Retro FPS Fans will find themselves back in their old shooter shoes with the games run and gun style of action gameplay.
If you're looking for story, and realism you won't find it here.
If you're looking for a dark, gritty, brutal and just outright BLOODY experience, you've come to the right place. Whether you were a fan of the original game, or you are just sick and tired ofread more the hand-holding, story telling shooters of today, you will feel right at home.
The game can appear glitchy at times, with a strange lunge knifing system that you will often miss with and the hit boxes can be a little funny as well. I have seen some clipping with enemies poking through walls, but that is rare.
This isn't a type of game to stop and smell the roses. This is a blood pumping, WASD-SPACEing, trigger itching gorefest. However, players that DO stop and look at the high texture detailed models, will often get a chuckle at times. I shall not post any spoilers here though, as I do not believe in ruining humor before it is experienced.
All in all, this is a great game. With many references to the old game. There are times where you feel it is a bit TOO much like the old game, but I do like that they even added a "Classic" mode within the sounds, to bring back the old soundtrack, rather than the metal (albiet GREAT) remakes.
To put it simply, an old game with a new face. Enjoy!

Levels feel to small. Lots of clipping issues. Hard to spot enemies. You get fired on and you just don't know who or what. General darian's lair not as good as original. No quicksave but checkpoints. Movement feels odd. Speed is good as the original was fast. If you want slower, choose Doug Wendt as character as he walks the slowest and has most health.
Multiplayer is fun, butread more i miss the original's game modes. Tag, collect triads etc.
Game feels like a rushed mod. It is still fun, but I rather play the original with winrott. Hopefully patches will improve the game in some ways. I will keep my hopes up.

As someone who does not like the modern military shooters (excluding Arma), this is just what I wanted. Fast paced shooting, proper level design, and a great soundtrack to get you pumped up for causing carnage. If you played the original RotT you will feel right at home. Floating platforms, multitude of traps, the limit of amount of weapons you can carry, and the power ups andread more power downs ate all here.
The only downside of the game I have found so far are the lack of quick saves. As someone who sometimes needs to leave in the middle of a game, it would be nice to not have to replay the areas I have cleared out all over again.
All in all, do yourself a favor and buy the game. After all, it is only $15!
