Game Impressions

Great game! One request for a fix, however: the dialogue text is very blurry and nearly unreadable on my 3gs.

This looks amazing but I heard it has no multiplayer so I can't really say the price is worth it for no multiplayer. Will there be an update in the future, soonish, to add multiplayer?

The end... Wow. Everything is just wow - it's amazing. Now yes, I've played better games on consoles, but on my phone in bed was a first for me and I loved every single moment of it.

Just a few things that annoyed me:
Dialogue rushes way too fast. Especially at the very end of sector 9, it feels like the voice actors had to compress the dialogue to fit into the "elevator time".

There is a section where John says "I need that elevator, Sara!" (not sure what chapter) and I died a few times there - making me redo the previous shootout is just cruel, there needs to be a save point between them.

When in cover, to break out you need to pull "down" which seems a bit weird if it's on an angle.

If I hold down shoot and John reloads, I need to let go and press the fire button again before he shoots again. It's very annoying, but only happened rarely to me.

After completing the game on "medium" difficulty I got the achievement for "easy" as well. Not sure if this was intended...

Some of these things have been mentioned already, but I just posted my experiences.



Closing comments:
It's past 2am and I will proceed to tell everyone I know who would be interested about this game. They don't need any more sleep...

Also, damn I'm impressed !
How does this game compare to the other TPS's out there on iOS? I enjoyed Splinter Cell, but that has zero replay value. Does this game have replay value and I tend to get bored easily with about 90% of iOS games....will this game become boring once the graphics factor wears off?

Well, I was playing ShadowGun on my break at work and believe it or not, a small crowd of people gathered because, and I quote, "You won't believe how insane this game looks". No-one believed it was a real time game until I proved I was controlling the character. There was genuine "wows" and "no way" reactions.

These guys are a mix or iOS and Android users, the later were delighted when I told them it was coming to Android soon.
