Über dieses Spiel

Krater versetzt Sie in ein postapokalyptisches Schweden der Zukunft. Das einstige Zuhause von IKEA, Wikingern und Minecraft bildet heute die Heimat primitiver Wesen, die die restlos verwilderte Welt nach technologischen Artefakten abgrasen.
Am Rande einer gewaltigen Einschlagstelle, bekannt als der Krater, kämpfen drei Fraktionen um die Kontrolle über den großen Riss, welcher den Zugang zur Unterwelt ermöglicht. Ein schier endloses Gefüge aus Kavernen und Tunneln, die mit uralten Schätzen und Gefahren befüllt sind. Die Unterseite erstreckt sich bis in die Tiefen, wo die untergegangene schwedische Zivilisation haust.
Sie haben sich auf den Weg zum Krater gemacht, um eine Gruppe von Freibuddlern zu rekrutieren und am Goldrausch teilzuhaben, einer Reise, von der man entweder reich oder gar nicht zurückkehrt.

Hauptmerkmale:

Koop- und Einzelspielermodus sind nahtlos ineinander verzahnt - Sie entwickeln die selben Charaktere sowohl in den Einzel- als auch Mehrspielermissionen. Das bedeutet, dass Sie in der Einzelspielerkampagne eine offene Welt erforschen können und, wenn Ihnen der Sinn danach steht, denselben Charakter für gemeinsame kooperative Abenteuer mit Freunden verwenden können. Sämtliche Schätze und Erfahrungspunkte, die Sie sammeln, stehen Ihnen ungeachtet des Modus zur Verfügung. Und ja, auch die kommende PvP-Erweiterung wird Ihre gesamten Fortschritte berücksichtigen!
  • Unendliches Abenteuer - Egal wie tief Sie graben, in dieser offenen Welt mit ihren über 60 akkurat gestalteten Ortschaften, 200 Missionen und unzähligen, zufälligen Dungeons und Ereignissen gibt es immer noch etwas zu erforschen. Die Regionen reichen von kleinen Siedlungen mit einigen wenigen Einwohnern bis hin zu gewaltigen Städten wie die Hauptstadt Solside, der brodelnde Mittelpunkt der Region, wo Sie alle Sorten von Charakteren und Dienstleistungen finden werden.
  • Blicken Sie dem Schicksal ins Auge - Ihr Charakter muss es mit den Gefahren des Kraters aufnehmen können - wenn nicht, wird er mit permanenten Verletzungen oder gar dem Tode bestraft.
  • Bauen Sie alles selbst! - Von Gegenständen, Waffen und Ausrüstung bis hin zu den Fähigkeiten und Stärken Ihres Charakters können Sie dank des umfassenden Crafting-Systems von Krater sämtliche Dinge selbst anfertigen.
  • Einzigartige, dauerhaft beständige Charaktere - Durch das Erlernen neuer Fähigkeiten erlangen die abgebrühten Persönlichkeiten Ihres Teams neue Charakterzüge.
  • Ein wachsendes Abenteuer - Zukünftige DLC-Module werden die Welt von Krater im Rahmen aufregender Kampagnen um neue Regionen erweitern.

Sounds like a neat idea, the setting is something new, gameplay seems like a stripped-down single-player MMO. The weapon names are amusing, and upgrade options look like they could give some surprising depth. But the controls are absolutely abysmal. The game can't even figure out where the mouse is half the time, and exactly how far off it is varies enough that you can't compensate for the error. Even if, by sheer blind dumb luck, you manage to find the right place to click, the game frequently refuses to recognize input for no readily apparent reason. So in summary it's a good idea for a game but so badly coded that it's basically unplayable. I'm lucky I got this in a bundle, I don't recommend paying for it.

I've bought Krater as Early Access. And I can tell you that this game was one of the reasons why I am now completely cured of this Early Access. It looked promising, so promising in fact that I bought the unfinished product, even if this kind of game is not my cup of tea. Oh boy, was I disappointed.

