When Firepower Isn’t Enough
HIGH Finally killing that super-worm.
LOW The Blob that convinced me to quit the game.
WTF Why do the bloodstains disappear? I want to see the whole screen covered in alien guts!
HIGH The art style is beautifully distinct.
LOW An emotion-free popup box telling me that someone died.
WTF Who are you, again? Wait, who am I?
HIGH: Beautiful claymation.
LOW: Hearing annoying cries as I do that one damned puzzle yet again.
WTF: Mike Nelson and Rob Paulsen were hired to voice the characters—and they aren't given anything funny to say.
HIGH The hip hop/feudal Japan vibe
LOW Everything else
WTF Why was this even made?
HIGH Answering the knocking on the well lid.
LOW The "Beauty" dream, which was pointlessly frustrating thanks to bad platforming and inane enemies.
WTF Why put "interact" and "attack" on the same button when the final battle requires correct distinction between these actions and ten controller inputs are free?
HIGH The color palette is nice.
LOW Getting stuck in a glitched-out respawn area.
WTF How was this deemed ‘ready to publish'?
