Игра очень крутая. Играли с пацанами под вино и байкальскую водичку.
Но есть пару моментоа.
1) мы играли втроем было слишком лего.
2) На последней карта у нас происходил баг. Что ящеров видел хост. Мы прошли, но мы ящеров не видели, вдел тольео 1 игрок. И наугад мы их махал. Это явно баг
3) Есть только имя Дрочеслав, такое, интересное. Хотелось бы еще таких имен, чтобы пацаны тоже могли что-то крутое выбрать

Эта игра является одной из лучших игр, когда-либо созданных. Я бы назвал это игрой года, может быть, даже десятилетия или века. Я надеюсь, что вся российская молодежь сыграет в эту игру и узнает, насколько прекрасна и удивительна Россия. Когда-нибудь новая Российская империя объединит все исторически русские земли. Благодаря силе байкальской воды она прослужит десять миллионов лет. Власти и силы вечному славянину

You should play lizards must die. It is this really cool souls like game that rivals games such as elden ring and dark souls in quality and lore. The voice acting is perfect, the emotion in the main character and villagers are like no other. The combat is smooth and satisfying as you slay your war through Lizards and their bosses. Like dark souls, the difficulty is hard but rewarding and gives a real sense of accomplishment. The game keeps itself fresh with the option for classes and different moves- from a ground pound that sends enemies staggering, a lightning strike from the sky to even chickens shooting eggs, this game has it all! If you’re a fan of dark soul games I highly recommend lizards must die.

If you are maxing games take a look at our curator site. 

Pretty fun game, absolute masterpiece of a soundtrack. Very funny to play in co-op.

Maxing out is rather easy. "Telega T34" achievement may require you to use guide but it is still really easy. Only thing you may have problem with is the "Impossible" achievement where you need to play whole 15 waves of battlegrounds mode which isn't really easy because of the clunky movement but you can glitch it while playing with someone.

DLC is not required to max out.

Встаёт Ярило, Сварожья Сила,
К нам возвращается.
Зарёй лучистой, росой искристой,
Русь умывается.
Сварожьи Дети в едином свете,
Вновь пробуждаются.
Отцов советы - Святые Веды,
К нам возвращаются.
Мы Боги-Асы, Святую Расу,
Вновь возраждаем здесь.
В своей Отчизне о Родной Жизни,
Провозглашаем весть.
Как Солнце Славы встаёт Держава,
Вся Беловодья весь.
Земля Сибири, Священный Ирий,
Ратью грядёт на крес.
Пречистой Сварги, любимой, жаркой,
Вновь отстояли честь.
Гроза Перуна нам чертит Руны,
Расичей рать не счесть.
Из Мира Слави и Вышней Прави,
Предков Огонь течёт.
Сгорают беды в лучах Победы,
И Славу Народ речёт:
Богов мы славим, жизнью правим,
Как Рода КОН речёт.
Очистим ясный, Мидгард прекрасный,
Жизни река течёт.

A beautifully made game. And that's why:
- Graphics at the level of the latest projects from famous studios.
- A detailed plot based on archival documents and historical data about ancient Rus'.
- Amazing ambience, captivating you from the very first cutscene.
- Sophisticated combat system.

I recommend.

The Lizards never stood a chance against the RUS.
Better dialogue than Red dead.
Better sound track than GTA.
Better graphics than... Pong.
Better value than most AAA titles.

Don't be weak, be RUS!!!!!

I don't understand Russian, not one bit. But, what I do understand is that we as brothers must stick together against the Lizard menace, for we will chug our drinks and take a stand against our foes. In the name of the Svarog!

I didn't expect to find any special gameplay here, because it's clear that this is some garbage done in 5 minutes on Unity 3D, but what I wanted was at least a good portion of memes. So what? Ain't funny even a little, absolutely boring primitive "Slasher". Don't understand such a huge amount of positive reviews. Immediate refund.

