:mediadavid: Posted February 4, 2004 Share Posted February 4, 2004 Or maybe that should be - can anyone play this? I don't have the edge at hand, but I seem to rememeber it getting at least a respectable score. A fun if brainless shooter with some fancy moves was what I understood this game was. Well, I saw it cheap preowned, and bought it expecting some quick trigger finger fun. Well, having played through the first level, I am very dissapointed. Not because it's limited, i expected that - though the clear the room gameplay would probably get tired pretty quickly. No, Its because its completely and utterly unplayable. The Control is terrible. Once you've pressed a button to do one of your fancy moves, you can't do anything until the move has finished, If you get what I mean. Trying to work the combos mean taking your thumb off the control stick, and their is no fluidity there whatsoever. Trying to, for example, Jink right then jump is just painful. But worse than any of these, there is a flaw that destroys any potential enjoyment. You can't shoot while moving. Yes, every time you press the fire button, you are immediately rooted to the spot. Since the gameplay (In theory, at least) consists of you using your skills to dodge the enemy fire in slim corridors, being stuck in the same point for ages while you blast an enemy means quick death and frustration. I thought maybe I wasn't doing it right, but no. the controls really are that bad. Oh Capcom, how did it go so wrong? You should be brilliant at this sort of twitch gameplay! Or am I not 'getting' it? Out of interest, what score did Edge give it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
