Meat Puppet

Description official descriptions

In Meat Puppet, you play the role of Lotus Abstraction in a darkly futuristic post-apocalyptic world. Lotus responded to a personal add claiming "help wanted for nocturnal missions". These "missions" turn out to be a far cry from what Lotus expected! As Lotus, your main quest besides performing the occasional kill is to discover the identity of your employer, who has deigned not to reveal himself, and free yourself from his mafia-style employment agreement.

Third-person isometric futuristic shooter

The Good
The graphics are stunning. The character movements (esp. that of Lotus) is very smooth and fluid. The environment creates a bleak atmosphere of what the future may be like. This made the scenery interesting to traverse. The sounds are also good, as is the music.

The Bad
The controls are very difficult to use. Moving with the mouse is preferable, but shooting enemies is very difficult. Also, the enemies are extremely stupid: you shoot one, and it takes another a while to notice. Also, there isn't really a lot of variety in terms of weapons, and each level is timed. This gives you less time to explore.

The Bottom Line
Not quite as good as Crusader, but very fun.

When this game was first released, it was heavily compared to the Crusader games since it was an ultra-violent isometric game. However, the game's development was actually started before Crusader: No Remorse was released.
