I voted for this on greenlight when it was getting hit with backlash for the general idea, and to my surprise...
it was a glorified flash game for $2. I remember being excited about this when it hit steam and passed it's greenlight age,
but the only questionable thing was it's price. Then I found out that this game was originally on XBLA, but what I also found out was that it was never very POPULAR.
The game plays OKAY but why it needs to take SO long to setup is far beyond me. But my biggest gripe with this game is it's "HUMOR". Okay, I do admit the first part WAS funny, but that was only because of how random it was. The rest of the jokes in this game AREN'T funny. I literally heard the guy I was playing as say "WHOOPS, YOU DEAD" as he killed a bird 20 times... in the 14 minutes or so I've played. But then there are the jokes that try to hard and end up being something else, for example, in the first level, a bird with bombs strapped to it runs at you. It was random and it might have been funny if the main character didn't mention TERRORISM, so instead of getting a bad laugh, I ended up screaming "THAT'S JUST WRONG".
The gameplay gets REALLY tiresome after a while as well, and the game gets REALLY repetitive after some time.
Bird Assassin's levels go a little something like this:
1) KILL BIRDS
2) PLAY A POINTLESS MINIGAME JUST BECAUSE
3) SEE SOME RANDOM, OFTEN UNFUNNY, ♥♥♥♥ HAPPEN
and that's it.
The bushes "hurt you" but you they're just there to add "challenge" to an already SUPER EASY game, and during the last part in level 2, they get in the way, and you will DIE.
Overall I wanted to go into bird assassin loving it. I wanted to laugh allot, but all I got was a retitive, often boring, and unfunny game. I will say this again, the first scene to the game is FUNNY, but theres one fatal flaw to it: THE STORY SUCKS. And that just about sums it up.
I do not recommend Bird Assassin unless you like to spend your money on FLASH GAMES.
