Pong review

Pong is the game that defined videogames decades ago. When the game was made I wasn't even born and the incredible soundtrack and story still stands strong. One cannot help but think that the gameplay might be a bit outdated. If it wasn't for the fantastic beep-beep soundtrack and the well done voiceacting the game would just be too repetitive. This game does have a variety of game modes such as "one player" and "two players", where the last lets you face a friend on the battlefield. You start off as a young dot in a small village where you and your brothers are helping your mother just getting by day by day. Your father died in the civil war ten years ago and you are now seeking revenge on two large walls who murdered your father. After a few minutes of cinematics you find yourself getting your ass kicked by those very same walls your father faced. It soon turns out that you are just a pawn in a much larger plot and you get to take control of one of the walls that works for the government (who killed your father). I won't delve too much into the story at this point since there are quite a few spoilers up ahead. Let me instead focus a bit on gameplay. When you're starting off as a dot you can't really control anything. You're just watching yourself as a young dot getting smacked back and forth by the walls working for the government. It is only when they reveal themselves as the murderers that you get to control them. Now you're smacking the dot around. The dot is now grown up and has gotten his horse and an epic battle begins. Again there's just too much going on for me to explain at this point so I'll wrap this up with a conclusion: Play pong. I give it a solid 9.9 - The only thing lacking from this gem is online play.
