Great mechanics and pacing. The camera is very frustrating at time.

Overhead Mech Twin Stick Shooter with gorgeous graphics, bullet hell inspiration, coop and plenty of content. Leaderboards, 3 difficulty levels, cloud saves via Origin through Steam o_0 and an ace presentation. Picked this up in the EA "indie" bundle and this one shooter is just about worth the cost of the whole bundle.

Gatling Gears is an excellent indie game in almost all respects and it is definitely worth the price of entry. Gatling Gears is a top down, "two joystick" (you can move and shoot in different directions) action arcade game with very modest level-up RPG elements. The campaign is a respectable +6 hours. While the narrative is rather vapid, it's hard to notice since the action is perfectly paced and the levels are solid. The only other thing that is lacking is the number of players ready for co-op - multiplayer is essentially limited to local games only, since there is no drop-in multiplayer mode. Had this game been released in the arcades, I would have probably spent a ton of money plugging quarters into a Gatling Gears arcade machine.

In a world where Renegade Ops didn't exist, this might be a solid title, but it does, and so it's kinda lame. Being saddled with that horrible "we're hedging our bets" proto-Origin EA account stuff that they shoved onto every possible game for a few years (which means a net hiccup can silently eat all your progress by logging you out! the saves require you to be online!) does not help a mediocre-at-best title feel any more fun.

Major fun especially on a HDTV with a controller. The game is so fun and the graphics are quite good for a game of this price. I'd definitely recommend this game. I'd like to see a sequel.
