Review

When the polar ice caps are melting and nobody cares, because the big wigs and media are feeding them false information, a disaster occurs. That disaster? Hemasaurus is unfrozen and is sent on a crazy adventure throughout the land to destroy the land and make people realize that anything can happen! But what is Hemasaurus really after?

I was not expecting the story nor the dialogue that was presented in this. I expected just a silly little experience with some fun gameplay that rivals Rampage, but that story made me laugh so much, especially when the dev wrote himself into the game. There’s jokes galore about the situations of reality, or how the media really spins stuff to fit their narrative, or even how big corporations have a hand with a great many things!

I know most people don’t want politics in their video games, but it was all such a perfect parody on everything that I immediately fell in love. Especially when it comes to how parents never care to look into the games that they buy for their children. Oh it was so amazingly perfect, the developer just did such an amazing job.

If you’ve ever played Rampage, you’ll feel right at home here. You play as a cute little dinosaur and you cause havoc and destruction and death across many cities. I absolutely loved it, especially in story mode, when each level had its own set of objectives to do to clear it. I mean, most of the time, you just had to cause mayhem, but sometimes you’d have to cause mayhem to only the red houses. Or on the strangest level, you had to snuggle cats and dogs! It was all hilarious.

Unfortunately there are only so many moves you get to do that causes destruction when it comes to buildings. You climb them and punch them, unless of course the building is nice and big, then you can jump off of it and butt slam to make it collapse. Now if cars come along, you can kick them into the buildings to break them faster, but without those, there’s no good way to down them fast. You can use an ultimate ability that lets you roar and break stuff, but all that does is push enemies away and barely break the buildings. It sucked. Now when you unlock the ability to use a cheat to use a UFO? Well that’s a different story.

Aside from the story, all you have the ability to do is Endless Destruction mode. This mode was honestly boring. Sure you get more cheats for clearing a collective of 100 levels, but other than that, there’s no variety in the levels. It’s just about causing destruction, and winning. Even with a friend I didn’t have fun. Now maybe if I had four friends for a full couch co-op experience it may have been different, but I’m gonna say it wouldn’t have been. As you complete challenges though in game, you get more cheats for Endless Mode, like spawning enemies and vehicles, but again, it wasn’t all that exciting.

Rating

Rating: 8 out of 10.

Pros:

  • Great Writing
  • Fun Gameplay

Cons:

  • Endless Mode Is Boring
  • Not Many Ways To Cause Mayhem Without Outside Sources

Summary

For any fans of Rampage, or just causing mayhem, I highly recommend this game. It’s fun, it’s exciting, and the story is fantastically written. It’s just a shame that outside of the story, I had no fun. But it’s still a purchase worth making!’
