This game looks like it could be very good or fail completely.
Honestly, I've been waiting for a story-focused co-op game, and this could be it.
I'd get it right now, but my connection isn't healthy for multiplayer and I just bought a few games...

Well it takes more time to download than expected. It's a whopping 6 gigs which is a lot considering the price of the game. it will be ready in 30 mins or so, since the modern warfare 2 weekend is crippling the steam servers in my area.

There is a forum for Lead and Gold (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=860), they just haven't linked it from the store page yet.

Lead and Gold looks pretty good but I'm waiting for dedicated servers, which should be soon.

[Edit] I doubt it'll be abandonware either, the devs are pretty active on the Steam forum and, of course, their offical forum (http://forums.leadandgold.com/index.php).

Anyway, sorry to go off-topic, I'm curious about this game too. Looking forward to seeing some feedback.

So do demos. Also demos are a hell of a lot larger investment than most people realize, you can't just take a "chunk" out of the game and slap it in. And even then, this is a $20 game so don't hold your breath.

Lead and Gold is a really good game but needs some work, but that's not what this forum is about.

This one looks interesting, I'll probably check it out.

Madmanden
04-09-2010, 03:33 PM
okay these are my first impressions of playing for 45-60 minutes single-player:

Gameplay:
I played with a logitech 360 controller and the game detected it and set itself up for it without problems. The gameplay so far seems to be gears of war and mass effect mixed together in 4 player co-op. Don't expect miracles from the gunplay since it feels kind of "flat". The guns work fine and do the damage you would expect. So far you have the standard arsenal (pistol, shotgun, assault rifle and so on...) some elements like the leaping over chest-high walls move get buggy sometimes but work mostly. Cover mechanics is pretty much like in mass effect 2 but feels a bit more stiff. The game have promised me some "powers" later on but i havent gotten that far into it yet. Overall the gameplay is good but needs to be polished slightly before being great.

Sound:
Voice acting is fine and actually better than a lot of full-priced titles. Its not great but it gets the job done. The guns sound like you would expect them to and nothing really stands out. I could not get the sound to work on my USB headset but HDMI output worked fine.

Graphics:
It looks like an Unreal 3.0 game. But because it's on pc only the textures are noticeably higher resolution than most ported games. It ran smooth most of the time on my notebook at max settings

Overall:
So far this looks like a good investment, especially if you have some friends to play co-op with since the AI is not that bright. Story seems like it could be interesting but i need more time to play it before i can make any conclusions about that.

Specs:
2,53Ghz C2D
4GB DDR3 RAM
Geforce 9800m GTS

Hope this helps you decide if you should buy or not :)

Useful already. I had expected this to be a GoW clone, but since GoW2 is not on PC (damn you Epic/MS) this might be fine. I would like the story to be above average, but since I can entertain myself enough with RFG's story I guess it shouldn't be a hard feat. The mostly Co-Op thing had me worry, since I doubt my RL friends will get this, but I guess I'll live after being able to accept L4D's bot support.

I bought it, played for around 1 hr and basically don't want to load it again. I was going to buy 2 copies (1 for my friend as well) and I'm glad I didn't. I am a avid shooter player and I give just about any first person or third person game a chance but so far this game is extremely disappointing. I've run into some weird bugs so far that basically stop your mission and make you start over from checkpoint for NO obvious reasons! The shooting is bland as could be and the enemies just stand there until they fall over from a ton of gunfire. This game needs a LOT of fine tuning and patching galore before it'll be passable. The funny thing is I'm usually much more forgiving to small developer games like this but this is just poor. I feel just as disappointed as when I bought M.O.B. (It's called Drug Wars now) and for those of you who knew what a mess that was it should give you an idea about this one. The graphics are nice and I can see some potential but it's got a LOOOONG way to go...

