C'mon, it's not THAT bad.
 
When you really sit down and give this game a chance, there are some respectable qualities to the game, despite it being Original Xbox quality. Sure, it has poor graphics and sluggish gameplay, but it's definitely not the worst game I've ever played, you know?

The fact that you only ever start out with a rifle and pistol is kind of irritating, but the occasions when you get the assault rifle/shotgun/giant mortar launcher were rather fun imo.

The voice acting isn't terrible and the score is actually quite relevant. Audio-wise, it's pretty good. Except the melee thud. Terrible.

And as far as how fluid it is.. Well, it plays like a computer game on a normal household computer. Good, okay, and glitchy at times, but in the end, acceptable.

So come on guys, don't give this game too bad a rep. I'm sure the producers worked really hard on it and are probably very proud of it. For their first go at an Xbox 360 game, I'd give them a C. So for anyone looking to buy, rent, or borrow this game, give it a chance. It's not as bad as everyone seems to think.

I did enjoy this game, too. I thought the story was pretty good for it. My only problems with it was the boss lady in the monitor was a little weird and I actually thought the voice acting was a bit off. Other than that is was an enjoyable game.

Totally with you guys, no where near the worst game ever.

I think you'll find those that say it is are MW2 fanboys. Ahh thats the problem with the younger generation, so spoiled, they have never played an apple IIe, atari 2600 or commodore 64 and therefore believe its their right to have such high quality games.

They just don't appreciate the simple things, like just enjoying a game for being unique, or the fact that it was written by some backyard Devs.

thats all nice and good. but the game wasnt very good in any sense to me, except for the end when your storming a coliseum or something. Then it was pretty good. But what really got under my skin was the damn civil war areas. ughh. Thank god i got my 1g and bolted lol. But i do give the developers credit, hell, i couldnt do it.

This game was heavily flawed and poorly created. Graphics were subpar and the storyline was ridiculous. I mean they send you back in time, tell you change history, but to be inconspicuous about it, but then they have you running around with a sighted SO-COM weapon while all the other soldiers are using muskets and bolt-action weapons. Completely absurd-

It's good to hear that some people actually enjoyed this game, but I would have to say it IS that bad. Pretty much every enemy has the same face, the voice acting (especially the parts in Russian/German) sucked, there are invisible wall all over the place and the check point system was designed by someone with sever brain damage.

Oh, and I am by no means a MW2 fanboy and actually owned a Commodore 64 myself (Gateway to Asp rules by the way). And if they expect 60 dollars from a consumer (thank god for Gamefly) we have every right to expect a certain level of quality. I would pay no amount of money to own this game.

I really liked the idea of this game. It would be fun to do a time travel game where you had modern weapons and could kill anyone.

Deadly Noob92 01-23-2011 06:17 AM

i think its interesting that they have civil war, pompei and ww1. more games should be made in these theaters. im getting sick of ww2 and modernized warfare. now vietnam era is the fad. wonder what the next will be, lol.

SinisterScythe 01-25-2011 03:40 PM

C'mon, it is that bad. This thread is like looking at a turd. You might be able to find a few redeemable or interesting qualities, but at the end of the day you still spent far too much time analyzing fecal matter. hahaha

BrashSPARTAN300 01-25-2011 03:41 PM

I didnt think it was the worst game either but fighting future soldiers in time periods like the Civil War kind of pissed me off lol.....I would have rather just used a muzzleloader and bayonet and keep history straight.

Found this game for $20 at Best Buy. Found it at Fry's earlier for $5 cheaper, but when I came to buy it, was gone.

Horse puncher, here I come.

I just finished this and I have to agree,there are actually a few moments that are quite fun.In the hands of a different dev team this have could have been a very good series.Now watch for Bethesda to buy it out...

kvidano1 02-26-2012 03:46 PM

I agree it definitely wasn't as bad as people made it out to be. Sure there were a some bad aspects but overall it was pretty enjoyable

Eggnogga 03-26-2012 12:04 AM

I picked it up on the Games on Demand section, strictly because it isn't a kids game and it's an easy 1000.

I only managed to do about 7 missions thus far... strictly WWI & Civil War. My gripes with the game are -- I have no idea what i'm doing. All the enemies look the same from your AI teammates... in the last Civil War mission I did, I got tired of sitting there with the constant respawning enemies, so I just ran from checkpoint to checkpoint.

It has some redeeming aspects.. but.. they get outweighed by the crappy gameplay.

magikod 06-22-2012 01:54 PM

It's a decent game, nothing great but def not one of the worst games ever.

I just got it recently on sale, basically just to get the achievements for it.

This GAME is a travesty. for f*cks sakes, I don't know what game you are playing, but I just got my 1000 in it and cannot wait to send it back to Gamefly. Worst game of the 360 generation easily....and I have played many MANY dogs.

iamtfc 02-10-2013 05:35 PM

This needed more polish before it went out. Things like enemies hiding inside trees for invulnerable cover, chasers not triggering on command, and enemies that sometimes seem to just plain old not get hit by my point blank shots really got me POed.

It's a shame, as I kinda liked the premise and would have liked to have seen a sequel that fixed all the flaws.
