Gi - The Showdown Effect (PC) Review

Gi - For some, the 80s and 90s was the golden age of action movies. With such films as Rambo, Terminator and Die Hard; the action genre was all about big guns, and bigger explosions. That is the very essence Arrowhead Game Studios’(of Magicka fame) The Showdown Effect tries to capture. With huge guns, crazy firefights and multi-floored stages; this “2.5D” Shooter/Platformer hybrid feels just like those classic action movies. But does that feeling transfer into stellar gameplay? (PC, The Showdown Effect) 78/100
