    Juggling different weapons and dodging enemy fire makes the gameplay feel frantic and exciting, but too little enemy and level design variation hold this competent shooter back from greatness. [Apr 2011, p.96]

    What kicks this game into the frustration bucket more than anything else is that control system.

    Fun game but no Panzer Dragoon Orta. I am glad to see on-rail shooters make a comeback though, and it's been a long time since I actuallyFun game but no Panzer Dragoon Orta. I am glad to see on-rail shooters make a comeback though, and it's been a long time since I actually played one personally, so it was nice to have this style of game make a return. Hopefully with they can add some Kinect support down the line as this would be a lovely game to use your hands with. Overall, I say buy if you're looking to get back into on-rail shooters and want a new game in the genre. Full Review »

Being a console port, Yars Revenge only supports 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios, has a menu system not designed for a point and click interface making it awkward to navigate and has no way to reconfigure keys. The biggest problem however is the horrendous, poorly-responsive in game mouse control with always on aim assist, making it impossible to play with any skill or accuracy. I would not recommend this to anyone. Full Review »
