HELLDIVERS Review - GotGame

"I’m pretty straightforward when it comes to games, I either hate or love them with all my heart. Strange enough, this wasn’t the case with Arrowhead Game Studios’ top down shooter HELLDIVERS. While the first couple of hours were a complete nightmare for me, the rest were something I classify as a mystery for both me, and the rest of the world."

"I’m pretty straightforward when it comes to games, I either hate or love them with all my heart."

Reviews don't mean much to me anyway, but that statement is especially cringeworthy coming from a reviewer. Just like with pretty much anything else, there's usually a middle ground.

In another note the review missrepresents the games purpose.

"HELLDIVERS sets itself apart from other games by approaching a rather risky style. It doesn’t feature a comprehensive story, but instead focuses on character progression. Your only purpose in the game is to finish missions in order to gain experience and level up your character."

Crucially, this statement ignores the games 'war' system, where alongside individual progress you fight to increase the influence of the human race over the alien populations. Collectively.

The review itself is horribly brief, poorly written, and overlooks significant areas of the game. When a reviews purpose can be considered to provide the consumer with an informed opinion on a particular title, this review categorically fails in that task and in doing so, isn't worth anyone's time.

Vita's 10 Best Online Games

VGChartz's Adam Cartwright: "Competing with other players online is ingrained into the gaming ecosystem these days, with every hardware manufacturer (even the previously resistant Nintendo) offering ways to connect to others over the internet to engage in multiplayer. Ever since SEGA blazed a trail with their gone-too-soon Dreamcast and titles such as Chu Chu Rocket and Phantasy Star Online, the console landscape changed towards embracing the internet – solidified further by Microsoft’s Xbox initiative in 2001.

On handhelds, inroads into online gaming were slower, but with the advent of Sony’s PSP in 2005 that changed again and suddenly portable experiences were offered that could also connect with other players across the world. This was refined further with their next-generation handheld the PlayStation Vita, which offered improvements like easily accessible friends lists, system-based party chat, alongside some of the best portable online games that were available at the time of its release."

Killzone Mercenary has spectacular gameplay and great mp. Underrated game.

Helldivers was pretty awesome to have on Vita.

NFS MW worked well on Vita.

Killzone Mercenary is not only a phenomenal KZ, it has the best integrated system shared between the campaign and the online community. I wish more shooters were this incredible.
