IGN: The Shoot Review

There is a place for games like The Shoot, and it will appeal to a very specific audience of casual players, but for everyone else, it's hardly worth the price of admission. If you happen to find it in the bargain bin and are looking for some easy Trophies, you might want to give it a shot, but otherwise pass.

Presentation - 5.0
Graphics - 7.0

Time Crisis it is, then.

I played it and it was good for what it is, but I don't think anyone was expecting this to be a killer app.

Knushwood Butt2855d ago

Link's Crossbow Training has better gameplay than this, apparently:

ABizzel12855d ago (Edited 2855d ago )

Link's CB was $20

The Shoot is $40.

Tommykrem2855d ago

Yeah, Time Crisis: Razing Storm looks to be a more complete package in more than one way. And it has a cheezy story, so I'm pretty much sold on that one. But I still had some hope for the shoot.

you know everybody is saying there waiting for a good game with PSmove when the best games are the ones patched (heavy rain tiger woods 2011 MAG RE5 etc) so why not play those? most of u have them already and since they are kinda old and if u dont have them u can get most of them cheap so why not play them now instead of getting on rail shooters and games full of mini games?

Or just remaster the old ones. That would have been cool.

MachinaMaw2855d ago

Agreed, package House of the Dead I - IV and I'm sold.

callahan092855d ago

Sony doesn't make House of the Dead. Sega does. If anybody's going to do it it would have to be Sega (and I hope they do!). Time Crisis is Namco, just to throw that out there. Sony never really had a shooter franchise of their own like this, but with the PS Move being a viable controller for such types of games, they wanted to bring a game like that out, and even if a lot of people aren't going to consider it a great game it seems, I think it's great that they made a game of this genre to go with their new controller. I will have to try out the demo for this. It looks like a lot of fun and I love this kind of game.

Sorry, but on-rail shooters should stay at the arcades.

Miraak82 2855d ago

its been a long time since I've seen an arcade around

Gambit072855d ago

Movie theaters have them now.

Bass_fisherman2855d ago

That must be in your "america"cause i dont see that here

raztad2855d ago

I liked the demo and I think IGN reviews are plain bad most of the time.

despair2855d ago

if you read the review he makes some valid points, its going to appeal to a limited audience and so it got a rating to that effect, I think its a good review and while I don't like many of IGNs reviews this was seems good, sometimes harder reviews will force developers to make better games, at least that's my hope.

TheBlackSmoke2855d ago

Yea but for this type of genre what more can you expect? It's an attempt at an on-rails light gun shooter and the end result is an on-rails light gun shooter.

Marking it down because it might not be to your taste is stupid. If you cant be bothered to research a game before you buy it that's on you not the game.

despair2855d ago

true but its not just the limited scope of the game, its the lack of content and atmosphere in the game, just look at this compared to Time Crisis, I would pick up time crisis in a heartbeat but not the shoot. The game genre might be similar or the same but the execution is completely different.

blackburn52855d ago (Edited 2855d ago )

Suprise, suprise. Look whose giving The Shoot a lower score then everyone else. IGN. The same IGN that gave Tumble a 3.5 when it was a perfectly functional game. It's just as I suspected. I agree with raztad. IGN has had the lamest and unreasonable reviews for a long time now. If they say a game is bad it usually is the opposite and vice versa. I never listen to any reviews from IGN, G4 or Kotaku, good or bad. Would rather Joystiq any day.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2855d ago (Edited 2855d ago )

Lol, 3.5 for Tumble?

IGN is a joke.

Most reviews have 7, 8 and few 9 for Tumble.
