Full Review:

Although Ionized Games received a negative recommendation from the review, it was a close-run thing. If this team can increase it’s communication about the game, where it’s going and the milestones to get there, it could easily tip into a positive recommendation.

What’s your opinion? Do Ionized deserve a Positive recommendation based on their great community interaction, or should their lack of progress and information about what the final game will be override that?

  1. Can I just say thank you for starting something like this. As a person who is more a fan of the developers then sometimes the game themselves. Great to get a better look at how well they are actually doing.

    I played this game for a little bit, but found myself zoning out a lot and gettin bored. The word seemed interesting but I guess not playing with VR made it all appear rather dull.
