Excerpt: See, I have this crazy thing I do where I hope for the best. Yeah, yeah. I know. I think it's just a phase I'm working through. I'll be working through it quite a bit faster if more things like the development of Fuse happen. Insomniac Games, you know those guys right? They made Spyro before he sucked and Ratchet & Clank in both pre-and-post suckage phases. Back in 2011 they revealed that they had a new game in the works called Overstrike .
Conclusion: Fuse is two games. As a four-player co-op shooter with friends, it's light, frothy fun that ticks along at remarkable pace with inventive weaponry. On your own, the AI of your team-mates drags the entire experience down and kills the fun factor co-op has.
Ultimately, Another 3rd Person Shooter | FUSE Review
28 May 2013
Conclusion: All in all, FUSE is a mixed bag. You have a game that is built on a solid engine that provides a smooth gaming experience. This would have been a major plus assuming that all else was equal. Unfortunately, the story is almost an afterthought, seeing as how predictable and dull it ended up being. Also, the lack of character or weapon customization weighed heavily on the game, especially in the second half of the campaign.
Summary: Design-by-committee appears to have robbed Fuse of not only its former name and aesthetic, but also of any gameplay depth. It's a multiplatform misstep for Insomniac that will have Xbox owners wondering why that studio is so beloved in the first place.
Pros: All four Fuse weapons are interesting in their own right. The co-op is sound.
Cons: Combat gets repetitive, fast. One dimensional characters populate a lifeless story. The friendly AI isn't great.
Excerpt: Insomniac Games har været på en noget knudret dannelsesrejse, når det omhandler deres bevægelse ind i shootergenren. Selskabet, der først og fremmest grundfældede deres popularitet med Ratchet & Clank, hoppede på action-vognen med Resistance serien, som nu i tre kapitler ikke fuldstændigt har formået at overbevise om sine egenskaber. Nu er turen så kommet til at et gruppebaseret kampspil, set fra et tredje persons perspektiv.
Pros: Gode våben, Fin styring, Tempofyldt
Cons: Middelmådigt teknisk, Ikke så sjovt alene, Løfter sig ikke i forhold til konkurrenterne
