  1. It’s got a good story, some neat characters, some nifty sneaking around stuff, team based gameplay, tons of explosions and weapons, and it’s all wrapped up in one of the prettiest little graphics packages I’ve seen in a while.
  2. Has what fans of first-person shooters would want, a simple goal, lots of exotic weapons and a skillfully rendered graphical environment in which to stack bodies.
  3. If it could crash less, have its gameplay as polished as its graphics, and a few more smarts included using its premise, it could be on another level altogether. As it stands now, it fails to devastate the competition.
  4. Perhaps most notable is the undeniable beauty of the surroundings in which all of this takes place.
  5. If a more compelling storyline was provided, the score would be higher, but as it stands right now, Devastation will sit on my HD for multiplayer matches and a reason to show off my PC’s graphics to friends and family and that’s about it.
  6. A potentially decent FPS that is marred by shoddy AI, repetitive gameplay, and some serious programming bugs.
  7. Developed by Arush Entertainment, this urban-themed FPS game makes a few stabs at greatness but ultimately misses its mark by, oh, about a mile.

    Great game because of the atmosphere, the nice guns and the detailled graphics.

Lots of lampposts, beautiful harbour with all the nice sounds that belongs to it, nice village with a toilet outside where you can hear the crickets. Great great atmosphere if you can feel it. Expand

    I know this game is old as fck but god damn.....
    Here are the pros and cons in my absolute honest opinion.
    cons:
    -bad dialogue, even for a simple shooter
    -many things didn't have an actual texture to the like cars and such, simply slapped a skin onto a box shape and called it a day
    -control are absolutely atrocious
    pros:
    -pretty interesting and decent plot tbh
    -amazing arsenal
    -cool characters (though you could also kind them boring, depends on your own personality)
    -Cool level designs for a '03 game
    -actually not bad graphics overall, but pathetic compared to others of it's time
    I'll give this an 8/10 for old times sake, normally it'd be at 5 or 6.

In the first hours, the graphics and atmosphere are striking and the action is satisfying. But you can find too many game-breaking bugs, repetitive gameplay and the story is beyond dull. Sad, because it had a lot of potential! Expand

    Great and simple FPS game. But lacks of musics. Good story and graphics for 2001 games.
