Looks like it might be a fun game.
Has more than a hint of freemium about it though.

It might actually have a simple entertainment value.
And, yeah probably freemium, but that is where the money is made on the App Store these days.
CSR Racing is the perfect example of that. Despite it being a pointless 10 second hit.

Gameloft is on a mission to make a game for every possible genre. This game will definitely be freemium.

I predict the top tier guns to be 100 dollars of IAP.

We have tons of good games of this exact same genre (Gun bros) and theme (Free 2 die, upcoming mimigore zombies) for iOS - just to name a few.

Gameloft serisously wants to dominate each and every genre on the iOS. And like others say, this will definitely be another freemium money milking game.

Free or $0.99 or $6.99?

I think it'd be free, but I'm holding out for at least $0.99 as that will make the game very much less dependent on IAPs (like A7).

Unfortunately that's the opposite of what Gameloft wants.

Okay, and all that is a bad thing why?

If its a genre that has lots of good games and sells, why wouldn't they want in on it?
That's simple economics.

And it's perfectly natural for large companies to want to dominate the field they are in. That's what Apple does.

And as I said previously, freemium is where the money is at as proven by CSR Racing alone. 12 million dollars a month earned by a total freemium money hole and mediocre experience. And still it earns.

We haven't seen the game yet so I'm going to reserve judgement till then rather jump on the anti Gameloft bandwagon.
