The extent to which Broforce's ludicrously silly, testosterone-drenched stylings appeal will likely be the determining factor for most people in choosing to take a chance on the game. To miss out on it for this reason would be a real shame though; beneath its macho posturing is a fine game, easily one of the best 2D shooters of the last few years.
Unfortunately, these technical problems make it difficult to recommend Guns, Gore & Cannoli on PC in its current state. It's a real shame because underneath is a slick and well-designed side-scrolling shooter that pays homage to its noir and grindhouse inspiration while carving out an identity of its own.
Ultimately, Driveclub is a solid enough racing game, albeit one that's beset by some significant limitations. Casual fans of the genre are likely to have an enjoyable enough time but if you're looking for a title to plough hundreds of hours into, this isn't it.
Despite the nagging feeling that the game's mechanics are held up by a certain amount of smoke and mirrors, there's more than enough substance here to hold your attention for the fifteen to eighteen hours it takes to finish the game.
While some Souls purists may grumble that the easing of the series' legendary obfuscation strips away some of the sense of accomplishment that lies at the heart its unique appeal, From Software have managed to strike the right balance with Dark Souls 2, allowing more players to get the most out of the game without compromising on the fiendish difficulty that has become its hallmark.
