I got this game from an indie bundle and I was quite keen on it before installing it. That Lego-style TPS caught my attention and got a good feeling about it.
What a fool I was.
This is surely one of the worst indie games I've ever played. Everything makes me feel now that I've been scammed, betrayed. I absolutely approve the indie game generation (and actually I'm more into them than into triple-A games) but this is a paradigmatical way of "let's make something, it might give us money". And sure, you can say "hey, don't be so bad to them, they're probably a very little company", but this becomes senseless when you see that games such as Braid, Hotline Miami, VVVVVV, Super Meat Boy, FEZ and many others have been made by 1-2 people each and they're absolutely astonishing. So this is not an excuse.
I was running this game on the maximum settings (it doesn't have any high requirements anyway) and oh my god, the number of mistakes is so huge you should see it for yourself. ALL shadows were going crazy, in EVERY single map. Almost all textlines somehow got crazy too and were IMPOSSIBLE to read, like in a super low resolution. So actually I had to guess what every option did by pressing it. If you don't believe it I do not have any inconvinient in uploading screenshots.
The soundtrack was... what could I say? There's only 1 track. Or maybe not. I don't know. If there's more than one, then all of them feels the same. The same boring. Even on the menus. And even though I've listened the same music all way through my total gameplay, I've already forgotten how it sounds.
The AI. Oh my damn God, this is one of the most ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ AI's I've faced in a very long time. It can be fooled the SAME WAY on Easy than on Extreme difficulty. ALL enemies follow some patterns that after 1-2 waves will be absolutely predictible. Jesus, there was one time where an enemy was facing me but without shooting a single bullet. I stared at him for ten minutes. TEN MINUTES. He didn't do a thing. Again, you won't even image how sad the enemies react until you test it.
The game is also astonishingly short. Yet it felt long, because of how boring it was. All chapters were wave-based, and since this game is 1 player-only (together with a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ AI), guess how similar everything looked like. The only stage I actually enjoyed was the chicken massacre one.
This was one of those VERY FEW games I ended up playing only for achievements, which were surprisingly rewarding. Yet some of them were unfairly grind-based, condemning you to stay more hours than you wanted to. Since I like achievements and hate to leave things undone, this was quite a pain even if it only took me about 4h to unlock all of them.
Overall, do yourself a favour and DO NOT buy or play this garbage. I've been critically disappointed and I'm sure you have plenty of better games in your library. Which isn't hard at all. Only play this game if you wanna check my words and see how bad this game is.
2/10 would uninstall again
