  • Conclusion: Zooming past enemies and virus strongholds all while shooting was fun. I loved flying through a few times in a single area just to eliminate all of the enemies, because they sometimes follow you to the next area.

  • Summary: “Why don’t they make games like Descent anymore” is the perpetual whinge of a small but vocal community of gamers who are immune to motion sickness. Well, those gamers are in for a treat, because Retrovirus by Cadenza Interactive is here, and it offers fully 360 degrees of control in a 3D, floating...

  • Conclusion: During my review period, if I wasn’t playing Retrovirus , I was thinking about it. I made a point to spend extra time with it, soaking in a game world that so well represented my own childhood imaginings.

  • Pros: Campaign, Graphics, Gameplay
  • Cons: Disorienting

  • Summary: In the real world, cleaning out the digital crud and viruses mucking up your ailing computer is rarely a fun ordeal, but Retrovirus' sci-fi-heavy approach to tech support is far more satisfying.
  • Pros: Unique settings juxtapose the organic and the mechanical, Fresh take improves on Descent-style exploration and combat, Tons of customization and weapon options for your drone
  • Cons: Weak plot and story presentation, Difficulty spikes wildly at times

Retrovirus review – six degrees of freedom

metro.co.uk
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: A worthy successor to the Descent legacy, but lacking the depth of gameplay that would’ve made it a classic of equal standing.
  • Pros: Great visuals and controls, with a freedom of movement not seen in other modern shooters. Excellent range of multiplayer modes, including both co-op and competitive.
  • Cons: Needlessly confusing story and overly dry dialogue. With few other distractions the combat eventually becomes repetitive. Uneven difficulty level.

  • Pros: Excellent environment design, Interesting story, Tight controls
  • Cons: Underpowered weapons, Mediocre audio, Sharp difficulty spikes
