Style Over Substance in Satellite Reign
Unlike the iconic predecessors, Satellite Reign is not divided into separate missions. By structure, it resembles rather modern designs with open world: the player can move without restriction in the city of impressive dimensions, and perform tasks in definite locations.
Herewith, night metropolis looks very impressive. Using simple techniques, the authors have created a stunning image of a dark future, which is highly competitive with Deus Ex: Human Revolution and a series Shadowrun from Harebrained Schemes and in some ways even surpasses them.
Of course, it is not only the artist's skills. The picture seems so convincing because the world in Satellite Reign carefully imitates life: the residents roam in the streets and cars scurry, the police catch criminals, clashes between different groups break out without the intervention of the player. In the alleys of this anthill it is equally interesting to zigzag trying to escape from pursuers or think through a plan of upcoming operations.
