There are a few other dual-stick shooters in the PlayStation Store, but Gatling Gears is one of the best. It doesn't have much in the way of new ammunition -- this is essentially a 1985 arcade game with the modern conveniences provided by the PlayStation Network. But it is a joy to play. The intricately detailed environments make for a world you actually want to save. And if that hippy crap doesn't cut it for you, know that mowing down hordes of tiny men in what is essentially an AT-ST from Star Wars is just as satisfying as it sounds.

Een kleurrijke arcade shooter met simpele controls, aan te raden voor iedereen met een onstuitbare vernietigingsdrang. Met steeds betere wapens wordt dit een verslavend knalfestijn.

Gatling Gears bietet klassische Twin-Stick-Action, bei der man sich aus der Vogelperspektive durch 30 charmant inszenierte Spielabschnitte ballert und nach versteckten Goldbarren Ausschau hält, um seinen mit Gatling Gun, Kanone und Granatwerfer bestückten Walker aufzurüsten. Die Darstellung ist aufgrund unbeeinflussbarer Blickwinkel, Einbahnstraßen-Scrolling sowie Gegnern, die teils kaum größer als ihre abgefeuerten Projektile sind, zwar nicht immer optimal, den Spielspaß mindert das aber kaum. Vor allem zu zweit macht das immer fulminantere Zerbröseln feindlicher Truppen, Vehikel und Bosse jede Menge Laune, auch wenn man allein deutlich leichter und übersichtlicher voran kommt. Lediglich das Werfen von Granaten hätte etwas handlicher sein können und dass immer wieder punkteträchtige Pickups außerhalb der Sammelreichweite liegen, wirkt auch nicht gerade durchdacht. Nichtsdestotrotz kommen Fans von Spielen wie Assault Heroes & Co für ca. 15 Euro gut auf ihre Kosten.

Gatling Gears n'a pas de grande prétention, mais réussit tout de même à faire le principal : nous amuser. Grâce à une jouabilité souple et à un armement simple mais efficace, le titre de Vanguard Games a de quoi attirer de nombreux gamers avides de sensations ressenties dans des vieux jeux d'action old-school. L'aspect scoring et la coopération en local ou en ligne devrait suffire à décider les plus indécis.

While Gatling Gears certainly looks and plays well, the premise gets old quickly and I found myself having to grind through the later levels for the sake of completing this review. If you’re looking for title to play in short bursts with a mate, it certainly offers a entertaining distraction, but a lack of challenge and variety holds it back from becoming a must buy.

If you haven’t dabbled in arcade shooters before, then you will probably enjoy Gatling Gears frantic gameplay, gorgeous graphics and undeniable charm. But for others, there’s a lot of stuff in there that we’ve simply seen before.

Gatling Gears isn't a terrible shooter, but it also lacks any ambition. As dual-stick shooters go, this is another lazy attempt at the genre. The boring weapons and mediocre level designs won't win this game any awards, but they also won't ruin an otherwise unspectacular action game!
