Variety may be the spice of life, but no one likes turds in their Whitman’s Sampler.
ExZeus never made much of a splash when it was released in arcades in 2003. On the PS2 and Wii, it wasn’t even a blip on the radar. Even on the iPhone, it was one of many solid 3D action games. But when it finally landed on Android, seven years after its initial release, it was something special; one of the first games that showed our beloved OS, still in its infancy, could handle fast-paced 3D action. For many early adopters, it still holds a special place. It’s no surprise, then, that its developers have made Android the lead and (so far) exclusive platform for its sequel, and it will instantly bring back fuzzy memories for the platform’s early adopters – at least for a moment. 1.5/5
