a lot of effort went into this and my review is nothing new here.
1: the story is terrible. the enemies are "critters"? really? not the most threatening name and not one i can see the cities under seige by them using. "oh holy shit run for your lives! hide the women and children! make your peace with god! the .....critters....are here...." but that said its a fun world populated with two dimensional and cliche characters that waffle on and on but what little dialog is actually spoken is not badly voice acted. just wish there was more.
2:upgrading weapons. there really is just no point at all. crystals are relitively hard to come by making the upgrades really expensive and for what TINY effect they have on stat boosts are not worth it at all. now take in to account that this weapon will be made completely obsolete by the next one that comes along and sold off.....why would i bother upgrading them even if it wasnt incredibly hard to do so in the first place? i wouldnt even waste gold on them.
3: what were you thinking with the purple dragon boss?! it has a RIDICULOUS ammount of health and is an utter asshole to boot. i tried a few times to beat him without success then went away to grind for a bit and when i came back to try again? NOPE. was the response. i very nearly ragequit there and then. luckily however i read the comments and found that i could hide in the bottom right corner and not get hit. so i did, and let the ship autocannons deal with it while i watched youtube videos.... for over ten minutes......
4: i found this in a couple places, from start till ragequit, there are FUCKING SHARP difficulty increases! as in "congratulations you just hit a brick wall and will go no further unless you grind for ages and/or get lootlucky" while i persevered through the first couple the one after i had endured the fiasco of the purple dragon was just too much and i gave up completely.
shame as i liked this game, the weapons while limited in selection were satisfying to collect and felt about right in their styles. the upgrade tree and loot systems were well designed. just wished their respective trees were bigger. Now im obviously critisisng a lot here but i dont mean to so ill end on an up note, like i said its obvious a LOT of blood sweat and tears went into this and the final product is fantastic. overall i really liked the whole experience. from "POW" to "diediedie" to "well aint that pretty".
but sadly there are flaws in this game and they are large ones. really big.
"fuck it nope nuh-uh niet nah chump that" big.
