Retro gaming to the nth degree

Alexander Whiteside, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Don't let the boxart deceive you: this isn't a Devil May Cry style action-adventure. It's not Tomb Raider. It isn't even Rez. It's Space Invaders. Firing up the game, even with the most open-minded approach, is instant dissapointment. Movement is limited and seemingly clumsy, enemies are dense automatons, and the scenery is simplistic to say the least. Still, you've spent money on it, so you persist. Room after room.

Basic but fun

  • Summary: I had a lot of fun with this game and played it right through to the end. At its heart it's a pretty simple action game - no great plot or gameplay subtleties, but I see this as a good thing. And it's very cheap nowadays! The controls are different to many similar games and so it takes a bit of time to get used to them - but I definitely wouldn't say that they are poorly designed. They are perfect for this game. The key to this game is timing.

Real jolly good fun

  • Summary: At first I was thrown by the seemingly irksome controls of this game, where you have to stand still to shoot etc. But I quickly came to see that this was not a mistake at all, but very much intentional. It's part of the game mechanic and it works really well. You have to dodge and perform special attacks standing still, which is balanced by the predicability of the enemy's moves etc. It works REALLY well, although is not at all how I imagined the game to be.

Misunderstood

  • Summary: I think that Product Number 3's cold reception has much to do with a misunderstanding of what this game actually is. I can imagine how the screenshots of a lithe, athletic female character may have prompted comparisons to Tomb Raider and how in turn such expectations of a sci-fi Lara have damned PN03 as a disappointment. Well, it's not. Well at least not to those who can recognise the game for what it is - a shooter. Old school and hardcore.
