Playing through some of the tech demos we could hardly believe
how wonderful this game really is. Blow a hole in some ice with
your rockets, then lower a submarine into the open waters and
climb aboard for an interesting change in pace and combat -
all without a single level change. That's another thing, levels,
being a game based on physics and realism you can also expect
the level designs to follow suit.
a kind of Aliens come Half Life style and one you won't soon
forget, either way the tech-ish look is well laid out and quite
impressive in its own right. So far RF looks the business and
it's barely even out of alpha stage. However, don't expect to
be able to totally nuke levels, Volition know that would destroy
the gameplay and so have limited GeoMechs use. The good news
is not by much, just enough to stop people loosing the plot
and getting lost in geometry destruction.
When finished we expect RF to beat Half Life hands down, it's
taking single player first person perspective games to a whole
new level, quite simply, nothing like it exists. Check out our
exclusive ECTS'2000 footage of the title.
