  • Players can switch between the two main characters at any time during the game to take advantage of each character's strengths as well as combat a sophisticated AI that adapts to the strategies you develop.

Product Description

Behind every war is a truth you were never meant to know. The year is 2025 and the world is shaken by conflicts over the control over dwindling natural resources. The hunger of rival warlords and dictators in underdeveloped countries for advanced weapon systems appears insatiable and the profits of the arms industry have reached new heights. As highly advanced weapon systems, made in the USA, are sighted on in the hands of political enemies on Third World battlegrounds, the US government sends in an ISA agent to find out how these enemies are acquiring arms that are under strict embargo. Cpt. Myra Lee is sent to Mogadishu, where American made weapons have allegedly been employed in combat by Somali military forces against rebel units. In Somalia, Myra meets Cpt. Aron Alvarez, a hard-boiled close combat specialist of US Army's 1st SFOD-Delta, whose squadron is assigned to assassinate Somalia's dictator. Myra and Aron begin working together only to discover that that the seriousness of the whole affair reaches much deeper than just the illegal trade of US weapon systems. A special unit under the codename SHADOW HARVEST is formed within the ISA to reveal the truth. Cpt. Myra Lee and Cpt. Aron Alvarez are made partners in the operational core of this unit and their investigations lead them to various places all over the world. Based on the operations of the Intelligence Support Activity (ISA), with missions ranging from gathering critical intelligence data to covert direct action operations, SHADOW HARVEST features two completely different playable characters; each with very specific and fully fleshed out sets of skills, preferences and abilities. To cooperatively complete covert operations, players may switch between each character at any time, using either Aron's combat abilities or Myra's stealth skills to solve the situation. Employ mechanized weapons to attack enemies from head-on or an invisibility shield to creep through enemy territory undetected.

I've bought a lot of games from under-the-radar developers and am rarely disappointed, so I took a risk on Shadow Harvest. In general if a game is a shooter, RPG or stealth game I will like it. I was especially interested in the stealth portion of Shadow Harvest since that genre is criminally underrepresented today, the last real stealth game I know of being Velvet Assassin, which was average at best. So I bought Shadow Harvest and installed it (it uses Steamworks), ready to give it a fair shake.

What you will notice right away is that Shadow Harvest is ugly and also runs like crap. I have a GTX 480 and an Intel quad core processor (the Q9550). My rig runs Crysis at 50fps on highest settings, it runs Crysis 2 at a locked 60fps. Shadow Harvest on max settings runs at about 15fps, maybe 20, with dips into the single digits. This is not an anomaly with my machine, the Steam forums and other places report the same performance. Putting the settings down to medium and even low does little to help; I even tried 720p on all lowest settings and ended up with 25-30fps. To put it bluntly Shadow Harvest is the most demanding PC game I have ever played, and it looks like a 6 year old console game. For one thing the bloom is out of control, for another there is no real AA and tons of pop-in. Past that the models, textures and general design is bland and simplistic. It's absolutely laughable the game looks like it does and performs like it does.

Moving past graphics we have the gameplay itself. In Shadow Harvest you play a typical army macho man for third-person cover-based shooting sections and a Catwoman-style stealth chick for sneaky missions (either or, at your discretion).

Just don't... Don't... This is one of those things I decided not to look at the reviews for before buying, and I have only taken it out of the box it came in once. Currently it's repacked and sitting on a little wall of shame of things I need to get rid of but haven't got around to yet.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Shadow of a Game November 8, 2012
By H. Le

First, here is the supplement to the inadequate product description:

SYSTEM REQUIREMENT:

OS: Windows XP, Vista, or 7
Processor: 3.2GHz or faster
Video Card: 256MB or better
Sound: DirectX 9 compatible
Memory: 1GB
HD: 8GB HD space
Internet connection required

DRM: Steamworks (Steam's one time online activation with permanent account tie-in DRM scheme)

As for the game, the first thing that will draw your attention is the lackluster graphics. Although I do not play games for graphics, for something that's released in 2011, this game's graphics simply cannot cut the mustard - especially for a game that's trying to be a realistic military shooter. Having said that, I can certainly overlook the graphics for the most part; but there are other graphical shortfalls that are harder to overlook. As other reviewers mentioned, improper contrast and brightness make the dark areas too dark even when I tried to adjust my monitor directly (due to lack of an in-game brightness adjustment capability). Also, the bloom is just so overwhelming that it blurs everything and make the bright areas too bright - which makes the dark area too dark problem worse than ever. Toggle off bloom does improve things a lot. Regrettably, in an annoying way, bloom still kicked in automatically on some occasions when I used the fine aiming feature.

In spite of the bad graphics, performance is fair overall. There are some stuttering on a few occasion, but I did not experienced slowed frame rates as some others reported. In fact, I'd say that the game ran smoothly on my lower mid-range PC. Also, I did not experience the floating and gliding character movement that I saw in some youtube clips. Stability is fair with about 1 crash every 1 to 2 hours.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only runs on my older PC June 2, 2014

Outdated graphics, and a slow and boring storyline, make this a real bore for me. Even with HEX Edit hacks, it still does not run in widescreen of any kind.
