Oct 29, 2013Have you ever wondered what Diablo II would be like with more giant robots and less depth? No? Me neither. But I guess someone did. Turns out the answer is "mildly entertaining".
I'm not gonna lie to you, I only played this game for about 4 hours. in single player. while drinking, so feel free to take my opinion with a grain of salt. That being said, here are my thoughts:
Graphics decent. Nothing to write home about, but not ugly or overly busy, either.
Story aliens something something cyborgs yadda yadda giant robots. Thankfully, it doesn't seem to have much bearing on the game itself.
Game Play You are a robot. Or a dude in a robot suit. Or something. I wasn't really clear on that. Anyway, there are other robots, most of which look alike, and they evidently don't much care for your shiny metal ass. So you shoot them. Sometimes they drop loot in the form of upgrades for your robot. Usually they drop money with which you can purchase upgrades for your robot. Rinse and repeat. There's a basic scheme for leveling up. You know the deal: 1) Get some points. 2) Improve some attributes. 3) Shoot more robots. 4) Finish your scotch.
My only real beef was actually the size of the area maps themselves. They're massive. I know, I know, you're thinking, "What's so bad about that?" But here's the thing: your robot does not move fast. At all. So plan to spend a lot of time drinking with one hand and using the other to make your robot plod mindlessly (um, robotically?) along. This gets old pretty quickly, and can lead to running out of booze much faster than you normally would. Otherwise, the game is ok, I guess.
Overall, The Harvest isn't gonna change your life or anything, but you could probably do worse.… Expand
