Reviews for Abomination in Strategy for PC-Personal Computer ( PC ) :
Excellent game, this is one of the best action/strategy games I have ever played. It has an excellent mood, very dark and visceral. It has a bit of a learning curve(my friends all claim it did, anyway)but anyone familiar with Syndicate or Synicate Wars will have no problem with it. It has an amazingly well developed plot line, when you consider that everything is randomized(hell, a great plot line for any game).
My God!! Where do I begin with gameplay?? First off, the character interface is simplistic, but hard to use. It makes it very difficult to control the 4 characters individually during missions. Second, the computer bots seem to have two settings,so dumb they cant respond, or impossible to get a shot off at them befroe you get iced.
With all the hot keys to memorize...the game becomes even more difficult to control. You cant effectively respond quick enough to a threat, and this makes for dead teammates. If you dont do everything in group mode, you wont do well at all. This makes the game even worse, seeing how an effective crossfire would be nice every now and then.
In short, the gameplay is horrible. Your characters miss more often than they hit, and trying to respond with area effect weapons will damage your teammates that run into the fire without stopping!! Good God, this game is horrible
Hey Everyone remember the Xcom series?? Those games had great gameplay. What a godd series!!
Unfortunately...it seems the developers of Abomination loved those games so much, they modeled the graphics after them. The objects lack a level of detail that could otherwise save this poor game. The characters are very pixely, and have barely any detail to them at all. Even the explosions look fake!!
This game has the quality of 256 color graphics at best. The funny thing is, with all those horrible graphics, out of the box the game has many issues with Video cards.
Its hard to explain how bad it is without showing it to someone. But, have you ever played The old Commodore 64 version of Pirates? Or have you played The very first Command and Conquer on the playstation? Id rate the graphics around there
The sound quality is actually pretty good.
When you shoot enemies, they make pretty disgusting gurgling sounds. The gunfire sounds pretty authentic too.
I have one major issue with the sound in the game, no music. They play these pretty cool techno tracks while the mission is loading, but when you start playing...theres no music. I know....theres no music in real life during a battle, but this is a game. Some cool "kick ass" music would have made this poor game rate at the mediocre level.
