Viscera Cleanup Detail
I have to say that Viscera Cleanup Detail is one of the most interesting and fun games I have played in a while. The idea here is that aliens have invaded a facility and one man stood up, took them all down and saved humanity… you are not that man! Instead, you are part of the cleanup crew that has to clean up the mess that this hug war left behind. It is weird, tongue in cheek and a breath of fresh air.
It’s the Hard Knock Life For Us
The game will spawn you in on one of the many different maps and you have a mop in your hand. The idea of each level is that you need to clean up the mess that has been left behind after a violent, grouse and extremely bloody battle. I know this sounds odd, but it works so very well. You will need to mop up blood, dirt, pick up body parts, bullet casings and more. There is a ton of stuff for you to clean.
Viscera Cleanup Detail does have a bit of a story running through it for you. You can come across notes as you are cleaning and these work wonders to flesh out what happened and it was something that I actually found very interesting.
Hello My Friends
I am not talking about the multiplayer just yet! What I mean is that you have three things that can help you out along your way. One is a water bucket that lets you mop and clean, there is a trach bucket you can put things like bullet casings and body parts in and there is also an incinerator that gets rid of the trash for you. I do think they maybe could have had a couple of other things to help your cleaning if I am honest.
Cleaning Team 3000
You can clean up by yourself if you want and I found the game to have a rather relaxing vibe going on when I did that. You are striving towards getting a good ranking at the end of each level. You can also play with friends and this is where the real fun is. You see, cleaning together to get the best score is great. However, the game is clever in that it lets you screw around as well. We had a blast doing this, we were cleaning, but messing with the game's physics was something that legit made me laugh out loud on many occasions.
More To Do
As much fun as Viscera Cleanup Detail is I do wish there was more in the way of progression here. Working towards that high score cleaning ranking is good and all, but I wish there was some fun unlockable that they could have included. I am not just talking about more cleaning tools, but even stuff that would maybe let you pimp out your mop would have been cool.
I think that Viscera Cleanup Detail is a fantastic idea for a game. It is the kind of game that is very easy for me to recommend. I do wish that it had a little more to it if I am being 100 percent honest with you. However, it is still a fun time and it is the kind of game that manages to be bloody and also makes you laugh as well.
