game from 2003 feels like dumbed down half life 1 meets duke nukem.
story is fun, very basic but it gets the job done, cutscenes have dredd look like grumpy cat. very basic exploration leads to more ammo and health items. you can get 'lost' and wonder around for a bit because you havent fully completed an objective (aka 1 gangmember to arrest somewhere) a map or objective checklist would have been nice to have.
melee feels way to slow to be effective whilst all the enemies are in your face, this game is often as dark as doom 3 was, only you dont get a flashlight in this game. shotgun is only useful at close range but anything 'smarter' than a zombie is going to be a pain to get near and shoot fast enough with 1 shot every 4 seconds or so...
if you walk into a new area enemies spawn left and right, see a corner you cant direcly see into? enemy...
pathfinding AI is downright terrible, both civis you have to save often get stuck on nothing or doorways only to get flagged with a waypoint. shooting them sorts that at cost of your 'judge rating' boo hoo. enemies both gangmembers and zombies can run around to the benny hill theme, cant look up if youre just 1 floor up and make for easy picking
the waypoints you get can be a PAIN to deal with, see that last enemy vampire thats jumping around you trying to claw you to death? yes lets give him a waypoint starting at his hips covering everything up. forget getting a headshot once the last enemy is 'waypointed' spray and pray
because its an old game it supports resolution up to 1600x1200
i got 3-4 hours of gameplay out of the single player and it has an online feature that i didnt checkout
giving credit where its due, the game does have a ton of funny jokes and wise cracks
you get to run around and shoot stuff and in that the game does it decently... bought it on sale and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun simple fps dipped in dredd sauce
it was a budget game when it came out and it aged as such
