Renegade X: Black Dawn Released

The Renegade X Website now offers the release of Renegade X: Black Dawn, a free standalone first-person shooter based on the Command and Conquer universe, developed independently by Totem Arts. They note this comes on the fifth anniversary of the Renegade X project that's had previous releases as a modification. This trailer offers a look at the game, and here's a bit of the description: "Renegade X is a tactical First Person Shooter with RTS elements, featuring two unique factions, each with distinctive weapons and vehicles. With stunning visuals and remarkable gameplay, Renegade X aims to push the Unreal Engine 3 to its climax." Thanks Joao.

I loved Ren original and Ren X, but the devs haven't addressed the most glaring issue the series has always had and that's weapon feedback. For example: Shoot an NPC in the torso with a sniper rifle round and you get no reaction. Hit him with a 2nd and he'll die. I depend on animations to let me know if I've connected with my round but in this game you get nada. It might seem nitpicky but it does take you out of the game. It also makes for a boring game if you don't see/feel the damage you are doing to NPC's or structures.

They did a good job with the visuals but, in the end, it feels hollow. Hopefully they'll address these issues in the MP release.
