Spirits of Xanadu is a new indie game which has just been released on Steam and we must say we don't really know what to think about it. Developed by two men (Allen Trivette and Lee Williams), this first person adventure/shooter game is a sort of tribute to System Shock, without the RPG aspect. The non textured 3D is reminiscent of a past long gone but that we don't mind really. The same can't be said of the controls when playing with a gamepad, which we strongly advise not to. Some will say it makes sense as it is after all a PC title, and it's true, but since the game is fully compatible with controllers, it's a bit of a shame aiming feels so stiff and awkward. Combat is not particularly interesting anyway, thankfully exploration, though repetitive, is quite atmospheric. Wandering through the corridors of the deserted spaceship Xanadu, you'll find audio logs and strange pages, something we think is the main interest of the game. Check out our videos and make up your own mind about it.
@scoobs0688: Go play multiplayer now and especially the new HORDE. I have played that for so many hours. I am forcing myself toi take a break now lol, it was eating my free time (2 Hours ago)
[url] man, the new micromachines actually looks good. who woulda thunk it. (3 Hours ago)
lol unshited as online competitive? don't make me laugh. (8 Hours ago)
I liked the first one. The cover system works okay in elimination deathmatch. I'm not a fan of sticky cover as a rule though. Especially now that many games have done contextual auto cover that works. (10 Hours ago)
I guess so? It's been a long time since I played one to be fair (10 Hours ago)
Yea.. that's what Gears of War is. (11 Hours ago)
also GOW looked interesting from some of the competitive matches I saw. But lots of weird sticky cover play (12 Hours ago)
