What first started out as a fun co-op beat 'em up turned into the most repetitive mess I've had the displeasure of playing.
How do you make 8 levels and only 5 enemy types work? Repeat them over and over again.
There are 8 stages (supposedly), but really there are only 3. You've got a subway, school and amusement park. Play the Subway level for 2 stages. Then do the amusement park for 2 and then the school 2, back to the amusement park and then back to the school again. It was really sloppy and lazy.
The hordes/packs of enemies that you're required to fight come far too often. This wouldn't be a problem if not for every other room in the game having endless waves that keep respawning.
The artifical length of the game doesn't end with the the same levels and enemies repeating either. Oh, no. You're also forced to backtrack the same level numerous times to get objective pickups for fat npcs. I don't know why they're all fat, but they are. And after collecting these random items for numerous overweight people you then have to escort them.
This game has everyones favorite game features; backtracking, escort missions and infinite enemy spawns.
Get the game if it's $2.50 or less and you really, really like doing the same thing over and over. Otherwise you can find much better co-op beat 'em ups.
