Sev Zero gives us an idea of the gaming capabilities of the Fire TV box, and the launch game looks like it could have been released for the original Xbox. However, the production values leave a little to be desired. Mission debriefs are underwhelming, comprised of scrolling text with no voiceover. Maps also come off as a bit plain and drab. Any one part of the map looks almost identical to any other. Fortunately, the gameplay is fast enough so that you don't spend a lot of time checking out the background.
Although Sev Zero can be sufficiently challenging and exciting, it doesn't offer much that can't be found elsewhere. The fixed tower positions limit the game's strategic flexibility. And while the action portion is entertaining, it simply doesn't have much personality. The story isn't particularly engaging as well. What we end up with is a game that's fun for a while, but very easy to put down.
While Sev Zero doesn't have the originality or production to be regarded as a system seller, it's unquestionably a novel effort from Amazon Game Studios, and suffices in its role as "launch game." [
