What's wrong with the game? I never played it past the demo, would have got it if back then i had my own income. So my opinion is TBH as valuable as OP's jaded ramblings.
I liked the premise of the story WW1 not ending and such. Also the gameplay was on par with what was out at the time wasn't among the best though IIRC.
Answer the question on everybodies lips (keyboard lol!) What make it ineligible to be on this site?
To me my only point i'd have is wondering if it's considered OLD enough for Good OLD Games. Then again I was a teen when it came out I think and i haven't visited this site enough to know what GoG's criteria actually is.
From some reviews I've reads so far for Iron Storm. Apparently the game is too hard? Well... A good portion of games back in the day where hard. The easy ones back then where also as challenging as the ones considered difficult now. They where hard because they had to be. Not many developers had the means to prolong playability by spoon feeding retards DLC packs they will polish off in an hour. If they didn't want people finishing the game in one sitting (your average sitting mind you) they had to make it challenging or just plain hard. High difficulty is no reason to brand the game shit... TL:DR
Simple case of Opinion != Fact. Hard != Bad (unless you are).
No, really it is just bad. The style is interesting enough and the production values are solid but the gameplay is bland at best. I have distinctive memories of being stuck in trenches because the enemy snipers would get instant head shots if I so much as poked my head above the ridge line. It was more than a little frustrating... especially seeing as the rest of the game was a pushover.
Still, there's no problem with GoG stocking it. Someone will buy it I'm sure.
