Review: By Jon Donnis
As someone who is more of a console gamer, I was happy to see a great looking arcade style game come to the PC. So first thing I did was find out my wired Xbox controller, and plugged it into my laptop. None of this keyboard control nonsense for me!

Also worth noting that both Xbox 360 and Xbox One wired controllers will work with this game. And the experience is much better, even if it will take you a few moments to get used to the controls, for example on pretty much all driving games you have the classic RT = Accelerate and LT = Brake system, here you push in the direction you want to move, and the LT and RT buttons have other jobs. You can probably remap the controls if you go into settings though.

Controls aside, the game is pretty simple, you drive a little vehicle about equipped with rockets and weapons, you try to gain control of a bomb, and you plant it in your enemies area. This is very much an online game, and you play with and against other players around the world. I did not notice any lag, and the game played along perfectly, although you have to put up with those annoying waits in the lobby as other players click the "ready" button, but that is very much the norm these days.

This game is an easy to pick up, arcade game that you will find will waste many an hour, and as the game gets updates etc it can only improve, I have already published news of tournaments and competitions the makers have introduced, so there really are some great incentives to play.

A good fun game, easy to pick up. Decent graphics and sound, and fun easy game play.

I give this game a strong 8/10
