  1. Despite its faults, it is definitely worth gathering some friends to play it with at least once, and you can figure out how you feel about it from there.

    What I found was a good idea hampered by bland visuals and difficulty that never felt fair.
  3. Repetitive gameplay and an inability to communicate with your co-op teammates will keep Guns of Icarus grounded. [Sept 2010, p.82]
  4. This overly simple shooting gallery is a rip-off.

    Very good game, underrated. Great coop play, if you like that kind of thing. The review scores have only reviewed the beta version, which is shocking. Their scores should not be on metacritic. Expand

    I created an account just to make a review for this game. This game is EXTREMELY underrated. The writing for the story is fantastic. Goose bumps were had on many occasions. The combat is intense and tons of fun. I sadly can't review the multi-player mode for this game, as no one seems to play it now that the new "Online" version of this game came out. One of my only complaints is that the campaign is just plain too short. There's about an hour or two of single-player content to experience, although you can replay any level. The game also becomes pretty impossibly difficult in survival mode, but I suppose it should be. In short, it's not a perfect game, but it's still pretty damn great. Expand

    I bought this game when it was first released in 2012 Oct and after I played some few rounds I have not played this game since. The biggest reason why I did not played this game after is because it requires some serious team communication to even destroy a single ship. Back than I did not have any friends who played this game so maintaining a ship and trying to fight was not so smooth. However recently this game went on sale for $7.50 for 4 copies of the game so i bought two 4 pack bundle and played with 7 of my other friends controlling the 2 ship. I got to say when you have a team communication with your crews and captain of other ship in your team you can have some major fun in this game. It is worth the money you paid for. When you are in the middle of battle screaming for orders from captain and all the explosions happening around you, you will be seriously immersed in this game. Now if you will be playing this game with your friends it is no doubt 9 or even 10/10 but I have got to say it can get frustration and even seem very unfair and brutal if you play by yourself with uncoordinated team. So my final verdict is 7.5 out 10 Expand

    This is an overly simplistic shooting game. In co-op, you and up to three team mates fend off waves of attacking aircraft. Since there is no communication options between online players, you will need to watch your gauges carefully to repair your ship, which will likely result in duplication of effort. In a sense, this is a little like Beach Front, with no urgency, as you can always repair your ship. Expand

    Bad graphics, boring gameplay, cheap and monotonous music, cheap sound and graphic effects and boring campaign. I dont recommend to buy this game. I buy this game at big sale in Steam and after this i was playing in this game 10 minutes and delete this. And i never play in this game again. Expand
