Summary

Do you remember or ever heard of The Club? It was a shooter from SEGA whereby you would run through a level and kill enemies to rack up combos and score, you could destroy environmental hazards to help boost your score. Why am o saying this? Well, Sherwood Extreme is a hot take on that premise, going for a more low poly graphic style and chucking in a Max Payne slowdown shooting mechanic, Sherwood Extreme is a highly addictive and repayable game. You get a rolling set of random events so you always have a fresh goal for a level, talking of levels they are all wildly different from snow to forests to lava but there aren’t many of them. Missions combat this but so do random modifiers that the missions add so enemies may be more aggressive or act weird like jumping all the time or they could all have rocket launchers! Sherwood Extreme really is a lot of fun and I played it for a solid week but the lack of level variation and dodgy hit detection killed my desire to keep coming back, basically Sherwood Extreme is a good chill out game for every now and then sessions rather than a true obsession.

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!
