Anybody buy this? How is it?
@MB Yeah, its definitely not worth $15. But it seems to be a fairly faithful remake of a classic, with the gas gauge, the level guide at the top of the screen, etc.. But it's a little bland, fairly simple, and the voice acting & one-liners are awful. I also noticed some pop-in (on the PS3 version) which seems kinda ridiculous considering its a sidescroller with fairly small levels. I was also distracted by the "laser" that guides where your gatling gun is pointed, it's this huge fat red line, should have been a much thinner, less intrusive line.
I downloaded the demo last night and found it to be quite enjoyable. I agree that 1200pts is a bit steep, but this price does include the first DLC pack for free. I found the missions to be quite fun, and the zombie stuff adds some variety. I may purchase this, despite the price.
Then again, I'm coming off of a huge Renegade Ops kick, and I'm really into the whole dual stick shooter genre right now. (And yes, I know this technically isn't a dual stick shooter, but it is quite similar.) I also especially enjoyed the helicopter parts in Renegade Ops. :)
There are certainly far worse ways to spend 1200pts; but there are also some that might be better too. If only they had priced it at 800, then it would be a definite sell for me. For now, I must mull it over.
