Considerations On Fuse: What It Is, What It Isn’t

Platform Nation: Reviewing games can be a tough nut to crack. There are a lot of temptations that you have to avoid to write something worthwhile and meaningful along with fun and easy to read. I’m not saying that I have it on lock, but I would like to think that I’m aware of more than a few common pitfalls. For instance, I’ve used the phrase “mixed bag” exactly once in my career and still regret it to this day. I never have (and hopefully never will) described a game as “visceral” or “cinematic” and left it at that. Those are easy ones to dodge once you’re aware of them. (Fuse, PS3, Xbox 360)

What it is
-Generic Shooter
-Another game with co-op
-A game that has a mystical object but doesn't explain how this object/where this object came from.
-A game with generic story. "The plot follows these agents as they attempt to stop the shadowy organization, run by a man named Fable, who plans to use Fuse to make his weaponry more powerful."

What it isn't
-Insomniac best work
-The game you thought it would be back during E3 2011
-A game I plan on buying anytime soon.

Given Insomniac track record they could've done better than this.

You missed fun and smooth gameplay.
Glitch free, challenging AI and tight menu system for tracking trophy/achievements.

It's a generic.....fun game. I attribute it's poor sales to genre fatigue, word of mouth from poorly informed individuals. Some who actually played the demo and dislike it I wholly respect. Many however didn't even bother trying it.

i played the demo all the way through and through WTF Insomniac

I thought to myself why they left Sony to go work for EA?

I thought where s the magic Insomniac because i have seen and played better shooters

I thought to myself where is a decent story Insomniac?

I thought to myself where are the cooler weapons Insomniac?

Gaming is a brutal business and i believe Insomniac has really put itself in a very tough position, do they go back to sony or try to find another 3rd party publishers?

Your teams A.L so terrible, that I had to laugh because it's sad! Matchmaking and the netcode both suck too. This game is ONLY ENJOYABLE when playing with other ppl with mics. Fuse is a Online only game!
