Please Note the following: I don’t recommend or discourage playing this game, my opinion falls right in-between the lines on this game, ergo, I could thumbs it up, or thumbs it down. I am thumbing it down because the majority of my friends reading this review probably wouldn’t want to waste time with it.-Quick Review-
Space Hack is a very old looking Diablo throw back, “Sci-fi, RPG/Action” game. This game simply has the feeling of an “old game”, mostly because of its inspiration from Diablo. This game was released in 2005, so do keep in mind that, that reflects on the controls and the graphics. -Detailed breakdown review-Story:
Basically you are humanity’s old hope for survival, you start the game standing inside an enclave called a “biosphere”, it’s your job to help these other humans to be able to survive this strange new world. Naturally, in a sci-fi game the enemies you encounter are various form of Alien.Game Play:
You can equip different weapons, and armor, as well as use various other types of items that are pictured up as loot from aliens you kill (or objects you find). This game also utilizes a questing system to help give you tasks and keep you active.
Something should be mentioned about the controls of this game. I have never adjusted the camera angle in a 3D game with my scroll wheel before, additionally there are several other key bindings that confused me, if you intend to try this game out, I highly suggest checking out the bindings BEFORE you jump into the game; Or else you’ll find yourself out of laser charges and franticly trying to find your inventory to equip a baseball bat to murder with. Achievements:
There are no steam achievements for Space Hack.Price:
Space Hack is $0.99, what else is there to say? Usually I say wait for a sale, but this game is already purchasable by shaking down a little kid for his lunch money. No further comments. Conclusion:
This type of game will appeal to a very select “flavor” of gamer, again, the game was released in 2005, the graphics reflect that, I haven’t been able to figure out if the majority of the people who played the original Diablo like or dislike this game, it seems pretty much split even.
To be honest, most people on steam have tons of games in their steam library, most people will probably enjoy playing other games then this one, but if you’re feeling retro, and liked Diablo (or the dungeon crawler genre in general) this might be worth picking up.
