  • The story of the game is an interesting premise and definitely sits in the B-grade science fiction side of things
  • Sure it's not the best science fiction story ever in a game, and compared to modern games like Mass Effect and Bioshock it is way off the mark
  • I found that adding too much gamma or brightness made the backgrounds look a bit crappy, but retaining the factory settings makes for a visually satisfying game
  • Considering you can get a non DRM copy of this game on good old games for less than ten dollars, I would definitely say it's worth the money

      Up until I saw this game on GOG recently I have to admit that I had never heard of it. The write up spoke of first person shooting action in a science fiction environment, one of my favorite combinations. I really don’t know why the game had eluded me until then but you can rest assured that I brought a copy of it straight away.

      The story of the game is an interesting premise and definitely sits in the B-grade science fiction side of things. It is told through mostly in-game cut scenes and unlike a lot of mindless


      shooters that just set up a premise without following up, CHASER maintains a strong tie to the story throughout the whole game. Sure it’s not the best science fiction story ever in a game, and compared to modern games like Mass Effect and Bioshock it is way off the mark. But keeping mind that the game was originally released in 2003, this can be overlooked for the most part.

      The graphics are good for the age of the game, and being able to set a high resolution with the right patches in place made it look pretty crisp as ...


      • long as you leave the brightness settings alone. I found that adding too much gamma or brightness made the backgrounds look a bit crappy, but retaining the factory settings makes for a visually satisfying game.

        The gameplay itself it decidedly old-school, no hiding in cover to regain your health, no this game requires you to find health packs that are scattered around the floor of the levels along with weapons and ammo. Unlike a lot of newer games that require you to get your ammo anf weapons of the enemies you have just dispatched.

        Considering you can get a

        non DRM copy of this game on good old games for less than ten dollars, I would definitely say it’s worth the money. I played through the entire campaign in the space of around twelve hours, which means this is entertainment for less than a dollar an hour, now that’s good value these days when you think about the fact that if you wanted the same value from a modern full-price game you would have had to have played it for between sixty and one hundred hours… Not likely with today’s first person shooters, unless you play online of course.
