Dystoria is one of those games that you just know may go on to achieve cult status. It's certainly not without merit, but it stumbles a bit in its execution of an otherwise promising concept. If we ever get a sequel — and I hope we do — that game could be something truly special.

Dystoria is a nice six-axis sci-fi shooter that offers some interesting challenges, but its mechanics and level design are flawed by several issues that make difficult to enjoy it for more than a couple of hours.
