The negative reviews are not based on the gameplay itself, but other aspects.

This is a really good game. It's a 2d fighting game almost with a vertical element. Its not easy as to inflict damage you can't just shoot toward the enemies but your curosr has to be directly on them. There is also melee wepons for when you get close. It really works well. The biggest downside for most people is the limited number of people playing at any given time. an example on a saturday night I find a game but there's only 1-3 games. This has limited my play time. Also there is no dlc beyond purchaseable skins for weapons/characters. But the game itself imo is brillant and incredibly fun. I say buy. We need more people.

Enjoy!

The mechanics are good and it can be fun to play but the player-base is non-existent. The game has been abandoned and it's dead. It has been this way since soon after launch and nothing was done about it by the developers to gain players or to market it as a multi-player skill based game.

The Showdown Effect is bad.

It was fun while it lasted: nice ensemble of characters, who brought back some good memories, 80’s and 90’s action movies, y’know. Some skill needed to aim and shoot, that gave made it interesting to play, but learn a bit first. Then there were some arenas for whose showdowns.

And there was a sense of promise, that we’d get ourselves new arenas, and new characters and new weapons, and that it would last. And may be some new achievements, too. To keep it warm, to get people engaged.

That sense lied. The game was stillborn experiment to get some money from paid content. Should've known from the start.

Plantas rodadoras y tufillo a cadáver.

Te lo describiré en tres palabras: Rápido, divertido y… muerto.

The Showdown Effect es un juego de plataformas orientado a las partidas multijugador, las partidas son muy adictivas y la mejor forma de ganar es siendo más hábil en tu desplazamiento por el campo de juego que tus adversarios. Los mapas están muy bien diseñados, tanto desde el punto de vista jugable como artístico. Los personajes lo mismo.

Existe también una tienda en la que puedes comprar personalizaciones para tus armas y atuendos y que puedes pagar con puntos ganados en las partidas, un factor que se agradece.

El único y gran defecto que ha matado a este juego es que no hay nadie jugándolo, sin eso no vale ni un céntimo. Si algún día resurge (cosa que dudo), cómpralo.

Such a fun game. Had a LAN get together with a few friends and we were practically crying with laughter at some of the 80's action multiplayer shenanigans. Would play again (and again... and again). :D

Wonderful game with excellent controls. Despite thatm the game presents one massive problem: you can't play it. It's multiplayer only and the game is dead. The few games you can find are private matches and unless you have a group of friends who have this game, that means that you are stuck looking at the Uninstalling Game window. If you do have friends with it, or can get the 4 pack, get it.

This game was incredible back in the day - hilariously fun, stylish, polite community, but it's dead as a rock. Behold the consequences of multiplayer only titles - if it had a campaign or even just bots and a solo skirmish mode, I'd still be playing it.

If you can get four or more friends in on this, it's great fun.

Yes, it's dead in public multiplayer, but that's what the friends list is for. The gameplay is hectic and oftentimes hilarious, and almost always very entertaining.

It was fun while it lasted: nice ensemble of characters, who brought back some good memories, 80’s and 90’s action movies, y’know. Some skill needed to aim and shoot, that gave made it interesting to play, but learn a bit first. Then there were some arenas for whose showdowns.

8.5/10 Would burst my eardrums with default volume again. (the rating is serious though)

Pros:
Fluid combat mechanics: Your moves strike with the right kind of rythm, and feels good in many ways that cannot be captured in words

Unlockable Cosmetics: Although there are some paid-skins, most of them can be purchased via a reasonable amount of in-game currency.

Easy to find your friends: Because of the low player count, it is rare to have more than 1 or 2 game lobbies open. Don't go thinking this means you will be alone though. If you open up a lobby, after a few minutes, you are bound to find someone to play with.

Particle Physics Interaction: Though it can sometimes get a bit frustrating, it is absolutely gorgeuos. You don't know what it's like until you fire your first machinegun into a room full of walls, barrels, and of course, unsuspecting players.

cons:
The game can feel pretty empty: This is really only because of the games realative unpopularity, but it is really it's only major flaw.

The in-game volume defaults to levels that could cause some peoples eardrums to burst.


Summary:
I think that for it's price tag, it's definitely worth it. This would be even more true if more people played this game. So go, buy the 4-pack and spread this game around. (8.5/10)

If you disagree with this review, feel free to leave a comment below describing where I was wrong. Thank you.

This game was the best source of multiplayer craziness that I long for in a game. It's fast-paced insanity with old references that harken back to aged action movies like Terminator or the old character tropes like: "Cop that eats donuts and fights to avenge his partner" to "Scientist that experimented on himself, and fights to control his augmented body."

All the characters have a special ability and plenty of personality to make them feel fresh... (However some abilities are rather cheap) and there are plenty of different guns like pistols, snipers, rocket launchers, throwing knives, even swords! Still not enough tools of destruction? Well you can bash someone's head in with a prop you found on the level! See that pickaxe stuck in the wall? TAKE IT AND SLICE SOMEONE IN HALF WITH ONE CLEAN SWING! See that little cross with Jesus on it? PUNISH THE NONBELIEVERS! See that pillow on the couch? KILL THEM WITH THE ♥♥♥♥ING PILLOW

What's that? You wanna buy this game? Well then, I just have to say--

Please don't.

No, really don't. It's a waste. Look, I know I just went on briefly about how I like the game, hell I've spent quite some time in it, and every 2 days I check the game news to see if they've announced anything because I loved it so much. But it's dead. Like... SUPER dead. Nobody plays this game, and if someone IS playing, they're so good it isn't even funny. It's just sad that they've spend so much time being good at a dead game.

I still think this is the best multiplayer action game ever, but unfortunately it's dead. And Arrowhead pulled their support from the game, so it's gone for good. Stay away from this game.

This was a superb game! Unfortunately, now that it is older the amount of people who play it has dwindled down to a handful of players. I still enjoy this greatly when I play it with my friends who have it! I strongly feel they should make it free to play so the community gets a rebirth. If you want to buy this game make sure you have friends who will or do play it. Even with the dead community it is still fun!
