"Revolution" можно порекомендовать всем любителям FPS. Это далеко не шедевр, но вполне качественно сделанная игра. Так что вполне можно заняться ее прохождением в свободное от других single-FPS-релизов время.

It's not hard to consider Revolution a lower than medium FPS if we forget about the multiplayer. On one hand you sometimes get excellent music and graphics but on the other hand the AI is very weak, the interaction with the level is minimal and there is no reason whatsoever to determine you to finish the single-player.

Если стены вашей комнаты обклеены постерами с изображениями сцен из Opposing Force, а на двери краской намалевано «Half-Life — rulezzzzz!», — значит с Revolution надо познакомиться. При всей своей занудности она имеет право именоваться крепким середнячком рода Half-Life.

For $19.99, you probably don’t expect perfection, but you do expect the game to work. The most obvious “cut corner” in rushing Revolution to market is the lack of play-testing, as evidenced by a major bug that makes it impossible to get past a level several missions into the game unless you’ve installed the version 1.1 patch. What’s more, the patch isn’t compatible with any of your previously saved games. Lucky us! But even patched and bargain-priced, Revolution pales before most of its shooter brethren. The graphics have more faces than Sybil — they’re gorgeous when set in the halls of “The Corporation” (da-dah-DUM!) but lifeless and dull elsewhere. Voiceovers have been localized from the native Romanian, but the text captions don’t always match. Deathmatch and CTF modes round out the multiplay, yet even over GameSpy’s free service, nobody’s playing. This Revolution should not have been computerized.

Ce jeu se résume à une chose : de grandes promenades dans des couloirs qui se ressemblent tous. On actionne des leviers sans connaître leurs effets, résultat on tourne en rond. Le scénario est sans intérêt, la réalisation est très moyenne et le comble c'est que les commandes ne répondent pas au doigt et à l'oeil. C'est très gênant lors des phases de plates-formes qui deviennent un vrai calvaire. Bref, ce FPS est à oublier.

Man nehme ein Blade Runner-Endzeit-Szenario (erschöpfte Rohstoffe; düstere Stadt; übermächtige "Corporation"), rühre eine Prise Story des Schwarzenegger-Streifens The Sixth Day ein (ethische Bedenken gegen Gentechnik), bediene sich kräftig bei der Ego-Shooter-Koryphäe Half-Life (abgekupferte Waffen wie Brecheisen oder Armbrust; ähnliches, aber ungleich schlechteres Leveldesign) und schon hat man ein tolles Spiel. Falsch gedacht, liebe Entwickler, Revolution ist nämlich wirklich nicht toll.
Top this all off with a healthy dose of shoddy controls (strafing moves you in large steps that make aiming a challenge), enemies that move way too quickly (exacerbating the problem), a bug that makes finishing one of the levels impossible (a patch was released, but it hoses your previous saved games), and multiplayer features that will go unused (go ahead—try and find a server for Revolution...l dare you!), and you have a game that fails to live up to even the generally un-lofty standards that budget software normally aspires to.

We won't spoil Revolution's ending for you. Not because we wouldn't like to, but because after playing the final level three times, we're still not clear on what happened. Revolution's story problems, generic visuals, and tedious single-player game may not matter, though, because you can play deathmatch, team deathmatch, or capture the flag over the Internet--at least theoretically. A few weeks after its release, there isn't even one server running Revolution.
While the game shows occasional signs that it might have some potential with a lot more work, the bottom-line is that it is not really enjoyable in its current state. It might be a budget title, but that's not an excuse to release such a mess of a game. What price would you place on spending your leisure time in a confused state of frustration? In The End, This Game Hath Been Rated: 20%. It plays like a pre-alpha build that needs a lot of work before being worthy of your money ... any of your money.
