Description: The Armclaw Experiment is a sandbox game. There are no missions or objectives, penalties or rewards, and there are no hand-holding tutorials. You can use your hooks to swing around and explore the city, hunt and grab the randomly placed stars in the map or have fun grabbing onto and wrecking helicopters. What you do is up to you.
Review: ‘The Armclaw Experiment’ is little more than an interactive experience in which you can glide around a city using “Armclaws” very much like Spiderman, only with chains. But that is about all there is to say about this as there is no game here, no challenge, just a demo of sorts. It’s fun for a short while I suppose, but then you start to feel ill and you realise there is nothing else to do. It’s hard to justify this for £3.99 and I really wish it was free, so until it is I might suggest you leave it well alone.
