I have to agree with some of the negative reviews here. Firstly, the graphics, the animations and the characters' motion resemble the games quality of 10 years ago. The iPad, iPod etc. have so much more processing power that is not even tapped into in this game. Secondly the controls are quite awkward although not completely unworkable. The problem is that the interface simulates a joystick with direction controls on the left and shooting and weaponry buttons on the right. iOS lends itself to be a touch screen interface and so the classic controls never fare well here. Lastly the selection of weapons you get at the beginning is fair, but the experience of shooting anything is tantamount to a kid holding one of those water guns. This game is not worth downloading.
Great I don't know what the dissapointment is about
I think it's really good, as long as you set it to easy. Controls are not too bad at all. Just take a little getting used to. You control all movement with the left stick. And for a free version, why not. I'm starting to think about buying one because I actually enjoy it as much as nova. Little tweaking update and would be great. Try it!
Control is Important
Another good looking game from Arkham Development but, again, it lacks in the control department.
Movement is ok but the other buttons, change weapon, look up, look down and settings are far too close together to be properly useful in a scrap.
For free it's worth a download to check it out because it might be for you.
Another Arkham game I'll keep an eye on.
