|Simple Rambo-style shooter cursed with below-par cinematics, I mean these things are just badly drawn and don't even had lip-synching done right.|
You truck around in a powered suit weilding a wrist-mounted machinegun and handheld bazooka. These seem to be all the weapons you ever get, though different characters have different bazooka types (shell, laser). It looks as though you'll be able to possibly select from multiple characters to play per stage, though in the first two stages the character selection list only has a single entry.
Unlike most games of this type, you can't run while shooting. It sure would have been nice if you could lock your shoot direction by holding the button down, then continue to move and strafe and so forth, but you can't do that here, you just gotta stand in place. So you run to a spot, snap off a quick burst, move to another spot, snap off a burst, etc. It works but it could have been better.
The enemies so far have been quite generic, and the boss I killed looked just like the regular soldiers, only brown and capable of taking more hits. Wow.