I will not speak about game mechanics, since there are already enough well written reviews covering that up. I will only tell why you should not buy this game, not matter how cheap it is sold in the next sale.

Krater is pretty much in the same unfinished shape than the Eary Access version. The devs fixed some smaller things, forcing me to start over and over again, because everytime the update broke my save games. It still crashes, it still has problems with the webcode. But to me and other players one of the biggest problems of the game is the tiny font. As in "You need the Hubble telescope to read things" tiny. You can barely read item descriptions and crafting becomes a nice game of "squint & guess". People were complaining about this since the beta, but the devs just give a crap.

This game was already abandoned shortly after its release. The tiny font thing was never adressed, most of the bugs were never adressed. They released a single player character for 6 €, cashed in an went off to never look back.

Sadly, with a bit more work Krater could have earned a recommendation easily. It has charm, a great soundtrack, tons of fun loot, a nice crafting system and a great soundtrack. It even looks nice. Unfortunately the devs decided to leave this game alone and, considering Kraters still unfinished state, you should too.

A dungeon crawler done differently.

The good:
- unique setting
- has a good feeling
- being a better player (dying less) makes your team better
- extensive character building mechanics
- plenty to do

the bad:
- somehow isn't as much fun as aspected although it is difficult to pinpoint why
- feels a bit unpolished

a decent game but not great although all the mechanics are there. 7/10

I feel bad for Krater

You don't have to be good at RPG's or even played Krater as a whole game to notice that it has some great missed potentials.
It makes me just sad to see it there on my desktop catchng dust after the first four plays. But... I am not gonna let you stay in the dark with the reason why though;
point1 - the freedom you get from it
In Krater, you have the freedom to pick from 4 different classes, build a team out of them how ever it pleases you, change the loadout of your characters and get to explore a variating postapocalyptic version of what seemed to be Sweden.
now to be honest:some classes are just obviously overpowered compared to others (slayer to regulator) you have eight and i am not joking here, EIGHT different skills to chose from in the entire game. Each class has two and the teams you build can have three characters maximum.
Now to the loadout. Every character has two slots in the inventory. One for a weapons and one for a gadget. each weapong can only be used by one class and they normaly differ from one another like some flowerpots.
And finally the map: instant traveling to a point on the map is not only a thing required to get from one end of the game to another, it's also slow as hell because you get to see a little blinky ping representing your team going wherever you told it to on the map in a speed that makes you wonder if in postapocaliptic sweden legos spawn from the ground or shoes were entirely eradicated or both. Also the levels are either so small that you can call them 'tight' or are equaly tight tunnel systems who seamingly end up in postapocalyptic Russia.

Point 2 - Atmosphere
It is obvious that alot of love went into the graphical developement of Krater but there are still some things just get annoying over time; NPC's mainly looking like each other, a notexisting plot and the music.
Whith 'a nonexisting plot' I just want to underline that the game starts with all your characters being kicked of a town which they seem to have drunkenly terrorised and joining some kind of mercenary force which operates all over Krater. BAM raiders, freediggers, wildlife, reference to a country which cannot totaly be a reference to Germany ....WHAT?! why is everyone having bears and mooses in ther cellars? Why am I fighting people who dig holes into their own property? Oh wait... I am not fighting them? And why do i still not know any main villain? AND WHY HAS EVERYONE BECOME PYRO?! (ok the last one was unnecessary)
Last point was also listing the music... Well, this is what disappointed me the most about the game; there are 18 tracks in this game which are used as themes for the different places, but why do 17 of them sound almost the same?! I literaly tried to memorize them as different songs with all their particularities but still: 17 of them sound like one giant synthetic smooth jazz remix and one is a rock song, but you have practicaly no chance whatsoever to tell the most from each other! I wish they had put in some more different sounds into this game. the atmosphere is just depressing if every place sounds the same! And I mean the bad kind of depressing. Also the music is nothing special. Not only is the music not changing, but it's not even good.

Although it's a failure in my eyes and a waste of money I just can't stop myself from feeling pity for it.
Thanks for reading everyone.

