Sakeworld Review Cons:
- Had the tutorial glitch out a few times and I died on the text pop-up screen.
- Takes a bit of getting used to weapon management.
- Dealing with a group of enemies can be tough at times.
- Every level plays the same from the cops mid-way, the cars you need to blow up, to the boss at the end.
- The music repeats far too often and any tracks without words are dull.
- Very repetitive.
- The trophies are stingy and take way too long with most of them being that you need to complete the game on all difficulties with all characters.
- No replay value.
- Last track of the story.
- No real voice work.
- Doesn’t have online leaderboards.
- Spomgey boss fights.
- Doesn’t really have much variety.
- Having crates just spawn in front of you all the time kind of Ruins the fun.
- It’s more about power-ups and guns rather than fighting.
- Can be hard to make out who is an enemy and who is just a bystander.
