Public Opinion
Overall Rating: 7.8
  • 8Great game. Good graphics, music, sound, and gameplay. I played on medium and breezed through the game, only losing when bad guys suddenly appeared on the screen where I happened to be positioned. If it wasn't for that, it'd be worth a 9.
  • 6Graphics are good with some very nice particle effects. Sound effects could use some work. Some of the music doesn't really fit the game. Weapons purchase system is cool. The gameplay is too easy and boring. There's just too much empty space to move around in, making it easy to avoid having to fire on most enemies except the bosses. More variation in enemy attack and movement patterns would be nice.
  • 8A decent shooter game, inspired by Raptor. Has alot of different weapons to use, and a good number of enemies to blow to bits. The explosion and sound effects are done well. The bosses seemed to be way overdone, though. The first boss shot patterns are impossible to avoid!
