Well, that's disappointing. I was genuinely curious about the game when I saw it pop up on Steam its first day, but it sounds like a complete disaster based on your experience.

Now I'm curious about Strike Suit Zero... Good thing I have a PS4!

Strike Suit Zero is well worth playing. You'll spend every second you play Julai wondering how the hell they could charge so much for it.

Before I released this, I checked the steam page to make sure the price had not changed (it had not) and found it had several new user review posted on it giving the game a thumbs up. All of them with the same broken English, all of them with only one game to their name. Some of them directly trying to argue that the price is fair. It's great comedy -- like no one would see through that. The game's still awful.

Just went to see those reviews. Ouch.

On a side note, one of my absolute favorite Steam review features is how you can see each reviewers' play time for said games. Makes it easier to wade through the hyperbole.

They're downvoting negative reviews hard. In a matter of minutes, the one I put up collected almost a dozen downvotes while the only other one not in broken English with only one game to its name is also getting battered. It's hilarious to think that developers actually believe people will fall for this.

After a topic popped on the board basically saying this, the one product/one review accounts have suddenly picked up a second game and added equally worthless reviews to look more legit. This looks like it might be an amusing follow.

So I was just on Steam, happened to browse past Julai, and I immediately noticed the GLARING -90% week long deal.

That tickled me.

The same thing happened after my White Mirror review. I find it a little odd that most of the reviews there that aren't in broken English are negative

I had a look back on this today, for the sake of curiosity. The price has since been permanently nuked down to the 90% off 'deal' of £1.59. It's still a poor game, but at that bracket, you can be more forgiving.

Imagine my undying surprise as I decided to look back at this game and discovered The following

Seems I now own a discontinued game. You can all be jealous of me now.

Oh dayumm!

I checked back on White Mirror after reading this. The reception has shifted from "mostly positive" to "mostly negative."
