Bodycount 'Behind the Bullets' Part 4 Shoots Online
Written By
View author's profile

Bodycount has its single-player mode with level completion grades and leaderboards, but what you may not know is that it'll also have a pretty hefty online mode too, with a co-op Siege mode in which you and a friends tackle waves of increasingly tough enemies.

Then there's the competitive online multiplayer aspect, which includes Network versus Target Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, wherein you can shred up the scenery, blast an enemy through a wall with a shotgun and just wreak general havoc with explosions aplenty.

You can then pick up intel, leading to perks being activated, which are your "get out of jail free cards". Things like explosive bullets, airstrikes and radar. Check out the new dev diary to see Bodycount's multiplayer in action. Bodycount is out on August 23rd in North America and September 2nd in Europe.

I live near the studio that made this game and dare I say it have a friend who has worked on it. Still pick it up and give it a go though I mean BLACK was the freaking nuts back in the day.

The demo was rubbish, it was like a cross between Brink and Borderlands, only really really bad.

Hadn't really heard anything about this game. Doesn't look awful, but won't do well against MW3 and BF3 coming out soon. The online community won't last long.

average at best, the way the left trigger lets you lean on the spot, instead of moving around, while aiming down the sight just felt wrong.

Looks about as average as Homefront did.

While I give credit to developers trying to create shooters and trying to make them as/more popular as BF or CoD, at the same time I think all devs should just give up until next console generation. It just 'never' works.

For the next 3-4 years, it will be nothing but BF3 and CoD ruling the FPS genre, it sucks but it's true. Probably more considering sh*t loads of people still can't see through Activision's little scheme of releasing the same little glitch fest with new cover art every year.

Oh well. It has to end one day... I hope.

Game looks fun, but I haven't tried the demo yet; too busy with Deus Ex. Still, I'll give this one a try. Everybody bashes BF and CoD for doing the same thing over and over, but when something different comes along the same people say "oh, this isn't like BF and CoD, so it will fail." I'll give it a chance. I liked Homefront and Crysis, because they were a change of pace. No, they weren't as popular as the big boys, or as polished, but they were fun for a while. I suspect this one will be the same way. Either way, I think I'll judge it by playing it, not just from a few screenshots and trailers. Peace.

The DEMO was CRAP. Horrible controls. Dumb cover system. Your character can jump about 2 inches. So generic. It's sad that people put their names on this. Why don't FPS developers actually compare their controls to that of HALO or COD before releasing a game? There is no comparison. HALO and COD flow so naturally, these cheap knock offs are pathetic. I would have loved to have been a tester for this game. FAIL...FAIL...FAIL

@18 Ive seen ur posts and u seem to be very open to new games/ideas, but trust me, try the demo before buying this. It really isnt as good as i thought it would be. Just not put together well and not fun to play.

This game could have been good but no ADS i mean mostly every FPS have it i understand your trying to be unique but we ditched the aim and peek system a long time ago. Notice how there is very little movement in the video above case closed. Looks good too its a shame.

It a RENTAL, thats all.

i play the Demo, thought okay, so far so good.

I was WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!! i got Bored.

this game is a RIP OFF of Bulletstorm, with the skillshots, how i saw it.

point is, i'll pass on this game, and either get Warhammer 40k: Space Marine, great DEMO, or Deus Ex Human Revolution, or Both.

Played the demo. While not very impressive, I didn't find it unplayable. The controls take getting used to but I got the hang of them about halfway through the demo. I agree that it has been a long time since having to do the "peek out from cover" thing, but I think that was included due to the erosion of most sources of cover. I also noticed that there will be other control configurations included in the full game that are not available in the demo. I would be surprised if one of them is not more like CoD, Halo, etc.

Still, all told I think this one will be a fun, short rent. That's about all Black was for me. I enjoyed it, but it was really pretty forgettable. I see this one being the same way.

On a side note, Tonstar64, thanks for disagreeing with me without being a jerk about it. I think that's the most constructive and polite dissenting opinion I've ever seen to something I've said. Peace.
