I knew how Strafe was going to turn out. I read the dev updates. I saw it coming. Strafe was more or less unplayable on my laptop but even then I knew I didn’t miss anything. What a waste.
The devs have since given it a massive much needed overhaul called ‘Millennium Edition’ and I gave it a go.
is new? New room layouts (especially for the first zone, which is the
blandest and worst designed environment in the game), loads of new
monsters, new gun sounds, and performance optimization.

still balance issues. The AI still doesn’t feel quite right. The
shotgun’s grenade upgrade is still a straight downgrade. Loot still
feels too expensive. Armour is far too expensive for what you get. The
jellyfish vents are still shit. It takes too long to get back into the
game after dying.
I played it for half an hour, which is longer than I could stand to play the original. I enjoyed it and I’m going to play it again. I like the new layouts, monsters and weapon tweaks. If you’ve already bought Strafe you should try it.
I can’t recommend it to new players though. Maybe after the next overhaul.
