Chaser is very strong graphicaly, but the story lacks the originality of other games.
I got this game quite a long time ago, not from amazon, for £15, if the reviews i'd read were true this would be a good buy.
They were, it was.
You play as John Chaser, and the game starts with you waking up on a space station. WOW. The graphics are ACE!!! The opening cutsence really shows of what the Cloak NT engine can do.
The problem is you need a fast computer to see them the propaly. And to play it the way its ment to be played(as nvida would say). The min' specs' for the game are 450MHz CPU, 128MB RAM, and 32MB of graphics, WAY TO LOW!!! I'd say you need at least, AT LEAST, 300MB RAM+, 2.6GHz CPU+, 128MB+ Geforce 4/ATI Radeon 9700 Ultra. As you can see its quite a high spec game.
Any way, though the story is not the best, it has some good plot twists. The levels are mostly good, appart from a few, where it will take you ages to find out what you have to do. The two levels that spring to mind are the underwater ones, AAARRGGGGHHHHHHH!!! I HATE THEM!! It took me 6 days to do them, no kidding.
Graphics-10/10 some lovly efects, textures and animation.
Phisics-5.5/10 some good barrel animation, but its all so scripped.
Weapons-8/10 most are based on real guns ect... they look quite real to.
Charactors-8/10 well animated some out of sync lips but generally good.
Plot-8/10 not the best, not very origanel, but still interesting.
Anmation-9.5/10 very good with almost no gliches hat so ever.
A.I.-8.3/10 good, but still enclined to stand and shoot, and then get shot back
Bug Count-A lot! lots of patches though, on [...] so do not dispair.
Score-8/10 an all round good game, but to many bugs. If they ha updated the phisics system to something like Havok and fixed the bugs it could have got 10/10. Oh well, we'll just have to wate for Chaser 2 ah.
