Subdivision Infinity DX Review Cons:

  • No voice work.
  • Hard to make out enemies.
  • Very weak aim assist.
  • Cannot rebind controls.
  • Feels a bit flat.
  • Music doesn’t seem to fit, almost like someone else is listening to music and has it on too loud so you cant hear your game.
  • Doesn’t help you buy new parts as in if your ship can use them.
  • The selling cost is stupidly small so any mistake is costly.
  • Ships don’t say what parts will fit.
  • The exp system feels kinda pointless as progression seems to do the unlocks more than anything else.
  • I couldn’t mine for ages (free roam) as I couldn’t get a ship that would accept the mining gun.

Summary

Subdivision Infinity DX is a third-person space shooter that plays like an arcade game. You get to shoot bad guys, earn coins and materials for crafting, it boasts a level system whereby killing and finishing levels give exp so you can buy better gear so it ticks that box. Gameplay-wise I found it to be quite flat, the music never sounded like it suited the game, the enemies are small, objectives are even smaller and it started to feel like an intergalactic pixel hunt! The controls are fine but actually moving and shooting never felt good, you had a weak lock-on system and enemies were either too strong or too weak, you never really see any of them up close so you were stuck just looking at explosions and rocks. I mean you can get some game out of Subdivision Infinity DX but it’s not enjoyable, it doesn’t have any unique ideas instead of opting for a bit of that and a bit of this but never actually finishing it. I came away with no hatred but no love either it’s just a middle of the road kinda game or in this case, middle of space vibe.

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!
