Meltdown (Video Game Review)
Recently ported onto PC from the iOS and Android, Meltdown sees the player stepping into the combat boots of generic silent space marine Zed, fresh off of the cloning vats his kind are churned out from. Well, actually that’s not entirely fair, he’s still far more memorable than any Call of Duty protagonist. Tasked with taking down a rogue AI on a space station by a shadowy corporation, Zed must fight his way down multiple levels armed only with his bandanna and a wide assortment of guns. The thing is though, none of this matters and for once this is a move for the better. Forgotten even as the tutorial begins, the game instead places total emphasis upon what it does best: Classic top-down arcade style shooting.
