All Guns Blazing
Who hasn't thought being a drug boss would be great? All Guns Blazing lets you take control of being a crime lord and run your own seedy cartel as they spread their influence.
All Guns Blazing is a shooter, in which you are starting up a new crime syndicate with the intent of expanding across the United States, taking down all others that oppose you. As the name implies, All Guns Blazing is a shoot first ask questions later type of game. You are thrust into battle in each mission and your job is to kill anyone who gets in your way. The gameplay is similar to old arcade shooters, in which you are always behind cover, until you start shooting. You can outfit your character with a bunch of different guns or explosives. Your character development is based on an RPG level system and you can increase your health, earning power, and other things when you level up. You main reason for all of the killing and getting money is to develop your cartel and build up bases, banks, and other locations around the United States. The buildings you put around the world also affect your money and weapons.
All Guns Blazing has a few different in game currencies that are used to purchase weapons, upgrades, and building up your empire. You earn the in-game currency through the completion of missions. The in-game currency runs out fairly quickly with all of the purchase it takes to build an empire. The game pushes the purchase of more in-game currency with the use of real money, otherwise building up your empire will be that much more difficult. The game can be a little repetitive with its point and shoot gameplay. The game doesn't do much to switch up that gameplay. In all of the missions, you are killing enemies for a certain amount of time or with a certain amount of destruction amassed, but you are mostly mindless shooting at enemies.
All Guns Blazing is a fun shooter in short bursts. The gameplay gets a bit repetitive with each play through, but if played in moderation it can be a pretty fun time building up your cartel.
