Severed Steel is an incredibly intense run ‘n gun FPS where you get in brutal slow-mo gunfights, blow holes in walls and use stunts to avoid gunfire.
In Severed Steel you take control of a badass one-armed protagonist who uses bullet-time and stunts to dodge bullets and take out an army of bad guys in fully destructible environments. The gameplay is fast and incredibly brutal, feeling like you’ve stepped into an action movie that’s channeling John Wick and The Matrix.
The current build of Severed Steel features six levels to blast your way through, with the goal being to eliminate all the enemies in each one. There are also a variety of cool unlockables, including things like big head mode and an awesome arm cannon that can be used to blast through walls and floors.
In each level you’re severely outnumbered and outgunned, but stunts like sliding, wall-running and jumping through windows make you temporarily invulnerable to gunfire, so if you know what you’re doing you’ll spend very little time running around normally. Also, you can activate bullet-time by using the right mouse button, giving you time to make those all important head-shots.
It really is a huge amount of fun, with adrenaline-fuelled and action packed gun-fights where you can’t stop until you’re the last one standing. The guns feel great, it has some very satisfying head-shots and the amount of on-screen carnage and environmental destruction is incredible. It’s the sort of game that you have to take a break from now and again to remind yourself to breathe! Highly recommended.
