Mod Reviews - Freeze Tag

Similar to a Jailbreak game, but better! You freeze the other team by killing them all the while unfreezing any guys on your team. Freeze Tag makes deathmatch fun again.

What is it:

  • Freezing - When you kill someone (only people on the other team) they become ice cubes.

  • Unfreezing - To become unfrozen or unfreezing someone on your team, just stand near them for 3 seconds. They explode and respawn somewhere, but be warned, it could be a very long three second wait.

  • Dragging People - When you freeze someone on the other team, you can drag them by walking by them. Don't run with them, or you'll lose your grip.

  • Scoring - The team gets one main point if everyone on the opposing team is frozen. You personally get a point for freezing someone, but it doesn't go towards the main score. The game ends when the main points scored for your team reaches about 8.

  • Voting - You can vote on which map you want to play next with the new 'vote' feature. Singleplayer maps are better to play due to the many place to hide frozen bodies :)

  • While Frozen - When your frozen, you can look around you to give team mates info on where your stuck. You can also scroll through other players views via the chasecam.

  • Maps/Servers - No maps including with the download, mainly because any map could be played with this MOD (some maps are expected to be released at a later date). Not too many servers, but more keep popping up.

  • Players Needed - You can play with 2 people, but with atleast 4 people you'll be able to unfreeze team members.

    I always put off reviewing this MOD, even though I should have played. It's a real fun change from CTF and just plain old DM.
