We are very interested in your opinion on our games and wish you tell us what you think about NecroVision. What are you waiting from this game?How do you like graphics, gameplay, sound, advantages, disadvantages and so on. Feel free to express your thoughts. :)

Hard to tell since we haven´t played it yet :)

Anyway, sounds like NecroVision is a Serious Sam/Painkiller type of game, and i personally love those kind of games!

So... i really hope it´ll be as good or even better than those two :)

What do you think about the game?

What can I say the game looks awsome :roll: But Q4 2008 is so far away...

Actually NecroVisioN has been announced for a very long time (2004-2005?) and it seemed for a long time that this game would never come out.

But thanks to CDV who became their publisher now the game is going to come out for good.

I think this game looks pretty good. I’m really looking forward to fighting the Germans ww1 style 8) I hope there’s a decent trench attack battle at the start before the zombie things get discovered :D

The only thing i dont like so far is the health bar, that green looks too tacky for me. But hey, if thats my only problem with this game then im sure its going to be pretty kick ass!

I would say from the videos it is too fast paced. Anything faster than Doom3 or FEAR I found unplayable (eg. Half Life 2). It does brain damage and prevents one from thinking/getting nervous/using timing. If the game has a setting that would allow it to run at 60% or 75% of the normal game speed I might be interested, though.

My system is: Amd athlonX2 4400+(dual core) 2.2ghz, 2GB RAM DDR400, 8800GT512MB. Will it have better graphics than Crysis? Crysis is the only game that my system can not run in full settings.

The release of NecroVisioN is planned for fall 2008, exact date will be announced soon.
Regarding your PC, NecroVisioN will definitely run on the mentioned configuration. The development team is still working on optimization of the game, so I cannot tell you the recommended hardware requirements nor how the game would run on your machine yet.

I'm not sure that the comparison with Crysis is the right one. These are actually different types of games. NecroVision is more action-oriented with lots of enemies. In the manner of Serious Sam or Painkiller.
The game should definitely run smooth on your PC.

Reading some comments makes me both fun and sick: Jeezus - "it's too fast", "i don't want zombies, only WW1 theme" - these must be some of the most hilarious comments i ever saw if knowing some basics that the game is based on a PAIN engine with ragdoll physics. ..:rolleyes:

Realy looking forward to this game, because i imagine what abilities this game will allow with PK/Havok engines, and the previously released Painkiller Overdose was a huge disapointment to me to say the least:rolleyes:, one of the bigest ever, so i hope this Necrovision game will place itself as the decent successor of Painkiller. And hell, looking so far i don't see any relations with Serios Sam, and that is good, cause the more it looks like Painkiller, the better. It should be a fsat paced FPS, concentrating just like PK in run and gun action with no BS crap.

Basicly 100 % of all who will play this game should have a taste of Painkiller, or you will be just blabering nonsence because of your lack of knowledge - like "it's too fast" - go play CS if it's too fast, it's not for the likes like you. :rolleyes:

Man i wish the PK communtiy would communicate with this one if the game turned into success.

My card is not suitable for games too heavy, but so far without the PhysX I also played Bioshock, Call of duty 4, Staker, even Crysis, of course, at least. Now the games can not be used without ...

Just played the french demo. Great game, but a little hard weapons to use in the start, also couldn't set the resolution to anything higher than 1280x1024, which looks pretty bad om my monitor that support 1920x1080.

I was impressed with the graphics so I know that'd like love to see more of the game. I can't tell anything abou thte story as the demo was short in that respect. I didn't try this but is it possible to switch the weapons I'm holding? If I have a shovel in my left hand and a gun in my right, I'd like to switch them cause I can press my left mouse button faster.

There was a very annoying issue that will prevent me from buying the game and that's the load time, it's totally unacceptable! When I played Crysis and Crysis Warhead, a very graphical and resource intense game, the load times were under 5 seconds and you have to at least match that.

02-17-2009, 08:51 PM
I forgot to add that in the demo for chapter 2, when I need to find dynamite, there's just not enough time and I was playing on easy mode. I would like another minute added. Also, why is there a time limit, I don't recall seeing any messages that said why there's an emergency for me to escape that place.

