The game controls as it has a very simple control scheme and the game stays primarily focused on fast paced arcade style gameplay that encourages players to replay levels to increase thier high score and to unlock new armors and weapons.
The graphic are average for the most part. Most of the detail will be found on the enemies and player models leaving the enviorment looking a bit bland with occasionaly blurry textures.
While the general gamplay is satisfying, the game is severely lacking in the variety department as all the levels contain the same bland city motif and the gamplay can get repetitive over time.
But despite its flaws The game still delivers an epic sense of scale to every encouter especialy when the bipedal mech come chrashing through the city.
