Secret Ponchos' seemingly simple gunplay is rewardingly deep, but its content is otherwise disappointingly shallow.

Poor matchmaking and punishing XP penalties kill the desire to partake in the slow progression

Secret Ponchos exudes depth despite its limited features.

Although the foundation for a great online twin-stick shooter has been laid with Secret Ponchos, it's going to need more content and a meatier core mode to really keep people interested -- until then, I think the game will struggle with keeping some of its community. Personally, I really hope that Ponchos catches on and doesn't have to ride into the sunset.
