Expendables Rearmed Review | GameWoof

The original Expendable for the Dreamcast and PC was a twin stick shooter before twin stick shooters existed, or better yet, it was the precursor to the genre that has been done a million times ever since Geometry Wars popularized it way back in 2007. The original Expendable can’t properly be called a “twin stick shooter” because the Dreamcast only had one joystick, but all the other elements were there. Players controlled a character, in this case a burly marine looking man, who had to travel through a level while enemies attacked from all sides. It received mostly favorable reviews but was also criticized for its controls. So it should come as no surprise, with the recent growth in popularity of twin stick shooters that Expendable has been re-released for mobile devices with an improved control scheme, under the name Expendable: Rearmed (Android, Expendable: Rearmed) 3.5/5
