Okay, this post is actually for my cousin, who is way too lazy to register to the forum and ask the question himself, so he asked me to do it for him. Well, my cousin is a Star Wars maniac, and he has played a lot of Star Wars games, especially those involving lightsaber hack and slash, like Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy, KotOR, KotOR 2, Episode III, Obi-wan, etc. Anyway, at this moment he wants to play something else, that may not be based on Star Wars, but is still a similar game. What I mean by a similar game is that he wants to play a futuristic 3D hack and slash action (with 3rd person perspective, not 1st person, and not FPS either). Also, he only wants the PC format at this moment 'cause he is having a problem with his Playstation lately. I am not aware of any such game, so I was wondering if anybody here can recommend this kind of game for him? Thanks in advance.

Can I recommend System Shock 1 & 2. These games can be set to concentrate on the fighting, and hack & slash elements :karate: :guns: .

I know they are 1st person, but it's late, and I can't think of anything else right now. They are still excellent games. :whistle:



Edit - I think there are a few Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King games that are hack and slash. :Titan:

But Lord of the Rings games are not futuristic, are they?

I told my cousin about System Shock, but I think he still prefers 3rd person perspective. Anyway, thanks. Anything else?

That's a fairly specific kind of game, basically sewn up by Star Wars - maybe he should try something a bit different for a change? There are a couple of mods for UT2004 which are third person fighting ones (Chaos UT features it for instance) but generally not especially futuristic.

Anachronox is a scifi RPG that really quite good and I second the System Shock. Also Deux Ex is good.

That's what I told him too, and he does want something else for a change... at least temporarily (yesterday right after I posted this thread he found out about Lego Star Wars videogame, I think he wants to hunt it down ).

I'll check Anachronox and Deus Ex. Thanks, guys!

Lego Star Wars is meant to be pretty good, if occasionally repetitive.

BAS -

Deus Ex is 1st person. Not third. But it is rather good, so I recommend it.

I suggest trying to ween him/her onto something more strategic. Like the Combat Mission games.

If you can find a copy, then Bioforge is awesome.
