Have you ever wanted to step into the boots of a wanted Space Pirate hell bent on destroying an evil psychopathic war criminal no matter to cost or how many people or mutants stand in your way? Then this might just be the game for you.
First off this game is fantastic; from start to finish I had unending amounts of fun. You should buy this game and enjoy the ride. The action s explosive from the get go, you literally kick the crap out of everything you see. No metaphor here, you actually kick people into walls, spikes, fires, pretty much anything that would kill them dead. And that’s not mentioning the ability to fling them through the air using some future tech whip.
Also the guns, they are crazy fun to use. Ranging from a simple, if not cool, assault rifle to a harpoon gun that fires drill bits that fling people to their doom and everything in-between. My favourite was the sniper rifle that lets you guide the bullet right into the enemy’s faces before making them explode killing everyone stood next to them. Every weapon has a super charge attack that lets you rain destruction down on everyone stood in your way. For the gunplay alone this game is fantastic.
Now the “skillshots”, the game literally rewards you for killing people in inventive ways. Want to blow someone in half with a shotgun, do you want the top or bottom half. Do you want to melt people with a super charged bullet; can you get two at once? I loved it and hunting down all of them takes a while and a great amount of skill sometimes.
The characters are rather bland but they do have some memorable lines and the banter between them is pretty funny. I liked how they played out and interacted with each other yet they didn’t steal the attention from the action which is the real star of this title. The storyline is standard, a quest for vengeance and hope. Of course it takes place on an alien world in a tourist resort ruined by some and alien world over run by ex-cons and mutants, so a little different there.
As for the world itself, it is outstanding, everything is beautiful and I found myself just staring at the backgrounds and wondering what happened to this place. Also the ability to see the location of previous levels in the distance was something I loved; you could see your progress across the city. The set pieces are awesome, all of them stand out and I am sure you will enjoy just exploring the world around you as you trudge knee deep through the blood and guts of your enemies.
Go out and buy this right now, load it up and play it as soon as you can and you will not be disappointed. If you love action, awesome guns and one liners you will love this game.
Have Fun ^_^
