Interstellar Marines Review
Hello everyone and happy Wednesday. Sorry for my long leave of absence, but had plans for Spring break. A couple weeks back I reviewed a fun survival game called Rust that is still in Alpha. Though they are unrelated in genre, they both are still undergoing alpha stage construction, although Interstellar Marines looks graphically more impressive compared to Rust. Developed and published by a cool little indie game company called Zero Point Software that have worked super hard to make this game happen. Since Interstellar Marines is still in Alpha, little story has been released. In the future the United Nations has funded Project M, a top secret military program, where you as an elite soldier, have been picked to undergo training with your fellow marines. The overall goal of the project is to protect mankind from threats outside the solar system.
Possible future weapons
Therefore, the player is armed with a machine gun that fires a form of "stun round" that shocks the player like a tazer, rendering them unconscious. For the classical FPS player, don't fret, this game operates in the same way any other shooter, headshots equal more damage, time your shots accordingly and aim down the sights. So basically the only differences are that your not actually killing the opposing team, just incapacitating them. Also theres only one gun so far, but the developers promise more content to come including guns, maps, and a campaign. The player would be surprised that all they need is one gun, though I'm gonna lie that I would like a sidearm for when I run out of ammo. Other than that, it's a nice return to the classic FPS and is fun with friends. I would recommend it for any gamer, it is currently available for purchase through Steam. Anyone considering buying this game had better do it now, as more content and features are added, the price will go up. The game is awesome and shows much potential to come. I hope you enjoyed this review and I will be back next week with another post. Until then, have fun. This has been Jacob Arnold, signing off.
