Expert Review

13 July 2012
  • Summary: It's always disappointing when cool concepts are killed by sloppy execution. The meticulously orchestrated chaos that erupts on the battlefield as squads of well-armed future soldiers duke it out in Fray's asynchronous turn-based encounters certainly appeals on a strategic level. But this multiplayer-only affair rapidly bleeds out its potential with only the lightest prodding.
  • Pros: Rare well-balanced matches can be a lot of fun, Lots of gear and perks to unlock
  • Cons: Frequent visual and gameplay glitches, Interface is awkward and inconsistent, Matchmaking is problematic, Weak player community

  • Summary: Fray is great in theory, but suffers from a seemingly half-finished execution
  • Pros: Simultaneous turn-based tactical combat is a great core concept for a game. Plenty of potential for strategic experimentation.
  • Cons: Almost embarrassingly buggy for a game that has made it to release. Not enough game modes and no real matchmaking system. No single player, making it unplayable without willing opponents. Lags in places even when everything else is going right.

  • Summary: Графика в стратегии — не главное. «Баги» тоже поправимы. Но отсутствие одиночной кампании и скудный выбор многопользовательских режимов ничем не оправдать. Несмотря на потенциал, с таким отношением к покупателям далеко не уедешь. Если уж с финансами совсем труба, выставили бы проект на Kickstarter или обратились к проверенной f2p-схеме (кстати, за счет микроплатежей живет идеологически близкая Jagged Alliance Online ). Сейчас Fray вообще сложно назвать игрой.
