7.7 / 10Combined Score
The controls are terrible and unchangable, everything feels really unnatural and akward, this is not even comparable to Quake 3 arena, i sold this game within a week of buying it
Too some it all this game isn't that great it's pretty awful at that i only bought it because of how much i love FPS's and i was totally disappointed there was great potential in this game and it was wasted
Most of the arenas are tiny, and the one player game is too short. The missions are nearly all the same...
Outtrigger is a first (or third) person shooter with the same gameplay as Quake III Arena. The graphics are detailed and excellent, but the game is too short. Sure there are 45 missions, but the game can be beaten in less than half an hour. Even worse, the PAL version (Europe) does not support online play.

This isnt the best 1st person shooter I've ever played, though it is better than Quake III (I think). The game play is very simular to Quake except for the weapon functions and map size. The best thing about Outtrigger is probably the multiplayer mode, you can play in teams or in a free for all deathmatch, choosing between time or point limits and a not so great handicap mode which gives the less experienced players a chance to win. After all this greatness the game is spoilt by the 1 player mode. To be honest I think the training modes are pointless because in mission mode you are told what to do anyway. The mission mode is story mode without the story, you basicly go around blasting the hell out of anything with a virtua-cop style ring around it. The gameplay is lasting in the fact that every set of missions you complete you unlock a new character, map and weapon.
This is a great game for the D...
