One Must Fall: Battlegrounds demo

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Ten years after the release of the PC fighter One Must Fall 2097, this robot-themed game returns with a 3D version that allows up to 16 online players to blast each other with an array of punches, kicks, and special and super attacks. With three of eight robots, a decent training mode, and multiplayer gameplay, the demo gives you a great chance to learn what this fighting game is all about.

In a sci-fi future, a popular sport involves "pilots" who control HARs (human-assisted robots) in arena-based battles. Pilot abilities involve stamina, focus, and other intangibles, whereas HARs are differentiated by attacks and special moves. A fairly simple attack system uses four keys for left and right punches and kicks. You can use directional, evade, and jump keys in conjunction with regular attacks to create special and super attacks, which depend on energy status. Throws and counterattacks also are possible, but back attacks are not, which is especially unfortunate in multiplayer battles.

The 3D, interactive environments are good fun, although graphics and sound are only so-so. Controlling your robot via keyboard is difficult (one reason why PC fighters are so rare); a game controller works much better. Although the fighting system doesn't hit the mark completely, One Must Fall: Battlegrounds succeeds with a unique premise and balanced gameplay.
