PostSubject: Over G Fighters   Sat Apr 26, 2008 7:55 am

Metachronos overall score = 5.0 / 10

Positive
- Lots of different planes to unlock
- Campaign is surprisingly long

Negative
- Weak mission design
- Planes usually feel sluggish, and the control options don't help much
- Really bland voice acting

The bulk of the game's action is found in its story mode, which sends you on several missions as you attempt to take out a terrorizing army that's got its hands in conflicts around the globe. Each set of missions is broken up into its own campaign, and as you select missions, other branches in the campaign become unavailable. Since some specific missions unlock planes (and achievement points), this means you'll either have to follow along with a FAQ or play through multiple times to receive every reward.



Each mission branch ends up in the same place, though. At the end of every area, you'll get into one or two longer missions that have you fulfilling multiple roles. For example, in the first part you might have to dust a couple of enemy fighters, but the second part might have you launching air-to-ground missiles at tanks. Unfortunately, the difference between these two activities really isn't much.

Visually, the game has a dry, bland look to it that doesn't fit with the rest of the Xbox 360's lineup. Visual effects are kept to a minimum, and aside from good-looking water, the ground doesn't look so hot. The plane models look good, but since you're going to be firing missiles from a distance, you'll never get a good look at them outside of the plane select screen unless you choose the behind-the-plane view, which isn't so great. You can also opt for a cockpit view, which blocks too much of the screen to be effective. The first-person, cockpit-free viewpoint is the most useful perspective available. All in all, Over G Fighters is a dull jet simulator with shoddy controls, lackluster mission design, and a modest presentation. At a budget price, this game would be slightly easier to swallow, but it's a bum deal at $59.99.
