Deadfall Adventures Free Weekend

Steam News announces a free weekend is underway in Deadfall Adventures, coinciding with a 50% off sale on The Farm 51's action/adventure. Word is: "Deadfall Adventures is an action-driven first-person shooter, spiced up with elements from action-adventure games. Become an adventurer, hunt for treasures, explore unknown regions of the world and rescue the damsel in distress from the clutches of enemies, both earthly and not-so-earthly."

The overall poor reviews (53 metascore!) have kept me from ever buying this game--even though the concept has always sounded pretty cool to me (especially the option to play it co-op). Alas, that score doesn't bode well, free weekend or not.

Yeah I love all the old adventure pulps and serials so this sort of thing is right up my alley...except that all the reviews say it's pretty bad. I have too much on my plate atm anyway so I'll bite when it's bargain bin - probably the Xmas sale.

I just put a couple hours into it; it's not too bad I must say. Not great, but entertaining. Indiana Jones-ish, with decent balance of puzzles, combat, exploration, etc. Character textures and animation is decent, level designs/environments are pretty cool, it plays very smooth. MUCH more optimized than Thief (4), which is an F'ing PIG in that department.

IMHO, it is worth downloading and playing during the 2 day 'Free Weekend'.


You keep sayig that about Thief. Maybe you're forgetting that Thief actually looks pretty gorgeous? Just saying. Also, the game runs as smooth as butter on my 2 year old rig so maybe it's on your end.

Keep saying? You may be mistaking me for someone else, as I believe that was the first time I 'posted' how poorly Thief 4 runs, but I am not the only one that has stated that complaint.

Regardless, in comparison to other games that use the Unreal 2.5/3.0 Engine, Thief seems 'very' poorly optimized in comparison. For example, I can crank every video setting to maximum settings in Splinter Cell: Black List, and it runs smooth as silk and looks incredible ('much' better than Thief in comparison). But, if I try the same thing with Thief it chokes. Thief just wasn't optimized well, but if it is running well for you, that's good for you.

I've been looking at this game on and off since its release, but haven't pulled the trigger. It looks like it could be fun, but kinda cheesy too. There seems to be mixed review, but regardless, the free weekend is already under way, so I might as well give it a whirl. DL now....
