Storm of the Impostorz – Latest ‘Perfect Storm’ Game
Storm of the Impostorz is a new game being developed by Bulletstorm developer iD Software. Unlike previous games released by the studio, this one doesn’t seem to be aiming for the casual gamer; it seems to be trying to push the envelope by expanding the core mechanics of the old games to create something new and exciting. A careful look at the plot makes it clear that it’s pretty much the same thing as most of the old games, but with an improved execution.
The game starts off with your character awakening in the hospital. He discovers that his son has been kidnapped, leading him to start searching for clues as to where he could have been taken. For my part, I was expecting more action. Of course, the story doesn’t become much more interesting than what we already know.
After rescuing your son from kidnappers, you are then directed to go to an airfield, where you meet Jason Stowell, the pilot that took your son. While there, you must fight through waves of enemies, including snipers and bombers, and protect your plane, called Icarus. After surviving numerous stages, you come across a certain scene that is reminiscent of the Ninja Turtles games.
Although, if you play the game just for the storyline, then you will be missing a lot of the game, it’s up to you whether you want to work through the game as fast as possible, or choose to spend your time on the game’s different gameplay aspects. By all means, do try your best not to miss the intro and ending scenes. This makes it a lot easier to pick up and continue playing after that. On the other hand, you will find that there are definitely better ways to experience the game.
There are also a lot of memorable characters, which make the game seem more like a movie rather than a video game. We see some familiar faces like Mr. Universe, but unlike the previous game, you don’t really know why he is in the game and what exactly he wants.
You will have to complete many stages and return to previous areas in order to finish the game. Depending on how fast you finish it, you can expect to enjoy the game well into the night. You could just keep on going for hours and end up getting bored or get frustrated by the game.
The other things you will need to know about the game are that there are a lot of distractions such as exploding objects, birds and bugs, and other unexpected things that can cause you to lose control of your plane. It’s advised that you use some sort of difficulty level switch to avoid these situations.
Overall, you should see that while it’s a good idea to play the game to get a feel for the controls, as long as you know the controls, the video game is fairly short. It’s recommended to play it while the action is still going on to prevent boredom.
