"5th Cell is fairly well known as the company that brought us Drawn to Life and Scribblenauts, very innovative games that allowed players to draw most of the game art assets and write most of the game’s story themselves, respectively. This wasn’t a bad thing, the functionality of the games allowed for a decent amount of freedom and later Scribblenauts games allowing for more and more detailed objects to spawn and use. This time around 5th Cell hasn’t made Hybrid to be fun little cartoony game though, stepping into the genre of the shooter 5th Cell is hoping to bring the innovation it’s brought to its previous games to the third-person shooter and massive multiplayer online play-styles. With the gameplay split into seasons and the first season having been completed this past weekend, it’s time to look at the game as a whole."
