ROOT looks great – it has a really stylish aesthetic whilst offering hardcore gameplay. It’s certainly gone for a more old school FPS vibe; check out some of the features:
– Accurate Guns
Your crosshair is literally a dot. No reticule bloom, no accuracy cones, no B.S. Your shot lands where the cursor points.
– Real Stealth
No “crouch for invisibility,” you must tread softly and check your corners.
– Boss Fights
Be prepared for tough, end of level fights. Only truly dangerous enemies are satisfying to defeat.
– Interactive Environment
Objects can be moved, shot, shattered, picked up and thrown.
– Adjustable Abstract Visuals
The inside of a computer is not what you expect. Complete with adjustable color.
– Old School Mentality
This is a game, not a movie. You are in control of all your actions. No QTEs or long animated cut scenes.
– Vaguely Witty Dialogue [On/Off]
Listen to your companion, SHELL, ramble on about various things, which may or may not pertain to the story arc. Don’t care what he has to say? Just turn off dialogue in the options menu.
