Review: ShootMania Storm
by Patrick Hancock

Nadeo has already made a name for itself with its Trackmania racing series for PC. Quick and sometimes crazy user-created courses task the player with getting the best lap time, making for a pure gameplay experience which can be hard to put down. The company is now trying to introduce some similar concepts into the first-person shooter genre with Shootmania Storm.

Shootmania is certainly a simple game, at least on the surface. At a glance, it may remind some players of Quake due to its fast-paced action and feel, but don't be fooled: this is definitely a game all its own. One that really deserves your attention.

The contemporary online first-person shooter has a well-established formula at this stage in the genre's history. Start a match, shoot stuff, gain XP, unlock stuff, rinse, and repeat. It is a formula that has worked well for the titans of the FPS scene, but made it hard for a new IP to stand out when their multilayer offerings look too familiar.

ShootMania Storm, then, aims to find its footing by turning the clock backwards, removing any and all semblance of a progressive upgrade system, and shifting focus purely on tight, reflex-heavy twitch shooting. So far, I say, so good. ShootMania's stripped-down approach to the genre works in the best way possible.
