Krater Review (PC)

Softpedia
4 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Krater could be a great game, but the lack of resources makes its initial version hard to love. Combat is a mixed experience and there are still quite lot of things that need to be polished, like the squad mechanics, and plenty of things that are missing, like a tactical pause. Many updates are scheduled to appear but, at least for now, you might want to steer clear of the dungeon crawler.
  • Pros: +Lush environments, +Original concept
  • Cons: -Lots of backtracking, -Lackluster story, -No multiplayer at launch

Krater

DarkStation
26 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Krater offers an interesting take on post-apocalyptic games and utilizes strategic maneuvers while engaged in combat, but it felt a bit dragged out and of course, I went a little click happy. Although the story was okay, I felt that the gameplay was repetitive and the point-and-click tactic was getting tired. It’s got some fun RPG elements, but the strategy wears thin when you begin to fight the same way continuously, just because it works.

Post Apocalyptic Goes International

GIN
2 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I've become a bit of an aficionado of post-nuclear war RPGs without really knowing it. Starting out with Wasteland and the original Fallout and moving up through S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and New Vegas, if there was an apocalypse involved, I was there. And it's been a while since I saw anything really new, which is why it was so cool to find Krater from Fatshark. It takes us all the way to Sweden, to see how they handled the end of the world.

Krater

Strategy Informer
1 July 2012
  • Conclusion: So, it’s a mixed bag. Krater has a lot of promise but it ends up as a genuinely average game. That’s not a blemish on it, it’s the truth. It could have been a lot better, but at the same it had the risk of ending up a lot worse. Krater presents an intriguing world, a new take on character development and clever design but at the same time the design choices to support its interesting mechanics are the negatives.

Krater Review | The Colourful Apocalypse

Dealspwn
19 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Krater is an engrossing, colourful and action-packed RPG that revels in its own unique personality. It's big on value and style. It's great fun when it works. It's a perfect summer time sink.
  • Pros: Solid and satisfying action-RPG gameplay, Colourful setting and irrepressible personality, Great value
  • Cons: Solid and satisfying action-RPG gameplay, Colourful setting and irrepressible personality, Great value, Weird lack of squad selection and formation commands, Combat can become repetitive and confusing, Unsatisfying and restrictive character development, Horrible launch, missing co-op, some persistent graphics and gameplay issues

29 August 2013
  • Summary: Um RPG produzido por uma equipa independente e distribuído via digital no Steam a um preço convidativo. A diversão da exploração e do progresso das personagens só é ofuscada por alguns problemas técnicos e de design.
  • Pros: DANOS PERMANENTES - O conceito de danos ou mortes permanentes não é novidade -– que o digam os jogadores do modo Hardcore de Diablo III . Em Krater o conceito é utilizado com mestria na narrativa, ao obrigar-nos a gerir e ter cuidado com as personagens tombadas. Quando isso acontece, terão de ir ao hospital curá-las, caso contrário poderão contrair danos permanentes, tais como um pé partido, o que reduz as estatísticas de movimento, ou que podem levar mesmo à morte da...
  • Cons: SISTEMA DE EXPERIÊNCIA - O jogo utiliza um sistema de progresso de experiência das personagens algo estranho. O nível máximo é 15, mas a cada 5 precisam de pagar um valor elevado de ouro para desbloquear a patente seguinte. Na prática vai acontecer não terem dinheiro suficiente para o fazer, impedindo a personagem de ganhar experiência nas Quests e eliminação de inimigos. Por outro lado, as personagens recrutadas começam do zero, significando que se deixarem morrer um...

  • Summary: Это форменный бардак, который кроме всего прочего ещё и вгоняет в грусть-тоску. Зачем, зачем было так торопиться, выпускать игру с довольно неплохим потенциалом в столь сжатые сроки? Авторы были готовы порезать её на части, частично оставить без озвучки и полностью без кооператива, не добавить PVP, но выпустить. Это их и сгубило. Хороший дизайн, самоирония, атмосфера никак не оправдывают общей однообразности игры, её забагованности и вышеописанных недоработок.

Рецензия на Krater

gmbox.ru
1 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Швеция, пережившая Третью Мировую в игре Krater , не сильно отличается от Швеции обычной: имена ядерных монстров — Бьельбьерн, Хунд, Гнааг — напоминают названия стеллажей из IKEA, а весь постапокалипсис — это леса, деревни, и экскаваторный ковш вместо дубины в руке одного из героев. Krater — это, если коротко, облегченная и экологически чистая версия Diablo, в которой игрока встречают с настоящей северной суровостью.
