A very polished and extremely playable game. A plethora of graphics options (including three (3!!) resolution choices) and brilliant gameplay.

My only issue is that's it's too good. It makes other games look bad. For that reason, I'm going to have do give it a no. If you play this, you'll never be able to play any games ever again because they will all seem inferior to this masterpiece.

Bad Rats is a competitive co-op shooter with great depth. The weapon progession system is intuitive and enjoyable. I always look forward to logging on and levelling up my rat. There are four different rats. Fat rat, small rat, good rat, and bad rat, with Bad Rat obviously being the last unlockable character. I don't mind the character unlocking process but I wish it didn't take 200+ hours to unlock the most powerful rat type. The graphical aesthetic is pleasing and it runs as smoothly as source. Some of the game's advanced mechanics are difficult to grasp, such as no-scoping and 360 degree turns, but otherwise it's a simple game that is difficult to master.
I look forward to exceeding 500 hours in Bad Rats.

I bought this game simply to stop people trying to gift it to me. After the morbid curiosity got to me, I ended up playing it for myself to see what the big fuss was about. Dear lord, save me from this eternal hell. It's ironic that a company named "Strategy First" published this game, because due to the physics reacting differently each time your play, you constantly have to adjust your strategy to succeed in this game. I'm not sure whether I should call this artificial difficulty or designer oversight. I couldn't even make it past the second level because my elaborate Rube Goldberg Machine of rats and everyday objects behaved differently each time.
At the end of the day, curiousity killed the cat; and also some racially insensitive rats.

I can see where Dota 2 got its inspiration from. This game is God's nectar itself; the scrotum that sits gently on the MOBA genre. Bad Rats is the main inspiration for all MOBAs of today's day and age. Meepo himself is just a feeble (and might I add less detailed) version of the rats. However, I have to acknowledge Dota 2's massive graphical improvement over Bad Rats. They said it couldn't be done, but adding a whole 5 pixels to the game really did make it stand above the rest. Bad Rats is neither changing nor evolving, it is the perfect game which guides all others of its kind (Doto 2). It has no genre, for it is like a delta which transcends all genres of gaming. Intuitive game-mechanics drive every aspect of Bad Rats, eventually leading to the complex, unique courrier system that Dota 2 has. The versitility and viability of Bad Rats will be enjoyed for ages to come. Men will look back at the dawn of video game ingenuity, and wonder, ''How can such a masterpiece be recreated? Will there ever be another game to stand the test of time? Will Doto 3 ever come out?'' To them I say, ''No.'' Good Rats, not Bad Rats. Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. Praise it.

The gameplay is subpar but the symbolism is what you really play the game for.
