RICO – the abbreviation of "Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations" – is launched as an exaggerated shooter in which the gameplan is to knock down the doors, and go to fire all the bad guys you can see while dodging the bullets. Some have pointed out that the game has a bit of a Max Payne is FEAR feel.
In RICOIt's about taking advantage of the element of surprise, which means doing things quickly and without thinking twice if it's a good idea. In other words, it seems like improvisation will be your best strategy.
What may sell more players on the title is that you can play with a friend via a shared screen (or someone online). Together you will play with a couple of police friends who have only 24 hours to solve a case involving a criminal organized elite task force. As you can probably say from the premise, RICO it's much, much more about gameplay than about history.
Speaking of gameplay, Ground Shatter describes the firearms of the game as "perfect and impactful". And this is supported by a robust system of destruction and procedurally generated levels to keep things fresh thanks to multiple playthroughs. Like levels, even cases and operations are procedurally generated. The ranking support, the light RPG elements and the daily challenges have all been confirmed.
Personally I think RICO It sounds very funny, although I'm a little worried that it could grow old quickly. It is also freeing up between Devil May Cry 5 is The Clancy's The Division 2which is a hard sell for any game, not to mention one without a large marketing budget.
However, as always, feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you think. Will you collect it?
