Retrovirus review | Thunderbolt

Shane Ryan, Thunderbolt writes:

Hovering in an innermost chamber, Oracle speaks to you in a calm, feminine voice. In front of you is a window to a desktop, standard installation shortcuts set atop countryside wallpaper. It’s a neat touch that has you looking out onto what you’re effectively looking into. Then in the distance of the wallpaper hills something moves. Oracle has identified a virus in the system. A giant purple worm dances and swims through the air. Abruptly it surges forward, engorging immensely in size. It breaks through the desktop screen and enters the inside of the machine, burrowing through the floor, leaving wormholes in the infrastructure. The opening ambience had me intrigued; however, it eventually clashed with a predominantly combat based story. (PC, Retrovirus) 6/10
