Summary: Considering Afterfall is a game that I had never heard of and had zero expectations for I can't help being impressed. Despite some animation/voice acting shortcomings (visual/sound design are excellent) I loved the the first half of the game; a mix of Dead Space (gameplay and sound design) with the visual aesthetics of Fallout, Metro 2033, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., etc.
Summary: Even in the new "Extended Edition", Afterfall: Insanity fails to deliver a satisfying gaming experience in nearly every way. The graphics are not that bad, but the clumsy controls, catastrophic animations and horrible localization result in a frustrating and disappointing experience. Avoid this game at any cost unless you are prepared to face one of the best examples how to not make a good game.
Summary: This game is a poor man's Resident Evil 5/Dead Space/Silent Hill, but with greatly inferior quality of storytelling and game design. Graphics is actually quite decent, at least above average for UE3 budget titles. But, there is, like 10 minutes of intriguing introduction, then 5 hours of linear non-stop bludgeoning people to death with few badly designed puzzles in-between, then 2 minutes of witty remarks, then 3 more hours of axing people with higher percent of QTEs.
Summary: This is not an awful game and I suspect lurking in it somewhere is a good game waiting for a little more developer attention. However I cannot bring myself to like it because everything is just *off*. If you dig through these reviews there are already plenty of people (legitimately) complaining about the story, the combat, the general blandness so I won't rehash those points. What really i rritates me is that the game won't leave my desktop alone.
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I fell in love with this game from nearly the start as it goes slow for the first few minutes then things get going to a final crescendo that i thought i had already guessed but as with most good games of this type its not always as you think it is. The best part of this game is the sound effects and music, i highly recommend using headphones to play or playing via a really good sound setup.
Summary: When Fallout meets Fight Club, and bits and pieces of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Doom, AvP, and Gears of War franchises are thrown in for good measure, you get a slab of festering meat titled Afterfall: InSanity. I'm not going to rag on the voice acting, because honestly, I've heard worse, and enough people have pointed out the problems. Likewise, the melee combat and shaky camera effect are a nnoying but not a dealbreaker, because it's still manageable.
Summary: Ok.Ok.Ok. I gave this game a new chance. But`s even more terrible than before. It just doesn`t work. You can see the developers tried an therefore i don`t give it a total zero. Please hire someone who knows things about dramatization (theater or film) Someone who knows how to tell a storyline. Sound and voice are just...........o man......so bad.
Summary: Game doesn't look bad. But animation is a joke, voice acting is horrible, fighting is bad, oponents are retarded, and cut scenes are making you laugh .. how somebody could give this 9 or 10 is beyond me, probably producers themselves.
