Vanguard Games is off to an impressive start. Their debut title is a blast to play, shows a keen attention to detail lacking in many downloadable games, and takes place in a fascinating world. I'm not exactly sure where Vanguard is taking us with its Mistbound universe, but if Gatling Gears is any indication, I'm looking forward to the journey.
Wow! 4 hours into the game and I THEN get to a screen which says chapter 1! This game screams to pass your time away, it's one of the first twin stick games I really enjoy! There seems to be something new at every turn. I haven't finished chapter 1 yet and already 7 hours have passed by. I had to tear myself away from the game. It has a very addictive game play that really encapsulates you and puts you into a hypnotic zone. I like this game. Well worth the $10 I payed on demand for it. And it's less than a couple of gigs of space.
Gatling Gears is all about shooting. It's very simple, but really straightforward. Gatling Gears is a fast action game and has good looks, however, it's disappointing to see that it doesn't add a single thing to the genre.
This game took me back to ye olde days of arcade gaming :-), but with the excellent visuals of a modern game. Every explosion feels like a little reward. There is a metric ton of content and it can get refreshingly challenging now and then,..specially on hard. The production value of this game really makes it stand out from the crowd. More of this please xbla!
I completed the campaign on medium in around 5 hours, and i am very eager to play it again on hard. The survival mode so far has been extremely challenging for me, almost a bit too much. The graphics in this game are amazing, there is always something happening on the screen. Boss fight were amazing too.. even though the second one was a bit of a pushover. Love this game, sad i don't have a gold account to play it with friends.
If you love twin stick shooters then you can't go wrong with this one. But for casual fans of the genre it just isn't worth 15 bucks. The gameplay is solid but there are so many comparable games one could get for a fraction of the price. Not a bad game by any means it just doesn't do enough to seperate itself from the pack. While it is a more in depth game than most other twin sticks out there, the action isn't any better than similar titles.
SummaryFrom the team that created the award-winning Greed Corp, comes Gatling Gears. Set within the same Mistbound universe featuring signature elements like collapsing land, walker units and warring factions, but now with twin-stick shooter controls and a new hero, Max Brawley. In this eclectic steampunk setting, players fill the air with lead...
