Description: You battle your way through a myriad of different challenges from exploring space stations, shooting drones, commanding a space shuttle, to defending against giant enemy bosses, surviving intense trap rooms and figuring out how to control devices to defeat your enemies. Also, there is The Game Hub, which is full of puzzles and achievements to unlock, as well as a bunch of mini-games, for when you need a relaxing break from the intensity of V.A.D itself.
Review: After watching the trailer for ‘VAD – Virtually Assured Destruction’ below you might expect this game to be an all-action sci-fi game with loads to do and interactive with. But that is not the case here at all, in fact, it is not so much a game at all, more a series of mini-games sewn together to make a full game. But I don’t think that is a bad thing here. The game really mixes up your expectations and delivers something unexpected. Say what you like about VAD, but it looks good, has a good few hours of gameplay and it only costs £7.19. I wouldn’t want to pay anything more than that, but for that price, I think this is well worth a shot.
