Ce spun criticii

“...has a lot to offer in terms of gameplay, story, and sound...it brings original ideas and a good dose of personality to a genre that often focuses too much on just shooting people in the face.”

Despre acest joc

A common legend pervades the galaxy-that of a powerful, highly intelligent ancient race that will one day deliver the universe. They are known as Humans.
Some claim they are the messiah. Others believe they exist only in the imaginations of the young. The Seekers, however, know Humans exist and believe they are an enemy that must be destroyed. Under the guise of benevolent explorers, Seekers comb the universe and eradicate any Human colonies they find. Until now.
Working with award-winning science fiction author Orson Scott Card, GlyphX Games has created a gripping storyline that will thrust gamers into an incredible intergalactic saga.
The Advent of Humanity Begins...

Take part Mass Effect, part Halo, and throw in a dash of Star Wars and you get Advent Rising. This is the utmost praise, however, as Advent Rising is a fantastic game. It is clear that Mass Effect borrowed heavily from this game as the Geth seem to be ripped straight from it. The fiction behind the story is some of the most engrossing sci-fi I've seen in a while, which is no surprise since it was written by Orson Scott Card.

The gameplay is third-person, with the use of guns and special powers. The guns do feel really nice, but I found myself using the powers more often, especially in the later game. The level design is superb as well, and I never felt lost, even in some of the bigger environments.

The game is not without it's faults, however. Consulting PC Gaming Wiki is a must for essential fixes, but I still had a fair number of issues. There were graphic anomalies when things got intense and there were lots of explosions. cutscenes would sometimes hicup as well, although the dialogue did not skip. The most annoying thing were the game crashes which happened a handful of times. Thankfully, the game saved at the exact point of the crash so nothing was lost, but still annoying.

Iffy port aside, this game is fantastic. It really is a shame we will probably never see the planned sequels as this game builds a very promising lore and world around it. It's certainly worth playing, just know that it will probably never get a proper finale.

Good game. It has a great story. Moreover, I think they made the story first and wrapped the game afterwards. It's just linear gameplay but the story makes it up. This thing also has A LOT of cinematics. and I mean A LOT.

There's an unofficial patch that makes the Cinematics better and ADDS more cinematics that was remoeved when they ported it to PC. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you do the patch.

Mechanic--wise, It's your average TPS game. and similar to old TPS games. The BOSSES are a ♥♥♥♥♥ to deal with. I was stuck with ONE boss for 2 HOURS. It sometimes crashes but no big deal.

Rating this one a 7/10.

Advent Rising is a game that I randomly found. I saw many steam reviews saying that it was one of their favourite games of all time. And had a person in my steam friend list who also was super excited about it. So, I recently played the game to find out if it was all nostalgia or if it really is a masterpiece.

You start the game off by getting on to a spaceship and receiving your training. You visit an alien form that warns you of another alien group that is about to attack. When you return to the ship it is under attack and you have to escape. I have to say the first 2 hours of the game really felt boring to me. The gameplay felt like you were just going from room to room killing aliens. The only positive was that you have choices in the beginning. Which you, sadly and strangely, don't have as you continue further into the game.

After those initial 2 hours it finally starts to get interesting. Also your weapons are levelling up and you are unlocking new cool powers (It comes over weird in the story that you randomly unlock new powers though). The game has so many powers and weapons that I haven't been able to try them all out. This may be because you are limited to one weapon or power per hand. Also, I have to say that the end bosses were pretty challenging overall, I wasn't expecting that. The driving sections in the game can become really exciting, except if you have to shoot. In the end the game took me 10 hours to complete on normal difficulty.

The story is pretty well written and had me coming back to the game. I am sometimes amazed that they actually did what they did with the story. I reached a part of the game that made me wish to stop playing, but the story helped me push through it. There are times when the story felt cheesy and cheap (And sadly the not CGI cutscenes looked really poor). It is also obvious that the screenwriting took inspiration from movies popular at the time of the game's release. The game has many slow-motion animations while jumping or finishing an enemy to make it more cinematic. This is pretty cool but after a while it can be really irritating, because you are just waiting for the animation to end.

The sound design of the game sadly feels strangely rushed. There are too many instances to list: The game is missing walking and explosion sounds and there are a lot of other strange audio issues. Such as an NPC having the same voice as the protagonist when they get hit. The soundtrack on the other hand is really great and done by a real orchestra. The Graphics thanks to the style and can look really great, but sadly the textures mostly look bland.
( I had that the game crashed several times, and sadly it never putted me at the last checkpoint. )

I would recommend if you play this game:
To use the Advent Revising Mod
Turn off auto-aiming

Final thoughts:
I think it is sad that Advent Rising is a forgotten game. The game was much too rushed in production and had a boring beginning and ending. However, I still think that if you can accept the complaints there is a great experience to be had in the game.

I STRONGLY recommend this game and i tell you why:

1. It's old, but the effects, story and gameplay are so gorgeous.

2. The action and the intensity of this game is so awesome because he have so many battles with aliens, robots and bosses.

3. You have so many ways to kill the aliens, you have human weapons, alien weapons, grenades, melee and powers.

4. What it's so awesome at this game it's that you can level up your abillities like jumping, melee, powers and weapons and when you level up you make a SICK explosion which destroy everything around.

Overrated game if you read other review websites. You can play fine unlike many of the older games(used Windows 8).

The screenshots fools you into thinking this game has some space battles, including the intro start of the game. Don't be fooled, this is not a "Space sim game". This is a third person shooter game. The screenshots are hover vehicles in land/volcanoe battle. If you are looking for a Space sim game this is not your type of game.

There are no secret to unlock for this game so you don't really have to be bother to play highest difficulty or looking for secrets. There are much better games than this during 2003 since its release. The only good thing about this game is the fighting system and skill perks which made this game unique for its time. It might disappoint some people as this is just a generic third person shooter with a good story and gameplay.

Should I recommend this to people? Maybe. I've been waiting to play this game so long since 2005, and after beating this game. It isn't a bad game, but, the gameplay didn't age that well. It kind of disappointed me. I was too hoping for a mix of space sim due to the screenshots.

Beware buyers: There are two endings for this game depending who you save at the very first mission. The real last mission happens after the credits scene. So do not expect that you have finished the last mission after the credit scene starts.

Some may like this game, some may not. If there was a neutral option I would have picked that.
