This is the most amazing game that i have ever seen in my life the community is so close its almost like you get to know everyone thats playing the game, you have plenty of practice time with bots and its ony 99 cents during the sale!!! I dont know why everyone on earth doesnt play this amazing game.

The only downside is how every game that you play after this will be boring because this game is so good

420/10 would play again

This game is by far the greatest game that valve has ever created. This game is a masterpeice that derserves a proper AAA release. After playing this game for a long time, I would reccomend this game to anyone with a PC. This is way better than games such as Counter-Strike, simply because of the fact that this game is stacked with content and the community is thriving. This game is made for the hardcore players,and this is the greates game of all time!!!

I really like the games that valve make but this one was not good in my opinion. There is a very small amount of servers that most of the time have 0 players and when i was playing it i got automatically kicked even though i was NOT doing anything wrong.

A surprisingly fun Valve game, but it's not as good if you don't have anyone to play with. I'd recommend it if you do.

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.
