A few weeks back I did a Game-A-Week (one hour initial gameplay review) of the indie top-down shooter Steel Storm: Burning Retribution. I enjoyed it but wasn’t overly keen as it was lacking content such as big boss fights, varied enemies and extra weaponry. The developers of the game Kot-in-Action came across my review and suggested I try out Episode 2 of the game as it had a lot of the content I was wanting from the game.

Been away some of this week and had little chance to game other than a few hours of Pokemon Platinum on my 3DS during the journey. That said I’ve been trying to play through the campaign of Steel Storm (co-op) since I’ve been back so I can give it a more comprehensive review. Unfortunately I may have encountered a bug where our vehicle dies and refuses to spawn, was fine the first time as it only happened to me; my girlfriend was able to finish off the level for us. The second time it happened to both of us and we were unable to finish off a boss fight. Would have been fine but we currently have no idea which level that boss fight was on >.< so we’re going to load up the game tomorrow and hopefully finish it off. I will say that the second episode of the game feels a lot better than the first; added weapons, giant bosses to fight and more enemies!
Going to be grabbing some food and then starting a new Game-A-Week which will be an hour of the game Homefront. Picked this up incredibly cheap recently and been dying to test out the single player campaign as it’s written by the writer/director of Red Dawn. Until then I’ll leave you with a picture of the boss from Steel Storm I was fighting; twas huge and entered the level via an elevator! ^.^
Title: Steel Storm: Burning Retribution
The Gist: Steel Storm: Burning Retribution is a modern imitation of classic top down shooters which has you fight against constant hordes of enemies using a variety of weaponry you pick up as you play through the game. I’m playing the game via LAN Co-op and hope to double the carnage! Continue reading
