||Oh 1988, where have you been and why did it take so long for someone to make a game that perfectly shows the macho ridiculousness that was so in your face in arcade games and movies back then? Let me start by saying I LOVE this game, it's campy, vulgar, and hilarious. Think of it like this: Tron + The Terminator + Running Man + Far Cry 3 = Blood Dragon.
Game-play: The game mechanics are pretty straight-forward, if you've played a modern FPS then you should have no problem jumping in and playing. The tutorial is the funniest one I've ever seen in a game.
Graphics: The graphics are great, not just because of the things that look amazing, but also because of the things that they made look older. The cut scenes look like they are straight out of the SNES/Genesis days.
Controls: The controls are pretty easy to learn. Keyboard moves, mouse looks and shoots.
Overall, this is a great game. It doesn't take its self too seriously. If you've watched a lot of 80's - 90's action movies this game is great, watch for the small ways it pays homage to its roots.
