  • Summary: Presenting I.R.I.S. 2-time Valedictorian of the illustrious Big Arms Academy's School of Assassination. Proficient in over forty forms of unarmed combat, earning Sensei status in Jiu-jitsu, Akido, Krav Maga, and Jeet June Do. Equally deadly with blades, handguns, and the latest nuclear technology.

    While LocoCycle doesn’t scream next-gen visually, it is a lot of fun to play.

    Lococycle is as hard to put down as it is hard to love. Even if the comedy scratches your itch, there will be times when the shortage of depth and aversion to polish become impossible to forgive.

    Lococycle is full of Twisted Pixel’s wacky brand of humour and is animated excellently, but the limited gameplay just holds it back from being a must-have.

    If you're looking for a weird update to the likes of Road Rash or Carmageddon then LocoCycle is certainly of that mould. Just don't expect the sheen or polish of the developer's older titles.

    If you’re looking for another game to squeeze your brand new Xbox One this is not your lucky day. You better search somewhere else.

    The implementation is rushed and slipshod, however, ignoring fundamental problems and expending limited energy on the wrong things. What you're getting for your money feels a little like somebody else's office in-joke: you can sense the well-intentioned laughter, but you can't really join in.

    LocoCycle is a true turd, one of those games that shouldn't even exists and meanwhile makes the achievement of ripping gamers of 20 euros. Closer to a PS2 game in its graphics, the game is boring, scripted to the max, very short, repetitive and with gameplay that limits itself to spamming three buttons and doing a few QTE when asked. Only a few jokes will make the gamers abused by the ads smile, but the smile will quickly fade away as the scenario unfolds. A new milestone in the hall of shame of videogames has been set on the back of an Xbox One that really did not need that for its launch period.

    Fun, quirky racing game with lots of action combat. If you want to laugh and have a good time, Lococycle is sure to please. Twisted Pixel games has done it yet again! Expand

    Sheer old school gaming bliss!!! This game is fast and fun...the side chatter between Iris & Pablo is hilarious. Loco plays like the games from the 32 bit era...big boss fights, hordes of enemies attacking at once and finding patterns to exploit enemy weaknesses. It's a shame so many people don't appreciate this game for what it is simple straightforward fun!! One of my favorite titles of all time. Expand

    Just finished playing LocoCycle as of recently and I'm pretty high on it. In a nutshell, it was just a good time. I really wanted to play this game from beginning to end and I did just that. It really hooked me in.

    + Gameplay is very good. I love the way Iris handles, the spy hunter-esque car combat, the crazy hand to tire combat, the way Pablo is used through out the game, the on-rails shooting moments, and the QTEs being used at appropriate times and not being hard to see or anything like that.

    + Game offers tons of variety. The basic part of it is driving down highways to your guns, speed booster, and melee combat to fight enemies and complete special challenges. It gets mixed up with special counters, moments where Pablo has to fix Iris, or a QTE scenario that never feels out of place. They also offer up platformer-esque situations where you have to dodge certain enemies/projectiles which really add a bit of depth to the game. Boss fights are fun, original, memorable, and challenging enough for me to want to do multiple play-throughs.

    + Storyline is fun as a comedy adventure game. Not perfect mind you, but it's a delight to see the FMV scenes and the fantastically animated vehicles in this game. I had my share of laughs and got hooked into Iris' beautiful personality and dialogue. She's just a funny little motorcycle and I just wished I could watch Weekend at Bernie's 2 with her. Plus, the game gets extra points for the epic grilled cheese sandwiches seen at the end. I need to find some huge bread.

    + Visually, it's not the most appealing game, but in motion, it looks fine in my opinion. The art direction is cool and everything just feels smooth.

    - You just wish there was more original gameplay beyond the campaign. A separate mode that was just plain gameplay would've been great in my opinion. More dodging of the scientists in electric hamster balls, more blowing up of secrent agent dudes, and a boss rush mode is always appreciated now that I think of it.

    Overall, I can't recommend the journey enough. That's what it is. A cool journey. It's cheap, fun, and worth the ride.

    While its clear Twisted Pixel have an adept ability to come up with fun quirky ideas translating them into games isn't being done well. LocoCycle is one such fun idea on paper that just fails in being actually fun to play. Though its redeeming feature is the cheese of the live action elements that are purposely bad and fun because of it yet the in game comedy is hit and miss. Expand

    This game should be banned it's so annoying
    game maker should not make games more
    game maker has few punches on his eye needed

    I laughed when I was playing this game, not because it's fun- its stupid. Graphics are worse than on mobile phones, gameplay sucks. Worst launch game ever. Collapse

    Abysmal, who are earth could think that making this game and putting it into production could be a good idea.

    Fitting that it'd be an Xbone
    launch title. Expand
