What A Surprise
by: starfox007    On: 2004-03-21

I was at are local Walmart the other day and I found Blowout for $10 bucks. They had a ton of other games but Blowout looked great and was the cheapest. So I picked it up and lets just say every one of my friends said your stupid don't buy it, it will be dumb because it is $10 bucks. Well in the end all 3 of my friends are going to buy it now and respect a game for whatever the price is.

Gameplay well lets just say mix alot lot of guns, great sound effects, explosions and a infested ship of creatures who look like the bugs from Starship Troopers and you get Blowout.

Sound like I said is awsome and do I mean awsome. A A+.

Graphics are ok just think of it as a PS2 game ported to the Gamecube Their is not one slow frame rates per second. The cutscenes look great and the enviroment looks alive but not detailed.

Controls are extremely easy after 10 minutes.

The setup is easy when you talk about finding your way around to the maps to the switches everything is just easy and fast paced. When I say easy I don't mean you will wizzzz through this game in minutes because bosses and levels are hard damn hard.

Graphics 8/10

Sound 9.5/10

controls 9/10

Gameplay 9/10

Tilt 10/10

Overall 9.1

Cool, Old School Shoot-em-up
by: darelbarnett    On: 2004-03-18

A side-scrolling 3rd person shooter that has elements similar to old NES games, something like a cross between Contra and Metroid, except the graphics are much more polished. This game is especially appealing to an older gamer; the game is not overly gross for younger gamers, but it isn't easy and the control scheme and map functions may be frustrating for a pre-teen player. This game is a delight for gamers who grew up with NES. The maps are complex and the bosses are not easy. The "360-degree" aiming system is very unique; the main stick is used for controlling the character and the C-stick is used for aiming. This bargain game is worth the price; however the Amazon price of $15 is actually higher than what you'll find at your local mega-department-store-supercenter (it's only $10 there).
