Dark Void Zero reviews and comments

I Do not advise you to buy this game, because you just can not pass the check SecuRom'a, because stim gives not valid keys, with which you need to rape the brain technical support secrum, which will transfer you to the Shapkomovam, which would require you to the screen key, Mail, purse trims, your ass, then a week will wait for you to come the activation code. And God forbid you to reinstall the game))) I Regret that acquired this gemor despite the feedback of the same lucky. Score game 0 out of 10. I'm going to Play it with pirates without any gemora, and let the cap be suppressed by 19 rubles...

So..... The Game, which was an April Fool's joke was better than the usual dark void. What is the good of Dark Void Zero? List and Pros and cons together. 1. It is platformer. The First seconds of 200 seem to be nothing complicated. However, we select the first key and there are already difficulties-we can only carry one weapon and often come across places where further pass not to change weapons. More often comes across the simplest blaster, less often a shotgun.... However, in addition to the usual "collect keys" there are side tasks-kill scientists, collect notes, destroy the creatures. Diluted it all with a spike of ragags and some closed rooms, where you go and you have to kill all the enemies until you get out. 2. Only three levels. Yes, exactly three. Seems a little? After the game, the feeling was the beginning. But you try to pass all 3 to start on the average or harde. This is already a test so test. For Achivhanters This game can become a real hell. Don't you believe me? Pass the closed room in 5 seconds. Or collect all the coins. And How do you not lose a single life for the whole game? Or at one of the levels do not touch any protective laser? Or a game for 37 minutes? This game will quite diversify your vocabulary if you want a serious test. 3. What is the first game we are given? 3 lives, Blaster and NO KONTS. That is, if not found the extra life and spent the available-please start over. Which already hints to plan your actions. That is accustomed to play in the COP or other and do "rush to the center" here will not be able to pass and half the level. ADD in the same paragraph very strange inclusion of Dzhetpaka (find at the first level). If you want it to turn on and work constantly-double-click the jump. Also disable it. Once 8 My character died only because of the fact that it was not included in time Dzhetpak and it fell in lava, until I understood this scheme... To summarize I will say-in this game I will return. She is very kind, gives nostalgia on katrijam (thanks to separate developers for warning that not inserted catridge). All who played in the Old Duke Nukem (3 and 4, for example, could be found on the PC in the collection in the 90s)-to take unequivocally. Personal Rating-4 out of 5.