Btw. Before reviewing, I decided to take a look at the developers and they turned out to be LITERALLY russian nazis, lol. They are calling for murders of civilians and posting such stuff on their social networks. WTF

Not my type of game, but one i can apretiate for it's merits for being absolutely bonkers and priced acordingly for what you get. Negative reviews are all complaining they don't get how a "simple" game gets so much praise. well, this is not your typical diverse, inclusive, lgbtq+, independent powerful female filled crap with a black punching bag as a protagonist. This is just a simple game you can just pick up, turn off your brain and have some fun. Imagine that in 2023 right?

I remember we studied Ancient war with Lizards during history classes. This game is astonishingly correct in depicting crucial milestones of this warfare and how lizards were played as proxies by aliens.

Also, great warrior Drocheslav, whose deeds were refreshed to wide audience, and importance of a party and squats after each battle.

Almost a documentary piece of art.

10 out of 10 liters on Baikal water.
P.S. I have “F” in history and most probably never attended school.

This game is absolutely horrible in every way, the combat, the text to speech translation, the sound design, the content, the attacks having absolutely zero weight to them, but I just don't have the heart to dislike it and instead I want to 100% it.

When i first saw this game i instantly thought it is silly i still think that to some extent , but I am happy the game is like that its UNIQUE in its own way the PHONK music the hilarious Dialogue the talking LIZARDS the SOUND effects im loving it.

Unlike the Dr Livesey Rom And Death Edition, Lizards Must Die is fine.

In russ vs lizards, there is an ordinary human visual that does not betray the eyes. Yes, there is a lot of fog, but unfortunately this is a problem for many modern games.

The plot, or rather the atmosphere, is very funny, well done) The most important question that can put the game in a bad position:

And what about the combat system? And I will answer you: the combat system is more of a slasher than a souls-like one. Yes, there are local estuses and rifts, a weak and strong blow, but the impact and the principle of combat are like in a slasher. While animations of attacks are taking place, the game hero is immortal (but not from attacks in the back), as soon as the animation is interrupted, he is mortal. Therefore, the principle of the game is the constant invocation of the enemy with special techniques (there are 2 of them) and ordinary \ strong attacks when animations are interrupted - bypassing the enemy or rolling. It may not sound very good, but in practice it is quite suitable, especially against the background of rocking background music (I am not a connoisseur of this genre, but here it is well chosen, there were several tracks in the same livesey that annoyed me).

The game is not complicated, balanced, there is room for tactics, one of several magical techniques to choose from, selected at the level and greatly helping in battle, helps a lot. My favorite techniques are "Slavic chest shot" and "the power of Perun (which makes pillars of lightning)". The last 2 levels: on the Moon and the Battlefield can cause difficulty, but magical special techniques are solved there: they lured enemies into one pile, threw a chest shot or the power of Perun, and there is no such pile. In general, everything is fine with the combat system.

Conclusion: This game really deserves so much hype, it affects the works of Professor Bagirov, and most importantly, it is made with high quality (within the game of jokes, of course). The developers did not even abandon the game from the release, but added 2 more levels. If anyone is interested in this game, you can play it, you will not regret it.

I don't recommend this game at all. It's very repetetive and boring. Taking damage seems not related to being struck by a weapon. Sometimes an enemy falls through you and seconds later you take damage. Seems very random, which makes gameplay even more annoying.
If there's any humour supposed to be in the game, I fail to see it.

Despite controversial UNITY engine was used, game didn't exhibit no crashes or errors.
As for playability, it took me few minutes to adapt the controls and camera POV, but since latest update, it is much better.
Lizards MUST Die is not a typical RPG, also not your everyday normal Action FPS (well, not shooter, more like axe swinger), it is something in between.

You can choose from different types (heroes), each having variety of unique skills / warcries / spells.

Yet no matter what you chose, the game remains non-forgiving, if you can't embrace the controls, and be very nimble player.

