  1. A fun -- if short -- little indie with some interesting ideas behind it falls flat on its face on technical execution and pricing issues.

    Imagine, if you will, a weapon that not only blows a guy to smithereens and covers the screen with more blood than a MASH unit, but also causes him to burst into flames and even projectile vomit all over himself for several painful seconds before he blows up. And if that isn't disgusting enough for you, imagine grabbing one of his severed legs and whacking another dude over the head with it until he, in turn, spews even more blood and vomit and flames. Ew.

    Great Idea, Bad Mechanics. Paid $15 for it on steam.. Eh, wasn't all that bummed in the game. Its fun, Im sure the multiplayer would be Great Idea, Bad Mechanics. Paid $15 for it on steam.. Eh, wasn't all that bummed in the game. Its fun, Im sure the multiplayer would be great if it had a community. Great concept for a game, nice work with the crytek 2 engine. Gibs are always fun if your into arena FPSs and turning body parts into bombs is fun.Bugs galore, bad mapping, world leaks in several maps. 6 for the shear brutality of the game. Full Review »

    Decent story idea, bad execution. Game ran choppy on systems that run Crysis ok. The voice overs were over the top, but not in a good way. It Decent story idea, bad execution. Game ran choppy on systems that run Crysis ok. The voice overs were over the top, but not in a good way. It made me want to turn my audio off. The art style that they chose doesn't work for most games, so they should have gone a different direction with it. I just feel sorry for the game more than anything. Full Review »
