Excerpt: Online shooters have evolved a lot over the last several years. From different classes to unlock-able perks and weapons, they have grown to a point where being competitive means spending a decent amount of time learning the classes and unlocking the extras. The problem with this evolution is sometimes you just want to jump into a game and shoot people without having to worry about other people having an advantage because they have been playing it for a while.
Pros: Fun shooter, even if you are not good at shooters, Simple controls make it easy to learn, Unique modes, maps and environmental hazards/helps, Robust map and mode editor allowing for user created content, $19.99 price point is ridiculously cheap for all this game contains
Conclusion: There are currently three modes on offer: Joust, Arena and Elite. Joust is an interesting hands-on/hands-off mix which works well for training, as you’ll spend more time spectating as two players duke it out; it’s a pity there aren’t more spectating options apart from fixed bird’s-eye tracking and first-person player perspective.
