Frantic 3 Review

Frantic 3, from Polymer Rabbit is the continuation of the acclaimed old school shooter with the same name. Since there's been a lot of sequels later, the answer remains the same, is this iteration of the IP worth it's name?

Crazy original title screen.
Those of you who have read this blog already know I'm a big fan of 2D shooters like Frantic, and by big fan I mean I complete every single one I get my hands on to 100%. So it's no surprise I liked Frantic 3, but can I recommend it to you?

Honestly not really. Although Frantic 3 is a great game in its genra, is does nearly nothing new, and the difficulty is amazingly high! Although I welcomed the spike in difficulty out of this one, I'm sure most flash players that are somewhat new to this type of games will simply punch the screen (gently) and move on.

The mechanic introduced here is the "grazing mechanic". Some items you equip your ship in your traditional upgrade tab activate effects when you graze a bullet. This is actually very interesting because in some situations you are actually pushed into grazing to get some of those nice item procs, and sometimes you will die from this type of overconfidence, but it will be your fault alone.

Bullet Hell!

All in all, Frantic is pretty a conservative and hardcore game I can only recommend to fans of 2D shooters. The gameplay is standard (dodge bullets, auto-fire, secondary activated fire), collect some money, buy upgrades, and clear levels. What makes it stand out is the outright very high difficulty, but is that enough for you?

Game Rating: 7/10
