The Club (PlayStation 3)

 

The way to win each event is simple: He who finishes with the most points wins. Points are awarded for kills, with distribution based on the accuracy of your shooting, the toughness of the enemy in question, and the weapons being used by both you and...

Are you the type of gamer who obsesses about reaching that top score? Trying to climb the leaderboards by memorizing levels and executing pinpoint perfection is an old-school trait that...

The Club Game Review - Playstation 3

 

Great fast-paced killing action; wide supply of diverse modes and locations

Weapons can feel all too similar at times; if killing for points is not your thing

The Club

 

A game titled The Club could be about any number of things. It could be about a ragtag pack of adolescent misfits who get in wacky adventures while learning important life lessons. It's not. It could be about a team of loveable losers who come together...

The Club is a classic example of an excellent rental game. Its brutal, rapid pace will wear you out in a hurry, and just when you think you can't take much more POOF! It's over. The idea is decent, and it has a cool style matched with some interesting...

The Club valiantly tries to mix risk/reward scenarios with normal first-person shooter trappings, but...

Though it may not hit on quite the same level as Bizarre's racing efforts, The Club is at least an interesting take on the already overcrowded next-gen shooter market. The basic ideas are sound, if recycled a little too much, and the online play is...

Picture yourself as a well-to-do type with Scrooge McDuck-style wealth and more power than most world leaders. What do you do with such immense and inscrutable status? Donate to charity? Solve social and economic problems? Rope a bunch of murderers and...

A very clever set of ideas that never reaches its potential, The Club is fun, yet slightly misses its mark.

The Club has a lot of fresh ideas but its lack of refinement in many key areas drags it down a notch. The gameplay is simple to learn, despite the spotty controls, but incredibly difficult to master which either gives the title a degree of longevity if...

Under blazing gung-ho gunnery there is zen-like simplicity to The Club that boils down to an experience akin to "wax-on, wax-off." That, plus rocket launchers.

Despite obvious references to the movie Fight Club, The Club has far more in common with another, less trendier clique, i.e. a "Most Dangerous Game" all-boys club where malevolent men are measured by the girth of their scores. It's arcade twitch gaming...

This Club shoots and scores.

The Club

 

Are you ready to kill in the name of self-preservation, bloodthirst, and high scores?

Plenty of replayability; fast-paced action; many gameplay modes

Appeal doesn't carry over to multiplayer; game types feel repetitive

Product Specifications

For decades a secret network of corrupt politicians, sick businessmen and the bored elite have been arranging real life deathmatches between men of differing motivations. Some within The Club's participants are there for thrills, others against their will. What unites them is skill with a gun. In eight global locations you control one of these misfit gladiators. Survival is not your sole concern. To succeed you must kill quickly, build huge combos, display outrageous skill with your gun and remain ruthlessly focused - for no matter how good you think you are, there will always be someone willing to risk their life to beat your score.
