Om detta spel

Krater: Co-Op är den senaste kostnadsfria expansionen till det realtidsgruppbaserade-dungeon crawling-äventyret Krater. Spelet kombinerar strid i högt tempo, taktisk grupphantering, tillverkning och uppdrag, allt från ett klassiskt RTS-perspektiv.

Även om spelets kampanj kan spelas offline, så lägger Co-Op-expansionen till möjligheten att ta sig an timmar av särskilt utformade online-Co-op-banor och bossar. Mycket annat har också fått små ändringar/förbättringar, allt från spelbalans till en bättre föremålsgenerering till ombyggd HUD och jämnare grafisk prestanda.

Spelet tar med dig långt in i framtiden till ett postapokalyptiskt Sverige. Det som en gång var hem till IKEA, Vikingar och Minecraft befolkas idag av primitiva invånare, sökandes i den lummigt övervuxna världen efter teknologiska reliker.

Vid kanten av en nedslagsplats, känd som Kratern, tävlar tre faktioner om kontroll över ingången till världen därunder. I en ändlös serie av grottor och tunnlar, fyllda med uråldriga skatter och faror, sträcker sig Undersidan ner i djupet av den fallna svenska civilisationen. Du anländer till Krater med din grupp frilansare för att ta del av guldrushen där folk återvänder rika eller inte återvänder alls.

Innehåll:

  • Co-op-äventyr - Leta föremål tillsammans genom timmar av särskilt utformade co-op-uppdrag. Besegra svåra co-op-bossar tillsammans och ta med dina erövringar tillbaks till huvudkampanjen.
  • Obegränsat utforskande - Oavsett hur djupt du tar dig finns det alltid mer att utforska i Kraters öppna värld. Fullproppad med med slumpgenererade banor och händelser, mer än 60 handgjorda unika platser och över 200 uppdrag. Platserna omfattar allt från mindre bosättningar till stora stadsområden som Solside City, ett myllrande regionscentrum där du kan hitta massor av olika slags NPC:er och tjänster.
  • Prestationer - Ta över 40 prestationer online eller offline.
  • Unikt Beständiga Karaktärer - Se på när ditt lag av udda personligheter utvecklas då de går upp i nivå och får nya förmågor, men...
  • Ta ansvar för konsekvenserna - Dina karaktärer måste klara av farorna på Krater - annars riskerar de att få permanenta skador eller kanske till och med att dö!
  • Tillverka Allt! - Från prylar, vapen och utrustning till dina egna karaktärers egenskaper och krafter, allt går att tillverka i Kraters omfattande craftingsystem
  • Unik grafisk stil - Krater använder sig mycket väl av Bitsquid-motorn, som har utmärkta Direct X11-funktioner och ljuseffekter, för att bygga ett unikt universum fullt av of soldränkta byar och imponerande omgivningar, färgglada effekter och komplexa karaktärer.
  • Ingen obligatorisk uppkoppling till onlinetjänst - För dem som hellre undviker online-spel och inloggningsskärmar, leverarar Krater en fullständig enspelarkampanj i ett offline-läge.

Krater is a game which can neither be wholly dismissed nor whole-heartedly embraced. The tactical team-based RTS/ARPG hybrid battle-system is exciting, innovative, and well-implemented, while various tweaks to the typical ARPG formula show the thoughtfulness of passionate game design. The graphic design is consistent and thematically appropriate throughout. Sadly, Krater plays like a concept demo - a few hours of fun as you acclimate to the control scheme and unique design elements, followed by a steep drop-off in variety. The crafting system is essentially a grinding-incentiviser, and character progression is bizarrely limited in ways which are obviously designed to conjure up more grindplay. While the four classes do allow for some interesting combinations and teamwork, each class has only two skills. Although these skills can be tweaked in a variety of ways thanks to the unique augmentation system, the actual gameplay is largely unaffected by these tweaks and runs together in a wash of habitual button-mashing.

In many ways Krater succeeds - the writing is quirky, the world interesting, and the graphics stimulating. Unfortunately at the core of it all is an exceedingly repetitious experience. If your love for grinding or your desire to explore outweigh your distaste for repetitive gameplay, there is a unique and rewarding experience to discover here. Otherwise, avoid investing yourself in Krater: its innovation is only skin deep.

With a broken heart i do not recommend this game.

