Just beated the single player demo. I agree, it has very impressive graphics. Especially the enemies and the explosions look gorgeous. The background graphic is solid and doesn´t react to bullets. I didn´t expect it anyways.
The voiceover is a little cheesy. The music is good and dramatic. There are many control options: play with the c-stick, the CPP or with the stylus like in Dementium. I have the CPP, so that was my choice. You can change the sensivity and invert the aiming, so gameplay gets smooth the way you want it.
The game plays like a little brother from Gears of War and that smartphone game "Shadowgun". I like the metallic look from those alien robots.
To me a 10 €-Firestorm sounds good when you compare it to all those silly looking 3DS-games. I will buy the singleplayer for 10€. I expected more because of the MP, but the moment I heared about the "buy what you prefer" I was in.
It´s not the best game of the world, but a very solid shootout.

I might give this a chance. I bought Siesta Fiesta in hope of a good Arkanoid-type game and was disappointed. Maybe this one is more interesting.

@ryanator008: Well, you know, I´m over 40 years old with young kids. Many of my old schoolfriends have kids too. I as a collector don´t want to pirate games and I i don´t wanna show my children to do that.
But some of my old schoolmates bought each of their sons a DS BECAUSE of the unbelievable easy way to play pirated games. Then the 3DS came out and the FIRST question they came to me was: "Oh, cool, with 3D, is there any good R4 in stores?"
Another guy told me later: "We don´t buy the system, we cannot play games for nothing on it."

Very good action game. It turned out to be pretty hard on higher levels. And sometimes you could´nt see the other hunters on their tiny bikes.



Falk_Sturmfels commented on Nintendo 64x64: Doom 64:

Well, I agree mostly with Stevens opinion. The game has an outstanding atmosphere, and the idea of a soundtrack with noises of crying babys is still frightening.
But it is very hard to find all the parts from the Lasergun, which is very important to beat the final boss. And that part kills the game, because without a guide you can get a hold of maybe one of the four parts from the Lasergun. The other three are hidden behind nasty leveldesign. For example: destroy all oil-barrells in a level exept ONE particular. Then you reach other exits to further levels. If you don´t know it (like almost everybody without a guide) you suddenly make a leveljump forward (around six or seven levels, if I remember right) and miss Lasergunparts.
As a result you stand in front of the final boss and can´t do s...t. That kind of gamedesign destroyed back in the days the great and dark game for me.

Edit: Mmmh, I searched through youtube and found a video from a guy killing the final boss without the Laser. Mmh. I might try it again someday ... closing that old open file.

@Zorkthedork: Which is even more crazy. Watched that video with the guy playing Zelda with his feet? Again, I don´t get it. How long you have to train for something like that?
I´m happy that my wife doesn´t complain about me playing so much games. I can´t imagine what she would say if I would start training for speedruns or sitting half naked on the floor with my feet on the gamepad.
