UFO 2000

Post by bamb »

It's a nice game, been playing it a lot lately.
Plays and looks like the original x-com from 1994 or so, but multiplayer!

It takes a while to learn. Works best when playing against an opponent of your own level. There are of course some new weapons and extensions.

Anyway, the buildings are destructable and all that jazz...

I've been playing it year or two ago. It's nice, but I got bored rather fast.

Btw, in a few months there is a commercial, more or less remake, of the first xcom game coming out. Man, I can't wait to lay hands on it :shock:

i guess he means ufo: extraterrestrials, that is not supossed to be related to the aftersomething series

ive seen the trailers, it looks like an aftersomething with the story and background of the original ufo


these new games dont catch the atmosphere ufo: enemy unknown had, they are just dry tactical squad games with rpg and administration elements. im not talking out of nostalgia, i discovered ufo last year

Seriouly! How hard is it to have the SAME monsters, the SAME tech tree, and the SAME gameplay. I'd be happy if it was still 2D sprites and isometric view. Hell, I'd be HAPPY with 2D sprites and isometric view. Like really really good sprites, I mean. Like REALLY good ones.

Aye, that's it. Seems pretty promising to me, check this preview:

Resurrecting topic from dust (that results its stop biting it):
This game not only supports outload from original xcom (so you can play with original solders and stuff), BUT and have in it lua scripting system, so you able to make your weapons, location-types, units in no time. (of course if you're fammiliar with 2d graphics or can pose cam in 3dsmax to render animations...you know :D)

But let's start from begining. 1st.
http://ufo2000.sourceforge.net/
2nd.
its stand-alone project which started as tcp-ip clone of Emailgames - X-COM. Its oriented only for PvP in TBS mode. So you typically allowed to get aliens and humans in same team. (although psycic powers still not implemented its not interfering us from getting fun).
3rd
You allowed to edit every solder to accomplish balance which you want (my fav- 3 snipers (maximum weapons aiming with least other parameters), 2 gunslighters (plasma pistol on each+ good running parameters and good shooting), 1 Assault Skirmisher (missile launcher) and 1 Commander (flying suit, laser cannon, grenades). (i just named those clases mahself - you can do it on your own).
4th.
You will need original x-com alien invasion and (or) terror from the deep if you want to play with original graphics - if not - this game have some weapon and graphic packs itself.

Hopefully they make the new xcom like call of duty:black ops which is the best game of all times.
But with more explosions pls.
