The amount of hours i spent playing this mod is sickening to look back at. Sadly, it seems to have died out quite a while back. And is pretty crappy IF playing on servers that doesn't run a thirdparty patch.

It was good times though.

Ricochet is one of the must fun games I've ever played. Too bad it's multiplayer only and almost no one plays it.

Seriously might buy it for people if they hit me up about it. This game really needs new players in it.

Need to review a game to get Community Badge lvl2.
Unfortunately i have played this game mostly before i started using Steam.

So i write a review and try to post it but i havent played enough.
Next i started the game and switched back to my review (everything in the SteamClient) and guess what? Yes my review was gone and i had to write this one.

The campaign is amazing, on the first mission I thought I was playing mafia 3 but then i realized that this is ricochet, a game with the campaign that is what half life 4 should have been, the visuals are amazing which is an added bonus, as soon as I threw the first disc I knew what I was in for.

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 :(

Ricochet is perhaps the Game i've ever played. The first time I started this game, I was blown right away by the Main Menu art and the background score and I knew it that it would keep me hooked until the end, and it did.

This Game is not your regular game as it's quite challenging, perfect for me but some casual players may find it difficult to play because this game severely punishes you for your mistakes. Initially it took me a while to get used to the controls because you cannot re-map them, it's not a big deal but it would be great if we could.

The Visuals are breathtaking as you will just stop by and gape at the gorgeous art for minutes. The Audio department did a great job in making the high quality sounds, even minute sounds can be heard clearly. You may get frustrated in certain parts but it's the beautiful sountracks that encourages and keeps you going, and thats an important aspect of a game. They are so beautiful that you just wanna die in peace listening to them. The Dialogues are mystically unique, they don't actually make any sense but they sound so cool. The letdown is that they reused most of the same dialogues in some scenes.

Coming to the story, its very emotional and may make you cry easy peasy. Its not complex as The Walking Dead or something but its a Heart touching story. I hate to admit this but tears came to my eyes at the ending, and I'm sure that I'm not the only one.

So yeah, every aspect of the game is damn-near perfect. Do yourself a favor and get this Masterpiece, it's worth every penny.


TL;DR:

Pros:
Fluid Gameplay
Heart touching Story
Breathtaking Visuals
Cool Dialogues
Beautiful level design
Animation variety
Amazing Soundtracks by Gareth Coker
Cons:
Reused Dialogues
Cannot remap controls
Maybe too difficult for some?
Can't return to some areas
Glitchy Leaderboard
Bash Skill control using Keyboard

Simply put, it's a Masterpiece

10/10
