About the Game

War is Hell
NecroVision is a first-person shooter that takes gamers across the frantic battlegrounds of World War I and into a dark underworld of vampires, demons and dark magic.
Seeking adventure, young American Simon Bukner joins the British army in war-torn Europe of 1916. During a particularly ferocious battle, Bukner and his battalion are pushed into a series of dark trenches where they encounter mysterious phenomenon. As they move through the labyrinth they discover that there is a greater evil hiding underneath the battle-fields of the Great War — an evil that is forcing its way into our world and threatens to wipe out humanity. In the depths of this newly discovered underworld, Bukner must confront the dark forces and fight for the survival of mankind.

Fast-paced and fun the whole way through. I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for a unique shooter with a great setting. There are so few games that take place during WWI so it was refreshing to see a shooter choose that time period over WWII. The dual weapon system was different from anything I had seen in other shooters and it added another great layer of gameplay.

I love this game! Every official review of it I've found was mostly negative but it is what it is. Yes it's linear, yes it's about as good as games were a few years ago, but it's good value for money and it's immersive, which is more than I can say for Halo, Call of Duty, Medal of Honor and a host of other turkeys that flapped into my barn.

One of the best FPS I've ever played. Loved the fact that you can shoot, kick, melee and perform combos to attack enemies. The ambience is great, long and big levels with lot of details and locations to explore. There's a playable demo so go on and try it for youself, if you liked the demo, the full version goes better and better.

It's a horror mixture of Serious Sam and Painkiller. The levels are too long and doesn't know how to end, but it's full of action and full of surprises.

I do not recommend you buy this for the online gameplay as it is no longer supported, so you are only left with the story mode which is actually quite interesting. I recommend it for the gore and fun.

Once upon a time, Painkiller, Wolfenstein and Bioshock f*cked together and then Necrovision was born...

It's nice shooter with old school vibe - bosses, big levels, lots of ammo, puzzles, switches, secret places, etc...
The visuals are not top notch, but fits well. The cutscenes and voice acting are TERRIBLE, there are many bugs and glitches, but the game is actualy fun to play and thats where it shines - the gameplay.

Nice mechanic is the use of melee combat (and shadohand on later stages), alongside with the pistol.
Once the player get the shadowhand, the gameplay is becoming closer to the Bioshock series, cause the different spells, combined with the tipical gun shooting. Controls are little different compared to the Bioshock though - left mouse button for the left hand, right mouse button for the right hand.

I said "combined", so now is the time to mention the COMBOOOS.
Our hero have three types of melee attacks - kick, left hand melee and gun melee attack. The bayonettas and the shovels can be thrown at the enemies to nail them on the wall, the gas lamps exept to light the way, can be used to burn the hordes of undeads and freaky creatures. The arsenal is impressive.
It's good to perform different attacks to create combo. For example - knock down the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ on the ground and then finish him out with the pump. Or slice him with the bayonetta for the "Herr Doktor" combo.

There are different "challenge rooms", which becomes avalible after beating any given level. The challenge rooms helps the player to permanently unlock different gear types to be avalible in the inventory.
There are parts of the game when the player controls giant mech or even ride a dragon. Yeah, the it's total mashup of many mechanics from different games (there is even bullet time system implemented in it), but it fun to play and it works...for the most of the time.

It's not AAA title, it screams "I'M A CHEAP, LOW BUDGET, SOMETIMES UGLY GAME", but it's charming in some inexplicable way. So, try it!

7/10
