So down to basics you venture around through timed levels destroying and collecting multiple things trying to create the highest possible score. Fun?, very much so. The game does have somewhat of a story shown through small cinematics. The games campaign is split into four main areas that are unlocked as you play within the previous ones. Each area has a distinct environment for you to destroy the glowing orbs and catch floating items. Oh ya, also to destroy the enemies on the level in order to pass it. I will say at times that the enemies are hard to locate, despite having a bit of a indicator on your guns sight. All the levels are really neat and differ in style required to make it through. There are I would say bonus levels where you wreak as much mayhem as you can in a set time. Those levels are quite fun to do, as you don’t have to worry about any foes. In the level, there are many items that you can shoot, but the main goal is to create large point chains to boost your score, where time, chain and style comes into effect. Your stats for each level are rated and then compared to others all over which makes it slightly more competitive. After checking your position, each level awards XP for which you level up your characters stats to well make it more powerful.
Graphical wise the game feels slightly old, but that it is well made up for with the stellar feel of the game. It is neat having a variety of weapons and upgrades that assist in your mad point collection. The game does feel like some sort of “magical” trip!
Xotic is like I said “quite magical” with a truly unique first person shooter experience. It is a blast running around shooting the orbs and hopping to collect the floating item for tons of score, while racing to get the time bonus. It's even more fun going back and trying to better yourself and come up with new ways to get the level done.
