5.0 out of 5 stars Strife (CD ROM-P.C.) June 10, 2005
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This RPG Game is unlike most other Doom type games. It is not totally linear. Your decisions determine the final outcome of the game. (There are three possible endings for this game.) And unlike Doom style games, you can return to previously conquered areas to retrieve items you may not have been able to carry before. (Like Med-Paks, ammo, etc.) There are even different ways of entering the same areas. (Without using cheat codes.)

This is not a game you can win in one night. Above all, DO NOT BE HASTY WHEN SPEAKING TO THE CHARACTERS OR LISTENING TO THE COMMENTS OF "BLACKBIRD"! If you do so, you may miss VITAL information, necessary to the winning of the game!

I LOVE this Game! (I have had it since 1999, and I STILL play it!)

5.0 out of 5 stars overlooked FPS of the 90's August 23, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is probably the best FPS i've ever played. It was released in 1996 i believe. I was young.. like 7th or 8th grade maybe, but I loved the game. It uses the DOOM engine, but includes RPG elements. Not all areas/enemies are hostile, and will only attack you if YOU attack them or townsfolk first. Thus making your temper and style determine how difficult your journal will be. You may also talk to various people throughout the game and pick different ways to answer. The game is great and has a memorable soundtrack aswell. I really wish they would have made a sequel to this one. A classic of the 90s

4.0 out of 5 stars If Deus Ex were more like Doom... May 12, 2012
I first came upon mention of Strife when reading of games a certain Doom source port engine ran. After looking into it, I found that Strife was one of a disappointingly few games which combines the two best video game genres, FPS and RPG. What's here can keep Doom fans satisfied while enhancing the experience a little more.

Unlike Doom, the plot plays a central role in determining what happens in the game. While it's a rather generic story of post-apocalyptic struggle between religious fanatics and a rebel group, it creates a setting thanks to the presence of NPCs which talk to you, and does take some interesting twists as the game progresses. There's also a limited upgrade system which increases your health and ammo count, and an inventory system which is handy enough to work automatically to heal you if you take too many hits, or present an object you need to retrieve for some reason. Yet, you have to equip your biosuit manually, which doesn't make much sense.

At it's core, the gameplay is largely similar to Doom in that you'll be spending most of your time shooting enemies. Even though you'll have various missions which take you to enemy bases to find and/or destroy objects, or else find and\or rescue\kill people, you'll be spending most of your time shooting it out with various human and robotic foes. Like all games of this type, you'll start out with nothing, and gradually gain access to more powerful weapons, including some true devastators. Spare ammo is tight though, so don't be afraid to spend money at the weapons stores to buy more because you'll certainly acquire more gold than you need, especially if you find certain secret areas. Yes, they are not as prevalent as Doom, but they still exist.

Still, level progression isn't totally linear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game November 20, 2009
By Tomas
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ever since I tried the demo for this game back in the mid-90's, I've wanted to play through this game. And I'm glad that I finally did. I was always just intrigued at the idea of some role-playing elements being added to Id's first Doom engine, like the shops and actually interacting with NPC's. Sure it may not be enough to sell most people, since it's really just Doom reskinned with those couple new features, and call me crazy, but I really enjoyed it, especially with Zdoom.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best game ever. July 23, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I still play this once a year at least. Compelling story (with multiple paths and endings!), great characters, unique and original weapons (with multiple ammo types and firing modes!), and the best and most complex level design I have ever seen in an FPS... the architecture in these levels is wonderous, with indoor and outdoor locations spanning several miles at points (even if the coloring is a bit on the drab side.) I also have to mention how cool the enemies are. Each one has a specific purpose and personality in combat, and their death animations are epic (especially when they're set on fire or explode and tumble out of their suits). The game has RPG elements in that you can buy supplies at store locations and customize conversations with NPCs (some of which fight beside you.) These elements, like the stealth missions, can almost always be engaged or disregarded at your leisure. All of this on the DOOM engine!

Strife was a crucial part of my gaming childhood. I played the demo over and over and when the full version fell into my posession I almost ruptured. This is the best game ever.
