Cross Fire - Free PC Game Review

Cross Fire - Free PC Game Review - Free PC Gamers - Free PC GamesCross Fire is a free shooter that may look outdated, and graphics really aren’t its strongest point. Suba Games neglected this particular aspect (or couldn’t do better) and tried to focus on what makes a first-person shooter compelling.

And so they drew inspiration from the mythical Counter-Strike. A lot of it.

You’re forgiven to think of it as just another clone of Valve’s classic game, since it looks and plays a lot like it. The good news is that it does a few things well, featuring addictive gameplay that manages to grab you for hours on end. That is, of course, if you can deal with the average graphics. It’s best suited for those who don’t own a powerful computer, but that’s no excuse in this day and age.

Players can choose from three squads: U.S Special Weapons And Tactics (S.W.A.T), British Special Air Service (S.A.S), or Russian O.M.O.H. However, there’s not a whole lot of customization to do.

Almost all of the modes are team based, except Free For All: Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, Elimination and Ghost Mode. Team Deathmatch and Elimination are pretty much straightforward MMOFPS fare, and Search and Destroy is based on planting C4 explosives (and the other team defending their targets). Ghost Mode is a bit different, with one of the teams partially invisible (the Ghosts) and armed only with knifes, and the other team fully visible but with all their weapons.

The maps are few (less than a dozen) but somewhat diverse, occasionally requiring different approaches. Some have huge open areas practically begging for snipers, while others are filled with debris, crates, rocks and all kinds of protection. But take note: the design is far from perfect, players are running to their favorite spots like there’s no tomorrow.

Killing and generally winning results in experience points and increasing military rank. The best players will have access to better weapons and rake in more in-game cash, which can be used to buy superior equipment. As is usual with this kind of free games, there is an online store where you can buy weapons and other stuff with real money, giving you a quick edge over other players. However, the matches don’t feel too much unbalanced and there’s still fun to be had.

Drawing inspiration from a classic can backfire, and it sure did on Cross Fire (no pun intended), at least in some aspects. If you’re going to design your game based on a ten year-old masterpiece, make sure you realise you don’t need to make the visuals look like they are that old! The Ghost Mode is a nice addition and gameplay is generally fast and frantic and with no noticeable lag, but Cross Fire needed more modes (regular Deathmatch), maps, and something to keep players motivated. Overall, it’s a nice, mindless shooter that looks like it’s 1999.
