About This Game

Mars, 2044. The UN establishes MARSCORP (Martian Security and Economics Committee) under the leadership of Samuel Longwood. In the years that follow, the UN gradually loses control of MARSCORP, mainly due to the non-transparent licence policy of its director. Longwood uses his autonomous status to create vassal relations between the corporations and MARSCORP. The unshakable power position of MARSCORP is supported by the companies and thus they acquire additional rights and licenses. Longwood and his consortium become extremely wealthy from this arrangement. However, dissenting voices in MARSCORP begin to challenge Samuel Longwood's authoritarian policy. They demand his dismissal as director and a complete redistribution of the mining rights.

But Samuel Longwood keeps an ace up his sleeve for occasions like this…

Chaser awakens on board the spaceship H.M.S. Majestic. He doesn't know who he is, what he's doing here, why he is being sought by men in black uniforms and what they will do to him when they find him…

The player's goal is to find out who Chaser really is and why he is being hunted. The story leads the player from the H.M.S. Majestic to Montack City on Earth, then on to Siberia and finally to Mars, where the trail ends and hopefully the truth can be found.

Extremely long, old style fps with some efforts at early stealth mechanics and vehicles. Good fun but can be a bit repetative. If the developers had shortened the game by 25% and put the extra effort in polishing the other 75%, this may have been remembered as a classic. 6.5/10

Hello everyone.
Before i start i would like to say that i have 50+ hours at least in this game off steam . So i have played enough.

To start with cons i have to first talk about glass physics,yes you heard it right since no one else seems to give a single F*** about this majestic system who has spent many days to make .This game has great atmosphere and visually still looks good even tho it came out in 2003 ,yes 2003 ,seriously it CAME OUT IN 2003 so no need to give it crap because of graphics . I saw some comments about visuals thats why i'm stressing that out . The atmosphere sucks you in and they nailed it because every new location you feel the change.I have to stress this out :The atmosphere is very very good .If you love that as much as i do you will like this game .The ambient sounds , music ,lighting and overall level design is great . This game has a lot of guns to offer and they all different and serve their purpouse . Gunplay is dated BUT it is good and you expect that from a old school shooter . Solid ,chrispy and precise . This game also has a storyline believe it or not . A good one for that matter . I strongly recommend this game to all old school shooter lovers like myself .Also this game is very well optimised and runs gloriously on new systems and supports fullscreen and it has very good chrispy fresh mouse input . No acceleration or any of that variable horizontal mouse sens BULLC***

Now we come to bad stuff . There is no such thing as a perfect game . They all have many flaws . And i think that actually adds to a game a lot . Let me elaborate. You see, this game was made by a small studio and a staff fueled by pure ethusiasm back in the days when all you needed was a good shooter to be happy in your life . So this game is missing some polish and you can clearly see that in some levels more towards the end and you start imagining this level design guy working hard on this level and you see his vision of the level and see what he was going for . That is the most rewarding thing in a game for me .Some later leves do lack some detail but i think i can look over that because i'm sure they just didnt had enough time to polish everything . The other problem is AI .Its there its functional so you might ask what is the problem and the answer is its kinda dull . Yes you can say that about the 90% of games out there but that doesnt mean you dont want the games to have great AI everytime . But writing AI is very tricky so this game i would say is ok . i cant think of any other drawbacks to be honest . I wanted to write this review for a long time ever since i saw Funhaus guys play it . Dont get me wrong i love funhaus and thats what they do,bash games to make funny content but a lot of people interpreted their show as a review of the game which is stupid and unfair towards the game which ended up giving this game a bad name and that makes me very very sad. This is a good game . If you read this far i think we can be friends .on this note this review is done .
Take care.
Kanan out.

Solid shooting, bad AI, and really, really horrible level design. Having TWO long levels of nothing but figthing machinegun turrets deserves special mentioning.
Still better than majority of what passes for a FPS nowadays.

With pricetag like that, you'll get your money's worth even if you drop it to hell after few levels.
