Despite my complaints about unclear storytelling and frustrating difficulty, I enjoyed my time with Sine Mora EX. For shoot-em-up fans the game has plenty of replayability and a ton of optional modes and challenges to play around with. Though the campaign itself is only three or four hours long at most, it’s jam-packed with a ton of gargantuan steampunk bosses with unique attack patterns and weaknesses. Each level offers a glimpse of the world as a whole, and having the same stage show up at different points in time is a great way to showcase destruction and decay. Unfortunately, Sine Mora EX has a few too many problems to recommend to anyone who isn’t already in too deep in the genre.
Solid and definitely has an audience. There could be some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.
The key upgrade in this department is a visual bump for the current generation, and for those with a PS4 Pro (the version tested) or a PC with the necessary oomph, it’ll put out a lovely 4K image, mostly displaying at 60fps. There was only one noticeable drop during my time with the game, where a large amount of the scenery was collapsing, but otherwise the game is silky smooth. Just what you need when you’re faced with a screen full of brightly coloured bullets.
