    A transcendent fusion of color, music and movement, We Are Doomed is as close as you will get to poetry in a twin-stick shooter.

    We Are Doomed is a fantastic take on the twin-stick shooter, showing that you can take the basics of a genre and still make something fresh with enough creativity and style.

    Giving players only a tiny laser to kill bad guys with puts a unique and interesting spin on the typical top-down shooter model, and beautiful visuals offer a nice retro feel.

    A good-looking, minimalist twin stick shooter that delivers intense, if somewhat repetitive action at a price that feels a little too steep.

    As a whole, We Are Doomed doesn't quite meet its asking price. While what's here can be compelling for a short while, it quickly loses appeal. However, it's certainly not doomed, as it's a solid arcade shooter with a gorgeous – if occasionally distracting – art style and fitting music.

    It is nothing you have not seen before, and when it comes down to it, it is nothing you will not see again.

    Being brash, there is really nothing in this game. There is the overly simplistic game mechanics, only one weapon, and that’s pretty much it.

It has two modes, "endless" which is an arcade mode and "waves" where you complete 30 levels with checkpoints at 10 and 20. There is a super power shot that you need collect a lot of things for that doesn't last long unless you are collecting more stuff and hardly seems worth it. Not much else is here. Lots of spawning on top of your ship with very little warning. Often hard to see what is going on because it always vomiting indie graphics all over the place. Hard to recommend when Geometry Wars 3 and Super Startdust Delta exist on PS4. Expand

Unfortunately We Are Doomed does nothing that hasn’t been seen countless times before and the graphical style often makes it very difficult to see where all the enemies are on screen leading to frustrating deaths.
