Miss this gun show

Product: Overkill 2
Publisher: Craneballs Studios
Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Overkill 2 has a pathological obsession with firepower. Every action you perform is designed to increase your collection of gleaming, super-powered weaponry.
Pawing through your catalogue of rotatable, pornographically three-dimensional shooters gives you a sense of how Jeremy Clarkson must feel at a motor show, or how a schoolboy feels when he finds a certain kind of magazine in a hedge.
But, as with those periodicals, the relationships you forge with your guns are paradoxically deeper on the page than in real life. Take them to the shooting range and they turn out to be shallow and meaningless, and they leave you feeling a little bit dirty.
For all of Overkill 2's obsession with weaponry, there isn't enough of an actual game in here to keep you interested
