CGM Reviews: The Showdown Effect

What happens when you take the best parts of 80s action movies and throw them in a blender with fast paced multiplayer and over the top violence? Chances are you would end up with something like The Showdown Effect from Arrowhead Games. The Magika makers have traded in Norse mythology for the dazzling neon of the 1980s in their new 2.5D side-scrolling shooter. Since this game is supported with microtransactions rather than DLC it leaves me to question whether this game should have been released as a free-to-play title rather than carrying the $9.99 price tag. (PC, The Showdown Effect) 72/100
