9 Monkeys of Shaolin shines through its strengths of variety, a surprising amount of combat depth, and the accessibility of quick jump and out gameplay. The package is both complimented and enhanced by its coop multiplayer and intriguing story. While its performance and design oddities are enough to raise an eye brow, we don’t think it’s enough to nix the fun that the game offers. 9 Monkeys of Shaolin comes easy to recommend for fans of the genre and worth a look for anyone who likes some mindless fun.
Simply put, Star Renegades is an indie masterpiece. The depth of its gameplay and tactics make it one of the most creative and rewarding turn based experiences available today. Couple that with captivating visuals and an endearing story and cast of characters make this one that you cannot miss. As one of our most anticipated indie releases from the last two years, Star Renegades was more than worth the wait.
There is no doubt that this is a visually impressive game with a healthy amount of replay value. It’s also easy to pick up and play either alone or with a friend. But the core gameplay gets stale way too quickly and won’t be able to keep your attention for long.
