After a 12 year hiatus, Alfa System has teamed up with Chorus Worldwide to create the new “cute-em-up” Sisters Royale: Five Sisters Under Fire. These companies are known for delivering over-the-top action and a bevvy of bullets – does this title do the same?
Sisters Royale: Five Sisters Under Fire Review
The story begins with a prophecy, one that tells of five sisters coming together to defeat the evil Seytan. However, these ladies have said nuts to that, and are at each others’ throats over the dreamy Lord Yashin. To prove their fealty for this fellow, the girls take to defeating one another until one reigns supreme.
It’s a goofy tale, one that has countless shade thrown at every happenstance. The broken English, still images caught mid-frame, and odd spacing do take away from the story and make it hard to follow, but almost anybody can understand banter like “goldfish poop” and “old hag.”
To rise the ranks among the different ladies, one must first choose which heroine will come out on top. Each character has their own unique shot pattern, power shot pattern (which is activated when close to enemy fire), summon, and bomb. Most of the mechanics are pretty straightforward – you press the shot button to fire bullets, and a bomb deals out massive damage while also clearing out enemy fire.
However, one could argue that the summon mechanic makes things too easy. Though it does limit maneuverability, we found that the sheer convenience and availability that comes with having the summon out almost breaks the game. Our initial playthrough with Sonay had her summon rushing out to enemies and bosses almost instantly, dealing out plenty of damage and racking up a high score. This can be ignored, mind you, but we found it to be a little too overpowered for our liking.
Of course, for those looking to one credit clear the title, they will need all the help that they can get. Each stage has a different gimmick to it, from the Cave of Ice’s slippery floor to the Dungeon of the Soul’s darkness. Sisters Royale uses a TATE format, so the limited real estate makes certain sections tricky. The title does try to alleviate things by putting notifications near enemy spawn points, but only memorization can help with the trickier parts.
Along the way, players will be able to collect coins. Though players are allowed three hits before being forced to continue, a single hit causes all coins to explode onto the screen. It’s a welcome mechanic, one that encourages players to act defensively rather than offensively.
Just be warned that this title is a bit on the short side, with just a paltry five levels. There is a ranking system, online leaderboards, and a practice mode to sink your teeth into, but the variety comes from the different sisters’ playstyles, rather than the layout of each stage. Arcade aficionados are all too familiar with this song and dance, but more casual players might be looking for something more when the credits start rolling.
Sisters Royale: Five Sisters Under Fire is a solid shmup, albeit one that plays things a little too safe. The power shot mechanic has merit, but the inclusion of summons …

Heroic Actions are one of the collectibles you can get in Zombie Army 4. Check out this guide to find all of the Zombie Army 4 Heroic Action locations. You will get extra loot and extra perks for completing these as you go.
The first Heroic Action is found in the last chapter of level one, Gone Off The Rails. As you run through the train yard, you will come across some stairs you have to go up. Rush up the stairs, then down the next set to a shack. Inside this shack are two men fighting the zombies. Keep them BOTH alive and you will get the Heroic Action after you kill all the zombies.

Next Action is found during the Village of Darkness chapter. There is a sniper tower in the town area and at the top is a sniper.

If you are in co-op, have someone deal with the tank with the rocket launcher and someone else watch the stairs. When the zombies are all dead, he will open the safe and you will complete the Heroic Action. I had to toss a nade at him in the end to get to move from the safe. He didn’t die, he was just blocking my path.
Next Heroic Action is found during the Hot On The Trail chapter. Get to the dock and defend the boat to get a demolition charge. Blow the debris up and a guy near the safe room will run to the boat. Escort him back because zombies will spawn in and try to eat him. Once he makes it back, you will get your Heroic Action.

It’s 1945, the end of World War II. However, in this particular fictitious history, ’twas not the Allies that emerged victorious. An evil undead Hitler has resurrected the dead, launching endless waves of zombies at the Allied forces, leaving only small cells of resistance left to fight for the survival of humanity.
Zombies, undead tanks, a Hitler horde – Zombie Army 4: Dead War steps away from the traditionally serious narrative surrounding World War II and instead promises some old-school, mindless, zombie-slaughtering fun that never takes itself too seriously.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War Review
Heavily influenced by the fantastically fun Sniper Elite games, Zombie Army 4: Dead War takes a more linear approach to level design and gameplay, providing more action-orientated combat, as opposed to Sniper Elite’s traditionally slower-paced and more tactical approach. While removing the tactical depth may appear a negative aspect, at least initially, what it removes in strategy it more than delivers in fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled zombie encounters.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War’s level design is familiar throughout, challenging players to increasingly difficult missions, running from safe room to safe room, stocking up on supplies, and heading out to take on the next mission objective. The objectives are varied and engaging, ranging from simple “stand your ground against the horde” missions to more challenging boss encounters. It’s a familiar mix, but one that changes frequently enough to keep the entire campaign (about 10-15 hours) varied and entertaining without over-complicating the process.
Much like its more serious Sniper Elite brethren, Zombie Army 4: Dead War lives and dies on the quality of combat. While the arsenal of weapons is disappointingly limited, featuring only around four in each category of Primary, Secondary, and Pistol, the way in which these weapons deployed is anything but. Sniper Elite’s bread and butter sniping gameplay takes the front of stage triumphantly in Zombie Army 4: Dead War, albeit with a little less focus on range and a little more on volume.
Approaching a small clearing to spot a group of mindless zombies stumbling around in the distance immediately gets the pulse racing. You sit back, line up the perfect shot, hold your breath, and grin in utter glee as Sniper Elite’s famous bullet camera follows your shot to the point of impact and beyond. Having killed over 5,000 zombies throughout the campaign, the first bullet camera headshot was as disturbingly satisfying as the last, never over-powering, or being so frequent to hinder the overall pace and quality of the experience. It’s fantastic, each and every time.
When long range combat isn’t viable or ammo is low, which happens a lot, you’ll resort to alternative means to taking down yet another wave of seemingly never-ending zombies. Thankfully, even with the bullet camera taking a backseat, Zombie Army 4: Dead War’s combat excels in every aspect. Laying down tripwires and mines before defending a location, launching grenades into unsuspecting clusters, shooting defensive targets that activate electrified floors or giant fans that suck in and dismember anything that approaches (including other editors, sorry Johnny), the combat is constantly fresh, exciting, immersive, and rewarding. And that’s just the variation of arsenal available to the players. Regular special zombies are introduced, providing varying degrees of threat and challenge …
