|Cheat CC: Some video game genres evolve as they age (platformers), others stagnate (FPSes), and still others disappear completely (space-combat simulators). Arcade shooters, however, have simply kept on going. New games like Geometry Wars aren’t much different than the classics, but they’re no less fun, either. It seems that mowing down countless enemies while carefully avoiding the ravages of bullet hell is a timeless concept. Read Full Review||80/100|
|Ironhammers: As one would expect from a game of this genre there is little to no narrative. Long (or perhaps already short) story short, the Empire is bad and you have to stop them from crushing your people into the ground by fighting back in your curiously AT-ST-like mech. The story is presented only through some hilariously bad dialogue and a few still frames between chapters. Gatling Gears’ campaign provides a decent play time of roughly five to six hours. The story divides itself into 6 chapters, each one containing five levels and containing several action packed encounters with infantry, tanks, and aircraft of all sorts. Read Full Review||60/100|
