Raze is one of the latest online games featured on our site. As it is a very popular free online game and there are still no reviews about it, the author decided to write one, together with some tips to help you win.
Raze offers more ways to play it and, because of this, there will be more reviews about it. This one is written in regard to the human campaign. One of the following reviews will be about the alien campaign and another will tell about game styles and in-game weapons.
Raze is a free 2D shooter game. While most people who commented on this free online game seemed to make a connection between Raze and Halo because of the graphics (yes, Raze borrows some of the character graphics from Halo), it is fair to say that this type of gaming concept was widely introduced by desktop games like Quake 3 Arena and Unreal Tournament (ok, you might want me to declare Unreal Tournament first… I have the same opinion). Raze is undeniably one of the most played of our latest online games.
Just like in every game from the shooter kind, in Raze it is essential for you to comprehend how to use each weapon and to remember the location of health, shield and damage power-ups. Now and again, in Raze you play alone and sometimes you have squad members who help you. Exciting for this king of free game, it even has a plot exposed by unlocking new levels. I won’t tell you much regarding it; play Raze and find out for yourself.
Now regarding the game: the first level of Raze is a tutorial level in which you discover how to to move around, jump, double-jump, collect and change weapons etc. At the end, you have to destroy a weak bot. The next five levels are also very easy (at least I found them that way), therefore I won’t say much about them. If you are an skilled gamer, with decent reflexes, you can just run around and shoot any foe that you stumble upon. With a superior weapon you can get a lot of one shot kills in these levels of Raze.
I found level 7 to be the earliest truly hard one in Raze. Hints: calm down, be patient and aim well. Try to snipe! It does not work anymore to jog around and shoot at everything you see. It gets significant to pick out your weapons well in Raze, because some don’t inflict that much harm. Use the sniper rifle and the rocket launcher for long and medium distance shots and the fire shotgun for close quarter battles. It was during this level (and subsequent to failing it 3 times) that I actually developed a careful strategy. Using the same strategy, level 8 seemed painless (level 8 features the same level design, this time having to fight against zombies – zombies that only look like zombies but have the aptitude to move fast and use weapons just like any other bot you meet). The same can be said about level 9.
Level 10 seemed much harder (everyone starts with Bio Uzis straight away, instead of simple pistols) and chaotic; providentially, the other bots on my side did a good job, while I made no difference:). Level 11 plays on the same map of Raze. I was only somewhat better, and just when getting my hand on a railgun. It is worth mentioning that there is a bright zone on the bottom of the level. It is not a passage, it is an electric arc which kills you, as I happened to discover:p. Level 12 is the third time on the same level (I noticed that Raze levels 7,8 and 9 share the same map, just as 10,11 and 12 do). On this map, it got harder and harder and I had to make a difference to win level 12. I actually managed to do so, so let’s advance to 13. How did I do it? I abused a grenade launcher. The grenades attach to surfaces and to players (!) and deal a great amount of harm in Raze. Usually, I do not like that weapon, but the upper part of the level design made it a fantastic position to stick grenades to enemies by permanently shooting in one direction:D. It might sound lame but, hey, we won!
Level 13 and 14 of Raze have the same level design as level 6, the spaceship interior with low gravity. Level 13 is not very hard but, in level 14, all your squad members are infected and you are on your own against them. It is a classic deathmatch – everybody against everybody. And it is hard. I managed to make it only on the third attempt.
Level 15 is the final fight of this free online game. It is what is called a juggernaught battle. The idea is simple: you have to slay the alien boss. He is a tough guy (with lots of hp) but you get 10 lives to do it. You will see how many it will take you to prevail and finish the human campaign of Raze.
We are glad that a good part of the latest online games have a lot of work behind them and are real high-quality games. Raze is without doubt a very good game which should supply for several hours of fun (and sometimes struggle).
