Ubisoft has a lot to prove with its "what if" story of an evil George Washington. The first episode wasn't nearly as enthralling as Ubisoft had promised, mostly due to the fact that it felt like a lot was held back in favor of splitting it into three parts. The second portion, titled The Betrayal, in some ways, is a step forward -- a very, very small step forward, and a step back, that is.

Ninjas and explosions: two great tastes that you would think taste great together, right? Throw them in a pot, mix with weapons, gadgets, and frenetic multiplayer action, and you have a recipe for an awesome adventure. Sadly, I don't think this one cooked long enough.

In the thrilling conclusion to a rubbish playthrough of a boring campaign, the noble Jim Sterling fights his way through Stasis Interrupted, fighting more Weyland Yutani mercs, having a close encounter with an alien Queen, and giving up on the last bit because it's dumb. It was going on far too long anyway.

A Fistful of Gun is a combination of a classic beat-'em-up like Turtles in Time and a shoot-'em-up like Jamestown. So naturally, I'm deeming it a sheat-'em-up. No, wait, that sounds terrible. A boot-'em-up? Better, but still not that great... How about a boosh-'em-up? Yeah, I'll go with that one. A Fistful of Gun is the best goddamn boosh-'em-up of all time.

Really, why even play clearly deficient retro games? I mean, where are the shmup segments in Metroid? Where are the open world segments in Contra? Where are the line segments in a bisected triangle?
