Legend of Alfur: Japan’s Newest First Person Shooter Fires Nothing But Blanks | Kotaku Preview

Kotaku: Last week Kotaku brought you word of The Legend of Alfur, a Japanese-made first person shooter, developed by a small indy game studio using the Unreal Engine. With Japanese-made FPS titles being something of a rarity—especially compared to how many are developed in the West—this seemed the perfect game to check out in more detail. Hoping I had found a diamond in the rough, I went into The Legend of Alfur cautiously optimistic. Sadly, it only took me a few minutes to find out that The Legend of Alfur isn't very good.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sad. Sounds like the story could have been pretty good.

Based on the video the game looked pretty decent for a Japanese indy game that is in a genre barely ever done in Japan. It looked decent enough and seemed to function ok in said video. Why Kotaku would go into a Indy game expecting it to be the next great FPS is beyond me. I mean it's a indy game and it's a indy game from Japan. The fact that it was made as a FPS at all is quite something. It looked pretty interesting and if it's available here I would give it a shot.

Gotta start somewhere, this isn't something they do much. The last one that I can recall was Breakdown on the original Xbox.

Coded Arms should be added as well....
