Summary

Initially, the game plays out like a lower budget smash brothers type game, big levels, weapons and abilities for each character. Truth is the games biggest downfall is actually the fighting. It never feels satisfying to hit someone and that’s only if you connect, it always felt like the closer the hit the more chance it goes through them or doesn’t even reach. Levels look fantastic but again the actual layout feels the same and weapons are basic. It’s a game that can have a future with some updates but atm it’s got its woes. Should be an early access game so it can be updated and set the standard.

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!
