Fans of classic shooters will enjoy this one, especially if you were a fan of Descent. It's a hugely different experience from games released today in a tight bundle with lots to offer.

Overload harks back to simpler times in gaming and executes its brief perfectly. Billed as a spiritual successor to Descent it delivers to those fans in spades. Those too young to remember it though may find themselves wondering what all the hype is about.

Spiritual successor of classic Descent is good game not only for Old-school fans.

Overload might just be the greatest six degrees of freedom game yet with its tight and intuitive controls and gorgeous presentation.

Beautiful combat livens up Overload's tedious levels.

Overload, as an heir of arcade games, inherits its qualities and its flaws. It's a pure exponent of fun and has a visual component that creates magnificent frames, but doesn't have enough content to support its great mechanics in long term, making an imbalance between its role as an experience and its role as a product.

While I doubt it will have any trouble bringing in loyal followers, Overload might find it more difficult to attract new blood.
