This game is so much fun that you’ll forget that you really are doing the same thing again and again. This is mitigated by the fact you change characters several times, each with different weapons, and the quasi-RPG upgrade and experience system that keeps things a little different throughout. Undoubtedly, many people will skip Shadowgrounds Survivor, regardless of its budget price. However, while the game has got a boring story, it’s so unbelievably enjoyable, so fluid to control and so chillingly good-looking that you’ll forget all that. Shadowgrounds Survivor is truly a visceral, retro experience that takes us back to a warmer, happier time.
