Sometimes gamers want an epic saga with a deep story, branching plots, and rich character development -- and other times, they just want to blow things up. Fury Unleashed is catered more towards the latter crowd, with an old school run and gun gameplay that's mixed with a healthy dose of light platforming and dungeon crawling elements. The comic book setting of Fury Unleashed makes for interesting use of procedurally generated maps, as each playthrough generates a new layout of panels to navigate to keep things feeling fresh. This helps to alleviate some of the repetition the game suffers from, especially in the earlier stages before players get a chance to beef up their character.

Players dive into the action with some basic weapons and abilities at the start. They can expect to die early on, especially on anything beyond the Easy difficulty. This isn't such a bad thing, though, as players constantly earn experience in the form of "ink," which they keep from life to life. By constantly upgrading before starting a new game, players get access to things like extra health, more powerful weapons, and extra abilities that help to make the battles easier each time. Of course, the drawback to this is that by the time players get to the later stages of the game, odds are good that their character has bulked up enough to breeze through most challenges with ease. In spite of this, Fury Unleashed is still a great little chunk of gun blazing fun worth checking out.
