GF best viewed w/ pants off
23rd February 2004
A very fun demo, some bugs (only 80% finished) but entertaining none the less. http://download.filefront.com/3065147;14d9de81574ed72322a22b2fdf44cacb49ed08e1076697ab86b977750d937d3d6b77c92eab2a4a23 I've tried to beat the level 15 times, but its hard! Can anyone beat it? if so maybe you have some tips?
I've beat it twice on easy. Normal and hard the germans just send mor tanks it gets to hard for me. I successfully captured the panther and that early tiger though. they are the key to this map usually. You dont have to get both at the same time though. I suggest anyone woh hasnt palyed it dl it and read the readme then try it on easy. its so open ended its a blast. Th key to my victories is keeping all three guys alive and making sure that one guy always has a bazooka ready.
The AI really, really sucks.
You have to take direct control of anything you want done properly.
I get the car to evacuate the colonel, AND IT DRIVES RIGHT PAST THE FRONT LINE! AH DOI, TWO TANKS SHOOTING IT OUT NOT VERY SMART!
I was going to restart it, but I was so fucking pissed off from that retarded AI and the fact that you can't save I just closed it.
If you could save the immesurably stupid fucking AI would be much more bearable. But NOOOOO, you can't save.
It's sad, this game looks like it could be fun, but that fucking God damn AI sent me off on a tizzy.
Yeah, the AI is great :rolleyes:. German with no ammo guns right into the heat of battle and stops there. An american soldier stops right next to him; he also has no ammo. They just stand there for like 30 seconds when a sherman tank blows them both up.
I like the general idea of the game though, but it's kinda hard.
Yeh the AI needs to be fixed, but it is a very nice game, I may buy it. Nice physics.
Actually, I was quite impressed by the demo myself.
It was kinda tough understanding the gameplay offcourse, but once you get to know the ropes it becomes extremely fun. This game is a mixed version of Commandos and Blitzkrieg, that's what makes it so damned fantastic. I got frustrated a few times in the beginning, but you gotta find the dropped equipment first.
The bad AI sometimes came of good use, it was kinda like cheating. For example, once a tank has pinned everyone down, you just need to get out of it's sight and it'll remain sitting there, which allows you to attack it from the rear. But I thought it was great how the enemies actually run after you once you hide, they actually drive around obstacles and come and get you, or even shoot through wrecked buildings. I never met anything heavier than the Panther though, I heard there were TigerII's coming eventually? lol..
Anyway, you can easily beat the game within a minute, or at least it's primairy objective. Theres a car somewhere on the middle left of the map, in a garage. Quickly take it and you can escort the Colonel. Rids you of that problem. You need to get some equipment from the parachuted crates, there are two of them around the house in the bottom middle. They contain bazooka's, tank rounds, mines (which you really need to use against the tanks and infantry), and lots of ammo.
By pressing x you can view equipment from vehicles, people and objects, for example the repair kit in the Sherman. You need to drag the kit to the soldiers hand, not the backpack (those are the squared boxes) but actually drag it into the soldiers picture. Same with fuel. You can also repair enemy armour, if you didn't blow it up, just fix it and drive that Panther up the road.. ;)
I can't wait for the full game.
This is one tough cookie, and I think the AI makes it that much harder....not forgeting that the axis have a Panther.
But I like the overall Idea of the game, sure there could be a few tweaks but I think its not so bad. However, I like Codename: PANZERS just as much.
Now I just need to find the fuel :uhm:
Grease, add me to MSN and I will explain it all to you if you want.
The AI does need to be tweaked but the devs of the game are on there forums alot and people have already mentioned that. I really like the demo since it is opene-ended on the ways to beat it. I have not once used those mines and done fine.
Also remember that you can take the gas can off of the Sherman (you have to put it into the soldiers hands not inventory) and steal the gas of the tanks you destroyed (not completely - if it explodes - no fuel). You click on the downed tank, wait till you fill up the can and then click on your tank. I played it on easy, the Panther is the biggest problem but you have to sneak up on the rear and blast him. I wanted to repair it and take it but there were enemies in the buildings and when I killed them the Nebelwerfers had already come. Nice game though...
