It’s hard enough worrying about the bullet-storm ahead when you just need to focus on one small playfield – how the hell are we expected to cope with Dimension Drive and it’s split-screen double battlegrounds?
Well, that is a question that can only be answered by going hands on with the latest intense space shooter to hit Xbox One. Thankfully, Dimension Drive is here and available for download.
Priced at £10.39, Dimension Drive doubles the usual challenge by tasking you with taking the fight to the enemy across two battlefields, separated by just a small split screen. Allowing you to instantly switch between them at will, you’ll be left to dodge bullets, strafe enemies and reach secret areas all whilst taking down as many bad guys as you possible can.
A multitude of difficulty levels moving all the way up to insane will provide the challenge, whilst a further New Game+ mode will test even the most hardened, well skilled pilots. The option of taking the fight alongside a mate via local co-op is an intriguing one and it is this which should see Dimension Drive draw gamers from across the land in.
The usual visit to the Xbox Store will sort you out with a download of Dimension Drive, whilst those sitting on the fence, unsure whether this is a game for them, would do well to keep an eye out for our full review.
