Counter Spell reviews and comments

Translated by

Counter Spell is an interesting and entertaining Mix of First-person shooter (FPS) and Role-playing (RPG) and an Insider tip for Fans of indie games. From The Feel of the game, the Game plays like an FPS, but is supplemented by various classic Elements of an RPG. There are different Classes with different Abilities, Level Ascents, Skill points and you collect better And better equipment that makes the Character even stronger. The Game is roughly comparable to Witches 2 and the slightly newer Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. Counter Spell has various Game Modes. Quest Mode is the typical Single-player Campaign where you explore the whole World little by little. The Game is Open World, meaning one is limited only by the Opponent strength in his Actions. The Story here is rather rudimentary, but you can find several Books in the World that deepen and execute the Back story quite amusingly. You can also play The Campaign Coop with Friends. However, It mainly serves to become familiar with the World, his Character's Opponent and Abilities, and lasts about 5 Hours. Then you can either continue to farm better Items for your Character there, try a higher Level Of Difficulty (there are 3), try the other Classes or let off steam in one of the other 9 game Modes with Friends. These are either limited to one Sector of the World or use the entire World Map. You can choose between classic PVP modes such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Kingslayer, which also offer some interesting Deviations and Variations from the well-known Modes or several Co-op modes with Friends such as the classic survival. In the PvP modes, Item benefits can be disabled if Desired to guarantee fair Matches. In the Coop modes, on the other hand, you can also find better Equipment for your Character. The Game also delivers an extensive Construction Mode where you can build your own Maps, as in Minecraft. If you like to get creative, you can spend several Hours here. Particularly noteworthy is the outstanding Maintenance of the Game by the Developer. There are regular Patches with new Content and Bug Fixes and questions or Suggestions in the Forum will be responded to Within a few Hours. So The Game is constantly evolving and improving, allowing you to look again every few Months and find interesting Innovations. Solo Play Time: 5-20 Hours Multiplayer game time: 1-20 Hours + Varied Classes + Unused and New Game feeling + Very active Developer, frequent Updates and Very quick answers and reactions in the Forum + Many fun game modes +/-The Graphic style is Certainly a Matter of taste, but in itself very nice and absolutely coherent-Little Active Players who want to play Multiplayer Modes should bring a few Friends. Although There are regular Multiplayer meetings organized in the Forum, but from the USA, so That they only take place in Germany at night between 2-4 o 'clock-Rudimentary Story, who attaches Importance to a good Story, becomes rather disappointed Conclusion: Who likes indie games as well as the Graphic style and Like to try something new, You should definitely check out Counter Spell.
