Okay, I'd like to do a review on one of my personal favorite games on BYOND. Space Station 13. There have been times when I only got on BYOND just to play SS13. It's very interactive and there are plenty of things you can do in this game.
* Gameplay - 9 *
SS13 is a round base RP taking place in a space station. There are modes to choose from:
-Secret (Random Mode)
-Meteor (Survive a Meteor Shower)
-Traitor (Stop the traitor, or if you are him complete your objectives)
-Monkey (The crew has been infested with a strange disease that turns them into monkeys, stop them or join them)
-Nuclear (The Syndicate have invaded SS13, stop them before they blow up the station)
* Presentation - 7 *
Most of the icons are pretty well iconed, though some of them could be improved, but I'm not going to complain. The hud is very nice as well, though it's very complicated, but you'll get use to it. Just take the time to learn and try asking for help if you need it.
* Originality - 10 *
It is the most original and oldest games on BYOND that's still played today. There is no other game that compares to it. Embrace yourself for one hell of an experience.
* Community - 3 *
It's hard to rate the community considering several people can be assholes. It usually depends on which server you play on and how strict the admins are. Overall most of the players suck and tend to ruin the RP.
* Wrap-Up *
It's always been my favorite game on BYOND. Even for strict players it sometimes gets hard to follow to rules when you just want to beat the hell out of a complete idiot with a toolbox. Overall, I'll give it a 10, just because it was programmed so well and the idea of it was pretty great.
