The Ship: Murder Party is a first person shooter spy game with sim like mechanics.
The gameplay consists of players secretly trying to kill another player in a group of players. Each one is tasked with a particular hit, so each player not only needs to sneakily kill their target but also watch their back as there is an unknown player that is tasked with killing them. On top of this there are sim like aspects where each player needs to eat drink and sleep, adding a level of complexity to the game to make it more like real life.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Manic deceptive gameplay
Everyone is out to get someone in the group. It is only through hiding who you are after that one can be successful. On top of this the player also has to hide their motive from the AI security as well, since their are cameras all over the ship, meaning one can not freely brandish a weapon.
Pro Sim like experience
Players will need to watch their hunger and thirst levels while playing, which adds to the level of mechanics. Not only do you need to sneak around to get your kill but you need to sleep eat and drink in order to stay healthy enough to do so.
Pro Works well as a local party game
Even though there is no LAN play, players can all connect to a server online to still enjoy playing in the same room. The hectic gameplay makes for some fun shouting matches when things start heating up and people start dying.
Con Poor fighting controls
Sadly the actual controls for fighting are subpar as they feel imprecise and make for a lot of flailing and button mashing.
