It can be hard for an FPS to stand out these days, but I am loving what Atomic Heart is offering. The Soviet setting, the gore, the strategy, and the whole game, in general, is just so very appealing to me. While I have said this is a first-person shooter, I would say that this is more of an action-RPG than it is a pure shooter and just from looking at the first trailer, you can tell this game is going to be one hell of a wild and crazy adventure.
The Robotic USSR!
I do not want to go into great detail about the plot of Atomic Heart as I think that is going to be one of the strongest points of the game. However, just looking at the basics, you can tell it is an exciting story that is going to have many twists and turns. The game is set in an alternate reality where the USSR has some shady things going on with advanced AI and robotics.
The whole world is on the brink and could face destruction and that is where you come in. I love the Soviet Union/sci-fi setting of the game and think that there are some very cool ideas here. I get a kind of Fallout and BioShock vibe from the way that the story unfolds.
Explore, Create and Destroy
The gameplay as well as the story in Atomic Heart has a kind of Fallout and Bioshock thing going on. There is a great emphasis on exploration here with many areas to check out. I love the different soviet bases that you will be checking out and finding out just what the heck people have been up to. I like the idea that you will want to take your time and explore every nook and cranny to see what is happening, but at the same time, there are these monstrous creatures that will try and stop you.
As well as exploration, gunfights are going to be aplenty. The gunplay looks great and there are some very interesting weapons that you can get. Crafting and modifying weapons is a big part of it too which sounds like a lot of fun.
A Can Of Soviet Cleaning Polish!
I love the presentation of the game, I thought this was going to be rather low-budget, but what a fool I was. Atomic Heart looks great, the different areas in the game will make you want to fully explore them as they look so real and detailed. The enemies in the game are very gruesome and will have you jumping out of your skin when they sneak up on you.
If you like first-person action RPGs then I have no doubt you are going to have one heck of an awesome time with Atomic Heart. The whole game looks incredible and I love that there is a real emphasis on exploration here. I have mentioned these games a few times before, but I do think that Bioshock and Fallout are probably the best comparisons for what is on offer here.
