Gorky 17


Game Summary

The main hero in Gorky 17 is Cole Sullivan, a fascinatingly complex character. Play for a while and you’ll feel yourself taking on his traits and sharing his emotions, above all his very personal feelings towards the other characters and their environment. How did we achieve this? Simple ... by combining the pure excitement of battle with the element of surprise and exploration found in adventures.

In addition to fighting turn-based battles against realistic monsters, you can also shoot off locks, pick up newspapers, converse with other characters and even solve some tricky puzzles! This, in a nutshell, is the concept behind Gorky 17 – combine the best of the genres to create the best game possible. Here’s a little nibble ... you’re engaged in a heavy battle against a deformed hybrid. He’s getting the upper hand, but is down to his last shot. Suddenly he starts begging for his life, pleading with you to show mercy. He offers to reveal the location of a rebel ammunition dump down in the sewers – he even gives you the key! You agree and follow him. But ... it’s a trap! Suddenly four giant monsters attack from all sides. Tricky eh?

Review This Game


That was one of the first games I have ever played.. Everyone need to try it :D


At the beginning, some short story - for the first time I've played in this game in the end of 2001. After 11 (sic!) years I've ...decided to remind this title. What was the effect? Even with my knowledge about the plot and the ending, I've still had a lot of fun with this game. It is the turn-based tactical game with elements of cRPG, and all of these elements are made really well. During the fights, you need to use the covers, use the adequate weapons (most of the mutants have immunities for some types of attacks) and well - survive. The cRPG elements are not too complex - but it doesn't bother, because it is mainly tactical game. And this plot - really interesting and (in some way) unusual. Unfortunatly, the AI of the oponnents has some lacks, and some fights with the bosses are far too easy. Well, the graphics looks really old,but the music and sounds are still awesome and climatic. Really worth to try!
