Archer E Bowman is a game that I really want to like. It has some humour, it looks great and it plays well. I thought that way back when it was released for free in the concepts section and I still think it now. Everything about the game is good except for one thing. It's not a lot of fun.
I'm not sure that that is Archer E Bowman's fault though. This game has been in development for a long time, but in that time we have been treated to (or subjected to depending on your opinion) a lot of gazed based stationary shooters. Some of them are much better than others and Archer E Bowman is certainly one of the best there is in the category, but ultimately, no matter how good of a stationary shooter it is, it's still a stationary shooter. You can swap out the graphics, change the enemies, imbue the character with various powers or equip them with varying forms of ammunition, but in the end the play is still just looking and tapping and looking and tapping. And not a lot else.
