GAME REVIEW – Dirty Bomb (via Splash Damage)

Dirty Bomb is a fresh take on the FPS genre. I can dig that.

Fun action, instant play, and teamwork can help you win rounds fast.

I will say, the game froze twice during my first gameplay… so that wasn’t a good showing… however, overall, a fun and low cost FPS that could keep you engaged for hours.

MMOs.com said: “Dirty Bomb is a unique FPS that emphasizes teamwork over mindless fragging and is truly a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale genre. With great visuals, fast-paced strategic gameplay, and a great cast of playable characters, Dirty Bomb is definitely worth checking out.”

Gamespot.com said: “Defined by its predecessors, Dirty Bomb straddles the divide between old and new, never quite able to step out of the shadows of the games that came before. Still, if you’re looking for a decent multiplayer shooter on the very cheap, Dirty Bomb is a fast-paced possibility. However, I’m not confident that the core will improve enough for the game to reach beyond merely ordinary. While Brink sits in history as a game that tripped on its path to fame, Dirty Bomb will be fortunate to be remembered at all.”

About Dirty Bomb

Dirty Bomb takes first person shooters back to their purest roots in a fast-paced team game that will challenge even the most competent players. This game won’t hold your hand, in fact it is more likely to kick your teeth in. With no controller support or aim assist, all that lies between you and certain death is player skill and reaction. Work together or die alone in the most challenging team-based FPS.

A string of ‘dirty bomb’ attacks cripple London, leaving the Central Disaster Authority to restore it. When criminal syndicate Jackal begin disrupting and stealing their technology, the capital is thrown into chaos as mercenaries from across the globe are hired by both sides.

That’s where you come in. After all, what’s a little radiation sickness when there’s money to be made?
