Meltdown is an isometric shooter with repetitive gameplay and almost no story. It can be played offline or online (with or without a lock key to enter the session).
The looks are acceptable. From a cheap game, blocky models are still acceptable.
Running the game is somewhat light. Using a GTX 760 it only required 45% clocked at 810 MHz. For the processor, only 15% is needed while clocked at 2.80 GHz.
The soundtrack is boring, and with repetitive gameplay, it gets annoying. Sound effects are there. Voice acting and robotic sound effects, however, are not, which is bad because it could have added more interest in gameplay. You might as well mute the game and it wouldn't feel any different.
Again, gameplay is repetitive. While you could win stages with skill alone, most of the achievements are based on grinding. It is more enjoyable when playing online, even with random players. There are no means of in-game communication, though, and you might as well think that you are playing co-op with CPU bots. Playing online ups the difficulty, but it also clears the stage offline, so there is more reason to play it online.
I recommend this game. For a game with simple mechanics, you can spend 30 hours to complete the achievements and finish all stages.
