Gamespot’s Otto Kratky ventured across the fallen city of Paradise in their review of the DOOM-esque Turbo Overkill. The hyper-fast-paced first-person shooter by Apogee Entertainment, out now on Steam Early Access, is dark and gritty, paying homage to the early days of FPS. Although this action-packed retro-style shooter carries an old aesthetic, it has been refined to feel modern and unhitched by old-school mechanics.
Turbo Overkill is the textbook definition of an indie game that’s been polished to a reflective shine. Its detailed, neon-drenched cyberpunk city is a gorgeous setting and its OST is packed with tracks that anyone could mosh to. But, even amongst numerous similarly polished indie games at PAX East, Turbo Overkill managed to stand by being stupidly badass and ridiculously fast.
The end result of Sam’s experimenting and excessive need for speed is a first-person shooter that simply doesn’t take its foot off the gas. Levels in Turbo Overkill are like levels in any other retro shooter, but faster and larger. Cybernetically disfigured enemies swarm the player, begging to be blasted away or turned to mincemeat with a single chainsaw-driven slide across the ground.
