An obligatory visit to Russia with dogs in the lead role and an adrenaline arcade gameplay proves that less is sometimes more. The game concentrates a huge amount of fun on a small area. Once you grab it, you won’t be able let go. [Issue#290]
The game may seems a little hard at the beginning but after some exercise you can find it entertaining and highly playable. It is totally expected that you repeat and repeat to achieve higher scores, a process that is really enjoyable. I must admit that this game is better than what I have expected before playing it and is a step forward for its creators.
If you’ve got the funds, I’d say picking up Russian Subway Dogs is well worth your time. The game offers an arcade style experience that few games can offer well. It’s likely you’ll play it more after you’ve completed your initial session, even if you have no reason to. I’ve come back into it several times to play a single level or try my hand at the Endless mode. It’s well worth the coin you’ll spend on it.
Russian Subway Dogs is an incredibly unique arcade-style title that excels in short bursts. With a wonderfully zany presentation and great mission diversity, there is little else like this game. Its score-chasing, shawarma-munching action is diluted somewhat by its stunted game flow and superfluous unlockables, but neither flaw results in Russian Subway Dogs being anything short of good.
