Ugh...basically if you loved the original UT and Quake3, then this is your game, otherwise stay away...far away...Team play? Yeah, if you can get your 'team' to shut up for two seconds and not have them curse you out in the same amount of time....

This is NOTHING like UT or Quake 3. I played those in clans for years. Shootmania is a garbage game through and through with highly pompous devs and ridiculous past marketing.

I think it's pretty hilarious they make an entire game around insta-gib mutator from UT or Quake 2/3 for that matter. It was fun for a match or 2, but then everyone on my LAN wanted it disabled again (CTF-Face was always hilarious with bots on godlike and insta-gib + low gravity mode on) we even made our own custom "pwnage" bot with accuracy 100% no matter what bot difficulty was set (so even on lame-bot mode where they don't return fire, that bot could spawn) that had a random chance of 1 out of 64 to actually spawn in a match, and when it did the AI pwned us utterly and every kill we got against it was celebrated, ah the good old times.

I kinda miss these shooters.... sadly nobody does em anymore.

Ps.: Team play in insta-gib? Good joke. The one with the most skill is the one who's gonna win, teamplay doesn't matter in 3 v 3 if the skills aren't matched.
