I picked up the demo at fileplanet, and it outright plain sucks wastewater.
Pros: It has Guns Good Audio.
Cons: The guns suck. Dumb AI Bad models Even stupider missions The movie clips inserted are has high a quality as a 1x1 pixel movie enlarged full screen. Graphic requirements suck. No ragdoll
When I first saw these models, I thought, "Holy shit someone decided to make a pong mod." So when I begin killing bugs, they don't even have god damn ragdolls. >.< I noticed one thing: Floating Limb Syndrome. When yo blow off a limb of the bug, sometimes it freezes in mid-air. Regardless, I stopped playing half-way through.
Don't spend all night downloading this piece of horsedung. Get porn instead.
SS Troops for PC is one of the biggest spots of semen on the wall I have ever seen-- total shit.
Not only shouldn't you waste your time and money to purchase the game, don't even waste your bandwidth in downloading the demo!
I wouldn't even consider the guns as a pro if they suck so horribly. The rifle appears to shoot live ammunition, yet it automatically replinishes itself as if they were bolts of energy. As I recall, it was live ammunition in the movie.
The cut scenes are a poor excuse for the developer to not create their own 3d cinematics; they'd rather save on money than make a something of quality. To speak of which, the game overall is cheaply done.
With graphics from computer games becoming increasingly more competitive, SS Troopers for PC falls far behind. Few options for graphics, sound, and controls. The textures, models, and physics are poorly done.
I quit the game early in the first mission. The difficulty option is either "Easy" or "Hard," but both seem just the same with either one you choose.
Gah... there's just so much wrong with it... that's my two cents, folks... I'm done with SS Troopers...
I just downloaded this demo...and everything said about it is correct: it's TERRIBLE.
A machine-gun with infinite ammo? Slow-firing rockets that barely even make an explosion? No crouch or run key? Auto-regeneration life? Bad military plans? Bad graphics? Bad cinematics? Bad battles?
It...UGH! After half an hour, I just let myself be killed and deleted the game. Is it bad that MODS for games to make it LOOK like Starship Troopers are BETTER than the game MADE for Starship Troopers?
I too got suckered into the demo. I've got a solid machine here but jacked up it was choppy as shit...and the bugs only show bullet holes once they're dead...that was aggravating...empty a clip into them...pause...then they fall over riddled with holes. Blows...goats.
I thought it was ok. Dont complain about a games graphics, bad graphics do not make a game bad. It might be stuttery beacuse u need a better graphics card. But yes the ai is dumb, but its just a demo, the game does not come out until like nov
ive played the demo and it IS fun, the infinite ammo gun only works on the weak bugs cus it doesnt have armor piecing rounds it looks like crap cus the high-rez textures arnt in the demo (to save room) the grenades and explosions have been improved for release (look in the official forums) also it runs like crap cus it isnt optimized yet so theres still alot of ineffiecient programming
and as for the regen health, try playing it on hard and see how long u last if u get surrounded and remember halo has regen health and no one complaines
What a minute. . . I saw the name of this thread thinking this was some sort of discussion for coming up with ideas for a ST video game. I had no clue there actually was one. . . well, I wouldn't even have bothered with the demo anyway.
ok, u get your CPU to calculate the physics of 300, 4 legged warrior bugs, being shot at, blown up and vapourized we run PCs not the earth simulator supercomputer also alot of stuff was taking out of the game to keep the file size down for downloading and of course game isnt finished yet, still 2 months of development left
