Summary

Omega Strike is very safe. It plays like an action Metroidvania with smart level design and big boss battles, Its safe because a lot of the mechanics in the game have been seen many times before in other games, For that not only is it safe, Its content light. Yes you can upgrade weapons but that is slow and again safe, Boss battles look great but are very basic and umm safe. Just because its safe doesn’t mean its a boring must avoid title, Far from it. Its safe but very playable as it has polished all the tired mechanics and made them feel fresh in places. Its a game that will have you entertained for many hours, It just won’t have many if any wow factors or distinguishing points of interest. It is not bad it is just not groundbreaking. Omega Strike is safe.

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!
