At first before I get into the review, let me explain the game:
1. No video options. Stuck to monitor's maximum hertz. When I mean no video options, I mean like no graphical options like consoles. No resolution, nothing. Guise of the Wolf (which only had a resolution option) even has an option!
2. You have a score at the bottom of your screen. In my opinion, useless.
3. It's an on-rails shooter by Teyon, the same people who made Rambo: The Video Game. BUT, because this was originally made for the Xbox 360 in 2011, they get a free pass right? WRONG!
4. One of the worst ports to PC I've ever seen.
I thought to myself as I saw a bundle with this game in it. "I've beaten Ride to Hell: Retribution, nearly beaten Rambo: The Video Game, played the Slaughtering Grounds and The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, how bad can it be?"
OH GOD. So I buy this bundle from bundlestars.com
(BTW, great website) for $3.49. I open the game to loud audio and it says, "Controller recommended" so I turn on my wireless Xbox 360 controller for Windows. Ok, three options in the Audio, that's ok. "But I have to use the triggers to change them and press X to accept the options?" From there on, I knew this would be going downhill fast. So I boot up the campaign to see 12 missions and a Veteran mode. I was aparently in the "Rookie" section because I probably would have to beat the game to go into the "Veteran" mode. That's fine. Launching the game, I hear an OK backstory of a soldier and then we arrive on a helicopter to Afghanistan. The first thing I noticed was the sterotype that all Afghans wear either turbans or balacavas. I thought, "Wonderful". The graphics are ok for 2011, so I try to move my standards down a little to that year. When I got into the game though...
The first thing I noticed was the M16 they supplied me with. When you run out of ammo, you have an infinite extra ammo Berreta they switch you over to when you run out of ammo. I'm surprised they added an actually "ammo" feature. When I shoot the gun for the very first time... I said, "The Slaughtering Grounds and Ride to Hell: Retribution have better sound quality than this!" The gun sounded like you tapped a button on your controller. The pistol has a very small sound. Then I noticed that I was invincible. I couldn't die, like I was a god. My health wouldn't go down (speaking of which there is no difficulty option) and then I got worried. After I beat the first level, I'd rather "masturbate with sandpaper".
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! $3.00 isn't worth it, heck, it's worth $0.05 for maybe a giggle with your friends.
The only reason it gets 0.3 is because the ok graphics for 2011. For people like me who like to play the dark-depths-of-hell games like me, this might be worth it to you. The only other reason I'd get it is if you love arcade rail-shooters that much. Everyone else: STAY AWAY FOR YOUR LIFE!
P.S: RAMBO: THE VIDEOGAME IS BETTER BY INFINITE AMOUNTS COMPARED TO THIS!
