    High scores and combos are fun, but when the game is based entirely on getting these as high as possible, the gameplay should be solid, simple, and entertaining. This game falls short in all three areas. The gameplay is floaty and loose, with very little visibility due to the game's art style. The levels are broken up into goals which basically amount to "collect or shoot all glowingHigh scores and combos are fun, but when the game is based entirely on getting these as high as possible, the gameplay should be solid, simple, and entertaining. This game falls short in all three areas. The gameplay is floaty and loose, with very little visibility due to the game's art style. The levels are broken up into goals which basically amount to "collect or shoot all glowing things", which is simple, but when coupled with the cheap "die and you have to restart" mechanic, it quickly becomes tedious and irritating. Finally, this game fails to satisfy in the action department, being riddled with slow, boring missions involving finding the last target among the many indistinguishable nooks and crannies in each map. Ultimately, this game is only for you if you like pretty lights, and if that's the case, there are cheaper ways to entertain yourself, like sitting in a four-way intersection . Expand

    a decent casual game with nice gfx BUT a seriously disappointing lack of content.
    there's like 20 - 25 maps here total and all but the last couple are like beginner maps.
    it's really ridiculous how little the give you to start with here but anyone can plainly see they left plenty of room for additional DLC, which presumably they will charge for in the future. so if you spend the 10

    it's really ridiculous how little the give you to start with here but anyone can plainly see they left plenty of room for additional DLC, which presumably they will charge for in the future. so if you spend the 10 bucks on this, don't plan on stopping there, you can count on spending more later because basically what they give you here is half a game.

    DO NOT PAY MORE THAN FIVE DOLLARS FOR THIS GAME. BETTER STILL, WAIT AND BUY IT WHEN IT'S 75% OFF (AND WHEN IT INCLUDES THE INEVITABLE, OBLIGATORY DLC). OTHERWISE THIS IS NOT A WORTHWHILE PURCHASE, THIS IS ONLY HALF A GAME, ONLY HALF A GAME...

    Xotic offers up fresh and original FPS experience that is well worth the $10 asking price.

    First-person shooter Xotic sure lives up to its name with surreal, fast-flowing gameplay.

    If you are looking for a game to play in your spare time, be it for 20 minutes or a couple of hours, and are fan of twitch-style first person shooters that require you to react fast (think Quake III or Unreal Tournament) mixed with a arcade, almost puzzle-like scoring system, then Xotic might just be up your alley.
