Crossing the blood-game barrier

nanobreaker has a descriptive review of Nano Breaker:
    Buckets and buckets and buckets of blood are involved in Nano Breaker. On second thought, forget the buckets and just bring a full-on tanker. Sure, the game may call the red stuff that gushes out of the opponents "oil," but everyone knows that this game is about the gore. Take a peek at one screen and you'll know what we mean. With a combat system that favors combos and building up to super powers, Nano Breaker is a pure-bred hack'n'slash and lives up to the genre. We got a chance to play it and all we can think about is blood. More here
If you're wondering about the "nano" in the game (does it really matter?), here's how they weave it into the ... um ... plot.
    Apparently the nanomachines of the future go bad and begin to harvest the blood of humans and the iron of buildings in order to construct an army of monster machines poised to obliterate the entire human race. Not so good. More here
Any nano-knowledgable gamers out there who can write? I can offer no money for nano-themed game reviews, but I can offer you nano-fame at the price of total loss of respect from your peers. Send me a note if you're interested.

Update: More Nano Breaker reviews can be found here and here.
