I seriously suggest clicking "read more" for your safety before buying this game. I bought this game for .99 cents for me and my friends figuring it was so cheap how could I possibly be upset. I wasnt, not with the game itself. For 99 cents its exactly what you'd expect, and its fine.
Heres the line that really packs it in for me.

Get this thing off of steam... They apparently collect personal information from their users... Like... ALL OF IT.
Not okay.... At all... It's not even a multiplayer game so this just seems irrational and unecessary...

Really, really enjoyed this. Perfect? Nope. Inspired? Probably not. Hectic spraying and praying while walking backwards alot? Yup. A serviceable story with generally bearable acting? Sure, why not. Believable, claustrophobic environments with a tense atmosphere around every other corner? Absolutely.
I'm 50 years old. In other words, I'm way, way ancient. As I approach having played through the campaigns of about four dozen sci-fi/horror/shooter/stealth games stretching back decades--some of the AAA variety and others that less than 15 people in the west even know about (Kreed, anyone?)--I am slowly learning that all interactive entertainment exists in context. Anyone grousing about this game probably has no idea what a truly bad game is. Dear complainers: While it may appear to have the proper trappings (and do a lot of borrowing), Dead Effect ain't Dead Space (or Doom for that matter). But to our benefit, it also isn't Run Like Hell or Alien: Colonial Marines. This game exists as a competent, complete (as in finished), challenging, bloody, entertaining, intentionally goofy (at times), highly derivative, technically stable title with generally wider-than-average blood spray patterns. I mean, what else do you want in an indie?
Enter Dead Effect's playground with the proper context, and it will easily rise to meet your middling expectations. (And I mean that in the best, brain-splattery way possible. Reload.)

♥♥♥♥♥poor design which they make you use the money in the game that you have earn to respawn, the enemies are bullet sponges which means you die within seconds of starting the level and have you read the policy they have? I'd suggest following the link and reading it all.

About the game itself (takin into account that its dirt cheap): + gore is pretty good for indie fps game, its fun to throw a grenade or use your blast power and see all the gore. + they are some fun weapons (although a bit few) like a chainsaw and a few basic upgrades that you can buy with cash gained from missions and doing extra moduses (see below) and you have a blast power and bullet time power. + enemies are challenging (in hordes) and there seems to be some variation so far (mostly melee but some are ranged, some miniboss-like enemies have a gun and some throw grenades). + they are some extra moduses; survival and kill of waves of enemies. - at first it can be a bit tedious cause the begin weapons are a bit boring and weak. Also enemies like the grenadiers can be annoying, since they can or atleast can almost instakill you. - maps are just corridors (so far for me atleast), while there are some extra areas where some extra cash or ammo is laying around, its still simple map design. - some of the graphics while not bad for an indie fps, have to much contrast.
This game has unfixed bugs and is totally abandoned by developers. They officially confirmed on forums that they don't give a heck about bugs in this game, and only care of making money from their newer games.
Also, if you read terms and conditions you must accept to play this game, you will find that you allow them to collect ANY information about you and store it infinitely (how long they want).

My favorite part of the game is the enemy that looks almost exactly like every other enemy but throws near-invisible insta-death grenades from halfway across the level that you can't dodge and forces you to start the boring, tedious, half-hour level all over again. That and the really boring combat.
Just...bad. Poor controls, poor framerate, poor level design - "why look at this open area finally, oh nevermind there's a small pipe in my way guess i'm not going there." Thought it might be fun for the cheap price, I don't mind the loss of a dollar or two, it's more the loss of my time.
