    I would rate this "honk", but comparing game journos to clowns would be outright insult against dedicated athletes and entertainers who usually are seen in circus.

    While this RPS reviewer is most certainly a plebeian and a scrub, this review may show some signs that Ion Fury is falling for a minor meme which I fear seems to be taking hold lately, namely that good FPS level design is being automatically equated to giant interconnected Souls-ian behemoths of a level filled with tons of exploration-bait, secrets, and what have you. It's something that seemed to have started with some of the giga-levels in Quake: Arcane Dimensions like The Forgotten Sepulcher which everyone agreed was good without really being able to put it in words other than "because it made my peepee hard". Now you have Ion Fury with "zones" instead of levels and Wrath promising to do the same thing.

    This is by no means a condemnation of AD or Ion Fury or giga-levels in general, but I fear that if we mindlessly assign pseudo-Metroidvania worlds as the golden standard of FPS level design for what they set out to do rather than the qualities that make their scope work, that we'll have morons complaining about short 'n sweet Scythe-like levels for being too small, and developers trying to follow this fad but only end up overstretching themselves by creating overly huge levels with too many secrets and pointless side-areas with tons of unnecessary backtracking.

    So Iron Maiden DID take issue with this game? Fucking lol @ the reason behind the name change. Bunch of old faggots.

    Anyway, full release isn't out yet, but is it worth it? No more 10% discount it seems.

    Calling it "probably the best Build engine game ever" is overshooting a bit, no, PCGamesN?

    Unless they added new amazing weapons and / or the level designs are dramatically better in terms of layouts and atmosphere, compared to the Early Access preview campaign, this thing has a long way to go until it catches up with Blood 1.

    I'm afraid ALL of shillmanlives's criticisms are very valid, given what I've seen in the early access and what I see in the gameplay and his examples.

    Disclaimer: I've bought the game and I am rooting for it to be a success, I just can't deny obvious flaws when I see them.

    Such a shame they couldn't just make a new Duke Nukem game. One liners from this chick seem cringe inducing.

    There's a setting in the menu that allows you to mute her entirely. And thank god because her repertoire is limited and she spews them out a lot more often than Duke did.

    Yeah I also mostly agree with Shillman in this video too. It's just more fun to call him a shill.

    Honestly can't help but be severely disappointed with the fact that there are no more weapons from Early Access to final game other than the disc explosive that was shown in the final trailer (especially when bowling bombs are supposed to be the "signature" throwable weapon). Kind of reminiscent of an issue I had with DUSK where you basically get all of your weapons within the first episode and have the same ones for the rest of the game (though at least DUSK had power-ups, not sure about Fury other than that temporary unlimited bowling bomb one).

    Abit disappointed to hear about the weapons... I guess they went with more convertional weapons, but as shillman says, it would have been tasteful to include some zanzy weapons in the style of the 90s fpss

    I just hope that someone manages to mod in a "Lo Wang" sound mod soon enough. Playing these kind of games without any or with really really shitty one-liners is kinda unfaithful to the Build Engine era.

    Boring weapon arsenal, monotonous progression, so-so level design, chronic ammo shortage (my main complaint from the EA version).

    Not sure of this is enough for Ion Fury to enhance the must-have Build-Engine trio into a quartet.
