Guerrilla Bob Review
Gameplay: Guerrilla Bob plays much like Minigore with levels. There is a lot of gameplay time, but I found myself getting bored of the game fairly quickly because the gameplay got repetitive. The game did pick up a bit towards the middle, though. There are also new guns to unlock, and fun bosses to fight. The trailer for the game looked better than how the actual game played. I was somewhat disappointed, but the game played decently, none-the-less.
Graphics: The graphics are crisp, clean, and original. When I play this game, I know it's Guerrilla Bob just by looking at the graphics.
Sound: The sounds of the guns are excellent. The music goes great with the theme and I love it. The only problem was that the sound was a little on the quiet side, but no big deal. I just cranked up the volume a bit. There is also a lot of humorous dialogue going on with the main character as he pelts down enemies.
Controls: This is the part right here that frustrates me the most. The gameplay is good, the graphics are amazing, and the sound gets you absorbed in the game... but the controls are just irritating. I'll put it this way, in Minigore, the player moves moderatly slow, so there's no problem in aiming and shooting. In Guerrilla Bob, the character moves way faster and he can only see a small portion of the map, so when he's trying to shoot and run at the same time it gets challenging. It would be really easy to control too, if there was more that 2 different speeds, stopped and sprinting. The controls just don't feel smooth. If I slightly drag in the direction I want to go he starts sprinting. For such a well made game, a little mistake like this is such a let down. I did end up getting used to the controls some what, but it wasn't fun, and it could have been resolved so easily. Fix the controls!
Price: The price is fair for the amount of gameplay, but it does sort of feel like they stole my money, since I was expecting one of the best games to hit the iDevice.
Replay Value: I wasn't really encouraged to play the game any longer, after I beat the campaign. Endless mode is for Minigore, not Guerrilla Bob.
Guerrilla Bob has much potential, but due to its lack of replay value or smooth controls, it is only a decent game, and not among the best. I would recommend Guerrilla Bob to hard-core action game fans that enjoyed games like Minigore, but I would not recommend this game to people that wanted the next best game for the iDevice. I made sure to beat the game and even try the survival mode, but I can't give this game a perfect score, even though I so badly wanted to. Personally, this game won't stay on my iPod any longer.
Replay Value: 7/10
Overall: 8/10 [Decent]
