    A return to gaming's roots. The best launch title for PS4 bar none.

    Another expertly produced retro-inspired shooter from Housemarque, Resogun gives players an immensely impressive level of depth, challenge, replayability, and graphical prowess that stands as one of the best ways to be introduced to the recently launched PlayStation 4.

    Housemarque did it again. Resogun is a brilliant shooter with lots under its hood: great visuals, stunning gameplay and rich personality. If only it had more levels.

    Much like Geometry Wars was for the Xbox 360, it’s an extremely fun and addictive arcade shoot-em-up that is actually more worth your time than any of the hotly anticipated full-priced launch titles.

    Simultaneously tense and strangely meditative. [Feb 2014, p.72]

    It’s gorgeous; Resogun draws on its host hardware’s graphical capabilities to make you feel like the most powerful entity in the room.

    Resogun does everything it promises, and not a a bit more. It has gorgeous graphics and solid skill-based gameplay, with valuable online co-op support and just enough content to keep things interesting for a while.

Beautiful graphics and incredibly addicting gameplay. It gets very challenging at the higher difficulties which gives this quite a bit of replay value, especially if you are trying to earn all the trophies.

    Amazingly addictive and challenging Resogun provides a real sense of enjoyment and is a must buy for the PS4.

    While being both rewarding and on higher levels, totally unforgiving, the game is a perfect balance of being a great feat and yet highly rewarding.

You have 3 unique ships all with their different play styles. This is one of those games that is easy to pick up and a lot of fun but hard to master on the higher difficulty settings, it's pretty addicting and worth the small price or if you have ps+ Expand

    while this game features some kickass music, that's pretty much all it's got going for it. being that this is an arcade type game, there's nowhile this game features some kickass music, that's pretty much all it's got going for it. being that this is an arcade type game, there's no real story, the objective is to save all the humans. the gameplay, whic is the most important aspect of this type of game, is alright at best, and be incredibly boring at times.i got it for free so i can't complain too much, however this game is not worth paying for at all.
