Thunderbolt Games (Jul 08, 2009)
Heavy Weapon doesn’t do a great deal wrong. It may have taken a long time to reach PS3 from it’s PC origins, but it’s definitely one of the better shooters on PSN, sitting alongside the likes of Everyday Shooter and even Super Stardust HD. It’s not cerebral and it’s not subtle, but it’s bloody good fun, and exactly the sort of quick blast one might expect from downloadable games.

Games are almost always more fun with friends, and Heavy Weapon is no different. The game offers multiplayer in the campaign mode, and, unlike most games, playing the campaign in multiplayer doesn’t disable trophies. If you’re the trophy hunting type, don’t be afraid to bring your friend along for the war. Heavy Weapon also offers a typical survival mode in which players can face wave after wave with the clock ticking. Graphically, the game doesn’t stand out, but it’s not meant to. Sound effects are suitable to the style and do quite well. Replay value is slim to none, so the $9.99 price tag is a judgment call for each individual. Heavy Weapon isn’t very difficult, revolutionary, or deep; but Heavy Weapon is fun. It takes gameplay reminiscent of decades past, shines it up a bit, and delivers a game suitable for spare time.

Along the way you're constantly assaulted by an assortment of vehicles intent on raining molten death upon you. Fast, frantic fun, especially with four players. Heavy Weapon is a fun, if vacuous, blaster.
Gamestyle (Nov 04, 2009)
With trophy support and some decent game modes, Heavy Weapon is entertaining and fun. If you can get past the dated presentation, Gamestyle has no doubt that you'll become drawn into the addictive arcade action. The multiplayer side is a welcome addition, and the modes available are enjoyable. The appeal is limited, however, and there are other shooters on the Playstation Network that warrant your attention before you should set your sights on this one.
