Nether Review (PC)

Softpedia
25 June 2014
  • Conclusion: Although Nether still has quite a ways to go until it can offer a rich and fulfilling experience, it's definitely looking like it's going to get there. There are many things missing, but, to be fair, it's still early access. The excitement of running around fearing for your life, cautiously engaging in combat only after you have properly assessed the situation, and the relief of having made it back to safety after a lengthy run through the wasteland will make it worth it...
  • Pros: + gorgeous visuals, + very tense, + highly atmospheric
  • Cons: - Early Access, - not much to do, - other players

Expert Review

GameSpot
23 June 2014
  • Summary: The popularity of postapocalyptic survival games has been explosive, and it has become increasingly critical to offer a fresh take or risk being lost in the bedlam. Nether, however, is a first-person online survival shooter that doesn't strive to reinvent the wheel. It approaches the challenge by introducing tried-and-true ideas, mashing them together in hopes that the sum of its acclimated parts results in a bright entry in the well-trodden genre.
  • Pros: The world is dark, often compelling, and well realized, Nothing beats the thrill of dodging players and enemies, Melee combat has a weighted, organic feel
  • Cons: Immersion is harmed by invisible barriers and objects that can be clipped into, Enemy AI is too sensitive at times, Players don't cooperate even in co-op focused circumstances, Guns display arena-like performance, Bugs and glitches hamper the experience

  • Conclusion: My opinion of Nether changed vastly in the days I've played it. There were moments of grandeur, there were moments of failures. There were moments where I found myself awestruck by beauty, and moments where I was equally dumbfounded by the glitches or technical failures I encountered. My journey through this vast world was one I will not soon forget, for both good and bad reasons. Still, the potential is there.

Nether Review | LayZ

Dealspwn
18 June 2014
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Nether had potential to add compelling cooperative and social features to the DayZ survival experience, but ends up half-baked in almost every way. Released far too soon and crying out for several more months of development, it's hard to recommend this glitchy cut-throat package.
  • Pros: Tall and nuanced city to explore and sneak through, PvE combat can be hectic; enemies are tough and versatile, Tribes system could be refined into a game-defining idea
  • Cons: Full of glitches, bugs, mechanical quirks and visual cut corners, Half-cooked tribes system feels like a wasted opportunity at present, Almost nothing to do beyond killing newbies, little reason to group or level up, The wasteland swamp area is horribly empty; needs added content or complete removal, Feels like an incomplete beta, released FAR too early

  • Excerpt: Вы наверняка слышали о таких проектах, как DayZ , WarZ и Rust (его ванильная версия). А теперь вы должны знать о такой игре под названием Nether . Это, по сути, такой же симулятор выживания, который зиждется на тех же столпах, что и вышеупомянутые, но с некоторыми отличиями. За сей проект ответственна контора Phosphor Games , ранее занимавшаяся маленькими нишевыми продуктами и проходняками по кинолицензиям.

  • Excerpt: Egyszerre hálás és hálátlan dolog Early Access játékról írni. Hálás, mert láthatjuk, miből lesz a cserebogár, hogyan fejlődik egy játék kész produkcióvá. Hálátlan, mert előfordul, hogy az ígéretek nagyobbak, mint ami a késznek tekintett alkotásba végül bekerül. És az egyszeri újságíró, akinek előzetest kell írnia egy Early Access játékról, megpróbál óvatosan fogalmazni a hibákkal kapcsolatban és próbál lelkesedni a kiemelkedő, tetszetős aspektusok iránt.
  • Pros: Ahogy elkezdünk játszani, a játék atmoszférája igen megkapó...
  • Cons: ...amit aztán módszeresen lemészárolnak a hiányosságok

  • Conclusion: Ich frage mich, was die Entwickler die letzten vier Monate getrieben haben. An Nether haben sie jedenfalls nicht gearbeitet - das unfertige Survival-Abenteuer hätte die Early-Access-Phase nicht verlassen dürfen. Zwar stimmt die Atmosphäre, doch die schiefe Balance, die kruden Menügrafiken, das mässige Kampfsystem und viele weitere Ungereimtheiten wirken wie Drogen als Spielspasskiller.
  • Pros: Gelungene Atmosphäre, Schönes Leveldesign, Stimmungsvolle Musik
  • Cons: Zahlreiche Fehler, Missionen wiederholen sich, Kaum Teamwork, Schlechtes Waffengefühl, Fummelige Bedienung in Menüs, Hochstufige Gegner massiv überlegen, Echtgeldshop

Nether im Test

GameStar
3 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Die Early-Access-Phase von Nether ist vorbei, das Spiel in einer finalen Version bei Steam erhältlich. Unser Test zeigt, dass der Online-Survival-Shooter aber noch lange nicht fertig ist.
  • Pros: hübsche Lichteffekte, abwechslungsreiche Gegner, detailreiche Spielwelt, markerschütterndes Gekreische der Nether, Sounds auch auf Entfernung stimmig, guter Spieleinstieg durch Tutorial-Mission, Nahkampf recht ausgeglichen, stimmige postapokalyptische Spielwelt, stete Bedrohung durch die Nether, gängige Shooter-Steuerung, wenige Steuertasten notwendig, zu Beginn abwechslungsreiche und große Spielwelt, unterschiedliche Gegnertypen, einprägsame Gestaltung, viele Details...
  • Cons: Texturen laden oft nach, unscharfe Bodentexturen, stumpfe Schusswaffengeräusche, hochstufige Gegner mit guter Ausrüstung massiv überlegen, Bugs und Clipping-Fehler stören die Survival-Atmosphäre, Inventar fummelig, nach rund 30 Stunden Spielzeit aber kaum mehr neue Dinge zu entdecken, lieblose Gestaltung der Innenräume, viele nicht betretbare Gebäude, Copy-Paste-Gebäude und -Elemente, ...schaffen das aber kaum, nicht ausreichend Belohnungen für Kooperationen mit ander...
