RadarPlays - Receiver

So there's this game where you use a gun to shoot robots, except the gun is really realistic. Like, you need to take the clip out to reload it, and you need to check the safety, and it's weird. It's called Receiver and we played it. Watch and see how weird first-person shooters would be if they were realistic.

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past on RadarPlays Retro, Wednesdays we change things up to whatever we feel like playing with RadarPlays Shuffle, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of in RadarPlays Freaky. We'll also release RadarPlays for all the new releases, so be sure to check back!

    A nice breath of fresh air, a new take on an old concept. Honestly though, I got it for the soundtrack. Freaking amazing.

    I'll be honest: the effort and functionality that are in this are impressive for its 7 day time limit, but right now I wouldn't want to play it just because it doesn't seem fun.

    This actually looks pretty neat. I mean, it adds weight to the argument that videogames can't teach people how to use guns. I mean, that's as realistic as it's gotten and you were a complete shambles XD Those 'robots' looked like something you'd make in a D&T class though with a sheet of MDF and a few rolls of duct tape. Speaking of tapes...

    The controls seemed a little to complex, but it was a great looking game and concept for a 7 day challege. I was personally waiting for Slender to jump out and keep you from finding his embarassing home videos. Although I guess he did not have to worry about you seeing him get an F in art class since you were unable to find any tapes.

    Game of the Year right here people...

    Nice, with some refinement it can be awesome. Always wanted shooters to be more realistic if they were already going that route. I thought some game had bullets being lost if you eject the clip early. The killing room has cool recoil effects.
