BlowOut is a pick-up-play, run and gun, combat game that takes players to a whole new level of side-scrolling action. Mixing an intense shooter with manic game play, gamers are immersed into a dark and threatening environment where it's either kill or be killed.

Overall: While this game isn't quite as fun as any of mine, it is a worthwhile experience, especially at the budget price point. If you're a fan of this kind of shooter, you owe yourself at least a rental. It's lamentable that there's no co-op, as Lance and I had to keep switching the controller back and forth between levels. And the level designer that was rumored to be attached to this game would have been a joy to mess around with. As it stands, though, Blowout is better than we thought it would be, and definitely worth a once-through. Gameplay: It's a bit repetitive, but if you like killing lots and lots of aliens (and who doesn't?), this one is worth at least a rent. Why isn't there two player cooperative? Graphics: This doesn't necessarily look like a next-gen game, except for the lighting. Weird animations and unimaginative creature design. Sound: Standard sound effects mix with some mildly humorous voice work. Weapons sound good. Not fancy and not horrible. Suggestions: was there not supposed to be a level creator?!?! bah! put it in
