Dive into an action-drived first-person shooter, set in near-future sci-fi universe created by V1 Interactive, a newly-assembled studio of industry veterans. Journey into a vision of tomorrow where humankind is on the brink of extinction and has turned to technology in the hope of survival. Using a process known as Integration, human minds are surgically implanted into robotic armatures creating a new form of sentient life. As a domineering enemy superpower known as the Rayonne emerges, take on the role of Romer Shoal, an expert Gravcycle pilot. Astride your heavily-modified craft (fitted with an armoured chassis and a powerful array of weapons), lead a small resistance force in the fight to save what remains of humanity.

Disintegration is what every debut work from a newly founded studio should be: a commitment to creating something new that also respects the most classic mechanics of two well-differentiated genres. But, best of all, Disintegration it’s the special feeling that V1 Interactive has discovered something unique: a genre that I didn’t know I needed until I played through it.

Disintegration is probably THE hidden gem of 2020. Yes, some aspects are quite generic, like the story and the sound presentation, but the beautiful visual aspect and the spectacular gameplay make this experience one of the most interesting this year.

Those looking for a more solid FPS might want to look elsewhere, but it’s a fine alternative to the team shooter, where you can have the camaraderie without the people.

Disintegration is a hybrid between FPS and RTS that ultimately fails to deliver a satisfying experience on both ends. Its uninspired singleplayer campaign is filled with technical issues during cinematics and during missions. I never felt like I was having fun while playing the same type of objectives over and over again. Not even the somewhat decent multiplayer modes can save Disintegration from falling short of its expectations.

How ironic that a game that purports to be about fighting against conformity ends up giving in to a stultifying homogeneity.

While Disintegration promises a fresh take on the sci-fi FPS genre, it delivers an underwhelming experience with an incoherent storyline.
