A thrilling FPS experience which provides plenty of action, challenging gameplay and growing suspense as you progress.
You Sir (Or Madam), begin your adventure by spawning next to the standing stones. Unsure of what's happened, A voice explains to you that you need to collect some stones and return them back to where you are currently standing.
The problem facing the player is that these stones have been scattered randomly across the world and they are all well guarded by some deadly robot hunters. There isn't much explanation on why or how the robots got here, but one thing players learn very quickly when playing this game is that these robots only want you dead.
A world is made up of five islands: the centre is where you begin and has islands connected north, south, east and west. While the world is randomly generated at the start of the game, you can choose to have each island stick to a theme or bio dome and there are a few different bio domes to select from.
Some bio domes available are simple rural areas which provide plenty of long grass, bushes and some villages. Old Crumbling castles, Stone work and Tall Churches and my favourite The Industrial Bio Dome. Gloomy skies, Brick Mills and Huge abandoned factories.
The enviroments are well detailed, you wont see any bright and happy skies as the usual weather forecase is often overcast and cloudly. Accompanied by dark surroundings that constrast with a world of no electricty. However the coloured clouds by the sunset or sunrise in the mornings can often leave some incredible wallpaper worthy like pictures but they also enhance the feeling of being alone in the wilderness.
And while you may feel alone, There's always something out there to remind you that you're not.
The Robots have many different forms. Your average hunter robot smokes a pipe, carrys a rifle and looks left and right, while patroling his area. They will talk to other robots in their strange robotic voice, sometimes you can work out what they're saying too and its funny.
Early on the robots are found walking through the area, and you can always expect them to be near some fragements of the stones you are trying to collect. If you manage to snatch one of them and return it back to the standing stones where you spawned, You'll be a step closer to winning the game, but more advanced robots appear...
should you set one of these bots off They'll aim to chase you and find a good range to shoot you. Be aware, It will not take them long to take you down. The early robots may appear to be dumb for a while but 3 or 4 shots and you're dead.
It's also worth noting that taking damage you risk a chance to bleed, if you dont treat the wound asap you could possibly bleed out and eventually die very quickly. The sense of panic while trying to apply a bandage as well as having a robot chase you for a better shot is fun in its own way
Bleeding? Bandages? You'll need to carry some for a lot of 'just in case' scenarios so players will need to plunder houses, buildings and anything else that may contain loot. Because while you're looking for ammo for guns, tools to distract the robots or first aid. You'll need to look after you're vitality meter too. Fortunately this isn't too hard to look after, Simply keep this meter high up and you'll heal and have energy to run and jump. you'll start by eating dead rats, old eggs and maybe even cat food but over time you'll find more healthier things to maintain good vitality.
By the way, Try the mushrooms...
The best part of this game is the sense of flight or fight.
Sure you might have loads of ammo and you're good shot with your gun, but opening fire may alert robots near by and draw them closer. The other idea is using traps and devices to distract robots so you can walk past, loot a certain building or even take one of those special rocks to win the game. Ammo doesn't show up very often, so you will need to find alternatives to deal with robots if they stand in your way without drawing attention to yourself or resorting to violence.
Sir, you are being hunted provides many great moments where you will enjoy outwitting the robots for your own gain and frantic moments running like a fugitive and never looking behind you because it means death. The Vitality system makes the player remember the on going need for surivial but it isn't too difficult or complex and the variety of enemy robots deliver different types of AI and behaviour, they can be hilarious at times but in the right scenarios can be intimidating and sometimes even scary.
I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys FPS and enjoys the whole stealth approach and having their brains tested, Also use headphones with surround sound for the best experince.
