The bloodiest and sickest FPS to date!

The Good

This game is certainly different than majority of FPS games. It has got a very special atmosphere. It is dark and sick and yet humorous at the same time. Especially the level design is way better than in other BUILD games (Duke Nukem and Shadow Warrior). The weapons are also good - you can for example use hairspray as a flamethrower, and if you want, you can set the spray can in fire and use it as a grenade (don't try that at home).

The graphics are very good for a sprite based game and the sound is excellent. Especially the comments from the main character are great... he is a very very sick man, and comments are stolen from famous horror movies and old boardway songs.

The game features very large amounts of blood and gore - using a zombie head as a football is one of those, and you can set enemies in fire - they'll start running around and screaming.

The difficulty levels are well balanced, easiest levels are very easy and the hardest offer almost impossible challenge.

The Bad

Well, the game itself is just great... but... the bosses, especially the final boss, are quite dissapointing. Also, the game has very many bugs, don't even try playing without updating to the newest version (note, UK version can't be updated) - and even after that it may crash constantly on fast computers (at least on my computer). Save often and in at least two different slots!

The Bottom Line

Very very bloody, but imaginative and great FPS. If you don't have it, go get it.
