I like the graphics, what with the cel shading and the environments look nice. Unfortunately, after several hours with the game, I think I’ve seen every asset RICO is capable of showing me.
RICO is simple, moreish fun in arcade FPS form; a literal corridor shooter that makes every gunfight a glorious exchange of bullets as you fight your way to the words ‘Room cleared’ over and over again. It’s great fun in single-player, but when you head into each randomised set of rooms in co-op, you’ll shoot your way into an interactive buddy cop movie right there in the palm of your hands.
I found myself pleasantly surprised by RICO, and see myself coming back to it for weeks to come. If you’re a fan of either the Borderlands or Payday series, this game is a must try for you. My biggest request for the developers going forward is that it just keeps getting continued support… I think free updates or downloadable content would suit this game well – whether it be new weapon skins, characters, traits, or even skins for characters, I’d be pleased.
