Default Firewarrior

I am not sure if this is where to place this but I just got Firewarrior the game for PS2 and was wondering if any of you have oppinions on it. My boyfriend is monopolizing our PS3 so I need to build the anticipation while I wait to get my chance to use it.

Heh, I have the PS2 game and the novel. Amusing to say the least. It was alright, entertaining to say the least, if not a little buggy in some places. Also, strafing makes the characters look like they're ice skating side ways.

Can't help but feel that the game was a bit rushed though.. they could do better.

I had it for the PC and I enjoyed it. Not very fluffy in any sense, but still enjoyable. Had some fun multiplayer battles with it.

Off topic, where did you get your name from? There was a pretty big local band back in SF called Fate 13 and they were pretty good.

Put it on Hard or else you'll be really bored. It's a decent FPS for the PS2, I enjoyed it (years ago). I liked that you could pick up fallen weapons like Lasguns and Autoguns, Bolters and Rail Rifles...that was cool. I was disappointed that there was no level where you could pilot a Crisis Suit, that would've made the game for me.

But yeah, the game is pretty fun. Pretty much your standard FPS, hordes of enemies, a boss fight each level or so, cinematic cutscenes, etc.

Wouldn't you know it as soon as i put up the thread, the PS3 opens up. Murphy's law I guess or some lesser form of it. Anyways, I played the first few levels and honestly it was fun. I normally don't like FPS, but this one grabed my attention, though I am glad I only paid $5 for it. I agree that is feels a bit rushed, but for now I feel it is a solid FPS.

@ USAFTACP: as for fluff I am probably going to use this as a model for my own fluff for my shas'el and his trial by fire. I have a vague idea of what I want to do but had nothing to really reference, but now I do. As for my name, well I always tried to go by just Fate, but that was obviously always taken. So I added my lucky number to the end of it and got Fate13; so no I have no relation to this band you speek of.

@ xShaperx: Hard was locked when I started it, so I have to play through on normal at least once. I was really hoping to pilot an XV8, but you have crushed my dreams :'(. Anyways now that I have used a las-rifle I can see why the IG use them. Sure they may be week-arse weapons but enough laser shots thrown at anything will take it down. Also I was a little disapointed by the lack of difference between the pulse carbine and the pulse rifle in game. I was really hoping to be able to see something that set them apart. (with the exeption of the grenade launcher on the carbine)

it was good when it came out, but the likes of Halo, Fear 2 et al. trump it.
