Über dieses Spiel

Kingpin ist eine Geschichte von Rache. Werden Sie der Führer einer Straßenbande und stiften Sie Ihre Rekruten dazu an, zu attackieren, zu verteidigen oder auch mal einen Tresor zu knacken, um das nötige Kleingeld zu besorgen.

Gründen Sie Ihre eigene Bande und rekrutieren Sie direkt von den Straßen. Wenn sich ein neues Bandenmitglied als Punk entpuppt, vernichten Sie ihn und machen Platz für neue. Steigen Sie auf in der Welt, aber haben Sie Acht vor dem Kingpin; letztendlich müssen Sie es mit ihm aufnehmen.
Irgendwo in der Vergangenheit, in der die Zukunft noch nicht begonnen hat, liegt die Welt von Kingpin. Verbrannte Gebäude und Ruinen bilden die Landschaft. Ansässige Banden streunen in den Straßen, beschützen ihre Gebiete und suchen nach neuen Möglichkeiten.

Fairly fun and solid if a little bit silly heavily modified Quake 2 engine late 90's early 2000's in between Half Lifes era instance of a brutal and quite dark - but human enemies only - instance of a classic iteration of the FPS genre. Doesn't deviate from norms too much but has the nice additions of weapons shops and NPC cooperation, this achieved early on in the development of suchlike in gaming. Gets quite tough, still haven't finished it, also it doesn't work on Windows 10. Really good flamethrower effects.

Good lord no. I'd been waiting more than fifteen years to finally get a chance to check this game out, and it is completely not worth it. Even forgiving the fact that the Quake 2 engine is showing its age, hard, the graphics in this game are terrible. It's virtually impossible to tell friend from foe apart, aprticularly from a difference, the game paints with all the colors of the sewer, and all the modly have this odd wobbling to them that's supposed to make them look good, I guess, but just makes the people and weapons look like they're made out of Jell-o. The story is non-existant, you start the game having been beaten down by unnamed thugs working for.... another guy without a name, for no reason that the game ever tells you. From then on it's just your basic revenge plot. Go find the guy who ordered your failed hit, and kill him. There's boss fights, but that only constitutes enemies that have even MORE hit points than the general thugs. Which already are bullet sponges on their own. On top of that, most of the enemies in this game have hitscan weapons that have perfect acuracy from across the map, no need to reload, and sometimes won't stagger. There's almost no point in exploring as most dead ends have nothing in them anyway. There's weapons, ammo, and medical rooms here and there, which becomes a fight from one of those stashes to the next. And that's when the stashes aren't right on top of each other for no good reason. The Steam version also ships without music. You have to be a really hard core fan of 90's shooters to even WANT to play this one - like I am - and even then be prepared for disappointment.

Kingpin - Life of Crime was a classic FPS game that pushed the gaming boundaries when it was released back in 1999 that used the Quake 2 engine. The game is mature, violent, and filled with tons of bad words! If you're a fan of FPS games then this is a must have, which has great gunplay, awesome atmosphere with fully voiced NPCs, superb AI (your gang members know how to jump, climb ladders, flank enemies, etc.) and a cool revenge story.

Kingpin - Life of Crime ist am 30.06.1999 zum ersten mal erschinen und bei uns einen Monat später, wegen dem hohen Gewaltgrad, indiziert worden. Ich hab das Game damals ausgeliehen bekommen, da ich selber keine Chance hatte es zu erwerben. Obwohl das Spiel sehr schwer ist, vor allem am Anfang, habe ichs damals schon durch bekommen. War von der Grafik und dem Sound sehr beeindruckt. Cypress Hill hatte auch drei Lieder dazu beigesteuert.

Heute geht das Siel als Retrogame durch. Die Grafik ist nach heutge Maßstäben mehr als veraltet. Der Sound geht noch so. Spiel ist komplett in englischer Sprache und lief bei mir unter Win7 absturzfrei. Die Waffenauswahl finde ich gut, da sogar ein Flammenwerfer mit an Bord ist. Manche Waffen kann man auch gegen Geld im Waffenshop upgraden. Mit einigen NPCs kann man auch interagieren, zb anheuern, als Schutz. Oder als Safeknacker, für einen Safe, den man selber nicht öffnen kann.

Als ich das Game zum ersten mal gezockt hatte, hatte ich leichte Wegfindungsprobleme. Ich wußte nicht was ich machen sollte, wo ich hin sollte. Ich war ja damals als Kind der englischen Sprache nicht so mächtig. Ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass Leute, die das Game zum ersten mal zocken, auch die selben Probleme haben könnten. Wenn man aber etwas überlegt, und ne gewisse Ausdauer mitbringt, müsste das Game zu schaffen sein. Gut finde ich auch, dass man sein Spiel jederzeit abspeichern kann.

Ich empfehle dieses Game allen Retrofans, die eine Herausforderung suchen, oder das Spiel schon kennen und lieben. Aber nur, wenn ihr das Game im Sale bekommt, denn momentan liegt der Normalpreis im Steamstore bei 10 Euro!

