Summary:

Finally we get the weapons that we have all been craving! It works surprisingly well and really fits into the game. The new modes are a lot of fun and bring a fresh challenge to the game. I did find that some of the old maps struggled to accommodate the weapons with narrow tracks and mines been a horrible tactic. Aside from that its a neat little package and for how cheap it is you would be crazy not to jump in. I really enjoyed it and didn’t think the game could get any better but here we are!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
