Summary

I can see exactly what the devs are going for here, they are taking the arena shooter but, adding in a Mech style gun system and jetpacks in a huge open space. It works, it’s a game that is ambitious but it already sets a good example. I mean sure it’s lacking in a lot of ways from Controller rebinds to level variation and I would love to see more over the top explosions and gunfire. I liked what I played and the gunplay is loose but the lock on negates quite a lot, I’m keen to see where this goes, it’s one to keep an eye on and grab it if you don’t mind playing solo against bots or have a group of friends as the servers are criminally underpopulated. Exocorps, think Doom Mech warriors and you are near enough there! Oh and jetpacks!
