    While the problematic menus and glaring lack of single-player content invariably creeps in, tarnishing what is otherwise an essential title, Orbital Gear remains a refreshing and deftly executed take on multiplayer gaming that more developers should consider.

    There’s a solid foundation to Orbital Gear. The momentum-based aerial acrobatics are fluid, and mastering them is rewarding. The weapons are varied, and it’s interesting how they interact with the game world. It’s disappointing then, as the delay they have in firing is at odds with the one-to-one ease of movement the game is built around.

    Orbital Gear can be a frantic shooter that pulls you in with its gravitational gimmickry, but lacks the forward momentum to keep me playing for long.

    A strange bi-dimensional shooter that plays with gravity and testes player's reflexes. There aren't enough maps and modes to properly support the main idea, though.

    I know games like this take a lot of work from creators with a very small budget, but sometimes, an idea just isn’t that great.

    Side-scrolling combat games aren't new, and plenty of them are heftier, more substantial and cheaper than this one. Steam users can do better.

    Fun, especially with friends. There are single player time trials now. The movement is rewarding but can be strange sometimes. Low player baseFun, especially with friends.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A fun, fast game that can get intense really quickly with 24 people with boosters everywhere. Most of the guns are overpoweredly balanced. The not so op generally require a lot of skill, but if u know how to use it u can devastate people. It's a good time-killer or if your just looking for a fun game with friends with 90% off on steam now. It may take awhile to get used to their idea of multi-gravitational planets as well as how to dictate the direction of movement. However, it's a game that you can just pick up and start having fun immediately Expand

    Single player is abysmal while online is empty. It can be good in split screen mode with friends at least.
