|The shooter Skout comes from Germany uses its own adequate
but tremendously slow graphics engine. Even computers with 2 gigahertz
and Geforce 4 can have trouble with the 32bit graphics on high resolutions
and using numerous graphics gimmicks. Some of the buildings have attractive
exterior architecture but the level spaces are quite boring. One is
supported in Skout by a drone whose use is time restricted and not always
available, but she is undestroyable (if too strongly damaged it will
repair itself). The developers did do some things right with Skout -
the graphics are pretty, but on most computers at that time it was barely
playable (even with normal settings, without every extra activated).
The levels are uninspired and the missions also (a lot of run and shoot
only and prisoners free themselves repeatedly). The drone, at first
interesting, irritates by amusing but completely inappropriate comments.
The hero with a constantly bad mood is also not very appealing. Skout
is certainly playable, but does not belong in a compelling 3d shooter
