pumps a lot of attitude into its sound and strangely futuristic
metallic style music to suit the world your destroying piece
by piece. The sound is exceptionally high quality, shooting
bullets into the metal bodies of your foe sounds like you might
expect it to. Jumping up and clashing back down with you huge
metal feet and hearing the noise thunder out of your speakers
as you do so helps to convey scale and depth.
tower up into the night sky as you spot off yet another bad
guy with your combination of missile and machine gun style weaponry
that constantly gets upgraded and changed as you pickup ammo
and upgrade packs along the way. That's Slave Zero though, one
mean, tough piece of metal that just keeps on giving - not to
be confused with Santa Clause.
thoroughly enjoyed Slave Zero with its mix of swish graphics,
stomping sound and fast paced gameplay. However it can get a
little repetitive and some may find it to hard to play. Another
downside is the style of gameplay doesn't appeal to everybody
as say Half-Life might, the level of depth and scenery does
change but your always in similarly scaled locations and can't
leave the confines of your big bodied friend.
good fun game that'll last a bit, perhaps just not a great game
that'll last a lot.
