Remember how other shooters felt so slow after playing Platinum's Vanquish? Stripped of your exoskeleton suit, unable to propel yourself (knees-first!) past enemies in a panic-stricken escape? It felt like losing an arm.
Capcom's E.X. Troopers captures that very feeling when its combat is at its frantic and charged best, when all of its third person shooter idiosyncrasies click into place.