As far as Hack and Slash and ARPG games go, Krater ticks off a lot of the cool features of such games as well as brings something new and fun to the table at the same time.

Hiring crew and controlling a team of three at a time is great. As fun as it is to be in control with your own hero, let's face it, it's absolutely boring when your one hero looks, feels and acts the same as every other user's hero if they happen to choose that race. So, how is Krater any different in that regards? Well, it allows for some diversity when you have a choice of 4 difference character classes. Ok, you're right if you're thinking that it's not that diverse but it's still a little bit different to just having on character, true?

Anyway, being able to install upgrades and travel all around a map in a pokemon style way is quite fun. You never know when your team will be stopped within a forest to battle some enemies or even do some side quests.

In my opinion, Krater is a really fun ARPG that should be given a chance. I'd love to try the multiplayer function; that side seems quite dead, sadly. I recommend it!

This game is like a rushed EA game.
There will never be more content updates.
There are even parts on the worldmap where you can read that the content there will be added in the future.
The game is more than 2 years old now and there will never be added something...

DO NOT BUY!

I will never buy a Fatshark game again after this scam!
Its a pity that more and more games end like Towns and Cube World...

DO NOT PUMP MONEY IN THIS UNFINISHED AND ABANDONED GAME!

Krater takes inspiration from a lot of sources and pools them together well.
It makes use of interesting unique classes in it's squad-based exploration and combat, where you essentially play the role of an un-seen party leader.
The game did suddenly have a steep curve in the difficulty, some ways into the game. But the pretty scenes, humourous dialogue, cool soundtrack and addictive play-style will keep you hooked.

A very unique, squad based ARPG. A tad repetitve but an very interesting plot / aesthetic and overall worth a buy when on sale. Recommended for anyone looking for a simplified ARPG with a fresh look and overall fun gameplay.

Krater is a game I really want to like, although it has some shortcomings.

First, the postitives:
+ post-apocalyptic, yet "fresh" setting (a krater in future Sweden)
+ nice art style
+ doesn't take itself too serious (also some nice pop-cultural references)
+ very cool system to modify skills and chars (via boosts/implants)
+ crafting system
+ "meaty" crits and nice fx
+ teleport to world map from everywhere
+ good loot is scarce (a plus in my book)
+ great name generator

Now the not-so-positives:
- booooring dungeons (only a few tile sets and it gets repetitive fast), almost no interactive objects or surprises and only a few rare special bosses
- much back-tracking if you want to explore the whole map
- opponents are just static groups in regular intervals in the dungeons
- not much tactic involved, more like button-smashing
- chars aren't really unique (with the exception of the DLC chars), they are randomly assembled and you can hire them in many towns
- chars have limited levels, which you can expand with money to a max of lvl 15 (which you can reach in maybe 2h per char), after that there is no char evolution other than gear/implants

That being said, this game would have had huge potential. Better maps and more interesting battles would have helped much. It just feels too generic as is.

Imo, the best thing would have been, if the game had had turn-based or rtwp-combat with a deeper skill system. I'm sure it would have been a (indie) success with that.

I'm giving this a thumbs-up, although the devs didn't realize the potential of the game. So far I have fun. Don't know if I will finish it though...

I do recommend this game, but not overwhelmingly. I like the world this game is set in, I like the characters, and I do like the graphics in this game. There definitely could've been some better refinement of the controls and I often feel like this game is just missing something that I can't quite put my finger on. I don't regret this purchase, but I was definitely hoping for just a little more from this one. This game is good if you enjoy playing games like Torchlight, Path Of Exile, Diablo, etc. I just think that those titles did it better.

Krater ist eines der Indie-Spiele, die definitiv unterschätzt werden.

