    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.

The visuals are impressive, theWhilst it may not have an extremely original idea, there's no denying that Resogun is a very fun game. The visuals are impressive, the gameplay is smooth, the music is solid, and it can also be very challenging. A perfect game for killing time and having fun, a combination that should be followed by other companies. Would definitely recommend this game to anyone who is looking for an impressive demonstration of the PS4's first year of releases. Expand
