Warning: Rule No. 1 is not for children… or really anyone!

The point of Rule No. 1 is to get points to unlock naughty pics of the wise cracking heroine. The issue is, would you rather play a kinda awful rogue-like FPS game where you shoot geometric objects and 2d zombies, or shoot basketballs into a basket?

Rule No. 1 Switch Review

The main game is four different modes of essentially the same arena FPS, where you shoot geometric objects and zombies. There’s competitive mode, arcade mode, a mode with just the objects, and a mode where your weapon is stiletto heels. It’s honestly not very fun, and considering the leaderboard for Rule No. 1 is surprisingly low, I think many people agreed. Although, its only day three, I have a feeling Erik is going to be up there awhile.

Erik must be a glutton for punishment.

The real draw of Rule No. 1, and where you will make 99% of your points, is that basketball mini-game. You shoot basketballs into a basket, and it only really ends until all 5 balls end up out of bounds. Even if the clocks run out, just shoot again and the clock will reset. You’ll make tons of points each basket, so there is no reason to play the other modes. The points you gain in the other modes are minuscule compared to basketball.

This is fun!

So in the end, Rule No. 1 is a naughty game where the main modes are terrible and the only reason to keep playing is shooting hoops. I’m not gonna call it garbage, but it definitely is not recommended.

Overall: Rule No. 1 is a basketball shooting game, with four other terrible modes of zombie shooting.

Verdict: Not Recommended
