One day, someone will create a futuristic mod in which everyone is happy. Life is valued, petrol is cheap, game reviewers have harems and everyone loves everyone else. This isn't it though. Instead, NeoTokyo - based on a range of popular sci-fi anime stories - is set barely 30 years into the future when the gap between rich and poor has widened and the government uses an iron fist to keep the masses under control.
This is the premise for a class-based team deathmatch with a twist. Anime is a genre rarely focused on in modding circles, but NeoTokyo could change that - despite its flaws, it looks great. The maps are generally top notch, reflecting an urban environment with a fine attention to detail. So many urban maps are dark, dingy places, but NT's are bright and realistic with a definite oriental flavour. Character skins are likewise top class, as are the weapons and effects. The gameplay is relatively simple too - seize and hold the capture points before wiping out the opposition to win the match -but fun-packed nonetheless.
NeoTokyo is hampered by its lack of bot support and while there are a few servers, they're sparsely populated, which makes LAN-play the best bet. This is a shame, because the maps are up there with the best, but maybe things will change if the touted Source Engine version comes to fruition.
