"What can be better than Trapping your victims?"
Trapping your victims and stealing their traps.
Trap Gunner is an action game mixed with a lot of planning and strategy. Basically in Trap Gunner you and an opponent (whether it is a computer controlled A.I. or a friend) go head to head in a three dimensional battle ground. Let's break it down...
Gameplay: Let me just say this game is fun. First off you choose a character, from a guy in a trench coat to a robot on roller skates that shoots fireworks out of her butt (No joking either). Each character has many differences. These range between... Firearms, a close range attack, trap selection, speed, and stamina. Then when the game starts up you move your over character around to try and out think your enemy. You set traps and basically try and kill your opponent. Traps are set obviously and you have to watch out for them too. Traps range from Mines, bombs, gas, switch detonators, force panels (throws enemies), and pit falls. You can fight in about 20 well made battle grounds. This game also has a story mode which tells the selected characters story and is used to unlock stuff. Outstanding
Challenge: This game sports 3 difficulty levels which are perfect for what they say. Hard on Hard, but not to hard... Easy is easy for beginners. Only problem is that it's only really hard with 2 characters... Great
Control: This games controls are simple to pick up. One button does one think another does another, no confusing over lapping here... Outstanding
Story: The story is simple, everyone is trying to kill each other and some are related. Any ways their is a story mode for you to unlock everyone's story and just plain have fun. Average
Audio: The game has some great music complete with a option mode that let's you play them (which most new games lack...). The sound effects are pretty good. Every character has their own voice. Bullets and explosions sound great. The ''Unit,'' a strong chargeable weapon, has a nice touch to it. I can't really find any flaws with sound. Outstanding
Video: The graphics in this game are great, everything looks good in the actual game play. My only gripe with the visuals is the movies... or lack of them. The opening movie is anime, which I am not a big fan of. Average
Replayability: This game will last you a long time. You can got through the story mode 3 times with 6 characters and unlock 3 more. If you have a friend, this game is real fun and will last even longer. Great
I would recommend renting this game first. Even though I said it was good, it just might not be your style. It's a unique game so it will be different.
I give this game a 9.
