The Showdown Effect Preview: The Last Action Hero | EuroGamer

EuroGamer: "Arrowhead Studios' second effort is a twitch-fast deathmatch platformer inspired by the likes of Super Smash Bros. and as riddled with action clichés as it is with bullets. Furthermore, it's as off-the-wall as you'd expect from a development team whose first game featured wizards with machineguns: Magicka was both inventive and irreverent, and Arrowhead's alchemy mixed a build-your-own system of spellcasting with tongue-in-cheek humour, selling over a million copies of the base game and some four million expansions to go with it." (PC, The Showdown Effect)
