Great shooter but lacks in climaxes

Posted on 2013-08-20 07:32:19 bySelderij's avatarSelderij:

Survivor is gameplay-wise almost the same game as the first Shadowgrounds, except it seems to have more narrow, linear levels and a greater focus on straight action. As such, it does the action part really well and it conveys the feeling of killing your way through hordes of aliens in a great way. The changing main characters with their own weapons and upgrades keep things freshread more surprisingly long.
The one department where the game sadly lacks is the highs and lows of drama and challenge. There aren't any real boss fights, rather you just fight the same basic enemies in different numbers and compositions, which makes battles evidently meant to be climactic quite underwhelming in all honesty. The concept of upgrading your weapons throughout the game doesn't pay off in a nice fashion because of the lack of any real climax.
Still, definitely a game to get by virtue of its awesome action and gameplay.

Surprisingly fun

I picked this up in a Humble Bundle and didn't think it looked like much. On a whim I tried the original Shadowgrounds out and loved it, and I have to say that this is even better.
There are 3 separate characters you play as, each with a unique playstyle. You can't turn the sniper into a brawler, and the flamethrowing fella will have to get nice and close to the baddies, but thisread more keeps the gameplay pretty fresh.
The graphics are very nice, the controls are fine and the gameplay has more tension than some AAA games I've bought. This is definitely worth a shot.

Coop heaven!

This game is fun, well made and looks good by any standards, BUT it is really priceless for the fun you can have playing it in coop on the same computer!
This is one of the few games in existence which works with 2 mice and 2 keyboards on a single computer (same as Trine 1 & 2). It means that you can have the most intense and personal Coop experience where both players getread more equally good controls for maximum fun.
The only downside is that using dual keyboard/mouse setup it can be tricky to set up controls but nothing that would stop an experienced PC gamer from having this much fun. I am so sorry for the Shadowgrounds series that it failed in sales and community support and got replaced by a fantasy Trine series... Oh well, we can still play the Survivor as it is.
