worth a dl if you want to play unreal tournament 2005.

there's nothing here that really hasn't been done before.

the weapons seem really weak, it's hard to actually "hit" enemies(the hit detection needs adjustment imo), the netcode was great(which is a testament to the unreal netcode) the musical score is standard fare along with the sound effects, the physics aren't impressive, the maps are nothing special and basically I WASN'T HAVING FUN!

i mean, it just didn't feel fun to me to actually play anymore. everything just feels "blah".

it's yet another boring "futuristic shooter" from digital extremes.

they really, really need to do something different. it's getting old fast.

demo 5/10.

I can feel your pain Damien_Azreal...

the First person shooter is in your Blood and it really sucks when some developers inject into your blood some bad bad FPS games!

I don't understand why those games get ported to PC, the developers are obviously catering for the lowest common denominator* (consoles, PS2 especially) so what do the developers hope to achieve by porting it to PC? I mean profit from PC games is already way too little and the PC market is over saturated with FPS games, most of which stand head and shoulders above these cookie cutter multiplatform ones...

* The highlight of this Pariah game is supposed to be the extremely simple to use level editor which is being released with the game for the consoles. A first for the console crowd! http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/doh.gif

It's being co-developed for the PC (no port). DE think it can stand on its own apparently.

I was referring to multiplatform development in general actually. They will always develop the game having to take the weakest console's limitations into account.

After playing it, that's how I felt. The worst of both worlds, IMO. Doesn't have the fast-paced fun of UT or the viceral thrill of killing of Tribes.

Awful technical flaws too, visual oddities galore and I wasn't the only one. I'm tired of publishers releasing a beta and calling it a demo.

Felt like Unreal 2 without the fun. And considering Unreal 2 wasn't much fun to begin with, Pariah now falls under my mental bargain bin. I'll bother with it once it's 20 bucks.

Any word on a single player demo anytime?

I saw a mag at the store that advertised a Pariah demo. But it didn't say it was a multiplayer or single. I didn't pick it up, but I am curious.

That's what I was hoping to see as well. The MP portion lacked spirit, but that hasn't turned me off from the game altogether.

The sense of style is there, the architecture is neat and the tech is superb. The CTF map with wind effects on the trees and leaves of grass was very cool, as was the vehicle code.

Bring on the SP demo!

There's an Xbox SP demo of Pariah out. I can give you impressions of that, since it will be the same game.
Anybody remember Breed? It came out a year or so ago.
Well, Pariah is exactly like that. But with unintuitive controls (for the Xbox, anyway).

Aww, you counted http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif There actually ARE two of us who still express their anticipation regarding the SP portion of the game.

From the looks of it, this game is teetering between Unreal 2 and Chrome. That's not a good place to be. http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Oh well, we'll soon find out.

Full version Review at Gamespot (http://www.gamespot.com/pc/action/pariah/index.html?tag=mp_2to9)


The game simply can't make the act of firing a weapon interesting, and this plagues every mode in it.



....While the backdrop may still have some life left in it, Pariah's combat, story, and weapons loadout are all positively lifeless, making the game feel like nothing more than an also-ran shooter that barely stands on its own, let alone stands up to the genre's best...



Score: 6.3




Shit

I had this wierd white texture almost on every surface when I played, so I can't say it looked good. Can't say I enjoyed the demo overall either. It still felt like the same thing we've seen the past 10 years all over again... Which also has been done better.

Anyone tried the SP demo? The menu is completely black, can't see a thing.

I seriously can't be arsed to update drivers.

The game works for me, full version.

Then again, I had to turn the effects on the lowest setting for it to actually work.

The editor doesn't even work at all.

Damien_Azreal

I bought and ran through this game a long time ago, it's fun... but the story is shit, gameplay is rather average... and enemy AI is dumb as hell.

But I haven't tried it in a long time, mostly because it uses StarForce.

I have the same problem with the full game. At least I had it on my old machine, never tried it on this one. I heard the sound, could access menus but the screen was black. With the editor I could enter mp maps and play in them but I never figured out why it didn't run properly.