Cut scenes are mostly funny, and refreshing, but I hope there is a way to skip them (in case I start over)

I like also the quite subtle message how Lizards / Lizardmen / bipedal snakes are ruthless aggressors and standing together and put a fight, is the key to victory. Everyone is full of ebil Putin narrative, but no one dares to criticize or even consider revealing lizard-like banksters, who control UK, US and also US and love starting global wars for no other reason than pure genocide and money.

TL;DR The goyda of video games since Mario

Wot I liked
- There're games which graphics transcenddddds everything you've seen before RvL reminds me of the breakthrough similar to the time the first 3dfx accelerators were released;
- Gameplay: you can do literally anything. Literally. Anything:
- Music might have been written by the gods themselves;
- Same can be said about the plot - who could've thought that the setting where medieval russian knights fighting evil lizards and aliens would work. It does here;
- Voiceover has such high production value it would remind a quadruple A project.

Wot I disliked
- The game's too short - I have clocked in just 30 hours, which is criminally low for such a gem.

To sum it all up, that's the first game I've reviewed that might be considered flawless, i.e. lacking any single flaw whatsoever.

P.S. It's a meme game - get over it.

History accurate plot with ancient Russ music. Amazing. It was such a pleasure to kill hordes of terrible lizards. I felt patriotic as well because playing this game made me remenisce the stories about my ancestors my mother told me when I was really young.
I strongly recommend this game to everyone. It worthes much more than that money

I think it's a shame that this game costs so much, it's really not the best, I have to say, it's almost as good as unplayable, all the actions are so laggy that it makes it difficult to play, which I personally think is a shame because the game is really on its own It's funny in its own way but it's really worth asking for money for it. Without the stroy it's not captivating enough that you do this shit to yourself. I mean for 2 euros there are far better games????

Borderline trash. The audio levels are beyond terribly mixed. Music will blow you ears out then the footsteps are 5x louder than everything else but you cant change the audio separately for each type of source. Unfortunately it is unplayable for me from the loud footsteps alone I shit you not. Just a bit more love and it would be a decent meme game where you just kill lizards to dope music but it didn't translate well and looks way cooler in the store photos. It also is unnecessarily choppy at times for how basic the graphics are.

Игра имба, для тех кто помнит и чтит историю древней Руси. Но к сожалению в данный шедевр нельзя сыграть с другом, чтобы более продуктивно истреблять ящеров, ещё к минусу можно отнести слишком мало сражений которая данная игра показывает

So, I was all hyped up for this game, thanks to the unbelievably positive reviews. At the time of writing this, there is only one negative review.

But, hey, within the first 10 seconds of playing, I was already disappointed by the outdated and unappealing user interface (UI) of the game. It feels completely out of touch with the year 2023. Well, actually it's not that bad. The game is cheap tho, and one shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Maybe the gameplay would make up for it? Well, I was wrong.

The gameplay is a total letdown, it felt rather lackluster and uninspired. I couldn't derive any enjoyment from the few minutes I spent playing the game. The combat mechanics left much to be desired, and the storyline gave off an unsettling cult-like vibe, which was simply not my cup of tea. While being part of a cult can sometimes be amusing, this game just gives me the creeps.

Now I have learned that 'overwhelmingly positive reviews' isn't always a reliable measure of quality. You can give the game a try, though I will be requesting a refund.

Ну а если честно, то заплатил бы за этот шедевр даже $19,99, ну просто, чтобы разработчики доделали игру. Идея мемная, c учетом ресурсов (исходя из раздела "Создатели") реализация огонь, тактильно играется прикольно. Нет серьезно, может это и задумывалось как чисто фановая история, но на выходе это очень прикольный hack and slash. Понятно, что полишинг не на уровне AA, но это прям обязательная покупка

This is exactly how things happened, Russian history books never lie.

