Summary

Top-down shooters are very common, it’s almost daily that we get a new one so the market is saturated. Enter Military Base War and you have a very sub-par experience. It’s a top-down shooter with no tutorials, no controller support, and not even a single graphics option! It almost actively goes against everything games stand for. It doesn’t explain itself, it in no way tries to welcome the player, and it’s just not fun to play. OK, the shooting works but when you have no replay value or hook who cares how well it shoots? You don’t need to feel like you are missing out here, Military Base War is bland and uninviting.

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!
