  1. As it is now, The Scourge Project is pretty average overall. AI, the sound effects, graphics and the atmosphere altogether are not really convincing. Good thing is: A patch is said to be released soon.
  2. Far from being a masterpiece, The Scourge Project: Episodes 1 and 2 for a budget price offers a single player campaign that lasts about five hours, an interesting co-op mode for four players and a series of classic multiplayer competitive modes.
  3. This is pretty much a low-budget version of Gears of War, but enjoyable enough for what it is. Only buy if you can play in coop mode with real human beings, though, because the AI of your squad mates is just dreadful.
  4. A flawed Gears of War clone: mixes decent graphics with a repetitive gameplay. You're going to find a huge amount of better shooters for your PC out there.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Edge Magazine
    Plays unbearably clumsily. [June 2010, p.104]
  8. 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.

    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 andIt'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. Full Review »
