There are 5 classes to choose from - 3 ranged (explosives, lasers, or fire) and 2 melee. All classes can wear basic armor and use basic melee skills. As you level up, you can choose to broaden your armor, melee, or ranged skills; self-heal or self-charge your batteries; increase your carrying capacity; or build your resistance to the 4 types of damage (fire, electricity, infection, or radiation). You receive 1 skill point per level, but as you get more points in a skill, the cost to raise that skill becomes higher, meaning you may need to save your skill points from level to level. You also receive 2 points per level to put into strength (increases melee damage and carrying capacity), dexterity (increases movement rate), accuracy (increases chance of critical hits and critical multiplier), and endurance (raises hit points as well as resistance to damage).
While most of the missions are hack-and-slash (a few timed), the layout of the floors vary, as do the monsters you meet. Add in a nice background story and this game will keep you playing well past your bedtime.
Edit: I admit, I had not finished the game when I wrote the above review. The early part of the game is great, but once you get towards the end, it becomes very annoying.Read more ›
I was expecting something like the remake on the Sega Arcade Classics disc for the PS2 (an excellent game in its own right) but this is a totally new game with only a few tie-ins with the original arcade version. You only see the worm creatures a few times, for example; most of the aliens and weapons are entirely new designs.
It strongly reminds me of Diablo in terms of overall design, though more complex and a lot more interesting. Gameplay is fast, smooth, and reasonably fun. Levels load quickly and it doesn't suffer from the typical PSP control issues.
I found the background story rather predictable, and much of the voice acting is not up to par--some places it's quite good, others it's laughably awful. And many times the dialog gets chopped off early, which just adds to the silliness. (The movies can be turned off, though.)
The first time I played it took me about 12 hours to finish, but I was exploring every area and taking lots of time to earn EXP. In most areas the monsters will only respawn a certain number of times so it's possible to clean out every area, but it's usually not necessary to do so to get through the level. I'd say an average player will need 4-5 hours.to get through all the levels.
Hard and Expert levels are challenging and I think it has a lot of replay value. You can create multiple starting characters and build them up, or just focus on maxing out one character. And levels and characters are loaded separately; the loaded level's difficulty and your character's abilities/equipment come from the loaded character. A very nice feature.

The game provides a fair variety of weapon types to support different play styles, though the "classes" in the game are really the same character over and over, with a few advance points into certain skills. For example, the Tanker starts with a few points into some melee skills, while the Firebug starts with some points into the flamethrower skill. The different "classes" also start with a slightly different point spread on vital statistics, such as strength and dexterity. You cannot be a male character, and no matter what you name yourself, the game will still lead you through the story mode as Aileen Harding.
The controls are straightforward and the graphics are pleasant enough, though there can be some slowdown depending on how many enemies are on the screen at once. The music is unobtrusive, and the sound effects are fitting. The voice acting is lifeless and overwrought, though the cinemas have an interesting aesthetic, sort of cardboard cutout painting animations. The story is unremarkable and fails to surprise or engage.
For what it is, a Diablo clone with sci-fi trimmings, it's a decent game. The price is right, and the gameplay can be picked up or put down without a lot of investment.Read more ›
