The game is based and rewarded on killing

The club is an exceptional game where you can just run round shooting everything and everyone. First off the game is based on violence. Gang violence basically. Killing pointlessly is the aim of the game which isn't appropiate for children.. The language is only bad when witnessed online with friends and others. The messages are very very negative. Basically saying that killing is an every day thing and you do not get punished. Never give this to immature people.

Is It Any Good?

Levels feel intense, since you're sprinting through an area attempting to build up combos for a higher score. But the action lacks explosiveness. You can shoot barrels for a strong blast, but the action is heavy on the gunplay. A cohesive story is non-existent. Beyond very brief character stories, players get little sense of what The Club is and who the characters are.

Game levels offer a solid variety of challenges, including Survivor and Run the Gauntlet. Racing elements are sprinkled throughout. The tournaments feel like a circuit you'd find in standard racing titles. One particular game type requires you to run laps around a level before time expires. Enemies pose a strong challenge, although you'll find quite a few who prefer to run right at you as an easy target and then find cover. Once the tournament has been conquered, players have an option to tackle single events, create their own tournaments, or partake in multiplayer action both offline and online. Despite a few flaws, The Club's unique concept and frenetic, arcade-style action offers plenty of incentive to join.
