About This Game

ON A GOOD DAY, ONLY 2.5 MILLION PEOPLE WILL DIE.

As vast alien mining cities suck the power and minerals from every major metropolis on Earth simultaneously, time is of the essence as millions of civilians are expiring by the second.

Using your stealth parachute and the now infamous 'Zooming' head-mounted sniper-weapon, your task is to slip in undetected from the sky, seek out and remove the alien leader by any means.

MDK gives you awesome super smooth 3D gameplay.

Plus, with the most advanced weapons ever created in a video game, you can 'take' out an alien's eye from five miles away or just neatly carve your name in his forehead!

Great game just like I remember it except one HUGE problem... They completely cut out the ending! After you defeat the final boss the game just abruptly ends, no awesome song and cutsceen. Also the screenshots they showcase on the steam game page are all from the beta version of MDK and none of those are actual screenshots from the current game. I'm happy to see the game on steam but steam has a lot of cleaning up to do with this game.

Bit annoying that the Y mouse axis moves the character (I guess I can change that).

Other than that - ♥♥♥♥ YES.

THANK YOU. I've waited some 10 years to play this game again.

One of the few single player 3rd person shooters that I have bothered to finish. It's dated, but it's still fun.

One of the first third person shooters, and still one of the best.
If you didn't play this when it came out you need to get it now.

MDK is a must own! MUST OOOOWWWNNN !!! The first time I saw this game was on a PC in a Tandy Electronics store in early 1997. lol, boy I tell you, I played it as much as I could. Which was only 15 mins. But when I had to leave, I knew I had to get away from games like Doom, Quake, Heretic, Descent, Blakestone 3D, Wolfenstein 3D, Duke Nukem 3D ... etc. These 3D platform shooters were the next big thing!

The graphics amazed me back then. Now that I play it, I gotta admit it isn't as great as I had remembered, but the gameplay is incredibly fun that you'll pay no attention to the graphics. There’s this really cool slanting to the camera angle when you run left or right. I also find the parachute mechanism as integral and addictive to the gameplay as bullet time is in the Max Payne series.

MDK is about 6 hours long. For the amount of content to make things interestingly non-repetitive, I'd say this was well laid out by the developers. Some people might think the game is short. And maybe it is by today's standards. But if I remember back to those days as a kid, if a game was fun, you'd replay it again. It was that simple. And I would gladly load MDK up every now and then just to blast around and have fun today. That's the way it should be!

I can't even understand some of the pure genius of ideas in this game. Like I remember shooting this alien or whatever in the head and his eye popped! I shoot him in the nose and that got mashed. I mean like I shoot Ellis or Coach in the eyes in L4D2 and they don't pop ... you know what I mean? lol. Incredible detail and very imaginative game. Too much to explain. You have to play it to see it.

The control scheme is a bit wonky. You have to remember this was at a time where using the mouse to look around on PC wasn't that common. But I personally don't find it a bother. There are some people that have created modern mouse configurations for this game. But I recommend to use the keyboard old-school with the mouse only for sniping. Having said that, this game would be very user-friendly with a controller.

The music is pure awesomeness! It gives such great atmosphere. The sound effects like the gun shooting doesn’t get tiring.

What I don't understand is why the Steam version of this game lacks the ending escape sequence movie clip followed by this French music video. You'll need to obtain MDKEND.FLC and MDKBZK.MVE and place them in the MDK/MISC/FLIC directory to view the ending like normal. Thank god for the Internet and Google search, this problem is easily remedied.

The Steam overlay also doesn't work. So you'll need a program like Zeckensack's Glide Wrapper or nGlide. Apparently these programs also fixes wrongly displayed textures and "windowboxing" which the game defaults to.

Overall despite nearing 2 decades old, MDK makes it into my top favourite games of all time. It is so refreshing that it makes me wonder why a lot of triple A titles of today that use laser technology to scan actors into the computer as 3D models, combined with motion capture, life like level designs and Hollywood-like plots fail to draw me in! I would give MDK a personal score of 93/100.

My love for whole life. I finished this game abou 200x and I will do it again everytime I need some good nostalgic relax. MDK was best game of year 1997 and still is one of the best action games in the world.

A true underrated classic! A little dated at this point, but it really just needs some minor control tweaking. Trapped in 480p but otherwise, its fun as hell.

Well done Kurt!

MDK is a fast third person shooter that puts you inside Kurt's remarkable coil suit to fight against aliens that are trying to conquer Earth. For that, you're equipped with an infinite-ammo chain gun and a sniper rifle, combined with a lot of items (nuclear bombs, did I mentioned that?!) that can be obtained along the game (I mean NUCLEAR BOMBS!).

The campaign is linear, with six worlds to complete. It's a classic, tremendously funny. I still can enjoy it like I did in 1999.
If you're not familiar with classic games, give it a try on a sale. Otherwise you probably already have it on your library. ;-)

NOTE: The Steam version comes up with some bugs on newer systems (such as slowdowns and missing textures). There's a patch available that fix them all.

An old classic (maybe a bit underrated) third person shooter. Thought its not very known, its a very cool game, with a good ammount of action, funny moments (The world's smallest nuclear bomb used to open doors through the game its a little gem) and big open locations. Unfortunately, the Steam version suffer of some bug and glitches, (quickly fixable thanks to the Fan Mod released that you can find it here, http://steamcommunity.com/app/38450/discussions/0/864973123467667345/ ) and a very bad controly system that even an almost total remap wont fix totally.
SUMMARIZE. For the price on steam, its a worthy game to buy, that will give you a good ammount of playtime. Just remember that it will maybe require some fixes before it can be played properly.

This game was a hit back in the day. Awesome soundtrack, unforgetable gameplay, simple story and great graphics for 1997. If you get this game with MDK 2, it will be a hat trick, since both are awesome.

A real gem from Interplay's backcatalogue resurrected on Steam. The double bundle of MDK 1 & 2 is definitely worth picking up if you enjoy a unique platformer with crazy powerups, difficult environmental puzzles, ridiculous humor, and uh, sniping.

YO peeps pick this up, this I command. There's a part where your ice skating then an outhouse blows up then there's a guy spinning around on a sofa reading the paper.

Gamalt roligt spel :-D
Lätt att man köper detta spel! Gamla spel verkar vara dom bästa, detta är ett typsikt sånt där gamalt spel som man bara måste ha. Det är värt varenda krona på steam.
Tycker detta är hundra gånger bättre än MDk 2 och MDk 2HD.

-Bra spel musik.
-Najs handling och så vidare..
