Many gamers are constantly on the prowl for the newest and most advanced games. There has been a major push towards realism especially in the FPS community. AAA games such as Call of Duty and Battlefield have directed their attention more towards an arcade style game with an emphasis on accessibility for new players. Some players however have tastes in more realistic FPS games which reflect warfare and teamwork to a much more advanced scale. Post Scriptum has heard the players call and created an FPS game which gives an intense, realistic and tactical game for player to enjoy.
Post Scriptum is set in World War II and focuses on the European front of the war. Players are dropped into battles of massive scale where teamwork is the only way to survive. Players can assign themselves to an infantry squad, armored section, or logistics section. Each of these plays a critical role in the outcome of the battle.
Infantry is the backbone of any army and without it front lines would not change. Each infantry squad is equipped with riflemen, medics, sappers, marksmen, anti-tank, and machine guns. Each of these classes plays an important role in the success of the squad. Machine guns lay down heavy volumes of fire suppressing any enemy forces in their area while the riflemen can fire much more precise shots and maneuver with much more speed. Soldiers must use cation however as one shot will often lead to the soldier being incapacitated. Medics are very important in this case as they keep the front line manned and firing.
Being a heavy hitter of decisive action, armor is meant to support the infantry and eliminate enemy tanks. Each position in tanks (driver, gunner, commander, and hull gunner) are manned by individual players, putting a heavy emphasis on communication and teamwork. Players need to listen to their commander and work with speed to keep their tank alive and fighting. Although protected by thick armor, tanks are not effective without the support of the infantry. A tank left alone will be quickly outmaneuvered by enemy infantry and destroyed.
Logistics sections are the beating heart of the fight. They bring up important supplies which allow defenses to be erected and forward operating bases to be built which players spawn in. Logistics is great for the player who loves a support role but is not skilled enough to constantly be in the firefight.
Rating – 9.3/10
