Twisted Arrow is a story-based archery-style shooter from Phaser Lock Interactive. You play as an agent armed with a super fancy techno-bow, loosing overpowered arrows into the bodies of a high-tech paramilitary force occupying your city.
3 GREAT THINGS:
1 - Story mode is actually pretty rad. Sort of a Goldeneye feeling. Moving freely around city feels nice. Dodging bullets feels good.
2 - Being an archer is a cool spin on FPS Genre and you can choose diff arrows.
3 - Shield and smart bow - Forgot I had that a lot
3 NOT-SO-GREAT THINGS:
1 - No Checkpoints?!!!! Whaaa!!!???
2 - Hard to tell why you die sometimes
3 - No level up / unlockables - Skill based play is cool, but would be better if they rewarded you more.
Twisted Arrow is a really fun, but challenging VR shooter with just enough variety and freshness for a good time. Dodging bullets, and loosing arrows into bad guys' faces gives you a distinct "I'm Legolas and this is my city" feeling that you just don't get with ordinary shooters. It feels like a very welcome homage to some of my favorite video games from back in the day. And I give it a very solid 5 arrows to a bad guy face. If you're looking to feel like green arrow, this is the game for you.
