3.. 2.. 1.. Grenades! Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on 3.. 2.. 1.. Grenades! By Banyango. I received a copy of the game for review purposes but like all of my reviews, this has no effect on my thoughts and experiences with the game.
3.. 2.. 1.. Grenades! Is a family friendly first person shooter where your only weapons are various types of grenades. At first, this sounds like it wouldn’t really work but the game is quite a lot of fun even with the limited weapon choice.
The way the game is set up it reminds me of a wide range of N64 games that I used to play when I was younger. The combat reminds me of Goldeneye, the story mode is similar in style to Super Mario 64 and the music sounds a lot like Mario Kart or Diddy Kong Racing. It’s a smorgasbord of various types of games and it’s quite a bit of fun.
The story mode takes you through various rooms around Grenade Co. A giant monster has been let lose and it’s up to you to make your way through the various areas and ultimately defeat the monster. Much like Super Mario 64, you have locked doors which require you to obtain a specific number of golden grenades (This game’s stars). You obtain golden grenades by completing each area’s objectives. Any area you unlock can also be played in multiplayer as well.
The game’s multiplayer is 4 player local so there’s no online mode here. The multiplayer mode is a lot of fun as well and you play in a split screen setup, just like the old days. There are a bunch of different game modes you can choose from for multiplayer as well including deathmatch, fallball, tennis, capture the pug, paintball and target practice. There are also 30+ modifiers which can alter the game as well and these include low gravity (A favorite of mine), turbo mode, super size explosions, single bounce, bullseyes only, and no jump to name a couple of them. If you have no friends to play with at the time the game features bots that you can go up against.
In the end, I’ve found 3.. 2.. 1.. Grenades! To be quite the entertaining game. It harkens back to the games that I used to play as a kid and it’s a very nostalgic experience. I happily recommend giving it a shot, especially if your group of friends are looking for something new and enjoyable to play in a local multiplayer setup. It’s also family friendly so kids can play the game as well.
Thanks a lot for taking the time to read the review folks and I’ll be back with my next review soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
