    It's been awhile since I played this game. So why does it matter? Besides, the multiplayer is dead! Well, to keep people from playing this and to remind people that there might be supposedly "bad" games like Duke Nukem Forever or RAGE out there, but at LEAST they aren't this horrible, buggy, repetitive mess. If you get this game, you better enjoy constantly being incapacitated in a game that tries way too hard to be "realistic" when it comes to bullet damage or cover systems. And once incapacitated, you have to wait for your partners to revive you. The story is also a convoluted mess that I can't make ANY sense of at all. Seriously... what is... ANYTHING?! And why is anything?! Seriously, even my questions are becoming confused by this game's plot! Trust me guys, I tried SO HARD to enjoy this game, but it really imploded in on itself from the constant bugs, repeitive gameplay, and boring weapons. Avoid this game, or get it if you enjoy Gears of War if it was stripped of all intensity. Expand

    All I can say is that this game is bad. The shooting and recoil is bad. The enemies are generic. The guns are generic. If this game was free I would not waste my time on it. stay away!

    Wow...now this is one of the worst games I ever played, and I played a lot in the past 30 years. The graphics are horrible, animations look gruesome, there is no comprehensibel story at all and the controls are rubbish. The Scourge Project manages to frustrate the player after just five minutes with its clumsy gameplay mechanics and its awful looks, just like it literally tries to be a scourge for the gaming community. This game is available for 9,99 on Steam right now, but seriously: go buy some beer or spare the money, because The Scourge Project is not worth it. Expand

  1. All I can say is that it looks as if they at least tried to make an effort, but their attempt to create a digital, small-scale version of Gears has been an absolute failure.
  2. The Scourge Project it´s just an unpolished third person shooter utilizing the Unreal Engine and featuring four Gears of War wannabes as its main characters. Uninspired gameplay, constant issues and boring story, this game is one to avoid.
  3. The Scourge Project is a perfect example of how an inexperienced developer bit more than they could chew. They wanted to create a multi-platform action title with a great story and a four-player cooperative gameplay, but made a threepenny whangdoodle instead.
