Recenzje

“…Wasteland Angel is a game that has captured my heart. I squealed with delight when I got to see the carnage first hand…”
– GamersDailyNews

“There are a whole lot of mutants and crazies to blow up, and Wasteland Angel provides a lot of fun ways to do so.”
– GameFront

“Wasteland Angel is one of those games you want on your games list, even if it’s just for a quick adrenaline fuelled warband killing romp. You will always come back to it when you have some time to kill, or whenever some punk has topped your score. GREAT!” EGamer

“Wasteland Angel is a good amount of game for a great price. Any fan of oldschool shmups will be pleased, and newer gamers will have a ton of fun with game that is easy to jump in to and blow stuff up.” Grade B - The Multitap

Informacje o grze

Bummer! World War III happened and killed most of the world’s population. The ones that got toasted were the lucky ones. Survivors live in constant fear of being murdered or enslaved by violent gangs, renegade military units and, of course; mutants.

Outfitted with a heavily armored car, unlimited firepower and a thirst for vengeance, our Heroine – the Wasteland Angel roams the radioactive wastes, travelling from one God-forsaken town to the next, protecting survivors from being enslaved. She’s on a mission, to defend those that can’t defend themselves.

Wasteland Angel is a throw-back to the era of vintage arcade shooters, where players fend off waves of enemies and ultimately face-off against epic end-level bosses. From a top-down isometric view, players pilot the Wasteland Angel’s overpowered vehicle as its dual machine guns cut a swath across the terrain. To handle whatever the gangs, muties and renegades throws her way, Wasteland Angel has upgradeable weapons and ammo that can rip enemies from this life and toss them into the next.

Key features:

  • 24 Levels of fast-paced action across 6 ravaged landscapes
  • 3 Enemy Factions including Gangers, Renegades and Mutants
  • 4 Difficulty Levels from beginner to suicide
  • Different mission objectives from escort to an all-out offensive
  • Super weapons increase the carnage, including: Mines, Napalm, EMP and Nukes
  • Huge boss battles to test your skill and stamina
  • Bonus levels featuring FPS driving/shooting mayhem
  • Online Scoreboards for each Difficulty Level
  • Star ratings for all levels and 40 achievements for all completionists

there are a couple redeeming sides to this classical top-down (mostly) driving-shooting game - story, as much as this type of game needs one, and the fact that it partially is a good bit of fun.

it takes a couple hours to run this through on easy and considerably more on hard or nightmare where you definitely will retry and retry and retry several of the fairly lengthy levels. with how repetitive it is, i do not see many people wanting to do that.

i cannot really recommend this is earnest. there are bits of fun in there but as this game type/genre is seeing revival recently, if you really need to mindlessly drive and shoot in top-down perspective - you would probably be better off with another game.

technically, it is mostly competent. while not looking exceptional, it looks good or ok - except for the out-of-box 1st person perspective bonus levels where models have the same level of detail as top-down perspective and look like something from end of 90s. control scheme is adequate and keys can be remapped. for some reason every time i started the game from steam, it decided it needs to run a visual c installer with the uac prompt this causes but that might be just my environment.

the only technical gripe is about clipping problems. when you run into something that obstructs the screen, you can get stuck and not even see which way you are facing, making it really difficult to get free quickly. also, the decision to reverse the direction immediately when you drive straight out the level limits is occasionally very annoying, especially in the last set of levels where one of the cities is right at the edge of level.

unfortunately, there is the main downside - this game is repetitive. repetitive, repetitive, repetitive.

you have 3 or 6 different levels and 3 sets of enemies plus bosses but there is no real variance.
- levels are functionally all the same - first you defend one city at day, then at night, then 2 cities on similar map at day, then at night. repeat that three times.
- there are three types of enemies - one that fights you, one that steals civilians and one that does both. the three sets - they are just different skins for the same functions.
- bosses are formulaic as well. big, deal and absorb a lot of damage, can be killed with gathered superweapons.

I think this game is ok for what it tends to be.

It's a straight forward - some may call it dumb - little shooting game where you drive a car around a settlement and shoot every other car that comes close. The game seems to have a story but it's overall forgettable as the game itself is a simple arcade-style setting throwing wave after wave of enemies at you.

