The Club - hands-on

Sega's super-sharp shooter

Where Bizarre’s Project Gotham had you driving with style through its Kudos system, The Club takes a similar approach, only this time, replacing drifts around corners with consistently accurate killings. Forget a story, romance or any world-threatening catastrophe, this is all about taking your controls in hand and using them to show how much skill you have at stylish slaughter. The very tight controls and take-it-in-turns high scoring addictiveness makes this a real breath of fresh air. Unlike your usual story-driven shooters, there’s a distinct arcade feel to it all: big chunky numbers and score bonuses popping up all over the place, with a constant sense of urgency keeping you well and truly on your toes.
