Description: The future semi-destroyed world is divided into hundreds of districts competing with each other. The central government is weak. As the final encounter is approaching, a confrontation between the two leading groups gets fierce. The only three things you know are that you are an agent infiltrated into the enemy’s secret laboratory with the aim to steal important data, that you need to escape, and that yours is a good cause. But if it is so, why don’t you remember anything else?
Review: While there are numerous shortcomings with Always Higher I have to give credit for the idea of the game and indeed the graphics as it does look pretty good given its age. Being able to look downwards and upwards in this game gives the otherwise boring scenery some level of immersion. But it is the shortcomings that almost stop me from recommending this game, especially the week sounding guns and indeed action parts, they just feel so boring and get repetitive really quickly. It’s a shame the developer didn’t keep working on this as I do like it, especially for the low price of £2.89. I still feel this is worth a look even if it is too look at a game that could have been so much better.
