Just bought this on sale for 2.74. That's less than 75 cents for each game
You get the 2 Rise of the Triad games and 2 Blake Stone games.
Both excellent, unique and innovative games in their own respect.
Great music and sound effects as well. The sounds that happen when you pick up items or when you fire a gun, or an enemy barks at you,... never ceases to surprise me.
It's never what you'd expect.
So much old school run and gun fun.
And that old school humor too.
I totally forgot about the death animations in Rise of the Triad!
Those were so great! Made you excited to die just to see the animation play out.
If you've never played Blake Stone before, just remember this., not all scientists are bad. Just try talking to them, sometimes they're worth listening to.
(sometimes they just need a bullet in the face though too..)
Practically all the negative reviews on this game are about the control scheme using the arrow keys instead of the WASD.
Well sorry, but old games didn't use WASD. The only reason WASD was invented is to make it easier to use the mouse. And back when these games were made, people didn't use mice to play games. These games were not designed to be used with a mouse.
So be warned before you buy.
You can use a mouse on Rise of the Triad. But it's not ideal.
It's never going to be ideal.. no matter how much you wish somebody would spend the time to make it possible for a mouse to be ideal when playing these games....no matter how much you fiddle with the controls....
They were simply just never designed with mice in mind.
So either get used to the old way of the FPS, or suffer.
People like myself who grew up through this evolution shouldn't have much of a problem going back.
It's like riding a bike. Once you get your fingers on those arrow keys it will all come back to you.
Arrow Keys to move, Control key to shoot, alt to strafe, hold shift to run. That's basically all you need to know other than space to open doors.
Now, stop your ♥♥♥♥♥in, get out there, shoot some bad guys and pick up some loot.
