Review: Heavy Fire Black Arms 3D

heavy fire 3d black arms (1)

Deep within the overgrown jungles of South America, a group of highly trained US marines head out for their latest secret mission; to take down the largest international arms trafficking cartel known as Fuerza de Voluntad. Your soldier, Will is one of the experienced marines ready to charge through the treacherous jungle environment in this long standing heated war. Immerse yourself in this awesome military 3D shooter as you shoot down enemy aircrafts, smashing through and interacting with the hostile environment. Ride aboard helicopters and tanks aiming to vanquish the entire cartel with the use of powerful upgradable weapons for a total military show down!

Cons:

  • Average looking graphics that look slightly better through the 3D. The animations of the enemies can be comical, But it has charm.
  • Gives you an arcade light gun experience without all the light guns and arcade unit.
  • Customisable weapons that give the game a bit of length and replay ability.
  • Control options are quite big for a budget game.Giving you options like touch screen reloading, or use the stick or a button. All options are available all the time so you can use whatever whenever and on the fly.
  • Local Leader board and the game allows 3 separate profiles.
  • Uses the camera to put your face on your soldier for your profile.
  • Nice areas to explore in the jungle with a lot of arcade action and set pieces kicking off.
  • Huge arsenal of guns to purchase in game.

Cons:

  • Game is brutally hard for the first few games, Meaning you need to learn the layout of the level, where enemies spawn etc in order to proceed.
  • The colour palette is bland and dark, Making out enemies can be tricky at times.
  • You can only be hit 5 times then its game over, Never cam across any med packs or anything to remedy this.
  • Dying halfway through a level restarts you back at the beginning. No check points were used.

In Summary, For the low price you pay for the game, You can get some enjoyment from the game. With a time crisis/Operation Wolf feel to it, Old school players will easily relate to the genre. Yes its hard and has flaws but so does Dark Souls and that does alright. Hardly the right games to compare but you know what I mean. For a quick pick up and play title it ticks more boxes than it crosses out. You wont enjoy the game if you plan on doing marathon sessions and to be honest the game isnt long enough for that As a arcade light gun fanatic I enjoy the game play and will continue to have it for a quick blaster.

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!
