    "Hotline Miami is a really nicely done Top-Down Shooter style game, and Steam makes it easy to download. The game is very, very violent but has a good plot. Maybe a slight warning for those that don't do violence well, but otherwise this is very fun to play."

    "I love this game! My friends and I have played it for many hours, and love the mechanic where you can accidentally kill your allies. I can't recommend it enough for fans of twin stick shooters."

    "Alien Swarm combines co-op play and squad-level tactics to provide gamers with a game that they will enjoy time after time. For a top-down game, the graphics are incredible and the game runs very smooth."

    "Man, as far as top-down shooter games available on steam.. Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number really delivers. It's action packed, fast paced, and the violence is mind boggling. Definitely a keeper in my book. I'll be logging a ton of hours on this game!"

    "I had fun playing Hatred, even if it was a tad dark at times. This was a refreshing breakaway from top-down shooters, which made it enjoyable to play."

    "A lot of fun, and I'll be honest, I didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did. The action can be pretty frantic, but not overwhelmingly so, and the graphics and visual effects are quite good and match very well with the art style. Most importantly to me, it was a good deal of fun to play."

    "Relic Hunters Zero seems to be one of the best games to play when finding a shooter game on Steam. Its looks challenging and I find it interesting to the point I want to continue to advance. I am usually not good at these types of games though."

    "Alien Breed 2 is a game about the hero who kills supposedly intelligent aliens. If you enjoy killing games then this will give you hours of fun. It is a high quality game where you help Conrad, the hero, work his way through some disagreements with the aliens."

    "You might look at this game at first, and not be impressed with the graphics. But I urge you to look past that because the game play is amazing. If you love tactical shooter games, you'll fall in love with this one. They really make sure to put you right in the middle of the action which I always enjoy in shooter games."

    "I love top-down shooter games and wanted to find a good one on Steam. I found The Binding of Isaac. This game is so awesome. It's where you play as a guy named Isaac and have to escape your nutty mother who wants to sacrifice you. It's really immersive and addicting. I've played it for hours at a time. The graphics are simple, but that's fine since the game is so fun. I highly recommend this game to all gamers. Check it out now!"
