  1. Despite its faults, it is definitely worth gathering some friends to play it with at least once, and you can figure out how you feel about it from there.

    What I found was a good idea hampered by bland visuals and difficulty that never felt fair.

    Repetitive gameplay and an inability to communicate with your co-op teammates will keep Guns of Icarus grounded. [Sept 2010, p.82]
  4. This overly simple shooting gallery is a rip-off.

    Having logged over 100 hours in game i can tell you this is a hidden indie developer gem. I bought it on a whim for 5 dollars on a steam saleHaving logged over 100 hours in game i can tell you this is a hidden indie developer gem. I bought it on a whim for 5 dollars on a steam sale a year ago and it has been a regular in my rotation. THE BIG problem here on metacritic is this game is being mixed up with the original single player game (Gun of Icarus NOW known as Flight Of The Icarus), which was a poor broken game. a FEW THING TO NOTE here.

    1. The game is constantly having new content added, maps, ships, guns, character class abilities etc.
    2. PC Gamer as great of a publication that it is played this game in a very early form or Flight of the Icarus, the game has for well over 2 years supported in game voice chat, and it shows, VERY few games will show off such team play as this one does. This problem with its review scores is happening a lot, the beta version and original Flight game are ruining the reputation of this stellar indie development.

    So try this game. YOU will not regret it !

    Very good game, underrated. Great coop play, if you like that kind of thing. The review scores have only reviewed the beta version, which isVery good game, underrated. Great coop play, if you like that kind of thing. The review scores have only reviewed the beta version, which is shocking. Their scores should not be on metacritic. Expand

    Shooting game for kids. Super stupid simple. The game play makes you do the same thing over and over again. So boring. Then it has been agesShooting game for kids. Super stupid simple. The game play makes you do the same thing over and over again. So boring. Then it has been ages since they released an update for this game. I guess Muse games will stop at nothing to make quick cash. Please don't waste your money on a low level product like this when their are so many other better options on the market. Expand
