“There aren’t enough shooters” Said no one ever.
Of all the gaming genres we have to choose from these days, few are as overflowing with titles as the ever-popular shooter catergory. Zombie Studios, the folks behind the free to play Blacklight: Retribution, have once again charged into the brimming market, this time with Special Forces: Team X for Steam and XBLA. Focusing solely on multiplayer action, this cell-shaded shooter puts a promising new spin on map-selection and throws killer dobermans around like it’s nobody’s business; yet even with all its attempts at variety, can it really differentiate itself as something special or is it just another cover-based gun game trying to find space behind an already-crowded concrete barrier? 5.5/10
