REAL RE­DUX

is an­other of­fi­cial Bol­ly­wood block­buster game from Re­liance Games quick on the heels of the hugely suc­cess­ful

RealS­teel fran­chise. Based on the Pa­cific Rim movie, this one lacks a story and is all about ac­tion. So your char­ac­ter gets to fight one mon­ster af­ter the other for 30 rounds.

The game starts with im­pres­sive graph­ics, though the ac­tual ac­tion scenes are a bit bor­ing and repet­i­tive. The move­ments of the ro­bot as well as the mon­ster, or Kaiju, kept re­mind­ing us of the RealS­teel fights and that is a damp­ener for any­one who has played the ear­lier game. The lack of scenes and spe­cial ef­fects is a con­stant re­minder that this is a 250 MB game that could not pack in much. How­ever, for ac­tion game buffs this game is a huge rush of adrenalin, while oth­ers won’t be able to play more a cou­ple of rounds at one go. You have all the usual blows and swipes as well as some great de­fen­sive moves. Ir­ri­tat­ingly, the game keeps prompt­ing you to parry when un­der at­tack. Maybe there are peo­ple who need that kind of hand­hold­ing, but I doubt if it works for those who paid so much to buy this game.

There are a bunch of in-app pur­chases you can opt for to kill the mon­sters quickly. But then this is al­ready a pricey game, es­pe­cially when con­sid­er­ing that it is not all that vis­ually stun­ning.

BAG IT OR JUNK IT: Pricey, can be repet­i­tive
