Loadout is, if anything, bombastic. In a developer market obsessed with waist high cover and tactical realism, it certainly isn’t a game that will appeal to everyone. It can be loud, crude, ridiculous, infuriating, and juvenile at the best of times. You’ll hear the shrill screams of your characters’ final throes and find yourself either laughing or shaking your head when they raise a bloody middle-fingered salute. You’ll see this sort of thing a lot, as survival is something of a luxury in a game teeming with so much frenetic commotion. Make no mistake, staving off the reaper for more than a minute is a grand feat when considering the arsenal of skin-searing murder weapons. So if you’re looking for a game that rewards patience, brimming with constant tension and sweeping maneuvers, then you’ll probably want to avoid the exasperation and take a pass here. However, if the words: “penta-barreled, laser-guided electric rocket launcher” fills your eyes with a childlike sparkle and curiosity, then maybe you should just download the game right now.
“Hell is empty. All the devils are here.”
