Sep 26, 2017Ruiner is momentum. The art drives the story, the story drives the setting, the setting drives the music, and the music drives the combat. Which in and of itself, needs none of the above. There are other very cool elements to be found from the versatile progression system to the way in which the boss battles evolve and really put your skills to the sent. And there are stretches where the momentum lags and cues are repeated. But with the sound turned up, the lights drawn, and your eyes firmly watching each enemy movement and background detail come to life there’s nothing better. Ruiner gets it. And I love it.
Sep 26, 2017Ruiner’s budget presentation does little to sully what is otherwise a challenging, addictive and sublime twin-stick shooter experience. Whether you’re head-hunting a particularly nasty criminal, taking on a group of cyborgs or arduously battling against a fearsome boss, Ruiner is action-packed, stylish as hell and fucking awesome. In fact, it just might be one of the most memorable experiences I’ve played this year. Just play it on PC if you can though, yeah?
Sep 27, 2017A great action game, well balanced and with a unique personality. It's not very long, but we've enjoyed it, and we think any fan of this genre will too.
Sep 27, 2017Ruiner is a fast isometric shooter. Frenetic. With a good handful of playable possibilities that offer variety in action, although it can sometimes be repetitive. Exploring its city Rengkok and its cyberpunk history of hackers and street gangs helps to bring a little more variety to the set.
Oct 10, 2017Ruiner's cyberpunk carnage and soundtrack evoke Hotline Miami, even if the gameplay doesn't quite measure up. It's a spectacle, but it's over too soon.
Sep 26, 2017RUINER ruins its own explosive presentation and promising combat with poorly thought-out difficulty and incomplete narrative and gameplay concepts.

Great atmosphere, art, fast past and hard yet not frustrating combat. Pumping soundtrack that goes with the theme and feel perfectly. Only downside is a little short.… Expand

-Very well balanced difficulty. Playing on hard will make you die from time to time until you get the right pattern without having any "wtf this is unfair" moments that so many badly balanced games create.
-Nervous gameplay : mobility over the tank and spank of some other popular hack&slash
-Great Atmosphere and Ambiance
-Very good music
-Optimized for speedrun if that's your thing
Can't remap control, but if you are not impaired Keyboard+M works well enough
-Not super clear on what hits you, and your hitbox is large.
-If you are not going multiple playtrough, the game is rather short. I finished the game in a bit over 4 hours. Due to the game low price, this is not that much of an issue though
-Not fully voiced
-Some boss are easier than trash mobs waves. The final boss was too easy for my taste despite having an awesome artistic direction an number of things to care about on the screen.
Overall the gameplay itself is worth maybe a 6 (Cheap, Enjoyable but not memorable), but the artistic direction and soundrack are enough to earn one extra points each.… Expand

+Динамичность и зрелищность боев

+Присутствуют основные визуальные особенности стиля киберпанк: у всех персонажей различные имплантанты, всем правят беспринципные мегакорпорации, виртуальная рельность как наркотик, город-муравейник.
+ Особенностью ролевой системы является ее гибкость - в любой моменты вы можете перераспределить способности и включить те импланты, которые полезны в данный момент.
-Слабоватый сюжет (хотя что вы от аркадного слешера хотите?)
-Довольно однообразные локации

Aug 31, 2022it's indeed ruiner. it ruins your fun :DDD
you are some submissive human-machine garbage who obeys a man then some girl hacks you thereforeit's indeed ruiner. it ruins your fun :DDD
you are some submissive human-machine garbage who obeys a man then some girl hacks you therefore you have to obey her. she calls you puppy from time to time that's what happens if you wire your brain with computer **** :DDD
the game is like phone game which they decided to release for pc because why not
there are binary dialogue options but it's only "nod" or shrug" most of the time. sometimes you can either "nod" or "agree" lol
weapons damage doesn't make sense I need to hit a guy 5 times with some weapon that shoots laser but I can kill the same guy with one ordinary pipe attack. wow. I thought laser ain't powerful but bullets have no difference other than it takes like 10 shoot to kill the guy lol
I have no idea what's the point of free roam mode between missions as the city is even smaller than my house and there is basically nothing to do in the city lmao
I wish I could "shrug" the whole story instead of being puppet of random hackers in the quest to save my brother because I don't care but I have no idea why some random hacker cares about him :DDD
some locations doesn't make sense. while I was walking around the city I pressed "E" randomly and then the game displayed loading screen which indicated the map is changed. and then I was teleported to some arena that they threw bomb drones on my head and there was 2 guys waiting in a corridor which they guys cannot be killed because I attacked at them for half an hour. they didn't even have health bar. so I decided to walk further in the corridor and I found a white door which "exit" text was on it so I did exit and the next thing I saw was main menu. I have no idea WTF was that :DDD… Expand
