    I like how the level editor seems to be the strongest point about this title so far...

    Game's finally out. Didn't notice though because I wasn't really looking for it. If anyone's bought it, be sure to post your opinion.

    It's been out since the beginning of the month. And even with the 1.02 patch, it's still

    doesn't get any better at episode 2 either. It has some of the worst physics and worst levels i've ever played in a FPS. Hard to believe it averages 70 in review scores, pretentious nostalgia pandering I guess.


    Wait for a sale so you can cry over burning less amounts of money.

    and for the netplay, FYI it uses Raknet which sucks - and the multiplayers' dead already.

    What didn't you like about the levels? The physics? Can you be more descriptive?

    I wonder what people were expecting from this. Are the game speed and FOV as screwed up as they are in the videos posted here?

    THIS IS NOT UT. SO, THEREFORE, IT IS TERRIBLE.

    You can't walk. Player acceleration is too low and movement speed is forced high. AI are practically aimbots. It's like Chrome all over again. Jumping over moving GADs is truly a bitch of fake difficulty.

    Independently developed games are supposed to have an advantage of refined 'non-corporate' gameplay. This is not the case for ROTT. This only just makes me appreciate those big budgeted cookie cutters more.

    Also, how the hell does a 2013 game.....with a much longer development cycle...... have less features and worse gameplay than a 1994 game? It overall feels forced and pretentious. You know it when there's that "99% OF THE DEVELOPMENT TEAM WERE LESS THAN THE AGE OF 10 WHEN THE ORIGINAL ROTT RELEASED" fact on the loading screen.

    Its a low-budget remake of a 20 year old game in the vein of classic fps. What were you expecting?

    "Classic fps" games had area-closing checkpoints instead of saves? I'm not going all RosetintedGoggles on it - even if it weren't riding on top of a 1994 game franchise it would still be a bad game. This is no Deus Ex Human Revolution.

    Also it uses a full UnrealEngine3 license instead of UDK, so surely the budget was large enough to do that...
