Description: So, you’ve finally decided to show up, eh? Do you even know what you’re here for? Whatever. Our previous subjects kept dying on us, so you’ll have to do. Just stand there and destroy the turrets before they destroy you. Oh, and please do your best to not suck like the others. What do you mean there are too many of them? Sigh, are you that slow? Just suck in what the turrets are hitting you with and fire back a huge explosive shot! Also, in case you haven’t noticed, (which I doubt you have, with your dimwittedness) the lasers are dangerous too. And they’re fast. You might want to avoid them if you have any attachment to life, not that it matters to us. Don’t worry, if the worst happens, there’re others waiting to take your place. But DO try and stay alive anyway, we can’t afford to keep replacing test dummies.
Review: Danger Room is a 360 wave shooter with a nice sci-fi look. While basic in every way it is quite a blast to play (no pun intended). The guns feel good to shoot and the action gets quite manic at times. But it is the lack of variety here that is a big killer. It’s the same few enemies over and over and the arena doesn’t change much either. Sure, it’s fun at the start, but you soon get bored with it. That brings me nicely onto the asking price of £4.79 which if you ask me is about £4.79 too much. I’m sure if you get this as part of a cheap bundle or super-sale you might enjoy it for a little while, but that is all I would recommend.
