    Wasteland Angel won't blow anyone away and you'll likely just feel like you're just going through the motions on an autopilot and never really engaged in all the action and chaos that ensues. Its few flashes of fun are derived only from the frantic pace and the neat special weapons, but it's all bogged down a general lack of variety and it's over before you know it, resulting in a game that's average at best.

    Wasteland Angel brings old-school arcade action to the PC. Outfitted with a heavily armored car called Gipsy, unlimited firepower and a thirst for vengeance, the game is a nostalgic throw-back to the era of arcade shooters. The game is however way to repetitive, easy and lacks a multiplayer mode.

    Wasteland Angel should be steered clear of primarily for its lack of both value and innovative gameplay. With the game lasting at most about 3 to 4 hours depending on difficulty and endurance to achieve better scores, your money can be spent better elsewhere on titles with more content.

    I gave it a one because it didn't crash on me. This is barely on par with the quality of free 3d web games on cereal company websites. I got it at a discount on Steam, only 7.00 or so, it's not even worth 0.99¢
    seriously, there's amazing games for iOS that put this to shame at a fraction of the price!

    I must say I didn't do much research before buying it. I liked the wasteland-theme and I'm always willing to give an indy title a shot so being dissapointed was mostly my fault as I was expecting this to be Quarantine revisited with an open-world and RPG-gameplay Instead, I was given an arena fighter where you drive circles around objects while keeping the mouse button pressed most of the time. There's no exploration, no interaction and the upgrading that you will be doing happens purely by chance as you have to drive over (or near) 'power-ups' dropped by destroyed hostiles that make you shooter faster, shoot differently, repair your vehicle or give you a special weapon. Sounds aren't very exciting. There are a lot of annoying comic-like noises when you hit something and there's a constant wailing alarm whenever the enemy steals civilians from the towns that you are tasked with defending. The driving is done through the WASD controls and you'll mostly be drifting and ramming into obstacles because the car steers like a cheap RC toy car. There's no turret involved, your primary weapon is attached to the hood of your car so you'll be aiming with the keyboard. Yes, that's right, this game plays like Doom without a mouse. I found this game to be repetitive even before I finished the tutorial. Its redeeming qualities are the ease at which you can win any of the game modes (even on higher difficulties) , the cars that remind me of Micro Machines and it has a cool wasteland theme going for it with some decent comic-style sketches and voice-acting.

    control has significantly improved with the 9/9/2011 update. not nearly as much drifting as in the youtube videos from TotalBiscuit, but you are still able to pull off hairpin turns with ease. It's a decent game if you can find it cheaply, but the lack of multiplayer is the nail in the coffin for WA. I like the "ping" and "duing" messages that appear for damaging enemies. Much less irritating than other games of the genre, but controls can still see some improvement. Full Review »
