Much like The Great War itself, Verdun is rough, grim and wholly unforgiving. A perpetual lesson in patience and poise which decisively punishes fools but rewards frugal armchair tacticians, Verdun makes the player work in every way that a good shooter should. Emboldened by an impassioned take on one of history’s more overlooked conflicts, Verdun’s rough appearance is not enough to detract from one of the finest shooters on PS4.
This is a great game, but for some reason no one will give it credit. This is hands down on of the best WWI fps out there it mixes trenches with squads while always staying immersed. This is a great Game!!!!
Verdun offers a unique experience not seen elsewhere on the PS4. It’s realistic, historically accurate and sometimes satisfying gameplay can’t make up for the fact that the game’s community is almost non-existent, gameplay is riddled with technical issues and the lack of a proper tutorial can make the game downright frustrating.
If Verdun had adopted a free-to-play model on consoles, I could see the beauty in its unrefined animations or crudely rendered environments. But with a superior PC version on the market, it’s best to forget this PS4 port even exists.
While Verdun is a relatively intriguing experience on a computer, the same cannot be said of the newly released console version of the game. It is a downgrade in every was possible, be it visuals, audio, gameplay, or even the amount of players present. Verdun is an example of the worst console ports have to offer.
How I would have loved to love this game, a more realistic setting (of WW1) and a more realistic and gritty feeling of war in comparison with games like COD or Battlefield. One shot mostly kills you, which is very realistic but also very frustrating because shooting the enemy sometimes doesn't seem to connect, which is especially annoying if you shoot an enemy 4 times in the chest and then get smacked by him in the face with his gun and die... not so realistic afterall!
It's bugs like that which screw up this game big time! It could be that the game makes it harder to kill a high rank player, but that would make no sense also.
The graphics are very basic to bad: often times I have seen dead soldiers shaking and twisting with an arm or a leg in an impossible position. It might look funny but it's just not right.
The sound is also very basic, but it's good enough to create an atmosphere that makes you feel like you're in a battlefield. It can be confusing though because you think there are enemies yelling or bombs exploding in places where there is nobody at all. At times I even got confused by my own footsteps on the wooden floor in the trenches, thinking there is someone walking behind me but it was just my own foorsteps sounding way too loud.
The game has a very steep learning curve and at first you will get shot time and time again by players who have been playing the game a longer time than you. I don't mind a learning curve and being killed by good players (for instance in Chivalry), but this is just frustrating as hell! Especially the campers who don't leave their spot and keep sniping other players, who try to play the game as it should be played, namely following the directions of the leader and moving from trench to trench.
The NCO can call in a mortar strike, so don't be surprised when you get blown up without any warning! The map is rather small and you get a suicide kill in seconds after going a bit outside of the area, for instance if you try to go around the enemy. The map is also scattered with barbed wires, which is very easy to get stuck in and again you die in seconds, which is very annoying!
There are only players active in the Frontline game mode, every other game mode has empty servers. And there are not many maps either, so after playing a few hours you might get a bit bored of it, at least I was.
I read somewhere that they are making a sequel to this game and I can only hope they will make it better, because there is a good game hidden somewhere in here. Games with less players in the lobby were a lot more fun to me by the way, because you can run around a bit without being sniped or machine-gunned by campers right away.
Which brings me to another problem in this game: in a full lobby it's sometimes really hard to see who is your enemy and who is a friend. And pausing the game to check the teams is also not helping, because i saw friendly players in the game which are shown as enemies in the menu and vice versa. It took me a while to find out that you can recognise your friends by pointing your gun at them and seeing their names above their heads (but ofcourse if you try doing this with an enemy, you will probably be dead by the time you checked).
Luckily I bought this game for a cheap price, otherwise I would seriously have regretted spending my money on it. As it is, I go back to it now and then for a short time. Playing it more than half an hour makes my blood boil and my throat hurt from cursing and yelling at my TV!
buen juego basado en la primera guerra mundial
tiene muchos detalles de la guerra de trincheras, buena simulación de armas y estrategias para atacar y defender
el precio bajo compensa el apartado técnico tan deficiente que tiene
bad port **** which seemed promising from gameplay. The frame rate and hit detection is absolutely atrocious. Couple this with visuals worse than PS2, and you have Verdun, a let down. When it works, it can sometimes be fun to play. Unfortunately, more often than not, it is simply not fun an just frustrating
Seriously, this game is f***ing garbage. A game should be fun, and this is so not fun it's totally not funny.
I'm a huge military history fan, I've been sightseeing to every battlefield of the great war, watched every movie/documentary and been to every museum in Europe. I've also been playing games since I got an Atari 2600 in 1983. This game does nothing good. Nothing whatsoever.