Wer Spaß an Retro-Games hat, sollte sich das Spiel unbedint kaufen.
Allerdings ist es durch die Skallierung des Bildes auf modernen Monitoren sehr anstrengend zu spielen.

Kingpin: Life of Crime is really interesting, what starts off as a tough as nails, slow paced, atmospheric first person experience which hates you quickly turns into an all out guns blazing fast paced action game that hates you even more. This is far tougher than the average 90's FPS game and will require luck, strategy and a skillfull approach to progress through it's big, open, levels.

The gameplay is varied, you can approach combat situations in different ways, going slowly and picking off enemies one by one or go in guns blazing like a typical FPS game from the 90's but don't expect to live for too long that way, the best approach is to use a mixture of the two.

The level design is somewhat reminscent of Quake 2's with non-linear layouts and multi-levelled structures that overlook area's of the map you're soon to visit or have already, mixed with some Half-Life's design choices. The levels are extremely well thought out and designed with not only looks but gameplay in mind and similar to that of Quake and Doom require you to look around for keys or items needed to progress and does not hold your hand and pull you through the map. The combat situations are often tough and leave you to overcome disadvantages which adds to the difficulty in a good way.

The AI is insane, the enemy will shoot you with almost instant, deadly accuracy as soon as you poke your nose around a corner which will frustrate a lot of people but I was able to overcome this by outsmarting the enemy in many ways such as luring them around corners and into your commandable gang members line of sight who will then mow the enemies down with the same ferocity the enemy AI shows towards to you which is really fun to watch. The AI is far from perfect, but in my opinion is WAY better and more interesting than what we see in modern shooters today, instead of artificially/dumbly taking cover behind barrels,walls and other forms of cover which makes them sitting ducks and actually easier to pick off, will run around, retreat then hide somewhere on the map, jump down from higher levels, climb ladders and attempt to out maneuver you which sometimes works to their success.

The visuals are amazing and take full advantange of the Quake 2 engine, with great lighting effects and detailed environments, there is literally nothing wrong with them but 50$ says this gets the bland, soulless HD remake along the line. The sound effects and voice acting are good, the weapons sound deadly and the AI has tons of classic lines, many including the 'f' word multiple times.

Overall this game really impressed me through-out, took around 8-9 hours of tough gameplay to complete, I wasn't able to finish this as a child due to it's crushing learning curve but if you stick around you'll experience a time when gaming was at it's peak but BE WARNED, a lot of patience is required!

Let us get one thing straight - this ain't Quake. Punishingly difficult to begin with, Kingpin is a deep, dark, and atmospheric shooter with RPG elements that stands the test of time. The voice acting is great, the script is full of unnecessary swears, and the game makes you fight for every kill you make.

Most underrated old school game. Best of its kind. This is one of the black sheeps of the 1990 known for its extreme violent content and abusive language

Kingpin is a very 90's game. It's a game very in-line with the "screw the censors let's have violence and swearing" mindset from around the same time that gave us games like Doom and Postal. Unfortunately this backfired for the game since it released around the same time as the Columbine shootings. Which gained it a great deal of controversy and seemingly didn't improve the sales of the game.

The premise of the game is you are a criminal who is beaten by several thugs in an alley. You pick up a lead pipe and decide to get revenge on the criminal organization that runs the city. The storyline is extremely minimalistic and there isn't much to get attatched to. The main protagonist isn't particularly well fleshed out and the motivations of the characters are never elaborated upon.

This gets into the brunt of my complaints with the game. The game feels like it lacks focus. The game starts out as a semi-stealth game before you get any good weapons or upgrades. Once you get access to a few decent weapons it turns into a straight up run and gun shooter. There's a mechanic where you can talk to NPCs in the world and even enemies if you put your weapon away. But it feels a little half baked since you typically trigger their aggro by accident and have to quickload. The writing of the characters was also pretty terrible. With enemies yelling "♥♥♥♥ER" frequently as soon as you're spotted.

However, I can see why Kingpin got a cult-like following after release. The game takes place in a 1930's styled dystopian city. All of the characters resemble 1940's mobster charicatures and you eventually gain access to a tommy gun. However, all of the dialogue is very 90s, and you see more modern inventions like monorails and helicopters. It has this strangely surreal vibe to it that reminds me of similar games like Manhunt although I don't know if it was intentional or not. It also has wonderfully good AI for the time that actually follows you through vents and up ladders. The game also does have this unique sense of progression. Where you start out the game waking up in the gutter and progressively become more powerful and influential. Lastly there are a lot of clear influences from films like the Big Lebowski and Pulp Fiction. With the antagonist of the game being a clear parody of Marcellus Wallace from the latter.

I wouldn't say Kingpin is a bad game but you have to go into it being aware it's a very mediocre one. I only recommend this game to people who are overly curious about old first person shooters who are willing to accept the game for it's very rough edges.

One of my Favorite games of all times. It brings back so many memories of being a teenager and playing the game your parents would go crazy if they saw you on it.
It is your typical action game, story is great and action is nonstop.
