Sierra 7 – Kongregate Helper’s OFFICIAL Review
Sierra 7 is an intense first person shooter made in Flash. “Made in Flash!?” you say? Yes, of course and this is by far one of the best, if not the best first person shooter that you’ll find on popular flash portals. This game plays much like you favorite first person shooters (FPS) such as Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Halo, ect. In Sierra 7 you can use multiple weapons, use night-vision goggles, use breaching charges and more! The best part is that everything is fully animation and the game appears to be using some sort of 3D engine to make the environment around you which really spices up this “unique to flash portals” game. Here’s a word from the developer:
A flash first person shooter that pins you in a world-wide war between private militia companies out for government-targeted violence & carnage. You are the 7th special operative in the Unit “Sierra” which is tasked to neutralize the militia forces with your superior skills & tactics.
I played through a majority this game in veteran and the hardest part of the game for me was simply the lag produced from this game, which is simply a huge game. The cursor seemed to lag to me and it took a while for me to get off a shot when I entered a room. If you computer experiences issues with lag I suggest that you turn the game to low quality. Even my computer needs to convert to low quality to keep up with this game and my computer is on the faster side. For the most part the levels were pretty basic. You walked into a couple of rooms, killed some people and got out as fast as you could. Sometimes, at the most inconvient times you’d run out of any and then you’re character would step out into the next room. I never actually died though, for the few seconds that I was defenseless. I took a couple hits – I though I was going to die – but I never do die. A majority of the levels remained the same difficulty as the last one and I ended up cruising through the levels.
The only thing that made this game not boring is that you were constantly in new location. You were on the end of your seat for a majority of the game. Is the next enemy going to pop out now? Is the swarm of enemies going to appear in the next room? Those two questions flooded your mind and when one did occur you had to be on top of your game and react quickly. I also loved how this game was a first person shooter. I’ve maybe seen one or two first person shooters on a flash portal and to see one done so perfectly was not only a surprise but quiet a delight. I am constantly playing Call of Duty at home and to see a first person shooter in Flash was magnificent – you could only imagine my enjoyment of playing it as I could see many similarities between the two games. One is a perfectly function FSP shooter with amazing graphics praised by many people, including myself, along with the perfect gameplay and the other is Call of Duty. Just kiddin’, but seriously, both, Sierra 7 and Call of Duty are great games in my opinion. Am I putting Sierra 7 up with other XBox giants? No, but simply comparing the two games based on how similar the gameplay really was. The only real difference that in Sierra 7 you are not allowed to directly make your own decisions, but instead your characters walks around for you and you are allowed to shoot the enemies and plant explosive charges on doors, ect, while in Call of Duty and other FPS for the XBox and other systems you are allowed to walk around by yourself and literally act as the character.
Sierra 7 has some of the best graphics that you will find around Flash portals. These 3D graphics are simply superb. I loved how the graphics made you feel as if you were there. Like I had mentioned, in Sierra 7 you were constantly on the edge of your seat, just waiting for the next enemy to appear, yet at the same time you want to avoid them yourself. I also love 3D art because it can make you feel as though you are in the building, the hallways narrow and your curiosity peaks as you come up to a door. I thought that stickmen were pretty mediocre for how amazing the rest of the game looked, but then again if you mess up one facial feature on a human the entire art can go down the drain as the user will be looking a deformed enemies instead of brave soldiers or terrifying terrorist. The gun art was also rather impressive and the movement of your gun as you aimed around the room made the game seem even more realistic. I didn’t really care for the black and white. Actual color would have been much better in my opinion.
There was no music in Sierra 7, but the sound effects were amazing. With the combination of guns firing, wind howling and your every footstep echoing through the entire hallway Sierra 7 created the perfect war-like scene in its sound department. The sound effects really added to the realism of the game and made you feel as though you were actually there – bullets whizzing right past your head.
I would say that there was a ton of replay value in Sierra 7, but sure, if you’re also looking for a quick first person shooter on your computer and you don’t want to download a huge game then this is the game for you – just for a quick five – ten minutes of fun. While you can come back to this game every now and then, if you’re a real hardcore game then pit yourself up against the challenges which can be found at the main menu. Doing so will allow you to test your skills in several courses. In this game you may also earn new achievements, which fitting along with the game, in Sierra 7 are called Emblems. These emblems are generally earned by completing difficult tasks while in various maps. As you make your way through the game you can also check out your statistics to see how you compare to other users, or use these statistics to set a goal for yourself.
All in all, Sierra 7 was an amazing first person shooter (or FPS) that played much like some of your favorite first person shooters on the XBox 360 or other systems such as Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Halo, ect. In review, the difficulty was okay. i played through the entire game in Veteran, but you may also bump up the difficulty to Elite if you wish. The gameplay experience was amazing. It was much like CoD or MoH. The only difference was that in Sierra you could on fire for the character. The graphics had to be one of the best part of the game. I loved the 3D models and the artwork in general, but what I didn’t care too much for was the black and white scheme. The replay value was excellent there was a variety of achievements and challenges that you either achieve or participate in along with statistics. Overall, Sierra 7 was magnificent, be sure to play it on Armorgames.com today!
