Shattered Horizon (PC) - Review

VGChartz
7 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Zero gravity has always been a questionable modification to modern multiplayer shooters, love it or hate it. The biggest problem: decreased accuracy associated with the lack of cognitive motion. This lack of control makes judging distance and observing enemy movement difficult. Enter Futuremark Game Studios, a brand new game company which is a subsidiary of Futuremark Corporation.

Shattered Horizon Review

  • Excerpt: The battle’s been quiet for a few moments, so all I can hear is my own breathing inside my spacesuit. My boots are latched onto a bit of rock, and I’m crouched just below the lip of an enormous ridge overlooking the sprawling mining facility we’re trying to defend. I pop my head up above the lip tentatively, looking for the telltale signs of incoming blues. There — somebody’s let himself float too high and away from cover.

Expert Review

GameSpot
11 November 2009
  • Summary: As you might expect from a company best known for benchmarking programs aimed at hardcore PC gamers, Futuremark's Shattered Horizons is rather demanding. This Steam-distributed multiplayer-only shooter requires a top-of-the-line CPU and video-card combo, along with either Windows 7 or Vista as an operating system because the game has been built around DirectX 10 without support for Windows XP. But you can't complain (too much).
  • Pros: Unique space setting and easy-to-use controls, Features like zero gravity and stealth add depth to combat, Atmospheric outer space visuals
  • Cons: Demanding system requirements that include Windows 7 or Vista, Only four maps and three modes of play

  • Excerpt: If you are a PC gamer or have been in the past, then you’ll probably know Shattered Horizon ’s developer Futuremark. They are well known for their 3DMark computer benchmark software, which determines how much of a monster your PC really is at gaming with the latest graphic technologies. Futuremark are now having a stab at making a full game.

Shattered Horizon

  • Conclusion: Futuremark is best known for its 3DMark PC benchmark suite, but they've recently made their debut on gaming community with Shattered Horizon , an action packed shooter set in the debris of the Moon torn apart. Zero gravity and jetpacks make the firefights full of surprises and offer quite a bit of challenge even to the most seasoned online veteran. Content wise, though, the newcomer comes up a bit dry, albeit the 20 euro price tag alleviates the lack of maps quite a bit.
  • Pros: in zero gravity is easy to learn but hard to master, plenty of new stuff for shooter veterans, good gameplay balance, exciting environments, stellar graphics and sounds, smooth online play
  • Cons: No single player content, only four maps and three gaming modes, requires a hefty computer

Shattered Horizon Review

  • Conclusion: Overall the product here is of high quality, and it's rare to find such a high-end game gearing to such a dedicated crowd (the last such game was really TF2). But because of the quality of the game, I also think this is Futuremark's biggest failing - Shattered Horizon should be made more readily available and expanded upon.
