A sub-Ma­trix voiceover (“the mo­ment you were born, you were trapped”) may not prom­ise great­ness, but if Ru­iner’s cy­ber­punk dystopia doesn’t seem to have any­thing new to say, its slick, bru­tal ac­tion is much more per­sua­sive. Katanas and guns pro­duce bloody re­sults in keep­ing with its anime-in­spired aes­thetic, while a stylish lat­eral dash lets you dodge in­com­ing at­tacks, briefly slow­ing your at­tack­ers. A shield, mean­while, dou­bles as a pro­tec­tive bar­rier and an of­fen­sive weapon to bull­doze groups of en­e­mies. With de­cent twin-stick shoot­ers thin on the ground nowa­days, Ru­iner has lit­tle trou­ble stand­ing out.
