Fans of the “good old days” of FPS shooting will no doubt raise an eyebrow seeing shots of Exodemon. Running down pixellated halls and killing things always brings out a nostalgic thrill… at least for a little while. The thing is, Exodemon has quite a bit of company where the limitations of that retro style fail to deliver much in the way of longevity unless you’re content to stay in Nostalgiaville for a while. The first time you hit a first-person jumping section you’ll wince a bit, when the level layouts can seem a bit uninteresting you’ll nod in understanding, and when the familiarity of the weapons sets in with nothing terribly new it turns into more of a grind than anything. It’s not necessarily a bad game, you’ll just want to be sure you’re down to put hours into what would have just been a middling FPS shooter from the classic era.
