    So here it is. The first actual user review for 2009's seminal much touted "Space Giraffe" and I hate to break it to you, outside of Tempest 2000 fans, it has been very hard to enjoy this game. I was surprised at how their were generally so many inclusions of this game in "best games list's" all over the internet and yet the only actual reviews for it seem to only be on the steam userSo here it is. The first actual user review for 2009's seminal much touted "Space Giraffe" and I hate to break it to you, outside of Tempest 2000 fans, it has been very hard to enjoy this game. I was surprised at how their were generally so many inclusions of this game in "best games list's" all over the internet and yet the only actual reviews for it seem to only be on the steam user review page. Initially, the controls make no sense, I get that you have a screen clearing "bomb" and then something called a "hoof shot," but these don't seem to be visually apparent upon pressing of any of the supposed buttons. Honestly, from the very first minutes of gameplay you could be forgiven for believing that you're playing some sort of demo. Their is so very much going on that barely makes any sort of semblance of "sense" that it collides massively with what is supposed to be fairly complex inner-workings and mechanics. To be blunt- its not fun. Its also highly unrewarding to be playing a game and have no real concept of "am I doing well, or am I doing poorly?" Surely the one thing that is quite apparent is that when you have been hit by an enemy projectile you have died and of course when you have hit an enemy with your projectiles, they have been killed, but aside from these pretty apparent things the game doesn't seem to have a solid presentation whatsoever. This is still 9.99 USD on steam and although its been highly recommended from dark parts of the internet or mentioned briefly in "top" PC game lists, I would advise you save your money. Sometimes their is a good reason why games are not heard about, talked about and merely "mentioned" in passing. However, I do hear that a strictly Playstation VITA release was made by the same developer and received very solid reviews. Of course these our SONY fans we're talking about. As long as its on their system to begin with- they'll give anything higher reviews. Expand
