    It's a slow-paced shooter with shoddy AI, dated graphics and a frustrating design. Even though it's good for a few irreverent laughs, it's not worth paying for, even in the bargain bin.
  2. This exotic pedigree gives Torrente the game an air of intrigue that eclipses the final product, which turns out to be a typically rotten movie-licensed budget shooter.
  3. Really disappointing [gameplay], poor controls, poorly designed missions, poor execution.
  4. Torrente has a few things working against it, the least of which is the fat, balding, middle-aged, ass that is the star of the game. That fat dork is the best thing about the game. What does that tell you?
  5. Tedious and only worth trying out if you can laugh at a game with very few redeeming factors. It's too long, it's too uninspired, and it just isn't much fun.
  6. The graphics are bland, the sound is grating, and the gameplay is about as much fun as watching paint dry. There are better things you could do with twenty dollars.
  7. It’ll bore you to tears in about 20 minutes.
  8. As a low-budget title, it lacks pretty much everything including: multiplayer or online play, extendability, quality cut scenes or voice acting, and plot.
  9. 'Torrente' may just be a new Spanish word for ‘terrible’.
  10. If the gameplay was incredibly fun, or the graphics fantastic, then perhaps playing basically the same mission over and over again for ten hours could have been bearable, or even mildly entertaining. Torrente, by comparison, was more like pulling teeth.
  11. Maybe if it was in the bargain bin for 5 dollars I could see a reason to buy it. Just to see how truly bad it is.

    The controls in Torrente are hideous. Sluggish control of the character, whether that be in 1st or 3rd person mode, is constantly apparent.

    While a well voiced main character enhances a good game, it can’t pull this one out of the gutter. Do not buy this game.
