This guide should provide some useful hints and help you to obtain "Lord Master of Great Skill" achievement.
Coldstrike DLC required.

A relatively short and incredibly arcadey fun vehicular top down twin stick shooter.
Since the game is by the same folks who made the Just Cause series the cheese in its extremely simplistic story is ever so present and adds to that with its very comic book style cutscenes and dialogue. One thing that gripes me though is that the "cutscenes" in the game where the game just stops for dialogue aren't skippable at all. Luckily there weren't enough for me there to be discouraged to replay.
The sound in-game is a little underwhelming where the noises from the explosions, vehicles, and gunfire are pretty a bit too "equal" in volume and don't quite entirely sound like they show off much of an impact.
The game doesn't take very long to finish and it may perhaps be faster too with other people but I wouldn't know about that part because the multiplayer is pretty dead and I don't know anyone I'd play this with.
It was a bit surprising to find that I was controlling vehicles and not people. It took a little while to learn how to properly handle the vehicles I was using, especially when making turns, but it didn't take very long to get a feel for it. Personally I find that performing seemingly skillful fast & smooth drifts and turns to avoid oncoming rockets and mortars and whatever the like whilst simultaneously shooting the enemy is the most satisfying part about this game. Though the game will always say "a controller is preferred" or whatever when starting the game up I think it all just comes down to preference with this game since they both work. Playing with a controller makes driving a lot more smoother and satisfying however your aim in shooting is merely reliant on where the right thumbstick is pointed. On a keyboard & mouse there's a little bet less control when driving but aiming to fire should be significantly more precise thanks to the crosshair you move around with the mouse.
You get a choice of some characters with pre-selected vehicles to use before any mission. Everyone uses the exact same standard machine gun that can be upgraded to a maximum of 4 (or 3 I wasn't counting) that can be fired simultaneously. Along the way you'll also acquire other secondary weapons such as the flamethrower, rocket launcher, and rail gun that can be dropped from the bigger enemies for you to pick up & use. All machine gun upgrades and pick-ups are kept for the current mission or until you die. Each character I think controls the same though they have their own "special" weapon/abilities for your preference that can be activated with the press of a key/button. Each character may also level up upon use which then rewards you with a sort of "upgrade points" which are used to purchase a selection of upgrades currently available. You earn EXP for leveling by simply destroying hostiles though the more you combo up your kills the faster you level and even if you fail the current mission you keep your current levels and EXP. As you keep purchasing upgrades you'll be able to purchase more newer and possibly better ones. Unfortunately the number of upgrades you are able to equip is incredibly limited even at max level. You first start out only being able to equip one but as you level up the character you unlock more slots with the maximum being 4. Though the challenge and encouragement of the extremely minimal strategy when it comes to choosing is nice it seems a bit odd for the game to present you with all of those nice boosters only to let you use such a low amount per mission. And you're only allowed to equip & unequip upgrades when choosing a character.
There are 9 main missions in all with maps sometimes being very linear and others being a little more open. Almost each mission contains one optional "secondary objective" that are merely there to give you a bigger high score and/or achievements for completing them. Plenty of these you don't really pay much attention to as you finish them along the way in the more linear maps however there are a few that have you driving off around the map a bit but again they're optional. The primary objectives are simple and bluntly pointed out via the dialogue and a waypoint indicator thing for the most part. If you plan on roaming the map a bit for those secondary objectives you'd have to be weary of the three-minute timer that will eventually set if you take too long not completing the current primary objective. If you can get through each mission without getting a game over they go somewhat fast.
The difficulty settings range from Easy, Normal, to Hardcore. The game being arcadey as it is, it uses a lives system which I think works well here as it adds a bit more tension to the possible challenges it sets, at least in Hardcore mode where you take crazier damage and you only have 3 lives and wasting them all means you'd have to start the entire mission all over again. Easy mode gives you an unlimited amount of lives and the only thing you'd have to worry about in this setting is the timer that would eventually come. Normal gives 5 lives.
It's a simple game with simple objectives and simple ways of getting through them where it's all done pretty alright.
1. Time limit - Why do devs put this into games? They want you to speed through the game? One of the most fun things about this game is driving around shooting stuff, but try and have fun in this by killing everything and you are punished with a countdo...
I watched a few reviews for this and they said the single player game is a blast but co-op online "has issues". They never said what the issues were though. Can anyone enlighten me as to how well the co-op works? What kind of match-making does it use, and...
