a FPS where you shoot and kill waves of *Zed's and make your way through to finally kill the allmighty paitriark.
-whether you wanna go alone or kill as a squad -you can do that
-play on "beginner" or "hell on earth" difficulty -you can do that
-attack with a Claymore(sword) or snipe from a distance -you can do that
-play the game as an objective or as a simple wave by wave game -you can do that also.
This game allows each gamer to find thier specialty in attacking style. for example.I prefer to be a sharpshooter,snipe and kill the stronger opponents whereas someone may like to be a berserker and knock off all the weaker mutants with a fire fighter axe.
so how do you find your specialty?
well the game has pretty much sorted that out for you, all you have to do is try out the different classes that the game has prepared for you.
The classes ("perks" as shown in game) you can choose from are:
: specilist in melee fighting and can't be grabbed by *Clots.(will explain enemys later in this review) to level up as a Beserker you must use a melee weapon and select "Berserker" as your perk. If you do not choose to select the perk, you will not recive the weapon damage bonus for melee weapons.These "weapon damage bonus's" will increase your chance of leveling up and make it easier.
as a berserker you must be able to takel things head on!
: is an assult weapon specialist that can see cloaked stalkers from four meters away.To level up as a Comando you must kill *Stalkers with a Bullpup(cheapest comando gun),deal more and more damage over time with the Bullpup and select "Comando" as your perk so you can have the "weapon damage bonus".
as a commando you need to be in the frontline and be ready for anything!
: is an SMG specilist that also has the ability to heal thier fellow team mates(if you are in a squad),otherwise they can also throw health grenades to make a mist which can heal them an effect Zed's.To level up as a FieldMedic you must heal your team mates,the amount you need to heal them will increass through each perk level.and like other classes its best to select the "FieldMedic" perk so you get the "weapon damage bonus" or in this case a "healing bonus".
as a FieldMedic you are not only responsable for the life of your self but the life of others and will be relied on by many!
: is a pyrotecniks specilist that are resistant to fire,so if you incounter a Husk as a Firebug you will have no problem.To level up as a Firebug you must deal damage with a flamethrower, this will increass for each level you gain and to get that "weapon damage bonus" make sure you pick the "Firebug" perk.
as a Firebug you must be willing to set fire or explode anything that trys to approch your squad(or just you)!
NOTE:I have found that Firebugs are incredable useful against the Patriark.setting fire to a *Patriark will allow you to see him even when he is cloaked.
: is a specialist of rifles,pistols and the crossbow. The Sharpshooter also has a higher headshot bonus than other perks, with this you can kill a *Husk,*Skrake,*Bloat,*Gorefast and *Clot in one shot to the head.Bloats and Gorefast can sometimes wander around with thier head shot off,so be careful.Sometimes if your lucky you can kill a Fleashpound in three shots to the head.And make sure you select "Sharpshooter as your perk other wise you might not be abel to 1-shot those big guys(*Husk,*Skrake,*Bloat).
as a Sharpshooter you must scope out the area(litrally) for any threats to your team and get them before they get you!
- SUPPORT SPECIALIST
:Specializez in Shotguns and door welding.As a SupportSpecialist, shotguns do more damage and welding/unwelding becomes more faster for each level you gain. thier name really is what a Support specialist is/does.Without one you would probably not go so well, with them you are able to open/close-of doors and genrally be there to save the day.Ofcoarse to have these good skills you must select your "SupportSpecialist" perk.
As a SupportSpecialist you must be there to fully support your team!
: (have not been this perk soz) i think they go boom
Zed's,Zombies,Mutants, whaever you want to call them are specimens from experimenting gone wrong.Most KF gamers refer to them a Zed's,not just because thats what the makers named them but because "Zed" is a short simple way of saying Zombie/s.
so what kind of Zed's are there?
CLOTS: are the easiest of the Zed's you encounter in the game, they dont have much of a speciality but hug you to death.
GOREFAST: easily annoyed, these Zed's will speedily shuffel thier way towards you as they attempt to slash you with thier surgicaly attatched machette.so keep your distance!
BLOAT:these Zed's have a slow waddle but dont underesstimate the distance you can be from them because their acidic vomit can jump out at you at any time and do quite a bit of damge to your health.
STALKER: Stalkers have the tendancy to sneak up on you and claw at you. alltho they can cloak(go invisable) you can still see the movement of a glass like figure,and dont worry if you can see them because they are probably right behind you.
CRAWLER:when I say "spider-man" you probably think of the superhero that roams the streets swinging from a web saving lives in his tight outfif,but trust me, this "spider-man" is not the friendly type.usually falling from the sky/ceiling, these creepy crawlies will be leaping onto you befor you even knew you saw them.quite low to the ground and energetic these monsters are a pain to get rid of!
SIREN: take what you know about a police/firetruck/amblance siren,apply it to a girl on a talent show that can't sing and make her mutant, you will now have a Siren.This talented little migrain maker will have your screen shaking in pain as she approches you with her tornado of blood that rips from her lungs.But no need to prepare your pain killers,kill her quick and you wont be deaf....for the time being.
HUSK:if you'er not a pyroteknik or a pro, then you better step back,this flamethrowing freak will give you a tast of his rockets.This can leave you burning for a while unless you make quick evassive moves.
SKRAKE: If you see smoke in the distance it's mostlikely the psycopathic angry chainsaw mainiac getting ready to run at you and cut you like a cake and eat you like one too.you best chances of survival is probably to shoot him as a team or attempt him on your own.
FLESHPOUND: Hes not called "Fleshpound" for nothing. with the giagantic heavy metal spikey slabs for arms, you should probably just attack and hope for the best.
THE PATRIARK: the man that started it all and wanting to finish it. With his chain gun and rocket launcher you need to dodge every shot fired, if you get caught by his guns you can say "goodbye crule world" and be on your way.And dont think your team can simply go rapid fire and expect hime dead because ones he cloak(yes i goes invisable aswell) hes just gonna revive him self all peachy again. so if your attacking him, make sure its quick and strong.
WHAT I PERSONALY LIKE ABOUT KF:
-the community in game are just so welcoming to everyone, even the new-comers.
- the two differnt modes "killing floor" and "objective"
- the funny but perfect voice comands
- catchy soundtrack
- the steam workshop
- class/perk choice for ultimate shooting/choping/exploding/healing confort
over all I think this game is very unique for a FPS and deserves more appretiation than lots of games that tend to copy eachother, and has not to shabby visuals/display/graphics that even the slowest competer could probably handle. i think the only problem is when people use hacks/cheats to make themselfs better,but even then its still a great gaming experience!
WARNING: game may be to addictive and may consume most of your time!