Die Story spielt in einem postnuklearem Terrain, dass sehr stark an Fallout 1 und 2 erinnert. Unterspielt werden die Ereignisse mit humorvollen Situationen, die öfters mal ein Grinsen aus einem herausbringen.
Das Kampfsystem, sowie auch die Steuerung, sind eher in dem Bereich Torchlight + Diablo anzuordnen. Man steuert drei Charaktere, die mit Knüppeln, Feuerwaffen und Zauberstäben, sowie jeweils zwei aktiven Fertigkeiten, alles kurz und klein schlagen, was ihnen in den Weg kommt.
Dies alles erfolgt in einer stimmungsvollen Soundkulisse, die recht gut an den Hintergrund angepasst ist. Die Dialoge mit einigen Charakteren werden mit z.T. englischen Stimmen vertont. Das führt zu einem flüssigen Fortlauf des Spieles, da doch einige Personen sich bei kompletter Stille recht schnell gelangweilt fühlen.
Den Online-COOP konnte ich bisher nicht ausprobieren. Eine Onlinefunktion, welche im Singleplayer gestartet werden kann, ist mir zwar aufgefallen, jedoch konnte ich keine aktiven Spiele vorfinden. Einen Nachtrag zu diesem werde ich bei der nächsten Gelegenheit hinzufügen.

Nichtsdestotrotz würde ich dieses Spiel gerne weiter empfehlen. Der Metacritic Score ist meines Erachtens nach komplett fehlgeleitet. Im Spiel selbst sind mir weder Bugs, noch andere Probleme aufgefallen. Das Einzige, was mich an manchen Stellen störte war die verdammt schlechte Übersetzung. An manchen Stelle war es so grausam, dass man komplett den ganzen Text nicht verstand.


+ Grafik (+ graphics)
+ Soundkulisse (+ sound)
+ Atmosphäre (+ atmosphere)
+ Kampfsystem (+ fighting system)
+ Einsteigerfreundlich (+ beginner friendly)
+ Hardcore Mode :)

- Deutsche Übersetzung (- german translation)


Bewertung:

Grafik: 79/100
Sound: 74/100
Gameplay: 84/100
Multiplayer: -
Funfaktor: 80/100

Gesamt: 79/100

A lot of discussions have been going on about Krater. While some players praise the fresh rpg setting and the challenging quests, others critisize the imbalanced powers of the monsters.

Here is what I experienced:

Pros:

- easy to get started, self-explanatory game mechanics, well-made learning curve
- a solid story about abusing power, elite leaders and supressing the masses, set in a post-nuclear Sweden, with a good sense of humour
- long-time motivation for those who love challenges, as there are perfect builds to find, the limbo (a 45-level-dungeon) to raid etc.
- Nice graphic style, clean and fitting sounds and soundtrack

Cons:

- Disastrous balancing: Some enemies are way too weak, others will bring your team down in no time. It takes a lot of time to find a good build for the final battle - but it does not depend on your own skill, but more on puzzling together different boosters (that improve strength, defense, stamina etc)
- Boring quests, standard rpg loot & collect tasks
- The coop mode is only three levels - well, for a game that calls itself a coop game, it's sparse, to put it mildly

In the first ten hours of playing, I was about to tell friends to try out the game, as it had this fresh setting and things went on pretty well, absolving quests and looting dungeons. But then I was stuck more often due to strong enemies, no money to buy upgrades, and misspent boosters. The final battle got pretty frustrating as I did not find a build good enough to beat the final boss. Also, until today, I never found a single player in the coop lounge to join a game.

Concerning that, I would not recommend to buy this game until one is going for a challenging rpg.

3 out of 10

I stopped playing this game still far from finishing. Hence the thumbs down. It seems like a lot of development went into the basic world design and not enough into specific character, combat, quest and dungeon design. This makes the game very repetitive.
This is a top down RPG where you control a bunch of characters in a post apocalyptic world.

The good:
1. Quite nice basic design. It had a lot of potential.
2. It seems like the game is huge. Which is also a bad thing considering the simplicity of the combat system - you will get bored sooner or later.

The bad:
3. Character development is very simplistic. Each character has 2 skills. Forever!
4. Extremely repetitive action.

The ugly:
5. You have to pay to enable you to develop your characters past a certain level. Really irritating.
6. If you die (a lot on medium) you have to trudge all the way back from town through it all to where you died. Some sort of fast travel system would have made a world of difference.
