Ill keep this one short

This is a nice game resembling a lot of the aspects of a very old (and quite awesome) game like Raptor.

The online features give it some replayability and overall you can have some decent fun playing the campaign or modes in between games, also very reasonable price.

While overall the game concept is ok and one can have fun with the game, i cannot completely recommend it due to some of the performance holes this game has. Particularly with co op or any splitscreen mode, the game fails to render properly and completely breaks the fps on high end machines. Also it can get jammed or it can freeze upon exit. Those issues should be addressed to be able to recomend this

Great Game. Its a top down shooter where you progress through a battlefield Beating up small-fry and challenge the boss at the end.

For a couple of hours you will be entertained, it is well worth your money. Although after 4 hours it begins getting a bit repetitive.

It has an interesting premise, but the game ends up feeling either unfair or slow. The enemy design is extremly generic, and most of the upgrades make little to no difference in the game : a shoot'em up should already provide you with enough upgrades to go on in a single stage, not obbly you to loot for them in other levels. Anyways, games like Steredeen reproduce this concept way better than this one.

This game is bad.
The gameplay is bad. The background is good. And if I kill them sometimes they won't die maybe it is a bug.
And you can get trading cards.

Cool take on a bullet hell shooter. But the lack of in game temporary picks ups makes the usually visceral experience provided by the genre absent. Levelling up and being able to customise are good additions though. Having two seperate fire buttons for ground and sky enemies would have surely looked better on paper than it feels in game. Would prefer all guns blazing and coming into contact with the first enemy they hit vertically on the screen. As someone who accidentally flips through text based tutorials I did not figure out that there were ground and sky buttons until around the 3 or 4th game. Fire originating from ground enemies is hard to judge as it is in a 3d space when the view is 2.5d or potentially isometric.

Well worth a look if you are into the genre but it is kind of a mixed bag.

In any argument regarding Revolution Ace, one conclusion stands unavoidably unequivocal: Revolution Ace is revolutionary and acey. Those operating under the seemingly innocuous misapprehension that the game is a boring rip-off of Raptor should endeavor to be more critical when allowing information of dubious provenance to consume their valuable and scarce intracranial space.

If there was such a category as "casual shmup" this would be it

If you look for challenging gameplay, look elsewhere. This game has no hitbox and no complicated bullet patterns. It will not challenge your reflexes. It does not require a lot of concentration. The difficulty level is either easy(when you have sufficent upgrades) or literally impossible(if you dont have sufficent upgrades).

Play if you are stressed and just want to shoot something without paying much attention to what is it that you're shooting.

Raptor: Call of the Shadows. Sounds familiar?

Well, that's not it. But this game did its best to borrow from the classics. Sometimes it even feels like it's almost there.
Worth seeing.

10/10 for the effort & nostalgy
8/10 for the game itself.