In all seriousness, though, I would not mind a proper action RPG based on this or at least in the same setting. I mean, theoretically, you could even add more NPC and dialogues to an existing game, but I would prefer a relatively big world, where you can explore stuff, and perhaps even explore the culture of the Lizards among other things.
Actually, back in 2020 I had some notes inspired by https://farfargames.com/ which were based on Kiev's Rus mythology and real-life geography. It had "nonhumans", so they could be replaced by Lizards, I guess. Notes can be found on https://www.simbiat.dev/talks/threads/395/ if anyone is interested (in Russian).

In the realm of gaming, where tales of valor and quests of unparalleled grandeur unfold, one title stands as a beacon of unadulterated brilliance: "Lizards Must Die." Permit me, noble denizens of the gaming world, to sing praises of this legendary masterpiece that has enraptured our souls and ignited the flames of epic adventures within our hearts.

From the very moment one embarks on this daring escapade, the opulent tapestry of its immersive world unfurls before one's eyes. The richly detailed landscapes, resplendent in their intricacy, transport players to an enchanted realm where lizards of nefarious disposition threaten the very balance of existence. The sheer artistry that has gone into crafting this fantastical world is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

The gameplay itself is a symphony of perfection. As you, the valiant protagonist, step into the shoes of a gallant hero, armed with the mightiest of weapons and imbued with unyielding resolve, the fate of the realm rests squarely on your shoulders. The challenges that beset you are as varied as they are exhilarating, each encounter a test of strategy, skill, and mettle. "Lizards Must Die" is an orchestration of gaming brilliance, where the crescendo of each battle quickens the pulse and quickens the spirit.

But what truly sets this legendary game apart is its narrative tapestry. The storytelling is nothing short of a magnum opus, weaving together a tapestry of emotions that resonate deeply within the recesses of one's soul. The characters, endowed with rich backstories and motivations, spring to life in such a way that one cannot help but become emotionally entangled in their struggles and triumphs.

The symphonic score, an auditory masterpiece in its own right, weaves a melody that tugs at the heartstrings, accentuating every dramatic twist and momentous revelation. It is a soundtrack that lingers in the mind long after the controller is set aside, a testament to the game's enduring impact.

It is a work of sublime genius that shall be celebrated for generations to come, a testament to the inexhaustible magic that can be found within the realm of gaming.

It's loud (but you can adjust the volume), janky, and the 'voice acting' and translations are a crime against humanity. The story is dismal, the strategy is rather non-existent, and it is bad...gloriously bad in the most entertaining way!

It's a small-team passion project, and their love of fun shines in this game (at least the English version...the Russian version may come off quite differently).

There are several maps (Lizard Men and, my favorite, Aliens) and settings, some minimal variation to available powers, and a very linear progression through the various encounters.

For the price, and for the bad 80s movie vibe, I truly can suggest it as long as you understand what you're getting and getting in to.

Also, for the achievement hunters out there: this one should be easy pickings with a few sessions.

I was partially excited about this because it was from the same think tank of the Dr. Livesey Rom & Death Edition game. Unfortunately this game doesn't quite accomplish the same charm. I will give credit where credit is due, I did myself laughing at the intentional "so bad, it's good" production and jokes, but I was also hoping for a nice little hack and slash game. You do get multiple levels, three playable characters, and several power moves to use. Achievements are easily attainable if you're into that. There's even aliens from outer space.

The game blasts Phonk like nobodies business, but it doesn't have the musical timing that Dr. Livesey had. It's core gameplay isn't that fun either. Reason being is that there's no weight or challenge to the combat. Dr. Livesey had gunplay that matched the feel of the music. I bring up Dr. Livesey because that's an example of a meme game done right. Lizards Must Die is like a bad piece of gum that loses it's way too quickly.

Don't get me wrong, I wanted to love Lizards Must Die, and I'm not averted by some jank, but I just wasn't having fun, and games like this, at bare minimum, should be fun to play. It's Rus warriors fight giant lizards. If game is updated amd p
