Fashion Police Squad Has the Style, But Lacks the Substance


Fashion Police Squad is the newest within the boomer shooter craze, however whereas different video games go for the darkish and gritty, this recreation goes for glitz and style. A recreation that totally commits to its tone and aesthetics, I simply want the outfit was simply as purposeful as it’s trendy.

Style Shooter

You play as an officer of the style police, when dangerous style developments seem it’s as much as you to make issues trendy. Everything in regards to the recreation’s aesthetic helps Fashion Police Squad stand out — areas are shiny, colourful, and you’ve got a narrator who says trendy phrases after each battle.

While this recreation might look retro, its main inspiration is oddly sufficient Doom Eternal. Every enemy is a style prison with one thing mistaken with their garments, surprisingly there aren’t any “white after Labor Day” crimes within the metropolis. To cope with every style catastrophe, you have to use one in all 5 completely different weapons. Each weapon handles a selected sort of enemy, with some enemies requiring a number of weapons to cope with them in several levels. All the weapons deal with properly with a number of having a secondary assault to offer them extra choices. You even have a belt that you should utilize to stun, assault, and even grapple across the areas with, and your “fab glove” that acts as an excellent assault as soon as totally charged.

The ranges comply with the identical sort of construction of Doom Eternal with sections that target fight in arenas and people about platforming round. You may also discover secret style posters and acquire gadgets. The number of content material with boss fights and non-shooting sections does assist the sport because the common ranges do begin to really feel repetitive.

The allure is definitely on full show, however Fashion Police Squad can’t fairly stick the touchdown with regards to the top.

A Difficulty Don’t

While I did play the sport on the toughest issue, that didn’t change the truth that the sport’s design result in some issue spikes as you enter the again half. Bosses and enemies are good at monitoring the participant and your base velocity is commonly not sufficient to get out of the best way of sure assaults. One of your weapons does permit you a velocity enhance whereas aiming it on the floor, however that’s not at all times possible because of the design of the encounters. Most enemies assault by a bodily projectile you possibly can dodge, however there have been two that used hit scan assaults that had been virtually close to inconceivable to dodge their precise assault in some areas.

Due to the enemies being designed round particular counters, for those who attempt to assault one with a weapon apart from their weak spot, they are going to simply shrug it off. This is completely different from Doom Eternal the place although enemies had their weapon weaknesses, they might nonetheless be harm by something. Here, it felt a bit repetitive to method each encounter with out a whole lot of flexibility in ways. Besides the secondary capabilities, your weapons don’t achieve any sort of customization or extra talents. The recreation actually leans into small rooms for its arenas within the remaining quarter, which makes it even tougher to correctly dodge and hit enemies. There had been a number of conditions the place I used to be attacked by an enemy getting into a small space with none warning or means to get out of the best way because of the restricted space. The enemies are likely to bunch up and for those who’re making an attempt to particularly goal an annoying one, it’s greater than probably their buddies are going to get in the best way and block these pictures.

To the sport’s credit score, they do introduce new parts and enemies all the best way to the ultimate stage, however the allure began to wear down by the ultimate two levels and the very lengthy remaining boss battle.

Stylish Shooting

Fashion Police Squad proves you can make an excellent FPS with out the usage of demons, blood, and varied shades of browns and greys. While I wouldn’t rank it as excessive as Doom Eternal or Ultrakill, it’s an excellent first recreation and idea for hopefully extra seasons of trendy taking pictures sooner or later.
