There is potential for amusing cat-and-mouse exchanges, but a lobby full of humans is hard to find.

Murderous Pursuits is an irregular experience with a strong lack of elements to produce a real motivation to enjoy hours and hours of murdering in the ship. It's a shame: looks different to any other game lately.

Murderous Pursuits is a fine continuation of The Ship and the concepts it implemented so well. The core of the game is extremely solid, delivering a fun multiplayer experience throughout every match. The only problem is that there's just not enough here to keep most people coming back on a regular schedule. For the price the amount of content is fine, but the missing potential at launch is tough to get past.
