 Tacticular Cancer # Review - Hammer and Sickle Review: HAMMERTIME!
Sat 25 Feb 2006, 1:42 AM When I first caught wind of Hammer and Sickle, I must say I was pretty psyched for the game.
Hammer and Sickle will be incredibly familiar to anyone who ever played Silent Storm, as it started off as a mod for Silent Storm before Nival saw it’s potential and turned it into a full retail game.
All this said, the biggest and most important enhancement that Hammer and Sickle brings to the table is the welcome addition of a non-linear plot structure and abundance of new role-playing options.

 Jolt.co.uk - Online Gaming - Clan Server Rental
Hammer and Sickle takes place at the very start of the Cold War, with you playing a Russian field agent taking on missions against the Western forces and a mystery third party that seems intent on kicking off World War 3 – something all sides consider a bad idea yet are disturbingly willing to do.
The combat is just so tedious, the path finding is a joke and there are only so many cups of tea you can make while waiting for the enemy troops to make up their minds what to do and actually get around to doing it.
With the quite ridiculous difficulty level thrown on top of an unforgiving decision making process, Hammer and Sickle is doomed to stay forever in the bargain bin, and you’d be hard pushed to justify buying it even then.

Takes an interesting concept and hammers it into the ground with a ridiculously high difficulty level and several issues and bugs which should have been resolved before the game shipped.
In the end, Hammer and Sickle was just not fun for me. And for a game, that is not a good thing.

 Hammer & Sickle Preview
Hammer & Sickle is the sequel to the excellent Silent Storm we played last year.
Hammer & Sickle tries to address the shortcomings of the original — such as the pointlessness of the RPG aspects and storyline — while portraying the Cold War from a fresh new Soviet perspective and pushing the boundaries of player freedom.
The main character’s Soviet origins provide a fresh feeling but the game is not egregiously anti-American despite the very firm chill of the Cold War that had descended over the world during the time period in the game.
