  • Greed - Black Border

    This kind of genre is certainly one of the most represented in the whole specter of games. Action shooting games and RPG too, is definitely almost everywhere to find. But the genre is complicated, or better yet there is a problem with this kind of games as a game with good quality is rare to find. Greed – Black Border fits in the description of those games, but not the ones with some real good stuff inside of them. The story of the game is set in the future, as a strange material called Ikarium enabled human race to develop at enormous speed making them travel to the stars. Humans colonized five different planets and they suddenly don’t get along anymore. The reason is simple, lack of Ikarium. As the planets are on a brake of war, you decide it is time to go solo and search for Ikarium by yourself. As for the story, there is no further mentioning of it. The story was explained on the beginning of the game, and that is it. When you start the game campaign there is no story involvement, as the games character isn’t mentioned anymore, in fact the player can be anybody, from anywhere. You only know you are dealing with some insect-like aliens. There is however a possibility in choosing what type of character do you want to use in the game: pyro-fighters (with short-range fire attacks), marines (with medium-range machine gun attacks), and plasma-engineers (with long-range plasma attacks). Each character has specials weapons and specials skills unique for themselves in the game, but the gameplay is the same no matter with which player do you play. Skills in the game are divided into three categories: active skills (such as frag grenades and smoke bombs) which require energy to use, passive defensive skills (such as absorbing energy from downed enemies), and passive offensive skills (such as allowing your shots to pass through enemies). You can use one passive skill at a time, and switching between them is easy using a hotkey on the keyboard. When you get to a new level with your character, you are given two points that you can use to upgrade your energy, health or shield. You also get a point that you can add to your skills, but it doesn’t make much of a difference. There are five levels to upgrade your skills. For an example a special skill of one of the weapons, on the first level it has the efficiency of 30%, while the fifth level has the efficiency of 37%. Not much of a difference… As for the gameplay of the game you won’t find that the game is something especially long, as it will be done in less than a day. The game doesn’t offer any signs of being able to replay the game, with its not so well done game core. What will probably bother you most with this game is when you start killing all the zombies in the game, you will notice it takes a while to kill them, and they will just keep coming, but what is really strange is that they are all like twins. If there were only a couple of specials missions in the game, that will require from you special tactics appliance, and that kind of stuff, it would be much better. The game offers a couple of mini-games that are connected to the game, like cutting through a wall so you can advance through a ventilation duct, figuring out the code to a safe, and dodging around lasers and tentacles. Somewhere about 50% of the game you will notice that there are no more mini-games, and for what reason, I don’t know… What the biggest surprise in the game is definitely the controls of the character. Firing and moving of the character is all done through the mouse. You run and move through the mouse, and when you need to shot, you must stop and activate the shooting mode to use the weapons and skills. The things that are good about this game are definitely the graphics of the game, and the stability. The graphics is done amazingly well, but shown not in the best way, as it could. As for the stability of the game, game crashes are possible as with any game, but with this one, highly unlikely. The game engines are done so well it’s pretty amazing. If you want further details about the game, download the demo and see for yourself whether you like it or not.
