Tags: Game Of The Year, review
Funny enough, we gave this game 3 Games Of The Year and never reviewed it as the site was in down time. First of all this is a review of the main single player game not the add-on or the promised multiplayer. Also view this as proof that I’m not done with the site, I’m just part time these days.
Let’s get it out of the way, this is a great looking game, if not the best looking non-Unreal Engine 3 game on the iOS. The game is more or less a cover based shooter in the vain of Gears Of War on the XBox, however what is weird is that the game has a superb level design to top off those sexy as hell graphics.
The story is a bit B-Movie, but at least it’s not trying to be a clone game (see Gameloft) and yes the story isn’t the greatest, but it does drive the story with a little twist towards the end. The shock comes in the form that the voice acting is one of the best I have ever seen in a non-high end console game. The lead is superb, the support is sarcastic and witty while the main big bad sounds over the top and camp. To be fair he turns it into a Evil Dead to The Army Of Darkness in the world of silly comedy.
There are some brilliant set pieces, like being chased by a massive driller-thing. There are also collectables which add extra content to the storyline.These don’t really make you want to replay the game, but it’s there if you want that 100% complete or those Game Centre achievements.
The question still hangs over this game, it’s trying to be a console game in the mobile space. Well we gave it 3 Game Of The Year awards and said that this was the future of mobile gaming. Mad Finger has released a Add-On pack, an extra 4 mission a new gun and Bad. Some great new voice acting and short story. There’s talk of a multiplayer on the way- everything this game can do is still coming. The Add-On Pack will be review later…
Overall The game is superb, great story, great acting and some of the best game flow you’ll ever play however and yes, there’s a however, it’s short. I took between 4-6 hours to beat the game and yes I know, I’m a “hardcore” gamer but this is something I have heard from many people that it’s a little short, still it’s worth the cost and Mad Finger should be supported, at least they ain’t just keeping to one game and adding numbers at the end on a never ending love affair (see Activision)
