Unless they are actively trying to deceive people into thinking it is a finished product, I don't see what the big deal is.

I don't know, generally speaking when I'm shopping in a retail store I expect every product to be "finished". Even assembly required products have an expectation of functionality. Something like this just seems off. As Creston mentions who is the audience here? It seems like this is intended for casual/impulse sales at Walmart or something.

Yep, I agree this has bad PR written all over it and its going to backfire when people get home and see that they bought an incomplete game.

I don't see how they thought this was a good idea. and if you ask me this is just another sign these guys are wasting money un-necessarily on a boxed copy that required special printing because that box copy has to have something written on it that this is an early release.

Trust me, this game is like walking on red hot coals. Tread very lightly. These guys have shown that they are going to any lengths to make people believe this is an actually game they are working on.

All they have to show for are images that any fool could have drawn up.

Whoa, the comments are pretty brutal.

Yeah, that whole thing I'm just ready to walk away from. I'm not sure who to believe any more, and in a way I feel sorry for those doing the project, as it seems like they're being assaulted from all sides.

I will say I'm extremely skeptical they can accomplish what they want to with a base $50K, and it's obvious they're not going to get the $1m+ they want to really do the project right. It's like they can't win no matter what they do...


I hear what you are saying nin, but in all honesty, they deserve the bashing they are taking. They have nothing to show on what they are working on. They have no videos of actualy game play or anyone actually working in front of a pc showing off at least whats being worked on. They keep giving updates about how they are being wronged, but they failed each and every time to present and solid evidence about this project.

Theres just far to may shady things about these guys that raises red flags that you just cant trust anything they tell you. The whole presentation was done wrong from the get go. Anyone that's clearly wanting to get funding for a project should start their video with an introduction, then show off what they are designing. Then tell you about it and where they are going with it and introduce the team. They failed on all fronts.

Can you really thrust these guys when they are only asking for 50K? that wont even pay for one guys salary for 6 months.

And then theirs the fact they state this game is going to be on all platforms. okay, physical disk for that matter on one platform along will cost around 90K How if the fricking world do you fund a project, build it with a team of 10 or 12 peoples they say is on this project and do it all with 50K?

If you can answer that one, then you must have some inside info. because these guys fail to even address that fact or tell us why they only need 50K do they have private backers that are funding them? If so why all the secrecy?

No, these guys are trying to make a quick buck off the community, and they know getting 50K is a sure thing when you start tossing around the name STALKER.

Picked it up last night from Green Man with 20% coupon. So far LOVING the game, it's a blast. I dont know if Rebellion is a crap company or not but the game they made is solid....imo.

Someone was claiming their GMG key was revoked, and I'd be extremely curious if that was true, as I've never had a single issue with them in the past, over (looking at my orders) 14 purchases.



nin, I can confirm that my copy of the game that I bought from GMG is working. so my key was not revoked.

Like to see some user reviews on this one, but close to pulling the trigger (if it's as good as 2 was).


I own a copy, but unfortunately, tonight is our Lan Session, so I wonít be playing this one until later this weekend. I have no doubt that Iím going to like this one as much as the previous games.

Love the Coop. that was the best part of this game running around teamed up helping each other and covering your friend while he was getting into position to flank the enemy. This one should be even better with the larger more open environments. If anyoneís interested in Coop this weekend let me know.

Warning, this project is a probable scam, tons of red flags have risen.

Donate at your own risk.


And down to $1 we go...

Same here nin, I was all excited then started seeing all the complaints with this KS. I hope they are legit, they keep getting on there and posting they are putting up a video of the team by tonight early tomorrow. But at this point, Iím very skeptical of this campaign.

I actually like the new Total Recall movie better than the old Schwarzenegger one.

I have to disagree with you there, I thought the movie sucked. I happen to love the original Total Recall by Arnie, Nothing tops the scene where they try to convince him heís dreaming and the guys drips sweat down his brow letting Arnie know they are full of shit. The New scene of her crying did not come off as convincing for me and it just ruined the movie at that point.

Plus the damn movie didnít even take place on Mars!!

How the mighty has fallen, how in the world unless they blew money of stupid stuff does a company that has a great engine like the Cry Engine go bankrupt? I donít get that.

Can we blame EA for this? That somehow feels right.

I liked the previous game, but it was too slow and there just wasnít enough freedom in the game. Combat and troops were limited to move here and attack. I hope this one offers way more freedom.

Well...technically these chips are mostly made in Tawain, China, or Vietnam....so erm....yeah I guess they could go local, but a better bet would be that they should just make their own with cheap foreign slave labour...

I wouldnít give the Asians too much credit for those chips. Yes, they make them for us, but all of that tech was built and designed by us. I seriously doubt the Russian Chips are very good or reliable compared to Intel and AMD who have been making them for decades now. The Russians will be playing catch up for a very long time.

Marketing ploy to get people to buy the game because itís failing. This is what happens to games that lack Story and a SP game to boot.

I love mech games in general, but this will not get me to try or buy this game at all.

Haven't wanted to play a Far Cry game since the first (and imo the best one).

Definitely don't want to start again with FC 4...

Do you ever have anything positive to say about games or is it your just a grumpy assed person in general?

They factored in the additional time spent with the player only taking three steps an hour to get by the super creepy stuff.

The game is really just one hallways with air vents and a box blocking your way.

like I said, this game is going to be a Cat and Mouse game. From the review I read, it even sounded that way. Not really my kind of game.

Been there, done that! It was an okay game as long as you played it Coop. Not as bad as some try to make it out as especially since they implemented a bunch of patches that fixed a lot of the crap they said was supposed to be in the game thatís now there.

15 hours for a great SP experience is fine with me.

It is nice to see it that long, but me personally. Iím more about action. I just donít know If I can stand to play the cat and mouse game with an alien trying to kill me and I donít have any way to kill it until the end of the game. Not sure thatís my kind of game. Iím more about a pulse Rifle in my hands blasting everything in sight.
