  • Hacks are buffs like more health or more damage with certain guns, only good for that run.
  • Chests are color-coded for the type of loot you may get from it.
  • Satisfying gunplay.
  • Nailed the excitement of opening chests.
  • Stats and MVP awards between areas in mp.
  • Powers are earned and equipped onto two slots, they regen over time and vary in what they do from damage to healing. Level up and U lock them, you can change them at waypoint areas.
  • Waypoint areas are what I call the small rooms that appear generally halfway through a level, here you can buy new guns, refill ammo and health, buy a difficulty raise and swap out any powers you have unlocked and play a quick game of PvP.
  • Cheap price point.
  • PvP mode grants unique rewards and plays like a standard shooter with whacky guns.
  • The main hub can house other players.

Arcadegeddon Review Cons:

  • Long matchmaking times.
  • The time between areas in multiplayer is long.
  • The text is really small and hard to read.
  • You have to start at the low level first every run and it takes a long time to build it up.
  • In multiplayer you cannot ping items or locations.
  • In multiplayer, the loot is first come first served.
  • The initial start is slow as you do errands and tutorial sections that are slow.
  • No way to skip parts you may have done before.
  • Levels and locations repeat way too often.
  • Cannot import your save from another platform.
  • At the moment you are grinding for nothing more than cosmetics and new powers but even then that takes a while.
  • The runs can get very long.
  • A lot of grinding to get cool gun skins and outfits.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
