Unfortunately for every one of those, there are the titles that could have used more fleshing out. Atomic Ninjas goes the route of the multiplayer brawler – a multi-leveled frantic experience not too dissimilar to a good game of Super Smash Brothers. The visuals are simple yet grab the eye – bright popping colors and frantic action meant to suck you right in. The problem is that when you get there, you get the feeling that you arrived a little too early to the party.
Lacking any sort of a single player campaign or challenge mode, Atomic Ninjas offers mulitplayer modes. Therein lies the problem, unless you have three friends on stand-by to play… you are SCREWED. The online community is non-existant, I was unable on five separate occasions to find ANY online game and never even had someone join my created game either.
I tried playing with one other person and some bots and was treated to a gaming experience that I will liken to having a bag thrown over my head, dragged into the back of a van, and beaten to within an inch of my life.
The end result is…
Atomic Ninjas is just missing so much it is unplayable in this current format. Without a better multiplayer system or community it's DOA. Without a single player mode, you effectively have a really shiny time waste. Hopefully a patch can save the core concept of this title, but right now, I'd say spend your money elsewhere.
- Cute art design
- A multiplayer game with no online community… wooo…..
