Having recently gotten my PC set up with my long-delayed graphics card I decided to nab a new game on Steam- Dakka Squadron! It's an arcade-style flight shooter with a distinctly Orky flavour to it, and having given it a spin I love it.
>Wonderful visuals, really good grasp on the 40K look and the Ork aesthetic.
>Once you get the hang of the controls, zipping about in your jet is really, really fun. Especially when you can effectively handbrake-turn in your jet.
>Excellent voice acting, properly Orky sounding.
>Not only can you paint your jet any number of colours, but the colours have actual Orky in-game effects! Blue makes you luckier (less likely to take damage), red makes you faster, purple makes you harder to hit, etc.
>It is by far and away the Orkiest game on Steam right now, bar none.
>Almost enough Dakka.
>Learning to fly the jet is quite tricky, and you'll probably crash a lot at first. Definitely take the time to fiddle with the sensitivity settings.
>The maps are a little bit small, and from what I've seen of the campaign they get repeated a lot.
>Can't skip intro cutscenes, which is annoying if you die and have to restart the level.
>Aiming is about as precise as you would expect from an Ork pilot.
>Not quite enough Dakka.
It's not perfect, but it is a lot of fun and I would definitely recommend it. Certainly I liked it enough to leave this Orky review for it on Steam:
