Description of Crusader: No Remorse

Read Full Description

Definitely one of the best action games ever made, Origin's Crusader: No Remorse is a perfect use of the 3D isometric engine used in the abysmal Ultima VIII: Pagan.

The premise is not original, but effective in the game's action-packed context: you are a former Silencer, an elite soldier working for the World Economic Consortium, who one day decided to join the Resistance, a movement which aims to free the world from the Consortium's oppression. Despite this cliche premise, No Remorse gets better with time as the plot thickens and the gameworld is fleshed out in great detail, complete with competent acting in full-motion video (which, obviously, are too large to be included in this CD-rip. Track down the full version!)

Gameplay comprises of 16 missions which must be completed in order. Mission objectives range from destroying a Consortium refinery, rescuing prisoners, to kidnapping a Consortium official. Although you will spend most of your time blasting anything that moves, wanton destruction is not encouraged, since there are useful objects such footlockers which contain power-ups and ammo, as well as computer terminals that yield passwords and clues you will need. Moreover, stealth and planning are encouraged by the presence of alarms, which will call enemy troops to your location and deactivate some crucial terminals if you set them off. This, together with the inclusion of many interactive items on each level, adds a fun element of realism to the standard find-blue-key-to-unlock-blue-door gameplay.

The arsenal of weapons you will have at your disposal is impressive, ranging from the mundane (semiautomatic pistols), to the devastating (UV-9 ultraviolet rifle). Part of the fun in No Remorse is seeing your enemies die in various ways. The "Unifier" plasma rifle, for example, completely disintegrates a human target, leaving only some residue. Other inventory items include mines, explosives, spider bombs, shield generators, medikits, power cells, etc. The variety of the weaponry and their different uses definitely sets No Remorse apart from Doom clones, and part of the fun lies in figuring out the optimal use for each item.

Overall, No Remorse provides exactly what the title implies: addictive hours of fun without remorse. My only gripe is that the controls take some getting used to, with different keystrokes for walking, running, rolling, crouching, shooting, etc. The combination of mouse and keypad seems to work best, but this requires considerable practice. But no matter-- practice you will, and as soon as you get used to the controls, you'll find yourself hooked in the Silencer's world for hours on end. Two thumbs up, way up!

One of my most favorite games! Controls are just fine I think - just don't forget to enter Running Mode (Caps Lock) to -well- run, and more importantly turn more quickly. Get in cover, aim towards the enemy or camera and leave your cover using duck/stand (Strg), strafing or side rolls (Alt + direction) fire some shots and you won't have any problems staying alive! :-)

No Remorse runs fine on all systems with DOSBox. I just played it on my Mac using DOSBox Staging.

good game but controls are abomination

Haha, oh wow...

Solved it myself - just had a flash of inspiration after posting my last comment - and it was pretty obvious.

You need to create a sub-folder within your Crusader folder, entitled SAVEGAME. That's where DOSBox was trying to save to, but it didn't exist.

Pumpkin 2016-05-22 3 points

The game won't save; comes up with "unable to create file" and boots me out.

I've been reading up on and googling both DOSBox and this rip, and I've found absolutely nothing.

Last person who asked this question got 2 downvotes - is there anyone who has an actual answer?

you have to change the unit in crusader.cfg " cdletter " depending on which is mounted in DOSBox

Cramo 2016-02-25 2 points

It's not working, please, fix this classic game!
Unable to open file (null) in file FILE\FASTLEX.C line 38

You people need to learn to spell, otherwise I'm going to get kicked out of the library for laughing so much.

I just want to play this game again, one man mission, it's so fucking cool. Yet, because of EA, origin didn't make new sequel. It's not over yet, but EA makes it over.

Thanks, master!

Sadly this is only a rip, not the full game. Not that you need the full motion video, but it helped.

Thanks !

Tabasco Master 2012-03-23 0 point DOS version

This game is awesome but when you unload it a run it on dosbox in raw form it will come up with an error. Usually the error I got was file\fastflex.c line 38 which I fixed by changing the config file. Change the cdletter from d to c and it will run and also read the read me file with Crusader. After that the game will run but without movie intros but there's away to get them to work but I lack that knowledge. I hope this helps any who want to play this game.
