So I spent a little time with Ion Fury today. I'm quite impressed so far. It's a cyberpunk dystopia aesthetic that actually manages to do its own thing with the Build Engine, so it doesn't just feel like "Duke Nukem, but X" like the other two Build Engine games of note. Level design is top notch; they're big, have interesting gizmos, and they aren't afraid to wind back on themselves. Enemies feel pretty balanced so far, though you do have to pay attention to a few of them which have very high damage outputs. They are also the ones with slow firing and moving shots, so we aren't in a Blood situation where you don't get a chance to avoid the big damage.

I'm about two hours into it myself and seriously impressed.

To be frank, I always fall off of Shadow Warrior a few levels in because the level design is so annoying (figuring out what dinky under the desk switch I need to find and crap). And Blood has never clicked with me at all yet either. Both are full of crazy hitscanning as well.

I love Duke3D, but the levels can be a mixed bag a times.

So... nostalgia aside, Ion Fury might be even better than the Build classics. I'm really loving the aesthetic and tracker music choice so far. It's almost like, if Deus Ex had a Dark Forces era prequel that was more action heavy.
