Activision's ShadowForce 'Razor Unit' Amazes - Screens

by Rainier on Feb. 4, 2002 @ 12:15 a.m. PST | Filed under News

Shawdowforce "Razor Unit" is a new First Person Shooter (FPS) from Activision Value. Usually the Value brand brings what it stands for ... budget games. A few days ago the demo got released and, being a big CS fan, I decided to give it a whirl. For a budget title it is pretty well done and has a promising multiplayer aspect with deathmatch, CTF and team deathmatch .. the demo only has 1 single player map and 2 multiplayer maps so limited playability, but what i saw simply kicks ass .. nice range of weapons, smooth play ... ill be getting this one as soon as i see it!
