Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Mars, 2044. The UN establishes MARSCORP (Martian Security and Economics Committee) under the leadership of Samuel Longwood. In the years that follow, the UN gradually loses control of MARSCORP, mainly due to the non-transparent licence policy of its director. Longwood uses his autonomous status to create vassal relations between the corporations and MARSCORP. The unshakable power position of MARSCORP is supported by the companies and thus they acquire additional rights and licenses. Longwood and his consortium become extremely wealthy from this arrangement. However, dissenting voices in MARSCORP begin to challenge Samuel Longwood's authoritarian policy. They demand his dismissal as director and a complete redistribution of the mining rights.

But Samuel Longwood keeps an ace up his sleeve for occasions like this&

Chaser awakens on board the spaceship H.M.S. Majestic. He doesn't know who he is, what he's doing here, why he is being sought by men in black uniforms and what they will do to him when they find him&

The player's goal is to find out who Chaser really is and why he is being hunted. The story leads the player from the H.M.S. Majestic to Montack City on Earth, then on to Siberia and finally to Mars, where the trail ends and hopefully the truth can be found.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous for what it is 15 Oct 2003
By Danny
Verified Purchase
Yes, it's not the world's most intellectually stimulating fps, and won't win many awards for originality, but what it does, it does tremendously.
It's basically a film-noir thriller, with Blade-Runner esque overtones in both look and story.
You're John Chaser, 'a man of mystery' whose origins are unclear. He doesn't know why he's getting flashback visions or why there appear to be men chasing him in them.
All he knows is he's ended up on a spaceship with no clue as to how he got there.
The game's about finding out the truth, and blasting some bad dudes along the way.
At its core it's a very simple game - shoot bad guys, slap some bosses, carry out missions. But it's the depth to which it sucks you in that puts it a cut above most other fps's. It's extremely dependent on its story, and the cut scenes are very absorbing. You actually care about Chaser, which makes a change from characters simply being story facilitators.
The graphics are extremely good too - apocalyptic cities, Marsian landscapes, snow filled Russia and underwater subs are just some of the levels you'll go through. They look very atmospheric and suit the overall theme extremely well.
There are also no aliens here, which means all enemies seem quite credible for once. A few robots, sure, but nothing preposterous like Halo's ridiculous cannon-fodder.
Sound quality is excellent with crisp audio resonating. Its only issue is sound spacing is really appalling - move one inch in one direction and you can hear one thing, but then once inch in another direction it cuts out altogether and sounds totally unrealistic.
Another issue is graphic glitching - I experienced a couple of occasions where the graphics completely collapsed on me.

5.0 out of 5 stars good game, but loads of bugs 27 Sep 2004
By A Customer
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than expected... 5 July 2003
By B BOWEN
A word of warning to those who've bought Chaser soon after release - it won't install! But don't let that put you off, as an install patch is readily availble from [...] plus an update just a week on release.
It's a great game, with reasonably solid graphics and animation supplied by the CloakNT engine which produces some stunning scenes. The in-game introduction sequence is suprisingly well directed, its expansive environments and intercut dream sequences setting up the premise dramatically and the pace for the actual gameplay.
As shooters go, it's pretty solid and any boredom derived from edging around corners picking off grunts is put off by consistent AI (although it has to be said they're easily suprised) and good set pieces. Running around a futuristic city whilst an exploded spacestation you just managed to escape from plunges down in firey chunks, with buildings exploding and craft hovering overhead is pretty exciting.
However, as always, there are bad points. Although the graphics are pretty damn good, there are some poor textures in the environments and the human models, whilst extremely well animated, suffer from odd modelling and occasionally bad lip-synch.
The relentless action can become repetitive, but on the whole is well broken up, and to be honest there isn't really much to the gameplay other than shoot and guess the bad guys spawn points. The lack of a mantling feature (as in Unreal 2) and lean function can be frustrating, and the odd bit of poor level design does mean you can get stuck occasionally.
However, despite this Chaser beats (to my mind at least) recent shooters like the rather underwhelming Unreal 2 and the excellent NOLF2 in terms of cinematic verve and interesting plotline.

Never got to play the game. It wont runt in Windows 7. Tried compatibility mode etc but no go. This is an old game so I guess it's no surprise. Maybe you'll have better luck.
