An absolute pleasure to play through. Ricochet goes where no other Valve game has ever been before - You take control of Pert Kravelski, another overlooked escapee of the Black Mesa Research Facility introduced in Valve's hit title "Half-Life" whose goal throughout the entire game is to discover the Saisei code (which I won't spoil for you who don't know what that is).

Since Pert's family was kidnapped by the Task Force which invaded the Black Mesa Research Facility in Half-Life, his goal is to break into the barracks of the Task Force and retreive his family, after wasting each and every soldier in the facility, but there is an extremely poetic, creative and unexpected plot-twist which prevents you from doing so (this is the meat of the story)

The game runs unbelievably smooth for the time it was made, and the graphics are just stunning. I can't fathom why the Valve fanbase completely dismissed this game, as its feature-set, physics, *and* graphics rival that of Half-Life 2.

Buy. This. Game.

I would recommend this game... if your getting it for yourself and your friends

Servers are dead but I managed to get half an hour af gameplay on a server with 3 other people and it is actually a really decent game!

But for the lack of players, I reccomend that you should get this game in a bundle like the Counter-Strike 1 Anthology or the Valve Complete Pack because $5 is too much for a dead game

Perhaps one of the greatest First-Person Shooters of our time, Valve has managed to redeem themselves from the absolute shitfest known as "Half-Life" with Ricochet. Never before has such revolutionary gameplay been unleashed unto our hard drives with such elegance and class. The core mechanics of "dodge and then shoot your opponents" and a never before seen in-depth combo system (predating complex games like Batman: Arkham Asylum by years) completely smashed the conventions of the genre when it broke onto the scene in late 2000. The charts don't lie when they say Ricochet outsold ♥♥♥♥♥ whipped "shooter" games like Perfect Dark and Aliens Vs Predator at a 3:1 ratio, and for good reason! Who here could honestly forget such classic maps like "Deathmatch 2" and "Arena" compared to the same old lame ♥♥♥ De_dust2's and 2Fort's?

Sadly, a jewish plot has emerged from the murky depths of the darknet to tell us otherwise; but I am here to help you wade your way out of the Kool-Aid pool and into the ever beckoning rabbit hole of freedom. John Carmack is a well known member of the Rothchilds industrial complex and JIDF, which has allowed for a complete whitewash over the video games industry. He has slept with atleast five prominent figures in the business, three of which have been confirmed: Sergey Titov (of Big Rigs and The War Z acclaim), John Romero, and later Gabe Newell among others in exchange for the complete deletion and issue of Cease & Desist orders to anything and everything related to Ricochet. This paved the way for the great Video Games Crash and the subsequent release of "progressive" and "sensitive" games like Quake III: Arena, Unreal Tournament 2004, etc. etc. which have been sonicpowered MEGAPHONES for so-called "Social Justice Warriors" to co-opt the hobby and effectively kill Ricochet's community.

I implore you to shell out the $4.99 USD for this magnificent pioneer of the FPS Dungeon Crawler genre and ignore ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ JIDF/SJW propaganda like Hatred or Postal 2 which have burrowed their fat, agenda-ridden abdomens into our rights as god fearing American citizens.

I'm still playing this game, with some people. Dang, it always fun.
If you never play this game, I feel sorry for you.

Valve, please make a Source engine version of this game!

I thought Richochet was one of the old Half Life mods that is overlooked. I just got it today but spent about 20 minutes on it. There is like one populated server but it is extremely fun. TRy it.

I got this in the Steam Bundle pack and it is a really cool game, but the only problem is that lots of the servers are like 0/32 0/24 0/420 0/1337 so just buy the Steam Bundle please.



Also it is the best falling while throwing a frisbee sim ever 69/10. That is all goodnight.

This game is awesome; if you go on an empty server and wait a few minutes it will pile up. With a few graphical updates and a way to spend points it would be a great game!
I don't play often, but when I do, I play for about an hour. It is addictive.
Buy it.
