    Hybrid is an interesting and solid 3rd person shooter from 5th Cell, the developer of the wonderful Scribble-naughts series. After playing the game for a few hours though one can't help but feel this fun arcade game could have been so much more. The shooting is great but it's limited.

After playing the game for a few hours though one can't help but feel this fun arcade game could have been so much more. The shooting is great but it's limited. The main movement choices you have are to fly to certain barriers, vault them to the other side, and strafe around while flying to and fro. The problem is that's it. The flying is a blast too but you don't get the full control that you want. That's my main issue with the game, other than that it's a pretty basic standard shooter. I feel though the perk of this game is it's unique approach to everything and how it's limited, but you can go a few different places with it. The multiplayer set up is interesting as well, you can pick certain districts to fight in, say there's a battle for an area in America that is basically Washington, Oregon, and Idaho state combined, and 5th cell provides districts like that for every continent and it's kind of a cool perk. It's graphically adequate, the character models and some customization are good but it's nothing jaw dropping. There's a story somewhere but it doesn't really matter as this is strictly a multiplayer shooter and nothing else, but a good one. With all that said and done, I only wanted to play it in bursts and for $15, you might want to wait for a "Deal of the Week" drop like with Deadlight. There is fun to be had, but there could have been so much more. Expand

    Like tuna salad in the sun, Hybrid is decent while we write, but it's definitely a case of eat it now or eat it never. [Issue#89,p.83]

    Seasonal faction war and unlock tiers provide depth. The small maps and limited movement will not appeal to some players, though, and the inclusion of cash-for-unlocks does not belong in a full-priced arcade title. [Oct 2012, p.53]

    By spicing up the mechanic that is used so often in games with more going for them, Hybrid proves its worth as a definite gaming gem, and is well deserving to be given a shot by gamers everywhere.
