Livelock is a fun ride, but it is short-lived that is to its benefit and detriment. The game never overstays its welcome, but with how brisk you can get through the game makes it hard to see its value. There's plenty of ways to replay the game, but I never felt compelled to do any of it again with another character or try to find someone online. Livelock has some interesting things going for it, but I won't be going back until some expansions add something worth coming back to.

Livelock is a solid, but unremarkable game on almost every front. It plays fine, it looks acceptable, it sounds alright and the story is serviceable.

Livelock is a fun top-down shooter with fine tuned mechanics and gorgeous graphics. The story isn’t as strong as one could hope, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that the game will offer many hours of enjoyment for shooter fans.

Livelock is a phenomenal looking game with pretty good gameplay mechanics for its genre, but the lack of any real community and a short campaign leave much to be desired. It is best played with a group of friends.

It's a good game but the game came a little too late as there are other top-down shooter games which can deliver a lot more entertainment than what this game can offer. But if you are just looking for another game to dive into and finish, then it is a game worth picking up for its price.

Livelock is a solid online twin-stick shooter with some well done features yet it also suffers from some serious problems.

The dark, foreboding, post-apocalyptic worlds are beautifully drawn with some amazing attention to detail

Livelock is still worth checking out, so long as you know you're getting a B-level, sci-fi action-RPG with guns. It would've been great if it had received some more care and polish. It doesn't add anything new to the genre, and it can be rather obtuse when it comes to upgrading and learning about your new upgrades, but the basic gameplay is solid. The fast pace of upgrades may provide players with enough encouragement to forge ahead. The blemishes in the aesthetics and audio throw things off, and the lack of a more robust multiplayer, especially offline co-op, definitely counts against it.

If you want lasers and exploding robots, you've got 'em here in Livelock. Otherwise, there isn't much for you.
