Bad

Better 3D on 360 Indie game. No 3D depth.

I rented it in 3D. How? Just get a copy red/cyan glasses from a 3D movie like Spy Kids 3D, Hanna Montana Concert, or Creature from the Black Lagoon (on Betamax). As long as it's red and cyan, (a light blue) it doesn't matter.

The whole success of this game depends on how well the 3d effects are. I've seen better effect with red/cyan glasses on a 360 Indie game called 3D Infinity. The 3D effects are barely passable. The colors are cool in 3D, meaning, you can see in full color with glasses, because the lines are so thin, but the 3D is not very extreme, and a light gun shooter is not conducive of making a game where 3D effects help. The 3d effects shows layers of things in front of things, but not the characters having depth within themselves. (in the red/cyan sense) You think giant bees would lok spherical in body, and have their stings come right to you on the screen. The 3d looks like animated cardboard cutouts placed on different planes. By the way this is a description of the Wii graphics. Most people say the 360 graphics are Wii-like. The only it might look better is if it has better red/cyan effects, which I don't know if it has.

As for the actual game, it's a below average light gun shooter which needed the 3D gimmick to have any hope of succeeding. Some people say it's to easy on hard. I say it's too hard on easy. Maybe a programer accidentally switched or confused the settings. I don't know. Accidentally shooting the hostages just registers as a no hit, not a penalty. (and it's still pretty hard on easy). Controls sound better on the Wi using a Wiimote aiming as opposed to thumbstick cursor.

Anyone who has 3D glasses should look at the 3D effects on the 360 version, and tell me if they're cardboard cutouts on different planes, or if it has better 3D.

Horrible

No way to calibrate?

Game was very lame and the inability to calibrate made it horrible. The worst game I have ever attempted to play, no fun, no control, lame graphics. i might have stayed interested if it was calibrated correctly.

Ok maybe not the best, but still the idea is awesome! We beat the easy level with 3 players in about 30 minutes. The gameplay was great, the graphics were bright and fun. I think there needs to be more fun party style games like this one.
