Tempest 4000’s price-tag is wildly unforgivable when you factor in the meager content that you’re getting in return. This is greed at its absolute finest and despite the series’ fame for being colorful and fast-paced, which indeed the game is, there’s just not enough content within to justify its cost. Easy to get into and nostalgic Tempest 4000 may be, but it ultimately becomes bland and uninteresting quite quickly.
Tempest 4000 then, is a great game. But if you want it, you’re going to have to part with more cash than you probably expected to. Whether its worth the asking price is up to you to decide, but I can assert with certainty that it’s an absolute joy to play. Bringing an old classic up to date, it proves that the simple things in life are often the best.
Tempest 4000 is another Tempest game. If you are OK with that and perhaps need an excuse to retire the Vita version, then this package will be worth it. Otherwise this game feels like a relic that didn’t really need the 4K upgrade.