Hello,

I just tested the demo and i honnestly have never been more disappointed in my whole gamer life (i began with Xenon, BG and AOE, it's been quite a while since then).

The engine is just dramatically slow. I can run Crysis @ 1280x800 with all high settings with ~30 FPS, and i get exactly the same, with med settings and 1280x800 with Necrovision. Obviously, Crysis is "slightly" more beautiful.

I also have been extremely disappointed by the textures, they look like those in games released ~7 years ago. The game actually looks like a DirectX moh:aa laggy mod, not like a whole FPS.

I also disliked the gameplay, it's completely insane that kicking a zombie one meter away from you is more efficient than shooting his head with a gun.

Well, that's just my 2 cents, but i will neither buy it nor recommand it to anyone, sorry.

i am only on the third chapter but i must say i really like it. i think when the official reviews, by gamespot come out for example it will be put down for its absurdly silly story line, dialog, and the comments the character makes among other things, but the combat is great and that is whats important since its obviously the focus of the game. Great weapons, and i love the ability to dual wield different items with a pistol. Great visuals, gore/effects makes for an overall unsettling/creepy atmosphere which really complements the nature of the game. For an FPS, i think it is a very entertaining game and i look forward to finishing it!

another aspect of the game that really caught me by surprise is some of the ways you can interact with the environment. The solutions of issues are extremely common sense, but they manifest themselves in a way that it does NOT seem obvious in the game at all. For example, on the second chapter in the secret room in the hospital, i threw a grenade up onto the ledge toward the vampire collectable just out of curiosity and to my surprise the rope fell down, and i was then able to climb up and grab not only the fury increase, but a machine gun hahaa. When that happened it just blew my mind. There was no clue in the game that that rope could be severed and climbed(not flashing or glowing like in some games), you just had to use common sense and apply it to the situation at hand. Same goes for some of the blockaded doors that reveal secret rooms. You just have to use common sense and think that your guns/grenades can clear the wooden boards blocking it, although i was doubtful considering most games when presenting a similar situation would make it far more obvious that it could be destroyed, if it was possible in the game.

anyways, great game.

I actually found out why that happend.

After I beat the game I loaded a previous autosave game to look for more artifacts and then when I finished, it basicially over wrote my finished game save with the current save game that I loaded.

So in other words I should have just used the challenge mode replay level mode instead of the auto saves to back track for secret levels and artiafcts.

03-15-2009, 10:51 PM
Have almost finished it but here's my humble opinion ;-)

story: 5/10
Nazis gone bad? again? zombies? vampires? dragons? I'm an American? really?

combat: 8/10
Pretty solid but very tough at times, opponents who don't die unless you headshot them, even if they're perfectly human they crawl right back up!
Lots of stuff to fight with here:
plenty of weapons, dare I say too much :P
MIGHTY FOOT, oh how I missed thee!
headshots/sniper, woo!
gibbing!
shooting/slicing limbs off!
awesome slowmo effect if you're nearly dead!
bullettime!
Shadowhand/melee weapon makes for interesting combo's.
Love punching zombies into oblivion!
No bunnyhopping, missed chance I'd say, we have vampires and dragons, so bhopping would not have looked _that_ strange.
Launchpads (like the ones in the challenge with the 3 giants) work rather crappy, I bounce all over the place or go straight up, what's up with that?
Puzzles are okay, blow this up, use this rope, find this key, nothing too revolutionary but fun.

graphics: 8/10
German soldiers look generic and blocky, vampires and undead hordes are way better!
Surroundings look good, nice settings although they appear generic and copy pasted at times.
Mirror and blur effects are rather overdone but look good.
Is quite heavy on my 8800gts 320mb, 4gb RAM and 3,2ghz ic2d 6750 CPU. can't run it on max with 1280x1024 or it starts artifacting.

sound: 7/10
Good music and gun sounds.
Utterly TERRIBLE voice acting, sounds very cheesy at most if not all times.
Reading of the paper's text during map loading annoys the crap out of me.

