As a self-proclaimed super-fan of twin-stick shooters any title that looks like it could scratch that itch is immediately of interest. In the case of Delta Squad that enthusiasm unfortunately left pretty quickly. Your goal is to save the world, blah blah, and in order to do that you’ll need to work your way through meandering and non-descript levels shooting zombies, foot soldiers, heavy guns, and more. You’ll have the choice of which unit type you’ll be working with, though while they do differ none of them will help the game get any more exciting and rewarding. For a twin-stick shooter the enemies are not plentiful and the action is lacking. Your biggest challenges will often be to stationary guns that hit hard, and are often arranged near each other to complicate matters. The thing is, the experience is all stick and no carrot. If there were a clear gameplay pot of gold at the end of the somewhat clunky rainbow that is playing this game it could be worth sticking it out… but there just isn’t. Given the competition in this space at all price points this Delta Squad is only suitable for cannon fodder.
