Top Critic Average
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.
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 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.
While Livelock's gameplay excels in its foundation, the challenge is inevitably stripped from it due to the pursuit of an arcade style feeling.
The dark, foreboding, post-apocalyptic worlds are beautifully drawn with some amazing attention to detail
Livelock is a solid online twin-stick shooter with some well done features yet it also suffers from some serious problems.
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 blast when played with friends. It holds its own in solo, but only for so long. The gameplay is sharp and easy to pick up and play for any level of player - I just wish it had longer legs.
Livelock is as generic a top-down shooter as you can get. The locations you find yourself fighting through, the enemies you take on, and the story itself come together in a package that works, but one which fails to inspire any semblance of fun.
Tuque Games delivers a traditional Twin Stick Shooter: frantic and fun arcade action is what you can expect from Livelock.
