“The game's shelf-life is unlimited - even when you've completed all the missions, you're still going to want to plug this in and play it for a quick blast. There's no finer advertisement for the Lynx than Blue Lightning. It's one seriously excellent testosterone blastorama. Load, lock and unleash.”
