A handsome port of one of the best team shooters of our time, if not necessarily the best place to play it.

  • Still the original and best hero shooter
  • Well suited to handheld play and gyro controls
  • Supports in-game voice chat and bypasses Nintendo’s other annoying restrictions
  • 30fps framerate not ideal for a shooter
4 / 5
Version tested
