Anyone buy this and like it?

I played the demo, and it felt like a cross between Super Smash TV and Shadowrun. AKA Isometric RPG/Shooter.

I tried the demo, and it was mildly fun. I wanted to hear an opinion of someone who may have played the whole way through.

The lighting effects were pretty cool for this type of game.

Just reviewed it myself.  I enjoyed it.  It has its fair share of problems, but it isn't bad.

Hehe, your review mimiced my thoughts exactly.

You were able to shed light on how quickly you can run through it as well as the repetitive game play down the road.

I guess I'll wait till it hits the $9.99 bin.  :lol:

It got repetative for me towards the end of the demo.

Now fundamentally, it's a good game, it's just that they needed to mix things up now that they nailed the core gameplay.  Not to mention hire a writer to jazz up the plot.

True that, other than a nice twist at the end, the plot is very derivative of many other plots.

I've played though most of the game (I'm on the second to last level, I think), and I've throughly enjoyed it.

If you go in expecting a basic (but fun) old-school shooter, you'll enjoy it. Or, in my case, I was reminded of the classic Crusader games (sans the ability to blow up everything in sight), and instantly fell in love with it. biggrin

Overall, a basic (yet fun) game that's well worth the purchase price.

Ya i got mine too smile Already beat the game, very fun game. There are a lot of fast pace spots in the game that make it very interesting and cool to play, but it is also a very short game. The Co-op is only for playing on the same computer (was a little dissapointed) but overall i love the game.

Thanks for the game.
