Swat 4

If you've played this, was it fun? I'm strongly considering getting this one.
>You just saw it on GOG
Yes. So is it fun?

    It's a little dry but if you like the idea of a methodical tactical assault and entry thing, go for it.

      Brother this game is the opposite of dry. It's sopping wet and moist. If you want to see a dry tactical shooter, go look at Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, Spec Ops or any other classic series.
      SWAT 4 has some of the most memorable levels in the genre and some actual stories and characters to go with them.

    Yes I loved playing this masterpiece, I installed the SEF mod and used to play coop with randoms and sometimes friends. There was this Indonesian guy if I remember correctly, he made me download a map pack and we were playing them together with the in game voice commands... Kino times

    I played it like 15 ago and it was a lot of fun. I wish it would be picked up and continued by some studio.
    What would be funny is if they do a modern remake of the SWAT series, some of the missions would be pranks as you assault the homes and rooms of streamers and e-celebs whose viewers called you with false tips.

      The game you're talking about is named Ready or Not, even if it's slightly different

        Damn. Never heard of Ready or Not until today but it looks good. I'll wishlist it on Steam though and hope to catch it on sale.

          If I can say something about Ready or Not is that it used to be the perfect SWAT5 in pre alpha (according to some modder who has access to it) then it became some kind of Swat 4 in early access and when the game released it felt kind of like a mix between SWAT4 and old RainbowSix. strongly advise you to download the No Crack AI (it makes the game more fair and akin to SWAT).

        It doesnt allow you to arrest criminals, i dont consider it a worthy successor without that, even if paintballs were moronic

    I don't know. There are too many games in my GOG library right now. I've heard people saying that SWAT4 is good.
    >just bought Baldur's Gate 3 and Jagged Alliance 3
    When it comes to realistic shooters on GOG i bought Far Cry 2 a few years back and it was fun but i don't really play realistic shooters that much. I mostly play things like Unreal Tournament and Serious Sam.

      >Jagged Alliance 3
      How is that game by the way? I tried XCOM but fell off probably because of the setting more than anything, so I'm looking at this too (not for today, but eventually).

        I've been playing it for only a few missions but i'm loving it so far. Explosives and machineguns are super fun.

          It's pretty good. Not perfect and there's some balance issues, but it has the Jagged Alliance charm in the writing and it's fun, and that's what counts in my books.

          As long as it's fun to play, that's all I care about and it sounds like it is. I didn't expect three games out of this thread (SWAT, Ready or Not, and Jagged Alliance 3), but I'm loving it. Two wishlisted games and one I'm currently buying. Seriously, thanks.

            SWAT 4 is an abandonware since both irrational games and sierra no longer exist.
            Feel free to pirate GoG installer.

              Nah, i'd rather buy it on GOG so GOG has more money for more DRM games.

    What are the previous SWAT games like?
    Why didn’t they make anymore after 4?

      3 was pretty similar to 4, 2 was a pretty neat RTS game. 1 was actually a Police Quest spinoff, staying with PQ's point-and-click format.

        And as for why they never made more, Sierra got killed by Vivendi about a year after the expansion for 4 came out IIRC, and Irrational got bought by 2K and made Bioshock.

    Yeah I like it a lot. I don't think its as dry as people are claiming, there are quite a few atmospheric levels that can get almost kind of spooky. I'd reccomend the SEF mod even for a first playthrough, for the most part it just improves the game.

    SWAT 4 is a lot of fun but it has a couple of design problems.

    The first is that the combat animation sets for your team and the enemies are different, your team operates on the same ruleset as the player but the suspects don't and can turn on a dime and delete your team despite you having the tactical edge.

    The second is that the game has a feature that puts your gun in the low ready position whenever you aim at a non-hostile, this makes it obvious when a suspect is fake surrendering because you don't go into low ready.

      It's amazingly fun, but only if you play with a full squad of friends. The squad AI's not very good from my experience, and will hinder you more than help you

      The first is a major issuse, especially when you're clearing a building with a lot of corners; it's like fighting against auto turret.

    i loved it, but i loved all of the swat games, it can be a little slow at first especially as youre learning,
    but if youre looking to simulate that SWAT experience its one of the only games that will give you that.

    It still holds up pretty great, especially modded.

    It's a great game but only if you don't use less lethal weapons (guns), because they just let you spray and pray without regard to the rules

    I have spent so much time in this game after picking it up on GOG when it was released on there years ago.
    The gameplay is great but really elevates the game is the environment design which tells a story without words, the AI design which does a great job of conveying how experienced or inexperienced or untrained your opposition is from mission to mission. The sound design especially the music adds great atmosphere.
    This is one of my top 5 games of all time especially with swat elite force.
