First impressions are... well just bad, game feels and plays like a low budget game. No AA controls ingame, but works well forcing on control panel. Mouse response is very abrupt, but lowering DPI on the mouse does the trick. Gameplay couldn't be simpler, old school Serious Sam or Painkiller feeling, just move fast and keep strafing and they won't touch you, but if you stay still you are dead. Basically you enter a room, kill every enemy, the door opens and you move to the next room. And over and over again, at least on first level, which I have finished.
However the game does not feel like Serious Sam or Painkiller at all, and that's a bad thing, it feels cheap, might be good for those times you feel bored and want some mindless shooting, but even for mindless shooting there are older games much better than this one (Painkiller for example).
Graphics are just average, textures are not great and, again, they feel like a cheap game. I don't know how to explain it, but on the screenshots it looks better than when you play it. Oh, and the game appears to be capped at 40fps, no matter the settings or AA, it's always 40. Even D3DOverrider couldn't make it run faster. Sound is just ok, it supports 5.1 surround and it works. Voice acting (tried in Spanish) is good, but I have only heard the girl.
I guess you get what you pay for, it has been just €19.99, but I have bought better games for this price.
