With its broken English, penchant for blood, and objectification of women, this apocalyptic FPS aims to create an action-movie video game, and for the most part the two-level demo hits its mark. Based on the Serious Sam game engine, Nitro Family offers a high-octane, mostly entertaining shoot-'em-up.

You play Viktor Chopski, a professional hunter with his animal-trainer wife strapped to his back. The conjoined couple must rescue their son Red Chief from an evil pharmaceutical corporation (its "mysterious" need for "body of babies" is barely explained on the developer's Web site). Ridiculous plot? Check. There's an Offspring-knockoff band playing in the background. Alternative soundtrack? Check. There's an attractive woman selling high-powered weapons (and other secrets) on the street corner, who shakes her stuff as you make your selection. Shameless eye candy? Check. And then there's the blood. It's hard to miss because it usually covers the screen. To buy power-up weapons, you must collect credits by scoring combos. Combos are achieved by blowing your opponents skyward, then blasting them over and over again. Over-the-top violence? Check.

Nitro Family gets bonus points for its creative use of mutant chickens and pigs, and its gameplay and graphics are on par with Serious Sam, with the major addition of double-fisted weapons. Launchable bomb attacks--performed by the wife strapped to your back--are another unique feature. It's a decent FPS but mostly fluff--extremely bloody fluff.

Developer's Description

Try the dual-gun action in this first-person shooter based on the Serious Sam engine.
Nitro Family focuses mainly on images of the deepest desires of man, such as violence, sensuality, and beauty, with a pure enjoyment of gaming. By embodying and mixing images in a nonserious way, players will experience a strange but bright and funny atmosphere similar to B movies, with gameplay never before seen in any first-person shooter. Nitro Family is powered by the world-renowned Serious Sam engine.
