  • Summary: Playable alone and in cooperative mode (local & online), Obscure lets you play as one of four unlikely heroes; students, each with unique skills and abilities that develop throughout the adventure. Geared toward action and all-out brawling, Obscure's combat emphasizes combos, follow-up attacks, and score-multipliers! Survive against packs of monsters trying to skin you alive, discover new weapons, and complete objectives throughout a variety of huge, non-linear levels. Overshooting the scores will earn you experience points to level your character up, unlocking new weapons, skills, and other devastating abilities! At any time, you can even get back to some of earlier levels to try your new toys and beat your scores! Expand

    Disappointingly, the experience becomes a painful chore if you play solo. [Jan 2014, p.69]

    While it’s not a title that will redefine the genre of beat-em-ups, it can be a relatively good time given you can grab some friends to play with.

    Final Exam is undoubtedly an attractive game with a lot of fun in store, particularly with a friend, but the chaotic brawling is unfortunately countered by frustrating drawbacks in many areas.

    The concept works pretty well, but the level design becomes tedious and boring, with some really slow sequences. If you think you can forgive this, then it deserves a try.

    Classic button masher, with not much to offer.

    To put it simply: Final Exam is forgettable.

    Final Exam has a unique set of ideas for a story, the graphics are...colorful and the player can choose between four characters who each have their own weapon variety, leveling up system and the game is diverse. HOWEVER, everything else falls flat from it's repetitive gameplay, average looking backgrounds, still images tell the story, generic enemies/bosses and the music is ok. Nothing much to say, It's fun with a friend BUT not by yourself. Soooooooooooooo I am going to play something else. It's a slightly above average game but, there are better beat em ups. The choice is yours! Expand
