Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Battlegrounds is the first on-line, 3-D, multiplayer fighting game. One Must Fall: BattleGrounds represents a serious change in the philosophy of making fighting games. Instead of 2 players facing off in a small space, Battlegrounds features up to sixteen simultaneous players in huge arenas, fighting in team battles or all-out brawls!

Our goal is to free you, the player, from the restrictions of the past, and allow you to fight the way you've always wanted to. Just like your favourite martial-arts movies, you can go toe-to-toe with several opponents, use nearby objects as weapons, and integrate terrain and hazards into your fighting strategy.

We've missed an important detail: you get to do all this while piloting a huge robot.

Sometimes it's hard finding somewhere to park the thing, but overall it's worth it for the insane weapons systems and top-secret technology. There's nothing quite like opening a miniature black hole to consume your opponents, or shooting out a stream of napalm the width of a 4-lane highway.

You pilot your 'bot using a neural link, so you don't need to worry about an airbag going off in your face everytime a punch or kick slips past your defences. And best of all, you aren't liable for any dents and scrapes - after all, your sponsors are paying you to test their technology. Even if you get completely trashed, they'll replace your 'bot for the next match. Could it get any better?

Review

One Must Fall: Battlegrounds is a solid mech fighting game that knows where its priorities are. This game was built for multiplayer. Sure, there's a half-baked single-player mode, but it clearly exists only to train players to survive the online chaos. The game has arenas that can support up to 16 players clawing and kicking their way through a futuristic battle royale. This title uses many of the tired conventions of the fighting genre, but manages to keep them interesting with great graphics, clean gameplay, and the potential to cause a lot of damage to a lot of people.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Must Fall to Revive Genre March 26, 2003
For the past several years, the PC Gaming industry, and in particular the first tier publishers, have shunned the PC Fighting genre due to a lack of market in the early days of the platform. Over time, this lack of content and games has forced many game sites, both online and in print, to stop recognizing fighting games as a spearate genre altogether, grouping them instead with action games in terms of content and reviewing procedures.
One Must Fall:Battlegrounds, in development by Panama City Beach Florida-based Diversions Entertainment, may finally be the groundbreaking game to change all that, re-igniting interest in PC fighting and introducing the world of gamers to the first ever truly multiplayer 3D internet fighting experience. For the past year and 5 months, I have enjoyed the opportunity to play this game as it has developed from a OpenGL-based "rough cut" to the more refined 85% completed Direct3D product that currently plays in a beta pool that has grown to over 400 members.
When first introduced to the One Must Fall game, the first and most striking thing to be recognized is the graphical beauty this game serves up as it pitches together 90 foot bots in gigantic arenas. From the animated fire sparkling aroudn the top of the ring in the fire pit, to the starry night sky twinkling above pharoahs fire, to the glistening beauty winking up from the frozen pierced steel planking that forms the upper structure of the iceberg, this game delivers crystal clear textures, scalable high resolution, crisp colors, beautiful original particle effects, and a robust reflections system. This Direct3D based engine demands a Transform and Lighting capable video card but is sufficiently optimized to allow even low to mid end gamers to play albeit with some lower graphical settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars The wait is almost over!! April 24, 2003
As one of the beta testers, I have to say that the wait between OMF 2097 and OMF: BattleGrounds is well worth it!! OMF:BG is fully 3D and it looks outstanding. If you were a fan of the first OMF game, then you will be a fan of this one. You might have seen some screen shots of the game, but not all the screen shots serve the game justice. The demo is coming out soon, so don't base your judgement on the game by the screen shots and what other people are saying, but on the demo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game December 11, 2003
By Zelig
I've only played the limited test of this game, with 3 out of the 8 HARs, and 3 (+practice) of the 12 arenas, but I can say it's already one of my favorite games ever.
The graphics and sounds are great, but it's the gameplay where OMF really shines, there's no other game I've played that gives as many options and fun in any type of game resembling OMF.
There are a few things wrong with the information here though:
1. The developer is Diversions Entertainment, Tri Synergy is only the North American Co-Publisher.
2. The game is not limited to 6 players, if your hardware supports it, you can play with 20+ players online!
3. The game is only for Windows PC at the moment, not Macintosh.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a great game. But not for the Mac (yet). December 12, 2003
The platform's wrong it's a PC based game, maybe X-Box, not Mac. ... Beside that - simply great. Check their website [...] for more infos. It's the successor(not sequel) to OMF 2097 - different, but just as great.
