Do you like strategy games with a retro atmosphere? Although there indeed are several that we can install on our computers, the problem with some of them is that they have integrated advertising beyond being free. That's why we like to focus on the different open-source titles, and in this particular case, we wanted to talk about UFO 2000.
We are in the presence of a completely free and open-source game, so if you know, you can even get to make some advanced modifications. It also can be enjoyed on most current operating platforms. UFO 2000 was released in 2004, and if you want to play it on your PC right now, you should know that you must first install UFO: Enemy Unknown, the mother title released a decade earlier.
Suppose you already have UFO: Enemy Unknown. In that case, you'll see that the installation process for UFO 2000 is quite simple since the system will synchronize the contents of both proposals to let you access the latter directly. In any case, you should know that on the developers' web page, you can find tutorials that will guide you through these steps.
How it works
Well, UFO 2000 offers, once installed, two main game modes, one thought for those users that either does not have an Internet connection at hand or do not want to be using their bandwidth to have fun. This mode is called Hotseat and consists of a confrontation between two players, who will have to share the same computer to carry out their challenges.
On the other hand, UFO 2000 also has a second mode, Multiplayer, in which the game offers us to connect to its servers, in principle, to perform Player vs. Player or Team vs. Team challenges, but online. As we always say, every time we face this dilemma, fun online alternatives are usually much more attractive than those that do not use an Internet connection.
Therefore, in a case like us you prefer the Multiplayer Mode , you should know that UFO 2000 has several internal modes, the classic ones in this type of title, which have to do with exterminating the opposing team, reaching the end of a particular time with more players alive than the opponent, stealing an objective that is in our opponent's field, etc. As far as game modes are concerned, don't worry because there is no lack of them.
For all these missions, you can count on a team of up to 15 soldiers and from there down, with the possibility of focusing primarily on the character you have chosen, not only to choose one whose characteristics are adapted to what you are looking for but also to take the time to find an armor to match the circumstances.
Beyond that, UFO 2000's sceneries are varied, and you'll encounter enemies even in places where you least expect them, so you'll have to be careful with your movements. We can already tell you that you'll see death too quickly at the beginning.
About the graphics of UFO 2000, we have to say that they are in line with the demands and requirements of the title, which are minimal. As we were saying, this is a game released a long time ago, especially its original version, and that automatically transforms it into a retro or vintage type game. If you are demanding graphics, it would be best to look for another option that is more in line with your taste.
The best thing
For a title that has been somewhat forgotten, it maintains excellent validity regarding the variety of game modes and all the internal elements that can be found in each battle. If you value these aspects of a video game beyond the aesthetic, you can have a great alternative here.
Here we are going to be perhaps somewhat unfair, and is that starting from a game with years and years of existence, we can not ask too much, but the graphics of UFO 2000 are even more obsolete than those of other titles of those times. The visuals are a disadvantage if the story and gameplay options are not bad.
In summary, UFO 2000 is a good game, more recommendable for those who have already tried their luck with this kind of title than for those who have never before had an approach to a type of fun that at times seems exhausting. Its low consumption of system resources our PC can transform it into an entertainment alternative that we should not discard to be able to have fun with an old computer.
