Origin is having fun with their On The House program. With such an enormous catalogue to choose from, they seem to be enjoying giving a range of games away for free. It certainly helps boost their image with gamers, and the latest freebie is apparently awesome.
With a tagline of “No pity. No mercy. No remorse.” Crusader: No Remorse is already pure awesome, but here’s the description of the game:
As a Silencer, one of the elite enforcers of the World Economic Consortium, you’re supposed to be incorruptible. But if the system you serve is utterly corrupt, where does that leave you? You go over to the Resistance, the same pack you used to hunt down. Now, your former employers better watch their backs because you’re coming after them with all the firepower at your command.
The game was released in 1995 and I never played it, something that I feel horribly sad about now. Geoff raved about it, though, saying that it’s a brilliant game with weird controls. Seeing as Geoff doesn’t rave about many games, I think we need to take that as a ridiculously high compliment.
As always, you should go grab the game quickly from Origin’s On The House page; we never know how long these deals will last so it’s best to grab your free game sooner rather than later.
Did you play Crusader: No Remorse back in the 90s? Is this tickling your nostalgia bone, or are you going to play it fresh just to see if you can give Geoff a hard time for telling us it was good?
