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.
Of course, if you’re coming to Tempest 4000, this is what you expect. It’s hard to critique a game that’s so set in its goals, so unwavering in its vision. Jeff Minter knows what this game is more than anyone else. It may not be for everyone, and that’s perfectly alright. He invites the player to dive in and see where it takes you. If you’re up for a challenge or an old-school nostalgia trip, there’s no better game to choose. Give your head to the web and see what happens.
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.
