I was quite skeptical seeing all the positive reviews while seeing the mediocre gameplay. All the lights and effects seemed like goofy attempt at covering up the junk underneath.
But after getting the 4-pack during a sale and playing with some buddies, I came right back and bought a few more. For those that enjoy arena shooters, this is an arena shooter done right. Every shot that hits feels so satisfying, I crave to play more.
The only major downside is the steps it takes to actually set up a LAN party. Due to the limited experience of the lonely dev, he resorted to 3rd party technology, thus the requirement to download a server program from an external website and a bit of tweaking before one can play with friends, even if everyone is on the same router.
After having done so, I see it is relatively easy despite the daunting number of steps on the wiki, so don't be afraid to give it a shot.
Also surprisingly, playing solo with bots is actually pretty darn fun too. Don't let the flashing lights blind you, this game delivers a very solid package. I'd highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys arena shooters.
