Deployment is a huge amount of fun and ultimately it's just nice to sit down with a great gameplay experience and enjoy it. The matches being so short really means you can just jump on for ten minutes and get through a few games without worrying about not having enough time, and since every match is fast paced and each shoot-out is usually a clutch affair it never fails to be exciting.

It lends itself well to those who simply want to quickly boot up a game and knock out a few matches within minutes. But if the basic loop of fight until you win isn't enough to keep you coming back for more, there is nothing else on offer to change your mind.

Deployment is unique in that it blends arcade style shooters with competitive elements. Procedurally generated levels and power ups are a fun addition to the action as well. Unfortunately, there was no online community to be found when this game was deployed onto Steam.

Deployment is a great effort that just fell short for me.
