This is a pretty good distraction to keep you busy for around an hour if you're into shooters, and a GREAT re-imagining of the original story to Yar's Revenge. This is a dual-analog on-rails shoot-em-up that's easy to pick up. The soundtrack is actually really good.

Alas, I don't think this game is worth $10. Be sure to keep an eye on it during the Steam sales, though.

Absolutely horrible controls! As a big on-rails shooter fan, I was vaguely looking forward to this, but it just plays so badly. Some interesting ideas, and it looks pretty good.

I'd say one of the worst aspects, even if only a subtle one, is the player and the on-screen gameplay feel... kind of detatched, as if the player doesn't exist in the same world, almost as if it's simply a video in the back ground that you can vaguely interact with.

All in all it's just kind of mediocre. I knew it was going to be bad after hearing the reviews of the xbox 360 version, but... it's not even 'so bad it's good', just really really bland. Avoid.

Nice music, great visual style, runs smooth.

The. Worst. Controls. Ever. for a rail shooter. Shudder...

Worth it if you're absolutely die-hard about rail shooters or you have fond memories of playing Yar's Revenge on the Atari 2600. Otherwise, leave it be.
