our hero once saved the planet from certain doom and said evil
has, yes you guessed it, come back for more. You play the game
from a Tomb Raider style Third Person Perspective and your job
is simple, stop the bug come large bear like alien beast from
taking over the planet, again. You start the game off in a small
village getting to know the population through walking around
and watching cut sequences as you interact with important characters
controls are a straight and simple combination of familiar and
smooth Mouse movements with some keyboard skills thrown in for
good measure. As the game uses the Quake3Arena engine you can
be quite sure that everything from camera positioning to smoothness
is perfection itself. You only need bind a few keys and tweak
the sensitivity just a little before everything is ready, simple.
out for the BUGS!
something about Fakk2 that feels so right, while walking around
the town you begin to evolve yourself into the character. If
you're a guy then that's a bit like becoming a virtual transsexual,
but don't worry it's not half as scary as they say it is =).
Sadly, as we are only too aware, game developers rarely let
you explore the picture perfect world before something goes
long after having explored and learned to understand the characters,
disaster strikes. Suddenly a strange swarm of killer insects
is upon the town and before long you're performing all kinds
of Lara kicking Acrobatic stunts and sword swipes. It's at this
point you realise that perhaps the game has a bit of a steep
learning curve, there are some areas where no matter what you
do, you'll invariably get hurt. For example, having dispatched
one horde of insects we rapidly grabbed a poll and started to
shimmy over the roof to the adjacent building. Half way across
another swarm started to attack knocking us down several floors
to a stone ground, ouch.