AI: 6/10
Foes don't do more than attacking or camping.
I've seen foes been standing there staring in the distance or walking into objects.
Love the screaming zombies and vampire lizard things, give me the creeps xD

Conclusion: 7/10
Overall feels like a tough mix of painkiller/serious sam/wolfenstein, minus the bhopping and far smoother gameplay.
Plenty of singleplayer content, cutscenes and story. (although cheesy and generic at times)
Can't wait to try out the MP.

Things that need to be done imho:
-add bhopping!
-engine streamlining, looks awesome but is rather heavy on the 'puter (crysis anyone?)
-remove the sound during map loading or make it optional
-fix the launchpads

What could I say about game? It's look like it was relased about three years ago. Didn't fit to "our times". Very easy, even on max level of difficuilty, bad dubbing (actors who give voices did this totally without emotion), graphics is pretty, but I cant say that is stunning. Just pretty. Monsters arent scarry, their are funny on beginning, after one ours I want to cry for them, bevause they are stupid, not realistic... ech... like I said, this game could be good about 3 years ago. Now I know that this was bad Idea to buy it.

Well, I've not finished the game, but here is my opinion :

Story/background :

It rocks. Games speaking about the ww1 are rare, and the mix with hell is simply awesome. But an American hero is a bad choice imho, not very original.
8/10


Combat/gameplay :

Lots of weapon, an incredible combo system, a gameplay with two one-handed weapon, a fast paced fps (but sad for the bunny hop), just what I expected.
9/10


Graphics/technical aspects :

Good graphics, but a little too blury. Love the ambiant. Some framerate problems in some levels. About the loadings, they're a little too longer.
7/10


Sound :

Good sounds, nothing to say about that. BUT...but the voices are....specials :grin:
7/10


AI :

Don't mind. It's not Armed Assault or Swat 4, I don't care about that. Just some problems with the pathfinding imho.


Lasting Appeal :

Multiplayer seems to be not interesting, sad, painkiller was awesome in MP. Solo (campaign+challenges), in hard mode, seems to be long. I didn't finished it, but I'm pretty sure NecrovisioN is longer than actual fps. I paid the game 23€, so I'm satisfied.
8/10


Modability :

It's rare nowadays.
10/10


Conclusion :

Like zaggynl said(sorry, i've paste your sentence), the game feels like a tough mix of painkiller/serious sam/wolfenstein, minus the bhopping and far smoother gameplay. Sad for these two last points, but i'm overally satisfied.
Just what I expected. My favourite game since F.E.A.R. Sad that just a few people are interested by it. I really hope that the game will be Profitable for you.
9/10


Things that need to be done :

Add bunny hopping (please :))

For example, on the second chapter in the secret room in the hospital, i threw a grenade up onto the ledge toward the vampire collectable just out of curiosity and to my surprise the rope fell down, and i was then able to climb up and grab not only the fury increase, but a machine gun hahaa.

HAHAHAHAHA lol thanks you made my day I always wanted to know how to get that artifact.

I say this is the best FPS since 99 or 03 when Halo 1 came out the reason I say that Halo 1 was made for the PC(even if it was published on the Xbox) it was more open and better developed than the MS bastard children of Halo 2-3 and most modern shooters are devoid of exploration opting for full gun and run themes that are wholly bland and boring. Even bioshock and FO3 were heavily watered down from what it should have been into a safe and bland utterly rushed to market FPS wanna be RPG… it’s just most FPSs feel like they work on some core elements to rush it to market making it feel like nothing gets finished *rant rant rant*

Jericho was a nightmare and not in a good way…Clive Bakers undying was a excellent game so was call of cuthulu despite the issues they had. Quake 4 and Doom 3 are respective jokes D3 being much too small and too bland in level layouts, Quake 4 suffers from the same bland levels limited weapons and items…. Quake 2 is almost a master piece of gameplay… it’s nice to have a story but not at the cost of gameplay or fun…. Halo 1 is great but Halo 2 and Halo 3 felt simplified and rushed focusing far too much on its multilayer side letting the core game fall to the waste side….And don't get me started on unreal... the Half life series fared better but still feels like its missing something...


