Welcome to a mini review of a Linux game ! If you don't know, Linux is making strides in becoming a great, open platform for gaming, either with natives titles such as the one I am reviewing or with the help of a translation layer like Steam Proton or Wine to run Windows games with good performance.
Interstellar Marines is a sci-fi atmospheric early-access FPS set in the near future where mankind has conquered another solar system.
You're being trained on various scenarios to become an elite force called the Interstellar Marines.
The game is based on the Unity engine and is very pretty to look at while also running smoothly, there's both several single players missions already implemented and a tiny but active community around the multiplayer parts of the game.
The main selling point of the game is definitely its atmosphere with 9 varied biomes to fight on (in the "Wargames" part of the game), day/night cycles and different weather conditions.
The accent is also put on gunplay realism with lean left/right feature ala Rainbow Six, decreasing damage depending on range, stealth and a great sound direction. The AI works well and is a force to be reckoned with.
The game has a kind of troubled development phase since it's in the works since 2013 (It's actually one of the oldest early access titles on Steam !) but at its current price, the game is really worth a shot if you like sci-fi, FPS and aren't afraid of early access games.
Graphics : 8.5/10 - It's pretty !
Gameplay : 8/10 - Very solid gunplay and immersion, fun co-op
Content : 5/10 - It's an early access title with slow development pace
Overall value per $ : 10/10 - Pretty cheap for what it packs !
Final rating : 7.8/10 - Approved !