Are you sure it's not your team mate running ahead and dying.
They die when the red circle around the round icon with a cross in it is full. (red ring of death :D)
I'm stuck at a place where this happens over and over because 1 guy runs in and gets himself incapacitated, then dies and I can't save him because there are enemies shooting from all directions and I don't have the time to take them out.
The worst part is the cut-scene which you can't skip that plays when you load the checkpoint.

Game is great, if it works correctly.

Like a lot of people have said, the game has a lot of bugs right now. The worst bug I came across was not being able to res teammates if they're down, which I admit is a pretty bad bug, but the actual gameplay is a lot of fun.

Basically It's gears of war 4 player coop with special abilities. Some powers are cloned but done in a different variation to give each character a different play style. The boss battles are a real thrill too.

Hopefully this game gets patched and not dropped and forgotten like many other pc games these days...

I say get this game if you have friends to play with, it's a lot of fun if you can look past the bugs. Quite the sleeper hit for coop fans.

WaZzUp115
04-09-2010, 10:32 PM
I'd advise anyone to wait before buying this..
I sent a mail to the developers asking them to get more involved with the community and come to these forums, so let's see if they intend to support this game with future updates and patches or if they're just moving on to the Xbox/PS3 which I read will release a year or so after the PC version.
I'm thinking they might use the PC version as a beta test to get feedback and polish the game for the console releases, at least that would mean they would fix and patch the game.

Looks alright but also a bit clunky in movement.

The AI and squad revive system looks to be a bad decision though but for an indie(?) developer's first release(?) it looks quite nice and playable. Needless to say if you want to really play it it looks like you'll have to get a group of friends together and not rely on the AI.

I think i'll buy it soon. It looks to be good for the price, considering it has Co-Op and is only 14.99.

It's pretty but very clunky, many things that need polishing. Sometimes aiming out of cover makes your dude aim at the edge of the cover instead of above it. Cutscenes are unskippable and you are encouraged to play through with different characters so you'll see those unskippable scenes multiple times. Some level designs are confusing, making it hard to tell where you're meant to go next even with the indicator on the radar. In many respects it feels like they thought they were making a console game.

So far he has only played a little over an hour/hour and a half in SP and says 7.5 to 7.8 out of 10 and having a good time. Without the occasional glitches he says it would be a solid 8. A fun little mix of a beta GEARS1/Mass Effect/DeadSpace/Doom3. He is running this on a P4 3.2 Ghz, 2GB ram, 8600GTS 256, win XP. Solid frame rate. A cheap and fun little filler game.

04-13-2010, 12:02 AM
Not that bad. Pretty buggy and the animations are so bad that they're actually funny. Single-player campaign is really difficult with your suicidal AI "buddies" (if you can call them that). I was going to make a Jericho reference - seeing as this game is also by a Spanish developer - but decided not to.

Compared to similar shooters like Gear of War and Kane & Lynch, the gameplay is the usual 'hold wave in cover', 'stay in cover', 'pop out of cover for a second and go back in for a minute' and 'cover the cover' and 'shoot the head'. The AI is the secondary (and sometimes primary) reason for your failures, so be careful in SP.

One other outstanding major issue is with the coding. Triggers, scripts and controls are very shoddy and sometimes don't respond. Really, if your controls of all things are buggy, either you had an uncle in the industry who got you there, or you granted sexual favours for your lecturer back in college or your team chemistry was horrible and you had a difficult time during the development, because I'm well aware of the changes this game had to go from 1st to 3rd person and the artistic changes. But for the sake of whatever good is in this world, patch this game up (I'm also open to all sob stories).

I see there is some love and care put into this game. Despite the hint of the usual shooter generics, there are some areas that the game shines, such as the weapon selection mechanic, with the same type of weapon coming with separate pros and cons.

I would suggest that you play this game in co-op, preferably with a friend. Expect strange behaviour from the server mechanics. You'll have people just randomly barging in your password-protected servers. Be prepared for that and change your passwords frequently.

Speaking of shooter. Why isn't there a Warhammer 40K shooter with space marines? :(