Before I start on Necrovision I have played a lot of the “Russian bloc”(apologies if that term is offensive) games Dark watch(I think was developed somewhere in Europe), Alpha Prime, Call of Juarez the games have a older feel tot eh design focus less about graphics and gun and run themes and more about quirky gameplay . I appreciate the pre modern FPS design focus even if they can get mired in it trying to keep up appearance small levels gun and run themes,ect.

Now on to Necrovision

Note: I love the use of on the fly loosely scripted one liners brings back memories of duke and Blood even if they badly used and sometimes sound like 2 different people….it’s just fun!! Also LOVE the exploration and secrets it’s nice to see them well used in a FPS game again….


What this game lacks is continuity checks and quality control, once you start fighting zombies and watch the story boards between chapters or any dialog between the main character and anything…. It becomes that much more clear but frankly who cares it just adds to the quirky B horror movie feel!
I mean if I wanted to nitpick the one liners the zombies put out are mostly reused lines from their living counter parts and that zombies care about being stabbed…. Also the phantom can be damaged by bullets but not anything else…. Quite annoying… I soooo wanted to shove a couple bayonets up its arse…

More nitpicking but on easier to fix things Pistol aim is a joke, I hate iron sights as is but it’s horrible maybe because its meant to be a short range weapon.

From some research I did of the Luger and colt .45 the luger is more accurate and powerful than a colt .45 but for the sake of gameplay we need a better difference the colt could be 50% more powerful but 30% less accurate and the Lugar could be more accurate but I like a solid perceivable difference in like weapons.. COJ drove me crazy with only a few weapons being any different.. that and the pistol is just much to weak…. It’s a frigging BB gun…. but I guess its meant to be used in combos not head shots from afar……. Though one of the pistols needs to be a more powerful…
Or another thought reduce all weapons by 30% damage wise and then stack it 10% for each vampieric artifact you find.

I am playing the game on hard mode and it’s too easy, I’d like a much slower heal rate maybe by a quarter of current speed or just have a toggle slider 100%-0% in 25% blocks and get rid of the weak slow mo allow the character to access the super slow mode by hitting adrenaline if you are out of adrenaline your dead if you take too much damage but if you have some of it remaining the normal adrenaline if burst will kick on when you take too much damage. Also instead of regeneration gaining health via combos might make the game all the better. A simple option to chose it and regeneration rate would be great as well as changing adrenaline slow speeds (turn the normal into the emergency burst without the damage protection) .
Bayonet/grenades really need less mass for collision its always sticking/bouncing off of a wall just by the character or where I am aiming it at. Also the character itself can get to close to a wall nullifying melee and kicks.

If there is any melee head shots they need better collision unless those where random combos I was pulling off…
Invisible walls are a no no in my book and are undeeded 99% of the time they are blatantly over used and just horrible in the4 The hill chapter, some barbed wire bits can’t be gotten over but can be if you use the terrain I think it’s better to place rubble+ on the outside of the map and use rubble+ barbed wire on the inside to make sure that obstacles are one way or simply un traversable.

The first part of the fortress has a roof top that’s unblocked until you start fighting bosses and then a invisible wall shows up..that’s quite annoying and undeeded……

Also it would be nice if you had a secret counter on the objectives list, also it would be really awesome if the levels replayed through the challenge room had teleportation spots so you can get past any and all one way blockages in a chapter and have full access to it without the of restarting a level to get back somewhere add in a lot of respawning zombies and what not for more fun to be had. Also put one in the middle of a level to take you to the end or the beginning of a chapter.

I need to play it more to get more ideas on what else the game could use to be great.

All in all Necrovision has good level design fun weapons and abilities and a AI built on keeping the player active wish there was a bit more stealth in the game but all in all this is a great action FPS and one of the better ones I have played on PC or the console in nary a decade!

