Place Review 1/23/2012: Laser Tag
I recently started to get into writing more reviews, so I decided to take the challenge and do six place reviews every week, outrageous? We'll find out the answer after all six reviews have been published, I will tell you if it was hard at the sixth review.
So, as every week, I begin by reviewing the thumbnail. This is the most important part of any place because it shows what the game is going to be about and what it's been named. Apparently, this game has been named with a simple name, "Laser Tag." Not bad, but maybe a much more exciting name? It's just that the name "Laser Tag" becomes a bit dull after seeing the name for many months. The scenery is just a map that was created by a user which was given credit by Stickmasterluke. Also, I forgot to mention that Stickmasterluke created this entire place with user-made maps, but does give credit for all of them, which is outstanding.
We enter this game and find us in a lobby on top of a platform colored of the team we are on, either Red or Blue. Both basic team colors I should add, which is good. We find ourselves separated from the opposing team so nobody has to cause trouble. Also, weapons have been disabled during Intermission so nobody can kill anyone else either from their own team, or on the opposing team. This place has obviously been planned out, which is a common thing that Stickmasterluke does, it's just the way he rolls. Our round begins, a map is chosen and we're all teleported to the map stated before.
We enter a random map created by a user which again was given credit for by Stickmasterluke. We take our laser gun out and we begin. You are denied of shooting thousands of times because that is unrealistic, thanks to Stickmasterluke. You may only shoot once every time your laser gun reloads. The sound when a laser gun shoots is from a game created by Stickmasterluke that was also related to lasers, forgot the name though. My team lost before one minute even went by. So, Righteous Red won this round. The round ends and the game prepares itself to start a new round.
I did leave out a few minor details, but they are worth talking about anyway. So, while playing, you see a GUI on top with both team's points and the time remaining in the round. There's also a GUI below saying "Folder," this just shows you your statistics from your overall game experience.
Scripting: 10/10, there are countless scripts found inside this very game and more are added every now and then, great job.
Tools: 10/10, all the necessary tools are provided in here.
Building: 10/10, all maps are made by other users, but they are great maps, and again, were given credit.
Community Enjoyment: 10/10, countless users enjoy this game, as did I.
Originality: 3/10, not too original, I've seen so many Laser Tag games.
Creativity: 10/10, very creative.
Deals with Problems: 10/10, no problems have been found to this date.
Reviewer's Experience with Lag: 10/10, no lag was experienced because I have a pretty fast computer.
Difficulty: Medium, it's pretty neutral because it might be easy for pros hard for newbies. So, Medium.
Reviewer's Enjoyment: 10/10, enjoyed this game very much.
Reviewer's Recommendation: 10/10, highly recommend this game to anyone who is familiar to Stickmasterluke's games or anyone who wants to learn more of his game creating style.
Overall: 10/10, his game inspires many users. His place deserves a ten, no denial.
