XBLIG Review - Night of Doom

xboxboxartThis could have easily been done as a dual stick shooter, but they are a dime a dozen. This is an extremely simple game. Go into one of the three levels, and survive for 10 minutes. That's it.

There are no weapon upgrades, no multiplayer (unfortunately). The only item pickups you get are grenades, health and a timer that knocks 30 seconds off the time needed to survive, which definitely comes in handy on the harder the difficulties.

Night of Doom is almost comically bad. I'll say that right off the bat. It's made by the same developer who made Roid Riot, which is an Xbox Live enabled space shooter. It would have been cool as hell to see a Live enabled multiplayer mode in this game, just because it's so simplistic. Make it like a poor man's Left 4 Dead. :) The only real reason I say it's "comically bad" is because you do one thing, and that one thing is actually kind of fun. You shoot down the bad guys. Read on though. It gets better.
