A beautiful love letter to a classic game that exists in an untouched genre until now. It's an absolute blast toGiving Retrovirus an 8.
A beautiful love letter to a classic game that exists in an untouched genre until now. It's an absolute blast to play, and lasts surprisingly longer than I had expected it to, honestly. First play through took about 10 hours. The final bossfight bugs out if you quicksave during it, and load that quicksave. It involves the boss's health bar. It saves how much damage you had done to it in the health bar, but the boss itself gets full health back. This may have been patched between now and then.
The only other minor complaint i can think of is that the pathfinding of the 'click this button to draw path to the next objective' sometimes has no idea what it's doing and will go through a wall. Still, this didn't happen to me very often at all, and was a simple mistake i can overlook.
For what you pay, and what you get, I must say that Retrovirus exceeded my expectations of 'a descent clone' and gave me something that i love. I hope the game sells well enough to warrant a sequel of some kind, and have recommended it to all of my friends.
Definitely give it a shot. If the thought of flying around and shooting stuff seems appealing, then you won't be disappointed.… Expand
