Warhammer Vermintide: My thoughts so far.

1 post in this topic

Greetings

So I have been playing the early access beta for a couple of days now.

The game have a lot of potential, is real fun when everything is running smoothly and is a great evolution to the left4dead formula.

BUT! In its current state I saw a lot of problems that should have been fixed by now. Among these are numerous AI bugs, glitches and exploits, random frame rate dropping, game crashes and balance issues.

It also seems like if you don't have a really good PC you might encounter these problems more regulary. Me and a friend played the game over the weekend. He had a monster gaming PC that could run everything on the highest quality, while I had a laptop that ran everything on low (it is also quite powerful for a laptop so the game requires some muscle). He ran the game smoothly, never experiencing frame rate drops or crashes. For me it was pretty much random. At one moment I ran the game completely fine, then later I would get weird frame rate issues and sometimes the game would lag so badly it was barely playable (luckily this only happend once).

We also brought in two other friends. They barely managed to play from the moment they started playing. Took a couple of games with them tonight. For one of them the game was now working fine, while for the other one it worked fine for a time then she got multiple crashes after crashes until she gave up for the night. Both of them were also playing on laptops, but not quite as powerful as mine.

So if you are thinking of picking up the game. I will say it is a great game, but it is quite buggy in its current state. If you own a very good gaming PC you shouldn't have that much problems. Even for me the game was playable most of the time and you can jump back into a game again if you crash or DC, granted you have one of your teammates in your friend list. Most of these problems will most likely be fixed in the upcoming weeks/months.

So here's my current score of the game.

The game in its current state 6/10

The game when all these problems are fixed 7.5/10

Thanks for reading this post :)

PS: Does Joe plan on reviewing this game? I know it is kinda a minor release, but it is not that many games big games coming out this month. Besides, it's Warhammer! One of the best fantasy universes out there:)
