Review: Fair play, games don’t get much more mixed up than ‘Shooter’s Island’. On the one hand, you have a beautiful, colourful island that reminds me very much of ‘Zelda Breath of the Wild’. You are free to explore the island, climb the hills and enjoy the beautiful blue seas lapping all around it. But then you have this cheap ass shooting range game bolted onto the top of the island that if you ask me ruins the enjoyment of the island! You get 3 guns and a handful of game modes, of which every area copies. Oh, and there are 2 timed shooting runs as well. If this had been a cutesy adventure game, or even a cartoon animal hunting game (child-friendly of course) it would have been amazing, but it’s not, it’s clearly an asset flip of some kind and not one that is worth anyone’s time.
