In Fusion: Genesis, users begin as a lab assistant subsequently thrust into a galactic conflict. After an upgrade to a ship with customizable parts, users must enter into different factions to complete missions to earn XP and advance the plot.
The controls are solid with the left analog stick for movement and right analog stick to shoot. The initial ship holds two weapons slots for a rail gun and Sentient 1 Tank.
Once deployed, users can join a faction to purchase ships, embark on missions, purchase auction items and from other users.
While enemy shooting is fun, faction missions can be tedious. Missions include flying to a waypoint, mining asteroids for ore, blasting space junk, escaping a battle, and possibly destroying enemies.
Multiplayer options include forming a squadron with four players, though the title does include an organizational screen to keep all users in check. A co-op survival and versus mode offers an improved experience to survive waves of enemies or battle against another user.
The graphics engine is solid at 60 frames-per-second. Spacecraft and various locations are well-defined with vivid neon colors and sharp detail. The sound effects are decent and offer good blast sounds and mechanical ambience.
Fusion: Genesis is a standard shooter that is a bit empty in the vast universe. While shooting mechanics against enemy ships is solid, the journey is laborious without a significant intergalactic bounty.
