If "Bad Rats" were to become a free to play game, global suicide rates would increase by 19%

Bad Rats is a revolutionary first person shooter that sets a new standard for this era of gaming. This is game published by Electronic Arts is a developed by Dice on the new Frostbite 4 engine to provide a superior graphic fidelity compared to other marvellous titles including Crisis 3. The story of the game takes place in the year 2035 when North Korea officially ends the cease fire for the Korean War and launches a series of surprise attacks on the United States of America and South Korea. North Korea launches an overwhelming amount of long range ballistic missiles towards major metropolitan areas in the United States which devastates the population and cripples the infrastructure of the government to be able to function properly to contain control of the United States. North Korea launches a full scale aerial campaign on Seoul with a relentless wave of troops pouring across the DMZ of North Korea and South Korea. China and the rebuilt Soviet Union organized by Vladimir Putin has been supplying North Korea with highly advanced military technology and expertise has secretly been supporting North Korea for a war since 2006! You play as a squad in the Navy Seals for the United States called “Bad Rats” Your objective is to assassinate all cats in the region of Asia to cut off all food supplies from the North Koreans and collapse the regime of Kim Jong Un. Using the destructible environments from the Frostbite 4 engine you must use the environment for a tactical advantage to exterminate all cats from Asia. Fan favourite maps return including Seige of Shainghai where you must collapse a skyscraper to kill all cats in the building. Facial scanning technology from LA Noire returns to add an extra layer of realism with realistic facial animation movements to add more emotion to the already immersive world. This is a highly addicting shooter that takes place in locations across the world from nuclear wasteland America to the glorious lands of North Korea. You have a massive arsenal of over 500 weapons to use with thousands of gadgets and gun camouflages. Bad Rats is integrated with the Steam Workshop which has created thousands of community maps and gun skins to be submitted into the game for future free DLCs called “Operations”. Each operation adds an extra layer of immersion into the game with a huge variety of community maps and skins to be added to expand the already masterpiece of a game. Bad rats is a very skill based shooter and requires extensive training to truly shine in multiplier. Bad Rats is the only first person shooter on the market to add a innovative competitive mode with ranks to determine your skill level. In multiplayer there are 2 teams. Counter Cats and Cats. The counter cats must plant a bomb on one of the two locations on the map to kill the population of cats in the area. The cats must prevent the counter cats or the “bad rats” from planting the bomb by either killing all the Counter Cats or defusing the bomb to save the population of cats in the premise.Bad Rats is a highly addicting shooter that any seasonal gamer should try out but I assume you already have! Bad Rats global sales have exceeded 1 billion on the first day outselling the Call of Duty franchise. It is very rare to see game a game this flawless since the release of Half Life 2. If you like first person shooter games you already own bad rats, if you don't you are missing out on one of the most brilliant game of this century.

Final verdict

Immersive environments
Balanced multiplayer
Overwhelming amount of content
Gorgeous Graphics
Revolutionizes the FPS genre
Fantastic and inspiring story
Great voice acting
Like Half Life 3 but better

Cons
Too much graphics

10/10

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from Bad Rats.

To start this review, I actually love this game! I just don't think its worth $1.09cdn. Only bother adding this game to your library unless its a gift or its a 90% sale. Once this occours you can easily make profit from playing the best game imaginable.

BAD Rats is the first ever true multi-genre game on the steam market, being a survival horror, third person shooter, historical, space simulation, RTS, MOBA, Christian Educational Game.

The games plot revolves around trying to teach the consumer about the misconceptions of ebola. Before i played this game i was under the impression that ebola wasn't in my country but i now know that it in fact has infected the global population through airborne transfer. It also teaches you that you can cure ebola by bathing in honey and then applying peanut butter. Fantastic

Pros-
-Amazing Graphics
-Revolutionairy Mechanics
-Outstanding PVP gamemodes
-Servers have 100% uptime. This game has the best co-op imaginable

Cons-
-Some levels where co-designed by the anti-christ and are impossible to beat without a walkthrough
-Completely unoriginal concept clearly stolen from the groundbreaking game DOTA 2
-Character progression has too many items and is therefore impossible to understand
-Some graphics stolen from well known games such as pong and realm of the mad god
-The "bad rats puzzle gun" is actually just a rat that uses the portal gun from the famous game portal 2 and the mechanic is glitchy
-The tutorial is absolute crap (actually tho) it doesn't teach you 99% of the game mechanics.
-In the credits they leave out the obvious inspiration from star wars episode 3, a new home.

So, i was going to give this game a healthy 9/11 but then i realized the absolute misfourtune of this game. After you have played this game you will lose the ability to play any game besides bad rats. Due to this unfortunate compulsion I will have to rate this game 0/10 while i go ddos the multiplayer servers to save the poor souls suffering from christian educational game addiction.

I hope this review was helpful and please click the yes if you liked it :)

Could not get it working until I tweaked some advanced windows settings, and then the resolution the game could play at did not work well with my monitor or my capture device .... because apparently 720p and 1080p were a little out of reach for this game! Eventually I managed to magically get the game to show on my monitor and had the option to change to one of three resolutions ... all of which were 4:3 aspect ratio and all of them very low. Not a good start!

Once the game started, it was not quite as horrible as I had been lead to believe. The core concept was sound. You have a variety of objects and rats with special abilities. You use these objects and rats to guide a ball around several obstacles to hit something that will britally murder the captive cat in a humourous but not safe for children manner. And in general the game works .... I mean OK the physics are a little unpredictable and you may have to run the same solution a few times before it succeeds, but the basic game works and is suprisingly entertaining.

But it just feels like they got a prototype game made and released it with no polish, plenty of bugs, and made for computers not sold this century. This is a case of a good idea that just missed the mark in every other way outside of that great idea.

Oddly enough I hope the developers don't give up and keep trying because something about this game just made me wish it had not been crap.

To label Bad Rats as a game would be a lie, it is not a game. It is far more than that, its a piece of art, a masterpiece, words cannot quite describe what Bad Rats is.

Bad Rats has proven that only by challenging the norms it is possible to deliver something which can live on through time to become a memorable experience for all who were fortunate enough to stumble upon it. Invent4 has paved the way for other independent developers to take charge, think outside the box and deliver something fresh.

They say every game has its faults, they have yet to experience Bad Rats.

Features:
  • Rich open world design featuring not only rats but also cats. Explore a dynamic and vibrant world, admire the depth of the AI which provides a level of realism which in many regards exceeds that of real life.

  • PC exclusive Grand Theft Rat mode which allows you to step into the shoes of a middle aged rat who's has just retired from the army. Complete missions to rank up through the ranks and become the biggest, smelliest, cheesiest rat lord in the region.

  • Unlimited progression pathways which affect gameplay*

  • Next generation graphics, push your PC to the limits with the graphics. This is NOT a Xbox 21809 or PS6 port, this was designed with PC gamers in mind.

  • Finished the game? Purchase the season pass now to unlock the full map as it was intended to be played. Explore areas which were taken out of the core game to allow for a more focused first time experience.
If you get only one game this year make sure its Bad Rats!

* Bad Rats utilises the micro transaction model to ensure a fair and inexpensive experience. Purchase them all to become the best in the region or only pay for the upgrades you truly want, its up to you. Each upgrade also adds a "+1" to the tag which appears above your character in online mode.
