HIGH: Exploding an enemy with their own projectile as it launches in glorious slow motion.

LOW: The unskippable first-person interactive cut-scenes bring the pacing to a halt.

HIGH Every time I backflipped off of a gorgie, slowed time in midair and blew the heads off of three others before touching the ground. This happened often.

LOW Restarting a stage and getting blown away by a starship-class laser before the chapter title had even faded from the screen.

WTF A tie between the dancing gorgies, and the fact that not one of them was doing the robot.

Gunblade NY & L.A. Machineguns Screenshot
