Fun arcade-y actionStebsis | June 22, 2014 | See all Stebsis's reviews »
Strike Vector is pretty fun multiplayer shooter. There are couple of modes to choose from and nice number of maps, and devs are adding new stuff monthly. Handling the ship takes a while to get used to because of how fast the action is. You can fly around in your ship like in a space-sim, but it can also transform to VTOL mode that stops the ship and you can move around horizontally. It takes couple of matches to get used to these mechanics and you'll be flying to wall couple of times at least, but once you get hand of it, it's incredibly fun.
What I really like is that everything related to gameplay is available to you right from the start, you can choose whatever weapons you want and modify them with couple different modifiers, like more precise shots or reloads faster. This is also kind of double edged thing because there isn't really anything to work for and what content there is, is gone fairly quickly. You only get some cosmetic stuff for levelling up so at least for me it did get boring after a while and stopped playing until next patch that added more stuff, and same thing happened after that too. This is fun game, and for the price you get a lot of great action, but if you want something meaningful to work for this might not be for you.
What's so good about Strike Vector?adrianching7 | June 13, 2014 | See all adrianching7's reviews »
Strike Vector is actually a rather interesting game to play because the fast paced FPS is extremely fun because you don't really know where you're going . This is actually the funniest part for me because you just laugh your head off when you die and then you figure out that you crashed into a building 5 seconds later. The transformation ability is this game reminds me of Transformers and other Mecha video games so players who love machines must try this game!
An awesome game you haven't playedDrMuffin | May 23, 2014 | See all DrMuffin's reviews »
Strike Vector is a great transformers (without the transforming) shooter blissfully gliding across various industrial styled levels. The game, rightly so, focuses on its central element of pitting up one non-transforming transformer to another in all out, no hold bars, brawl to blast each other out of the sky.
The game has some solid mechanics a ton of customisation options with one of the most intriguing flight combat I've seen. Note to the uninitiated: This is tough on beginners and will be even harder to master. Be prepared to tear a new one for some time. Pardon the vulgar expression.