It had the potential to be a better title than borderlands.

It had great setting, exceptional soundtrack, humour and story.

And then... everything just froze. And we have another example that
backing early access doesn't always pay off. Or should I say 'rarely pays off'?

It's an unfinished game that most probably will never be finished. As of now (2015) i'd say it's stuck not even halfway.

I tried launching it after almost two years. Thought that I'd just play it for a moment and spill a tear or two.

Now it crashes even before the tutorial.

Premise
Krater is an aRPG, Diablo-Baldur's Gate crossover where you control a party of three characters, swappable between the fights with no limitations. Before you read the whole review and flip the table because I recommend you to try the demo: I recommend you to try the demo.

The class system
The class is immediate and simple, yet it offers a lot to play with: there are four basic classes and two races, humans and mutants; every class has two abilities, that are different from humans and mutants. We have 16 different abilities to play with, so.
The four classes are:
  • The Bruiser: the tank of the team capable of sustaining a large amount of damages
  • The Medic: pretty obvious
  • The Regulator: a very useful support class, capable of stunning and slowing with the power of the electricity
  • The Slayer: a strength based character.
Has to be mentioned how some abilities have very small differences, however, different abilities may lead to a complete different kind of build on the character.

Ability system and diversification
Every few levels we will unlock ability booster slots and implant slots, the former allow us to link a booster to our ability, the latter to link it to our character, improving our basic stats (we'll get to them in a moment).
The booster we can bind to our abilities vary from Power boosters, which improve the damage of our abilities, to Healing boosters, which gives life drain or heal aspects, to boosters that temporarily improve our stats.
The stats are:
  • Strength: determines the amount of physical damage we do.
  • Stamina: determines our maximum HP
  • Focus: improves the healing effects of our abilities and the ranged physical damage
  • Intelligence: decreases the cooldowns of the abilities we use
  • Defence: reduces the damages taken

The game and its core mechanics
Game installed, new adventure begins, we're thrown in a very short and yet useful tutorial level; it tells us why we are where we are and lets us familiarise with the combat mechanics. Quite simply, right click on an enemy and wait until it dies, using the abilities of our characters when they're not under cooldown. A very simple and immediate mechanic, so, that is easy to learn and efficient to use to blend very RPG-like elements to the frenetic action of the combats; however, this wores out quickly, and in late game becomes kind of annoying, leaving the player no solution but to fall back on the booster/implants build to differentiate the gameplay.

Execution
The graphic engine isn't the lightest in the world, but it's still pretty accessible, granting very interesting visuals and effect, even though we may notice rare graphic artifacts here and there, such as blinking pool of blood. What is disappointing is how sometimes the game fails to read our inputs, truly annoying when there are enemies on the screen: think how fun it can be to use an ability that won't trigger (or won't do it every time with the same sequence of inputs), or having your characters turning back and running towards the enemies they were fleeing from. Fortunately, this is a minor issue that happens every once in a while, so even though it has some major influence when it happens, it can be overlooked if you like the rest of the game.
The sound department is what has stricken me the most: while the voice acting is kind of minimal, it's present and shows a successful effort to improve the immersion. The voices are in line with the game: humorous and funny, a good thing that reminds me of the Final Fantasy saga (Krater takes a good amount of inspiration from it, indeed). The sound effects are great, and you might often take a break from the game, listening the birds chirping with a beautiful background music.
The durability is another good point: the Single Player campaign won't take us less than 12 hours, and to defeat the last boss we need a good party, which will probably require several hours of grinding to find all the things we need. This is a game that can entertain us for dozens of hours, if we can overlook how repetitive it tends to be once reached the end game, or if we simply love the good old grinding for items and gold, Diablo II style.

Conclusion
Krater is an indie game not free of flaws, but capable of gifting hours and hours of fun to those who can go beyond its deficiencies and limitations, easily worth its full price, a rip-off on sale.
Buy it if you like action RPG and dungeon crawlers with a good humor, but most likely try the demo, as this is a very particular and unique game.

This is a good game for those who like to fight all of the time or to craft items. It is however not very good when it comes to buying anything or trying to make any money at all. Prices are in the realms of the ridiculous and money earned by loot dropped is pitiful. I have enjoyed playing this game so far but would only recommend it to those who have a massive amount of patience.
