I was the only person on when I went to check it out.
It took me a moment to realize I got this as part of a bundle, I had wondered why I'd buy such a thing.

Richochet is Valves masterpiece and has a very in-depth story about a couple of guys throwing discs at eachother on platforms.

Jokes aside the game is pretty fun and hard to master, 5 servers with like 3 people on one server.

Forgotten game that no one knows about, so sad :(

I actually enjoyed Ricochet. Don't listen to all of the hate it gets. Now, I wouldn't recommend spending £4 on the game alone, but if you buy the CS Anthology or Valve Complete Pack, then give it a try. Sure, you'll find very few people. Sure, the gameplay is hard to get used to. But damn, does it feel good to soar through the air, decapitate a man and carry on. Now, so far I've only played one map, and only against bots, but I'm sure I'm going to play some more. Here are some things I liked and disliked -


PROs -
  • Variety of powerups, each spawning randomly every time.
  • Two ways to kill: hitting off the edge, or decapitating.
  • An interesting way of managing how many shots you shoot at once.
  • No fall damage! Use those jump pads as much as you like!

CONs -
  • You cannot shoot up or down. This leaves out any potential of getting an awesome kill after falling.
  • Very few people who actually play. Yeah, this isn't the game's fault, or Volvo's fault. It's the same with most multiplayer games that aren't relatively new, such as HL:DM or DoD.
  • Few official maps to play.
  • NO official Valve servers.
  • When bodyslamming a player in midair, not much happens, and it tends to be kinda glitchy.


    I could probably list more PROs and CONs for Ricochet if there was a need/if I played more, however I don't feel a need at this time. I'd give it a 7.3/10. Don't bother buying it individually, but if you get it in a pack, give it a try. It's a piece of Valve's growing history, even if not one of their best moments.
