From the same developers of the hugely popular TrackMania comes a third-person epic, ShootMania Storm. Stepping away from the typically mundane and restrictive features seen in today’s MMOTPS games, ShootMania Storm takes many of the features from TrackMania and ports them into a unique third-person shooting experience.
ShootMania Storm Review
Easily the most interesting aspect to ShootMania Storm is the total customization of the game and mechanics. Similar to TrackMania, players can get directly involved in the games development and progression. Utilizing a number of cutting-edge developer tools, players will be able to create their own levels, game modes, weapons, characters and more. If you’re just looking to jump into the action, you can also download the creations of other players at any time, totally free of charge. This creates an almost endless amount of possibilities for the games development. Not restricted by budget, developer time or publisher demands, players will be able to create content freely, adding a whole new level of depth to the MMOTPS genre.
The combat itself can be compared to Tribe Ascend. It’s very fast paced, offering players a highly skill-based experience, stepping away from the typically “realistic” approach of popular FPS titles such as Call of Duty. Leap across buildings, sprint through fields and attack fortification, it’s all possible in the custom world of ShootMania Storm.
A highly attuned matchmaking system gives both casual players a chance at a fair game, and professional players a chance at some competitive action. Thanks to the huge amounts of customization within the game itself, players can expect a variety of competitions and professional events after ShootMania Storm is released.
