately needs good horror games, and support after release is always welcome.

Seemed interesting, walked for a few seconds, picked up a manifest, and saw PewDiePie's face.
Guys, don't play this. This is pure PewDieBait. Saying this directly to the developers face, don't pull this crap on your horror games. It gives it a bad rep.

EDIT: There's also Stephano collectibles.

Honestly, I saw someone write a 'review' and they didn't explain anything, just said it was awful, but 'good for a free game.' Hearing this simply made me curious. Why did he say that everything was awful but good for a free game? So, I decided to play and actually take notes. Well, I played about an hour of it, and then I quit. Here's a list of the problems I found with the game.
1): Missing textures. If I'm downloading your game, please provide all the textures. It really removes from the atmosphere when I have missing texture here and there.
2): Controls. They're not bad, but I was stuck in the beginning because ‘F’ was the Use key, instead of the traditional ‘E’ key. I know that’s not really a problem, but an explanation would have been nice. Sure, it did tell you, after you left the room, which requires you to figure it out first. Little late, thanks. While we’re on controls, the car was absolutely terrible. I flipped the car on accident, and the brake is so horribly done. Could use for some fixing. Plus, there’s no need to go /that/ fast in this game.
3): Achievements: I got the Slenderman Achievement, and I don’t even know how. This could just be me, but I looked at a gramophone and hit F, and got it. Did I miss Slenderman, or what?
4): Stephano was in it. Clearly this is directed at PewDiePie, but I saw a ‘collected 1/3’ pop up, and even though I’m not a fan, I’m also not against him in any way, but I don’t want to have PewDiePie literally shoved into my face when I’m playing a game. Maybe have it in game, but don’t make it a side mission or anything.
5): Invisible boarders. You had a perfectly fine set up with the entire area surrounded in a log fence, but people can get over those and walk into an invisible wall, which is terrible. Simple put the invisible wall where the log fences are, and then I wouldn’t have gotten my car stuck on the fence.
6): Animations could use some work. Swimming animation looks really awkward, there’s no animation when you’re driving outside of the tires moving. I.E. Character doesn’t turn the steering wheel, or react at all.
7): There were several areas where lights were being emitted with no source.
8): More than half of the notes didn’t have voice acting while some did. This is just odd, either do voice acting for all of them, or none.
9): Monsters did not feel threatening at all. They shook around when they ran towards you or stood still like they were from Cry of Fear or something. This was far more annoying than threatening or scary. Speaking of monsters, confronting them was ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t. If two of them got close enough to you, you’re more than likely dead. This doesn’t make them threatening, this makes them annoying.
10): There were grammar issues, but I don’t really care that much.
11): The Bolt cutters worked weird. Cut the chain, and the basement doors broke… What?
12): When loading for the next stage there’s a chance of running into a bug. You’re ported to the other side of the door, and once in a while the game just sticks you there, and forgets to load, leaving you stuck.
13): So many unnecessary transitions between rooms. The maps not loading anything new, it’s just porting me to the other side of the door. Opening the door would have been easier.
14): Unrealistic use for TNT. You DO NOT use TNT just to open a freaking door made of four to five planks of ♥♥♥♥ wood! I had a sledge hammer that could have easily broken the door, and yet I wasted TNT to blow it up. Why?! I could have saved that and used it for something more constructive, creative, or useful! Absolutely terrible, not to mention, I wrote nearly half of that before the TNT exploded. It took forever to go off.
15): There were way too many loading screens. I felt like I was waiting more than I was playing.
16): Why was there multiple choice answers/questions? From what I saw nothing was changing up, and it kept going back until I clicked all of them. A cut scene, sure that works, but having me click the questions/answers until all were done was pointless and time wasting.
I’m sure there’s a lot more, but honestly, there was just so much terrible crap going on that I just couldn’t keep playing, wasn’t worth the hardware space. Not worth it, not even if it’s free.

Pros:
Ability to drive,
Wonderful maps,
More items to grab and use as weapons,
Soundtrack is great,
and of course, it's free.

Cons:
Lack of Gamepad support.
Unrealistic Running Speed and slowdown.
The voice acting could do a little more polishing.

Major Con:
Whoawhoawhoa, what the ♥♥♥♥ is this? Pewdiepie references? PEWDIEPIE?! Ok, this somewhat pisses me off. If you want Pewdiepie's attention, it can be attracted without having all these stephanos and crap laying all around.
With that happening, you can also attract other gamers as well who would support this game, but the Pewdiepie references are just too far.

May as well slap "Pewdiepie: The game" over the title.

The first Note you find in this game is a picture of PewDiePie. I bet this gives you an Idea on what kind of game this is... YouTube Fodder.

The game, is broken in allot of ways, Audio Settings don't work, Changing the graphics will crash the game, the enemies are more annoying then scary, You have no clear Idea on what you need to do, the list goes on.

The only 2 things I can say about this game, is the game does look good for a Source Mod and it's Free, So I didn't waiste any money on this game, I just waisted my time.
