Escape from Tarkov is an online game, developed by Battlestate Games and released in 2017. The game combines elements of the first-person shooter, RPG, and MMO genres, offering the gamers hardcore cooperative experience.
Gameplay + Story: Hardcore
The events of the game take place in an imaginary city Tarkov, which used to be a special economic zone between Europe and Russia, but now is torn by war. The story mode is divided by scenarios, which you can complete in a cooperative multiplayer.
In the game, you are able to raid different areas of Tarkov. During a raid, you are able to loot locations, fight AI enemies and other players. There are several things that make Escape from Tarkov an extremely hard game. First of all, if you die during a raid, you lose all the equipment you brought and found. Second of all, there are dozens of realistic mechanics connected with weapons, weather, and the health conditions of your character. The ballistics are realistic, the guns have dozens of modifications, and there are a lot of different usable items, which are helpful in different conditions. This game is far from being easy to learn and hard to master. It is just hard.
Graphics and Controls: Realistic Without Optimization
Graphics are the second strong point about Escape from Tarkov. In such a realistic game, you would expect realistic graphics to reach full immersion, and the game offers you that. The lights and reflections are realistic, the landscapes are beautiful, and the locations are densely filled with objects. The animations are pretty smooth, and the atmosphere reminds of the Stalker series. Another pleasant thing about the graphics of Escape from Tarkov is that the locations are pretty diverse. There are open-air battlefields and various buildings, making the experience not so repetitive. However, the game lacks optimization and won’t properly run on average desktops, not to mention running on maximum settings.
The game is impressive and will definitely appeal to realistic shooter fans and fans of the Stalker series due to a similar atmosphere and setting. We recommend trying it out, or at least watching some videos or live streams to decide whether it is worth playing. And do not forget to check the system requirements before purchasing, as the game is not so optimized.
Pros : Realistic graphics and diverse locations;
Realistic mechanics of weapons and injures;
Hardcore gameplay, in which dying results in loosing gear.
Cons : A lot of work to be done with optimization;
Too hard to start due to the number of items and mechanics.
