I won't lie. I played this game for like 4 hours only but when I did, I got amazed about how good the gameplay, the graphics, story, sounds and quality of the game at all is! For 2 euros it was a great buy and totally worth the money. There are of course better games, but I can only recommend this one. Thanks, devs.
The Showdown Effect is another stillborn indie multiplayer-only game that has never reached the critical player-mass to be playable, despite being a good game. The few times when I managed to find other souls playing this, I actually had a great time gunning them down. But unless you have a couple of friends dying to play this with you, there is really nothing to do here, other than maybe the 5-minute tutorial to learn about the game you'll never be able to play...
It's one of those frenetic party action games that is best suited for messing around with your friends. You can still enjoy it playing online, but there is a severe lack of population. Possibly because of the bugs and visual glitches you'll encounter every odd game or two. However, it is something that you can pick up and play easily and have fun if you have the players who are ready to play such a game.
Silly, weird, fun gameplay, sometimes has odd visual glitches. Fun with friends.
Reviving the action movies theme from the 80's and 90's, Showdown Effect brings a good gameplay and nice characters. The game is multiplayer only, but is very competent at this: the gameplay is very nice and funny, especially if you are playing with your friends, each charater has i'ts own special ability, and you can choose one depending on your playing style. The scenarios are very beautifull too, evokingold movies from our childhood. The bad side of the game is the very few choices, mainly scenarios, and if you want some new weapons you will have to pay for it. Even with it's problems, Showdown Effect is a funny and fun game to play with your friends, so give it a chance and you will like it.
