About This Game

Jump into the frenzied action and the whacky humor of a pure 2.5D side-scroller!

While they were going to their old high school for what was supposed to be the party of their life, four long-time friends end up in a ghost town full of monstrous creatures.

Alone or in cooperative mode (4 players online and 2 in local play), survive hordes of monsters ready to skin you alive and achieve unique and varied objectives throughout huge and non-linear levels. Choose your character, knock out high-scores and thoroughly explore each stage to gain experience and reach higher levels. Find new weapons, improve your skills, unlock new special moves and devastating powers… and achieve increasingly impressive combos to outdo your friends' high-scores.

Fun with friends. Slightly repetive. You fight the same kind of boss like a bazillion times. Which is getting more and more ridiculous with each time. Still enjoyable.

well as everyone should know final exam is the 3rd game in the obscure series. the other games in the works were cancled as the company went bankrupt and well im unsure who made final exam but its got the school area based on the orignal games. but yeah to the point its a great game with or without friends upto 4 players a rpg ish system in place for new skills combos and such. u can even get new weapons 2 per lvl.

not to froget that u can raise ur health, strength, gun damage, and! explosive damage :3 . but being 4 different charecters that means 4 slightly altered playstyles each get the same weapons but each has stronger and weaker areas.

also yes u can reset ur charecter it would seem incase u wanna begin anew. the monsters grow in type as u move foward and the gameplay has a bit of changeups from the simple bash monsters heads in. one being rescue the kids from the amusement park sounds easy yep... till u reach the pain in the butt kids oh boy... then things slightly get trickyer. oh and dont froget about the awesome vechile part yes it is awesome 4 different weapons to choice from as u move thru the level ^w^ .

overall its a great game and point based system where if u hit bronze silver or gold in a level u gain more skill points which means it makes u work for it a little. about weapons u get a varity of guns and melee items and the fabled chainsaw later on which u can change which u bring with in the custom charecter screen. oh and grenades and moltovs and such bring the pain <3 .

overall id say its a great game u may beat it quickly as only 9 areas but beating a stage on normal unlocks tough and so on making its replay value a bit more. plus the 4 different styles and each with there own unlockable specials 4 per charecter. so grab some friends grab final exam and have some fun this game truely is worth the price. and always remember its always more fun with friends <3 10 of 10

Basically, buy it because it's cheap might eventually lead to Mighty Rocket doing an Obscure 3.

Core gameplay is fun, the beat 'em up parts work pretty well, the characters are samey but have slight differences. Mostly, one "Always on" skill and some special moves, and the damage they deal with specific weapons. It's more fun with friends, but so is anything up to and including getting slaughtered by an ax-wielding maniac. Even the weapons are pretty samey, but it's fairly straightforward to start whacking enemies and never get touched, stringing S combos together in no time.

Not much in the way of story here, generic characters go to town on zombies because zombies are in the way of generic characters, eventually they run into token savior scientist. (Named Adam, no less! Only Heinrich beats that for cliche points!) Should mention that much like Corey from Obscure 2 was a Derrick Whitley expy from Sum 41, Sean is Jarle Bernhoft from Span, which is pretty cool. Although he's browner, for some reason.

Music holds up, although you might wanna pop the youtube repeat on. Horde music is always the same.

Overall, the first five levels hold pretty well, but here's the thing: It's an 8 level game with 4 effective levels, AND it's padded over that. Once per episode, your characters must stop beating people up to do something completely unrelated! Hey, let's toss boxes at this guy while we chase a train! Let's ride flyers and hit other flyers while we're at it! Let's play space invaders! Why? Cause... Those games were 2D too...? The minigames come out of left field and most of them do NOT fit well. When it's not minigames, it's lugging stuff around. Apparently Leafmore has a booming business in demolition. You can tell from all the nitro boxes laying around unsupervised.

As mentioned, you get new levels on 1, 2, 3 and 5, and the rest is repeated. You will surely be familiar with splashy world by the end of this game, tell you that much. It doesn't work against itself as much as you'd think: Being able to get a grasp on the levels quickly means you can blaze through them while racking up your combo the next time you're there, which you'll probably want to do.

You know when Obscure 1 pulled a bait at the end, and it was awesome? When you've just beaten the final boss, your character injects the vaccine, and then, in broad daylight, the final boss comes creeping back up to try and fight you until the very end? That underlined his human nature and the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ situation he was in, a man who had lost what very little he had left? Obscure 2 tried to do that, and... It brought back that one puzzle from 1. Hey, even then, my thoughts were "Hey, more game, cool." Final Exam tries to do that, with a cool minigame, followed by an okay boss, followed by another boss, followed by ANOTHER boss, followed by YET ANOTHER GOD DAMN BOSS ARE YOU KIDDING ME followed by EVEN ANOTHER BOSS ARE YOU EVEN oh it was a bait cool then.

So yeah, it keeps the Obscure formula, if a little mislead at times, it still makes for a fun game, and the best selling point would be that it's pretty cheap. Don't expect any of that caustic humor or videogame references they promise, though. Caustic humor never gets past "Fat guy dies ridiculously" and videogame references can be summed up as "Gordon Freeman had a crowbar, the cake is a lie."

Despite my tendency to underline the negative, I'd say grab it if it's in a sale. Or even if it's not and you like beat 'em ups. On it's own, it's a good game, and I'd say actually being tied to obscure, specially obscure 1, hurts it by comparison.
