Under rating threshold (show) I just can't rate this well when the player can be punished by picking up power ups. The number of times I've lost in Survival due to losing my rockets from picking up a flamethrower is painful, and I'm sure others have had the same thing happen repeatedly.

Under rating threshold (show) Its pretty shit that you have wade through all those people, kill a boss then have to go right back to the start because your pilot is a lazy dickhead who can't be bothered to pick you up from an area you just cleared of ALL troops.

Under rating threshold (show) you walk into a wide area where suddenly turrets come out of the ground all around you. do you: A. retreat a bit and fire at them from behind cover, or B. run into the middle of them and let them all shoot you at the same time. why does this guy always pick option B?

Under rating threshold (show) When going for a gold star on time, you want to pick up a R and an M as soon as possible. those will let you kill bosses and sub-bosses in a matter of seconds. also, it's better to get hurt then find health than to avoid damage and be slow. Start killing the boss as soon as he appears, and don't worry about the supporting turrets. In sub-boss areas the turrets must be killed to proceed, so find the most efficient way to kill them all. When going for kills, make sure to explore every area. When going for damage, Homing missile works the best, as it kills enemies as soon as they enter the screen. Try to go slowly and kill enemies 1 at a time as they appear. In sub boss and boss areas, kill the supporting turrets then the boss, while avoiding taking damage.

Under rating threshold (show) Wow, something really weird just happened. While trying to get the 100% kill percentage on Mission 1, I ran out of time. But I somehow managed to get onto the airplane whilst my commando got destroyed. First the 'game over'-window popped up, but the 'victory'-window followed shortly afterwards. And I got the gold star. Freaking awesome.

Under rating threshold (show) guys... don't think that when you have 15 gold medals, the hard/impossible badge is a piece of cake... because getting 15 gold medals is a lot easier than surviving 15 or 20 waves. the 15 gold medals only gives you +50 armor... which barely helps.

Under rating threshold (show) The frustrating thing is that even if you DO beat the wave with four tanks, the next wave starts out difficult because you can't see half your screen, because the tanks are still exploding!! This in addition to the OP difficulty of that wave, and the bad pickups ruining your run...

Under rating threshold (show) No map. Controls freeze sporadically. Can't explore and retreat in all locations. No documentation on effects of weapon types. In second mission, I get a surprise that "energy level" is a resource of some sort. So much for the overall user experience.

Under rating threshold (show) First level needs to be much easier so people can get acquainted to the game. There's no real point where you can get a feel for it. It just kind of dumps you into it, and it's difficult for players that aren't good at this kind of game. There should have been difficulty settings to make the game more fun for a wider base of players. It's also pretty annoying that there's no way back to the menu once you start a level. If you get lost and know you won't have enough time to escape you have to stand there waiting to die or refresh.

Under rating threshold (show) First level's time limit is just a hint on the actual nature of your commander. Of course he's giving you a hard time, making you run back, cause he wants you dead. Main issue I have with this game is the fact that the impossible badge requires you surviving a bullet hell with no defense, no recovery, weapons that are just not suited for a large mass of enemies on all sides, and a hit box that's bigger than your Mech. That's not how Bullet Hell matches work.

Under rating threshold (show) This game is just a laundry list of bad ideas. Weak weaponry, enemy shots having *unlimited* range, never any idea of where to go, hidden enemies everywhere, super-easy to take damage, difficult to aim since you're constantly moving and firing (Decision did this *much* better), no real use for the mortar, and, oh yeah, having to backtrack *all the way* (with no map) is no fun at all. Is this really the same group that made Frantic Frigates? What the hell happened?? 1/5

Under rating threshold (show) It's not often that I give up on badge of the day, but this is a fine example of buggy gaming. The dev should listen to the feedback that everyone has been giving - The powerup system is faulty, the 'cover' only serves to obstruct the player, meaning the screen is filled with bullets from enemies that are off the screen, and the popups in the bottom corner often obstruct the players vision and have caused my death on more than one occasion. Better luck with future projects, this one should be put down to experience and moved away from.

Under rating threshold (show) Fail minus is this game's grade~ yep sorry but it just is lacking mapping, hold space for auto mortar, upgrades to be bought with money instead of having to replay the same 10 minute level over and over to get a single gold star, and finally a NOT LAZY PILOT (lol every time I kill the boss he says that he won't stay anymore as if its just to piss me off)

Under rating threshold (show) As everyone else already says, the cover is shitty and is only used to restrict my movement. It pisses me off that I can physically SEE foot soldiers jumping the walls to get close to me. Need I mention the HORRIBLE weapon drops? I had the weapon choice I believed was good and while advancing, killing foot soldiers, I picked up a shitty 'G'. Also, the mortar is shit. It does radius damage strong enough to get an exact kill on a foot soldier. The mortar should be limited and capable of destroying whatever is in its path.
