I can't help but feel a bit sorry for Gunstar Studios. The game they ended up with is nothing like their original plans and you can tell this single player shooter has been created by hacking bits from their MOBA. Despite it's many small flaws, it's not a bad game, it's not even dull, it's just very rudimentary. A noble failure, I really wish I could score the game higher but sadly I can't.

Phobos Vector Prime: The First Ring is a fun arcade-style twin-stick shooter on PS4 that does some things right while falling short in others. It's a good first entry from this Spanish indie team, and I look forward to seeing how they handle the next entry in the series.

I liked a lot of what I got from Phobos Vector Prime: The First Ring. I know it's a start to the franchise, with more modes and stories coming further down the line, which is why what is currently there might feel a bit light on content. But after playing the game, I do have to say that for the small asking price, this is definitely a good deal!

Given a few more months I think one would be writing quite a different review.