Yeah, this game is incredibly fun. So much freedom and choice for how to approach most situations as far as the combat goes. The over the top voiceover and story is good fun aswell. Awesome and solid weapons. I felt the first couple of levels were a bit slow and annoying though. But chapter3 is the most amazing thing I've seen in a fps game in a long time. Fantastic.

We are very interested in your opinion on our games and wish you tell us what you think about NecroVision. What are you waiting from this game?How do you like graphics, gameplay, sound, advantages, disadvantages and so on. Feel free to express your thoughts. :)

Hello Everyone,

Just to post a quick reply and make it short and simple, NECROVISION is a nice shooter. :)

The graphics look AWESOME and it runs smooth on my rig/PC at all settings maxed, but I think the Frame Rate is capped at 60 fps ? Even the Voice acting is great.

OK. Now let's come to the gameplay aspect. To be honest the game is a little tough to beat on some levels. Too much melee combat has been added and that can be a bit odd for a First Person Shooter in my opinion.

But DON'T get me wrong in any way. I like this title and I'm enjoying every aspect of the gameplay, except the melee/combo part with which I'm sometimes uncomfortable.

But overall Necrovision is Awesome !

A big THANK YOU to the DEVs (1C/Farm 51). You guys deserve it. :grin:

Regards,
Daniel.

Dont know if its been mentioned or not, but someone other than myself must hate the American voice actor... From his half-assed southern accent, to the incredibly cheesy things he says and the way he presents himself, just seems, ridiculous.

I know 1C was trying to "make a funny" by poking fun at the american, errr I mean trying to bring back the duke nukem days, but theres no need to ruin the game in the process. I like the game, good fun arcade style, like it was mentioned before, Painkiller in a nutshell. But my dear Bob, I can only play the game with mute on. :(

The game reminds me of Blood back in 97 & 98. Those were the days where you could light zombies and cultists on fire and watch them burn in a fury.

Main character is likable despite being a christfag and social critic wannabe, but atleast his attempt at humor is itself laughable and likable, like watching a child trying to fit in his dirty scooter in a washing machine.

Simon isn't Caleb, J.C. Denton or Ash, but atleast his oxymoronic nature is the main source of humor.

This game was certainly worth my money, even despite the fact that I am still playing version 1.0 and I am still waiting for a patch on Steam.

In terms of storytelling, the game makes some good attempts at being Lovecraft fanfic, but we're not playing Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corner of the Earth.

Veriaty was one of the strong points of the game and the use of motion capture certainly made the game look professional. I just love fighting the vampires.

Agree.

You're supposed to be scaring me, so why try and make me laugh... wish it was possible to mute Simon's voice. In fact, 90% of the voice acting is pitiful... 'I am attacking!' 'I am attacking!' 'I am covering!' 'I am attacking!' 'I am covering!'I am attacking!' 'I am attacking!' 'I am attacking!' 'I am covering! 'I am attacking!' 'I am attacking!'

I get it. You're doing stuff.

Otherwise the game is great. Just wish devs had slowed it down and gone more Lovecraft, less Laughcrap.

I LOVE necrovision, I particularly love the corridor sections and the great satisfying effects and use of colors when things start to go kaboom!^^

It's really fun and you can be creative on how you wanna approach the enemies, so I was really satisfied with the close to medium distance combat. The long distance and clunky vehicle boss missions weren't my liked parts. But overall I loved the game and I hope more games like this come out with continual refinement.

oh yea the game might need to find a better way to manage weapons lol, I know there are a ton of weapons to use lol.

I'll be picking up Lost Company as soon as I can get some money.

Also just as with Cryostasis, when I get a good video editing program like vegas gonna try out making some fan trailers and spread the word about these games^^

Necrovision - great for when you want simple brain blasting fun

Cryostasis - Awesome slow paced combat that marinates along with a wonderful story^^

I just started collecting in 2011. Before 2011, I always used to either trade in or sell all of my consoles and games. Just last year, I only had about a dozen games. I wish I had all of my hundreds of games that I traded in throughout the years, some very rare ones, along with all of my consoles. I totally regret getting rid of all that stuff, so I have a no trade/sell policy now and just hold onto everything I buy.
