  1. It's a throwback to days gone by and is successful in what it sets out to do. It's a fun game overall, where thinking comes second and blowing the aliens away is the primary goal.
  2. The button assignments are nonintuitive, making for hand-twisting play control, and there is little variety in the 10 large environments, but pure action fans will enjoy the game's quick pace. [Mar 2004, p.118]

    Since the game mechanic is so straightforward, BlowOut is a very good game to pick up and play for short periods of time without losing ground. Aside from occasional frustrations, it's cheap, mindless shooting fun.
  4. 65
    While this game isn't quite as fun as, say, "Contra," it is a worthwhile experience, especially at the budget price point. If you're a fan of this kind of shooter, you owe yourself at least a rental.
  5. I don't want to sound too cheap, but considering you can complete this game in a day there's no reason to purchase it. There's precious little here for replay value.

    This game isn't that bad. Its a side scrolling shooter where you do objectives in a area. The enemies you fight are aliens and there is a good amount of weapons that you get. Overall it's a good game that is pretty cheap, and will keep you entertained for a while. Expand
