Mothergunship Review: Should you Buy it?
HI Gamers and welcome to another review and today I’m reviewing Mothergunship. So what is this game? MOTHERGUNSHIP is a bullet-hell FPS where you craft your own guns, play together with your friends, fight gigantic bosses and defeat a robotic alien armada that conquered Earth. Take the fight to the enemy, craft gun monstrosities that no reasonable person could ever lift, and experience randomized mayhem as you battle your way to the heart of the fleet to destroy the MOTHERGUNSHIP.
“OK SOLDIER! You are Earth’s last hope! I know you’ve heard that before, yes. And I know you failed before. But that was before, wasn’t it? That was back when you had a body. That was back when you had a boring peaceful Earthling life and back before you were a disembodied head plucked by kleptomaniac data-hoarding robot alien invaders. That was before Earth was lost.”
“But this time, it will be different. Our numbers may be small. Our bodies may have been incinerated. And our heads may be jarred in gooey preservation liquid that tastes terrible. But our will has grown. Our new robotic mech bodies are stronger. Faster. 97% recyclable. Our mission is clear, Our determination strong, and our guns are very, very big. We will invade these invader ships and destroy them from within! One gunship at a time we will fight our way to the heart of their fleet–to that hulking monstrosity, the MOTHERGUNSHIP itself!”
So I have spent some time in the game and may I say I was having so much fun fighting off hordes of aliens. The game runs on the Unreal Engine so that means fast pace shooting at a beautiful 60FPS. What makes this game really stand out is the crafting of weapons. In MOTHERGUNSHIP you can create the gun of your dreams with one of the most modular gun-crafting systems ever seen in a video game. Want to have a twelve-barrel gun that shoots homing rockets? Or do you prefer a lightning shotgun? And what gun wouldn’t look better with a fish-tank affixed to the top. You can create so many different crazy weapons the gameplay will feel different every time you bring a new weapon to the fight. The most important thing to remember is that to survive against the overwhelming odds is to dodge the incoming fire. Each ship hosts hordes of alien machines, deadly traps, and intimidating bosses, all set on preventing you from saving humanity. On the Xbox One, I was getting slowdown’s issues every time I finished an area and this happens all the way through the game, hopefully, this can be fixed with a patch.
The Developer has created a good looking game on the Xbox One. Mothergunship has very nice textures, even when you are up close you can see that the developer has put in a lot of care in crafting the world. I would also like to say that the game as very nice lighting and shadow effect that bring’s the game to life. I was very surprised to see a good looking game developed by a small studio. The sound production is so good in this game, this is another area where they have spent a lot of time and effort. The voice acting in the game is so good and you can follow the story so easy. I really like the music in the game as well, it goes well with the fast-paced gameplay with its rock music tracks.
I really enjoyed my time shooting my way through hordes of enemies and creating my dream weapon. Grip Digital has created a good looking game set in space. The more I play, the harder it was to put the controller down. Speaking about the controls, the game feels just right in your hands and its what you expect from a fast FPS like this. The game has great potential and I hope it has the success that it deserves. If you are a big fan of Doom like FPS then this is a must Buy.
Rating: 4 out 5 (GREAT)
