MechRunner offers little more enjoyment or innovation than the thousand of mobile runner games on the market – except it cost at least 10 times more. Sure, it's reasonably pretty, shiny and it does have a catchy soundtrack but the gameplay leaves a lot to be desired. MechRunner is just not fun and a huge disappointment.
If you were planning a mass multiplayer night with your buddies this is the kind of game that will get you swearing like it's going out of fashion, as your buddy consistently slashes your face off (in the game) when you didn't see him/her coming.
When the game is working as it should, the slick gunplay, simple premise, abrasive sense of humour and clean art style make it an enjoyable playlist co-op game for when you're having some friends over for pizza and gaming. It's a shame that the journey from PC to PS4 has been so rough and that Tango Fiesta is so filled bugs and glitches that I find this version hard to recommend to anyone. Do yourself a favour and go for a Tango Siesta instead (or get the game on PC).
For newcomers, Lock's Quest is a solid tower defense/strategy/RPG/action game that should merit your attention. If the old school aesthetic doesn't appeal then well, it's all over this game so you may not have the wherewithal to dig and see what else this game has to offer. At times it's tough as balls and will certainly test your skills, however the lengthy campaign ensures you get enough bang here for your buck.
I'm sure younger people who have the reflexes of a cat playing slap base in a wind tunnel could probably enjoy the single player mode, but for me, the manic nature and the stupid way you can lose the ball through no fault of your own waters down the single player experience, but thankfully the multiplayer more than makes up for it .
