Megacopter Review Cons:

  • Slight hitches and slowdown in places.
  • Hard to see enemies sometimes due to color clashes and buildings but hiding in trees is the biggest pet peeve.

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!
