Insane Action in glorious vivid colors with awesome tripping and frequently changing music as you play!
I have played probably hundreds of these break-out style games since I was a kid on my Commodore 64 as a kid in the early 1980s.. and Shatter is easily the best one I have ever played! That is saying a LOT for this little gem!
My review for this game breaks down as follows:
Value (worth 40 points):
This game offers a TON of value with super addictive gameplay that will have you wanting to play again and again. With all the different modes of play you will unlock and the fact that no two games will ever be the same, I give this game a 38 out of 40 for value for your money (even at the full $9.99 USD price)
Fun (worth 30 points):
This game also delivers in this facet of my game grading criteria. It's simply a helluva lot of fun to play, period. I give this game a 28 out of 30 possible points here.
Controls & Bugs (worth 20 points)
No bugs at all that I've found, and the controls are amazing.. perfect to be completely honest. I prefer playing Shatter with a mouse and keyboard, but you can play with a controller too! Everything can be configured to your personal preference! (From your Steam library, right click on Shatter and choose the Shatter settings editor to change any setting at any time) 20 out of 20 possible points for Shatter in this aspect of the game!
Graphics & Sound (worth 10 points)
The music and sound in Shatter is beyond amazing, and the colorful and vivid graphics are also super attractive! Could the graphics be a little better? Sure.. I think so! If they had only added shadows to the ball and bricks or somehow gave them a sense of 3D depth, they graphics could have been even more beautiful then they are! So I'll knock this score just a little and give Shatter an 8 out of 10 here.
Add it all up, and Shatter scores a super impressive 94% in my books, the HIGHEST SCORE of all of my Steam reviews at this point, and I've reviewed about 80 Steam games at this point! That is a very impressive score to say the least!
My overall opinion:
If you haven't yet experienced Shatter, shut-up and give up the money right now! Don't wait for a sale! Don't think about it! ..Every minute you wait could be a minute of super addictive, fast paced, blissfully fun gaming you could be having! ..Any gamer won't regret buying this truly awesome game, the only problem might be having to let other family members and friends get their turn when they see you playing this eye catching masterpiece! Just do it! A MUST BUY!
