Raze One started as a small project by Addison-R. Due to the vast amounts of programmers quitting the project everyday, he approached Juice-Tin for help. Raze 1 is the product and still is a favorite today.
Raze is a futuristic battle game. Your character is controlled by the letters W, A, S and D on your keypad, and to aim and shoot you have to use your mouse. You can change your weapon with letters 1-9.
The aim of the game is to fight for your planet, battling against aliens and robots! Which is awesome, although if it was to happen in real life it definitely wouldn’t be…
The game opens up on a start up screen, where you can choose the appearance, personality and name of your character. Once you have done that, you get the option of playing a quick match or playing the campaign version. When it’s your first time playing you have to do a tutorial before playing properly, which is very helpful because it’s hard to absorb the game play details unless you can read it whilst playing.
You have to go through obstacles to reach your enemy and fight them by shooting them. You have to kill your enemy multiple times, not just the once, as you have the option to re-spawn. Whoever kills the other the most, is victorious.
There are many areas in the course of the game where you can obtain stuff to help you: for example, invincibility, weapon changes, etc.
Playing the campaign version is like playing a story mode. You have to complete levels and once you complete the final level you’ve completed the game! The first level starts off as easy but as you progress it gets more and more difficult, like most things! Whereas, quick match doesn’t really have an aim, it’s just to play for fun and I would definitely recommend playing a handful of matches in this mode before playing the campaign, as quick match allows you to develop skills whilst playing. Going straight into playing the campaign is setting yourself up to fail as you would not have allowed yourself to adjust and get used to the game.
This game is great for those who love an end result, those who love battle games, those who love fantasy games, and also those who love mini games! I really think this game has something in it for everyone, and it is also simple, but not easy!
