Really Big Sky reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Some would maybe say: another shoot em up, what the hell for? Well, the hell for this one too! Linear classic evolving mode (and a really big sky as the name says), + lots of other different game modes (including retro gaming mode, mix, even a hippie mode) makes a difference! A favorite for me! Just waiting for a friend to join , co-op should be really fun!

The game is fun and dynamic but I confess that by the time it is so much the ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ on the screen that it is difficult to understand the reason for a defeat or a success. Too many effects makes the game fouilli. I do not especially recommend this shoot'em up but I do not recommend it for all. I wish I could put a neutral thumb (gray?) I distinctly prefer a Shmup like Jamestown than this kind of Visual mess.

I do not recommend this game. What for? I will explain in several points: the impossibility to put this game in 1080p full screen, it works only in windowed... His tutorial from the beginning is too complicated, I had to start it several times to understand. The goal? Shoot and advance, endless, without goals, with too repetitive music... There is no choice of difficulty, the game is already too difficult from the beginning. In short, I'm glad to have had it free thanks to a giveaway, because €6, you-you do well pigeoned for this game! Don't buy it.

First in the front I'm actually not a big fan of scrolling out from sons side and habs accordingly not played long yet. But holy ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ xD if I am a fan of something then of something that can trigger epilepsy fits and just so abge ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ t and extraordinary that you can hardly describe it. Exactly THAT offers me really big sky I think I haven't seen such an effect thundersed for a long time xD maybe lying to me but sometimes I have zero monking where ... Or WAS grade my ship is. Clear recommendation for those who stand on effects in the overmaas and fast sidescroller!! For the LSD lovers among you, the game should hardly be something new:P Wers has fetched cheerful not to fall out ...

When I played it for the first time, I immediately fell in love with this Game! The Game has good Graphics, cool Game modes, cool Music, and is extremely addictive! While you die countless times at the Beginning, you develop a strong hass-love to the Game, so you always want to try to get better and destroy all the Bosses (There are not a few of them)! Anyone who loves shoot em 'ups in the Massive-Bullet Styles like Contra will like This Game very much! The many Game Modes and many Updates always keep the Player ready, so it will take a very long time to have seen everything in the Game! For Beginners, there is the Pacific Mode where you can train in a bite, for Professionals the Hardcore Mode to stay in a mood!
