The Confrontation Review
Last Updated: 2015-07-28 05:37:56
This is basically a board game online, it has elements of Risk and Hero Quest well if any of you remember board games, it’s what people played before we had consoles and computers, thankfully now we don’t have to be in the company of other people anymore to play games and can sit alone in our underwear killing people with a control pad and satisfying blood thirsty graphics, rather than having to use our stupid, boring imaginations like days gone by.
That being said The Confrontation is something of a throw back to those classic old board games and the card playing system does make it feel like it would work better as a board game, not to say it’s not enjoyable but as a single player game it loses it’s appeal rapidly, it can be hard to find any other people connected to the server so I am not able to say whether the multiplayer mode is more exciting.
There are many games of this ilk on the market at the moment and whilst The Confrontation is a free game so you can have no complaints about the price there is just not enough of an element of gameplay to keep this interesting whilst playing solo.
The music and sound effects are atmospheric and the graphics are nice but The Confrontation just doesn’t bring the fun like a fantasy game should do.
It may appeal to those who are really in to all things fantasy, but it’s certainly a game I think would be more enjoyable with other people playing rather than playing an elaborate card game against the computers AI.
It is worth bearing in mind that The Confrontation is billed as a digital board game adaptation and that this is still the beta version of the game so perhaps a few tweaks can be made to make it a little more exciting and worth playing online.
