  1. The story had unprecedented depth for a shooter. The interconnected levels are in some ways like Half-Life. The game was spoiled for me when I couldn't progress further after foolishy killing the Oracle early before confronting him in the dialogue, and had to start from the beginning, and I didn't attempt it again for more than a year. This did not simply result in an ending. The music is simply associated with an area. Calm music for the town, gloomy for basement or caves, uptempo for big intense battles. It's decent.

    GZdoom is the best Windows port. It presents a plethora of options among which I can set: monitor's native display mode, texture filtering none – mipmap linear, OPL3 emulation with 4 or 8 processors, and transparency supersampling to 8x in nvidia. These settings clean up any shimmering and clicks, while otherwise remaining authentic to DOS style.

  2. yeah, it's an old classic, really the last game that uses the Doom engine, the engine had no potential in 1996, but this game still look damn great! it has multiple endings (sadly, they are all short, at least the art is great), awesome weapons, now with the source port you can even use mouse aiming, which is great.

    the level desing is mostly great, however, it has something that i don't like. mazes. go play and see what i am talking about. but on the other side, all levels in this game connect and make a giant world (it is not that giant but it feels like it is). I haven't seen anything like until i played this for the first time (probably 7 years ago on a windows 98). it is one of my all time favorites (yup, just like Doom 1/2) not just because it has amazing gameplay, but because it is (probably) the only FPS-RPG i've played/i'll play.

  3. on a side note another would be a game called Killing Time its a game iv asked alot of people on and yet no one replys on it its a decent game hard if you are basic to doom games but at times can be quite a challenge sorry for spaming here.

  4. I agree, Strife was just marred because of Quake, and while I've never played Strife, as an active member of the Doom community, it doesn't have as huge of a following as other Doom Engine games, such as Heretic and the like. At least I finally got to see this, as I myself have never heard much of Strife, and was glad to see it on here. Great video, as always. 🙂

  5. Wooo Strife its been a wile since your review on it was taken off but as i said before its quite rare to find anyone playing now or even heared of it. As for another game if you want to review try the Decent games they were quite good but everyone i beleaved prefered games like Wing commander thus kinda makeing Decent a little rare to old gamers.

  6. This was the Deus Ex of it's time in many aspects. The game has more than one way to approach an objective and different choices during key storyline point, that instantly makes it replayable. And a lot of ways to approach or avoid situations most of the time these aren't dictated to you but trough exploration you'll surely be rewarded. The game looks good for what it is in my opinion. Quake even though I like it's grungy outdated dark gothic look, doesn't have the same visual appeal that 2.5D engines did at the time. I think you made a big mistake comparing Strife to Quake unfavorably so. Quake despite the added verticality in level design, game design is a slightly simplified version of Doom. Strife is more an FPS adventure game with an actual story that's influenced by player choice. And they all have the same clash of cyberpunk high-technology with a dark medieval setting. I think it makes it distinct in that Krull sort of way.
    BTW! Tim Willits was a level designer for this game, and I'm absolutely sure that his work collaboration on this influenced him as the creative director on Rage.
    I mean c'mon, the premise is almost identical.
