Quoted from shaub:
The game lacks depth and, probably more importantly, the Pro lacks an upper playfield
I want to find and play a Pro just out of curiosity, but having a new Prem, I can't imagine the game without the upper playfield. Sure the upper playfield lacks some inspiration, but it's funner than I thought it would be, and the ability to use the upper light lock target in the beast battles is a welcome benefit. I would think the Pro is considerably harder, both because you don't get the respite of the upper playfield time, and you can only damage the beasts on the dangerous lower playfield.
I get that the game lacks depth, but that's part of what I like about it. I have enough deep games; this is a welcome change. I love all of Elwin's games, but BK is just pure adrenalin, and I walk away from it every time saying to myself how freaking fun it is. Games are fast-paced and short. I usually find super drainy games frustrating, but for some reason this one doesn't get under my skin. Just makes me hit the start button again.
The BK music was always cool, but the metal version is awesome! I love the callouts too - EXCEPT for the stupid Butcher line after a skill shot. God I hate that callout. It makes me want to avoid the skillshot. Everything else in the game is either serious or menacing, why throw some dopey line like that in the middle? Stupid. I wish I could get rid of that one.
Anyway, obviously there are *better* games. I own many games that I would say are technically better than this. But the only other game that I have this much outright FUN with is Deadpool. So glad a took a flyer on this game.
