Twin-stick shooters (Page 3)

Zotrix Review

Zotrix Review (PlayStation 4)

A less than stellar shooter

December 19, 2015 - I have a deep, abiding love for top-down, twin-stick shooters. I love the power-ups and the spray shots and the strafing and that sweet feeling of taking down a wall of enemies with just a sliver of health to spare. Unfortunately, Zotrix doesn't seem to understand on a very fundamental level what makes my heart go all pitter-patter for those games.

Yorbie - Episode One: Payback's a Bolt Review (PlayStation 4)

No one can stop this radical robot

March 30, 2015 - When you hear that a four player twin stick shooting platformer is out, it's easy to get excited. However, Yorbie may not quite be what you're looking for. It does have intriguing concepts, but is that enough to make it an enjoyable game?

Super Stardust Ultra Review

Super Stardust Ultra Review (PlayStation 4)

Good thing this spacecraft is equipped with two sticks

February 11, 2015 - As the fourth iteration on a PlayStation console, Super Stardust still holds up in its most Ultra form to date. However, is it worth adding yet another twin stick shooter to your collection or are you better off leaving it in the dust?

Undead Storm Nightmare Review

Undead Storm Nightmare Review (3DS)

Twin stick shooting with only one stick

January 23, 2015 - Zombies and twin stick shooters go together like peanut butter and brain jelly. Undead Storm Nightmare is yet another zombie-slaying shooter that boasts an interesting mix of gameplay mechanics but is that enough to compel you to survive another apocalypse?
