Review: I have to give credit to ‘Putridness’ where it is due. This really is the biggest mess of a game I have played in a long time! While I expect issues with any Early Access game this game is a broken, mess of a game that is so full of glitches and issues that it is pretty much unplayable. It also says the game is “room-scale” only and requires at least 2m x 1.5m play area. That is simply not true and you can play it sat down on a swivel chair because there is no snap turning, but full locomotion.

It doesn’t matter that I couldn’t even start the game in the first try anyway because the stupid selector ball vanished (see gameplay video) or that I couldn’t even get the gun to load, what matters is that this game will never be worth the £9.29 unless it was remade with a lot more effort in terms of graphics and content. This is not a game anyone should be recommending at the moment, but maybe after a lot more work (and a MASSIVE price drop), it will be worth a look.
