Thunderbolt: Starhawk Review

Thunderbolt: There’s something satisfyingly visceral about Starhawk’s self-constructing, tower defence inspired structures as they fall from the sky.

Well it perma-dropped to $29.99 in Canada.
So something categorically went wrong.

Too niche? Black lead had no baring on my enjoyment. (I'm white)

I think the spawn raping and tank abuse early on destroyed noob fun. Leaving the core fans. But even they have left in large numbers. Perhaps more interesting maps? Or a third random enemy?

Either way....flopped hard.
