The Rats Online: Stuffin' And Lootin' Globally (Review)

image

I used to start out just about every review of an online game making some sort of comment about how I don’t really like online games. I'm beginning to think that’s not really the case. What I don’t like are games where if you’re not in the “elite” you’re pretty much dead when you step out on the battlefield. I also don’t care for games where people pretty much expect you to chat or make the game as much about taunting as actually playing. Thankfully The Rats Online (free with IAP) handles all of these things in just the right manner. Its simple nature makes it easy to get into, and the nicely organized list of folks you need to exact revenge on makes it worth coming back in periodically to see how things are going.

Each question has five correct answers, and you have to identify them quickly, out of a pool of as many as 25 potential answers. There is also a time element as well as "power ups" or "cheats" that you can earn to build your score.
