I recently remembered I had a Desura account, and so moved the few games I had on it over to Steam. I decided to install and fire this up for a quick play around and was astounded to find anyone at all playing this game. Admittedly, it was only about 10 or so, but hey, that's more than I saw a few years back on this game!
The game is fun with friends, if a bit simple. The simple gist is one person plays as a giant reptile who needs to weave through a maze, destroying buildings to keep his health up, whilst the majority of players try to kill him using a wide assortment of vehicles and a few try to save him with their healing guns.
Unfortunately, this is as far as the game goes, and the only real novelty you'll have on it after playing as the Omegadon and fighting the Omegalodon (and there is no fun in being a healer, honestly) is discovering the many different vehicles... Even though the majority of them are weaponless and so pretty much useless.
Playing as the Omegalodon is fun the first time, if dull. The rounds are long and it takes a lot to kill you, so for the most part you will just be following a set path, smashing some buildings and taking swipes at people in helicopters. Honestly, it gets a bit dull.
Playing as a soldier or policeman, you'll find yourself instantly dashing to the nearest armed vehicle and following the Omegalodon in relative safety, plinking away at its health. That's it.
For sake of completion, the Enviros, the players who try to keep Omegalodon alive, are armed with healing guns and can use vehicles to stop the military and police.
Due to the third person view and very free control scheme, there's not much in the way of tactics, and more often than not the Omegalodon will win because the other players have more fun just killing each other since it's more of a challenge. As a sandbox game, Omegalodon excels, but for its purpose, not so much.
DESPITE this seemingly slamming review, it is fun! I enjoy it! But I cannot believe that they're asking for £7 to buy it! It is a game you'll play maybe once, and I know newer games you can buy for less than this that will keep you entertained for longer. If it's on sale for say, £3.50, it might be worth getting it so you and a few friends can have a jaunt. But otherwise, this is too much money for a game with little content.
