[GameSpot] Necrovision Hands-On: The best WWI/vampire/demon shooter ever? eh!

The upcoming first-person shooter, Necrovision, combines World War I, vampires, and demonic powers. At least no one can ever accuse developer The Farm 51 of not being original.

At 1C Company's annual press event this week, we took a few minutes to step into the combat boots of a young American soldier, volunteering to join the British army for the adventure of a lifetime. And boy, did he find it. Soon after storming German bunkers and clearing out trenches while avoiding poisonous clouds of mustard gas, our hero witnessed a giant flaming skull floating in the sky. Similar in appearance to Lord Voldemort's dark mark in the Harry Potter films, the skull told us that our life is forfeit and our soul belongs to demons--or something to that effect. Soon, we were attacked by a fiery demon that hurled fireballs at us. Naturally, we shot our Lugar pistol at this supernatural monster and defeated it. It must be said, those Germans sure did know how to make a good Lugar.





This is not your great grandfather's World War I.

That ended our hands-on time with the game, but we did manage to pick up a few additional story elements. After defeating the Kaiser's wily band of Germans, our hero descends into the underworld where he must do battle against vampires. Only then, does he discover that it is the demons and their forces of darkness that are the true threat to human and vampirekind alike. Our hero discovers a demonic power glove and, naturally, assumes the powers of the demons and utilizes vampire technology to save the world.

Convoluted storyline aside, we did enjoy thrusting our bayonet into hoards of Germans. Along with the Lugar and traditional rifles, we used stick grenades and our firsts to pound through the Kaiser's forces. Later on, you'll unlock magical attack spells, do battle against large bosses, and solve simple puzzles. In one such puzzle, we were cut off from our friends by a malfunctioning electrical panel. We threw a grenade at it, the panel blew up, and we moved on.

If you're looking for something different later this year, you'll surely find it in Necrovision.

Go look at Crysis with DX10 Very High Settings and then with the DX9 Very High hack. They look identical, except for the DX10 version running slower. So what's the point? Just so you can slap DX10 on the box? And if you were to craft the game in DX10 mode, from bottom up, then you'd be alienating the majority of the gaming populace since most gamers don't have DX10 GPUs yet.

It can only look as real as the textures and models used. DX10 has nothing to do with that.

I think what most people are trying to say here is that it looks like 2005.

Yeah it does look a lot like the Oblivion engine to be honest with the HDR effect especially. Maybe a little more refined.
