Eye-candy (ii)

The Good

As with Rage's other famous product, 'Incoming', this exists primarily as a show-off for accelerated 3D graphics, with gameplay secondary. On the other hand, it's actually quite fun to play, and it's nice to see an uncomplicated, non-FPS shooting-game being released for the normally strategy-obsessed PC.

The Bad

Apart from the looks, it's not really any more advanced than a million mid-80's vertically-scrolling, 'Ikari Warriors'-esque arcade games. The gameplay revolves around collecting ever-more-outrageous power-ups whilst facing-down bigger and tougher bosses, and has absolutely no longevity or replay value. You could probably get as much enjoyment from watching somebody else completing the game for you.

The Bottom Line

Attractive retro 3d-ish shooting game, fun for a short while.
