Description: You’re a security guard on Minutor-CCXVI. You’re having a boring day and you fallen asleep in the security room. Suddenly the computer shows security alerts. You check the security cameras and you can’t see anything. But the system is captured by the space pirates, they sent a virus called Malicious Payload to the mainframe. The ship undergoes a loss of energy and begins to drift through space. You come out of the security room to understand what happened, but the miner-bots have turned into lethal robots. You think you can save the ship?

Review: ‘Malicious Payload’ is a robot sci-fi shooter with more slo-mo effects than all 3 Matrix films. It all starts off rather promising and you start to believe that this will be a good game, but sadly things soon fall apart once you get into the gameplay. The graphics are not great either, but not terrible, but the guns/action is the worst part about this game for sure, with hardly any feedback or sound effects at all, shooting feels more like a water pistol than a powerful laser gun. Then there is the lack of content as a whole which makes the current £7.19 asking price seem rather high. If this game was a quid or two I might still recommend it, but paying full price will only leave most people feeling disappointed.
