    If I knew this was what I was going to get I would have just stayed home.

    This game tries to be a good side scrolling game but it dosen't even come close to accomplishing that. The game starts out with no story in a dark bland level with a bunch of dead ends, elevators, and...

    Contra with 3D graphics and dual-stick control.

    Rated on December 08, 2009 by Skinr

    I don't know why everyone hates this game. It's certainly not a 1.0 out of 10. The best way I can describe it is as having the action gameplay of Contra (aiming in all directions, getting different ...

    I have to say it's fun and made me keep going back but where's my reward?

    Rated on March 25, 2010 by veganintendo

    I found this game for less than $2, it's hard not to buy it even if to prove you $2 wrong. I was surprised with it. My first reaction was not really great, it felt very simplistic, and it actually is ...

    if you like 2D games....

    Rated on December 27, 2006 by political

    I bought this game for $5...and that's about what it's worth. This is a simple 2D game that's maybe fun for the first hour to 2, then it's just repetative and rather annoying. Basically, this game is ...

    Rated on April 19, 2006 by ANTICAN

    Ten seconds into this game and I hated it. The graphics were crap, the controls were crap, the story was crap...the game was and is just crap. One of the major problems is a large gap between save poi...

    This is a waste of money.

    Rated on June 27, 2007 by unbiasgamer

    Blowout is such a mediocre game it is not even worth $3. The gameplay consists of 10 levels that take place on an abandoned space station. The environments are reused and consist of a blue sector, ...