Some of the enemies just try to kill you, other ones sort of "dock" to your settlement and try to kidnapp the people from it while you have to prevent then from doing so by killing them of course. Then there is a third type of enemy that can be either of the two types but you can't tell in advance because of their look.

That's quite all there is. Between waves you can replenish your health and often killed enemies leave power-ups behind that give you a better shot or more ammo.

As I said before this game could easily be called dumb but it tends to be that way by design. So I personally wouldn't call it dumb but arcade-ish. Just like in the good old days. Don't think - just shoot.

One thing that is annoying though is the standard joypad-setup, but once you set it to "standard-PSX-style" controls (for eg x is gas, shoulder buttons for shooting) it's ok and very direct with no mentionable input lag.

One big advantage of this game is that is seems to support any gamepad you throw at it and not just the x-box one which I found very nice since I tend to use a "Thrustmaster Modena Vibrating U-Pad" that I got pretty used to by now and while the game does support this by default I hadn't to fiddle around with xpadder or something else to get it up and running.

I would recommend this game for people who like oldschool arcade style shooters. Maybe not for full price but for sure when it's on sale, just like it is atm I'm writing this.

I liked games like this back in the days and I'm still happy to find new games like this nowadays.

If you're serious about wether you could like it too or not just try the demo. It's a fair deal - so get it!

Stay away. Compared to titles like Renegade Ops this game looks like a waste of time. Shallow, repetitive and boring gameplay, where you just drive around in very small piece of land and fight boring, worthless and sometimes barely functional enemies.

I tried to like this, I tried to finish this. But... it wasn't to be. Having had quite a bit of fun with top-down drivers in the past, be they racers or shooters, I had high hopes for Wasteland Angel. While it wasn't the worst game I've ever played, the game still disappointed on almost every front. Although... if you are an achievement hunter, the 40 achievements are not TOO difficult to acquire...

The campaign is only 6 chapters/levels divided into 2 missions, one boss fight, and one bonus mission - very short indeed. The plot was essentially irrelevant. Worse yet, the game is incredibly repetitive and boring. Every chapter plays the same way, with the same enemies painted differently - only 3 generic enemy types, doing the same thing, over and over. And you, defending against them for wave on end. The maps are stale and all have the same objective: defend one area. Once during the day, once during the night, and then the same thing with two towns... Even the additional/optional objectives don't really bring anything interesting to the game: escort a vehicle to the town, pick up some crates, become a turret. However, the bonus missions are all the same and incredibly strange: changing you from a top-down view to a first-person view, where you either race for checkpoints or kill as many enemies as you can.

While the game offers weapon upgrades, they are arbitrary and do not carry over from a past map - every mission sees you start with the most basic weapons. Killing enemies and running over pick-ups automatically gives you more/better weapons. Sadly, you are unable to tinker with either your vehicle, or your weapons yourself.

Then there were the bugs. Being stuck in mid-air, enemy AI resulting in them being stuck and unable to move, and therefore unable to be killed (especially the bosses). This is complemented by the top-down camera angle, which can be blocked by terrain, causing you to get stuck. The automatic 180 degree reversal whenever you reach the edge of the map (which also isn't particularly well delineated) was also disorientating. These issues were exacerbated by the controls: while it may not be the case for everybody, the controls were very sluggish and laggy for me, making it incredibly difficult to turn.

Fun version of Car wars in the digital age.

CONSIDER THIS: THE TRUE GAME. I invite anyone reading this to consider the place of games in their lives. Do you feel it is an addiction or distraction? Do you feel it contributes to a sense of social and political lethargy? Does gaming function as an ajunct to TV as a form of mind control for (mostly) young males while you are being set up as potential recruit-fodder for the armed forces? There is a REAL game in this world. It is big and complex and totally worth playing. Before playing this game you should reflect on two things:
(1) What happens when a jet liner hits a large office tower?
(2) What happens when 200,000 on Structural steel in a 300 meter office tower collapses?
Compare your understanding for what happens in reality with what we were told haoppened on September 11 2001. If you notice a discrepancy you may be qualified to play the real game of life.
To play make your way to the nearest possible Freemasonic lodge and begin your application.
Talk to you again when you pass level 20 of the sacred order.
