High on Life is a fantastic addition to the Xbox catalog. Even if it wasn’t in Xbox Gamepass I would be recommending you play this game for its story, Metroidvania exploration and Trick Holes. Since it’s included with Xbox Gamepass it’s a no-brainer to check out. If you are a fan of the Roiland style humor then you are in for a real treat. There were so many times I had to pause the game and set the controller down because I was so shocked by something that was said or done. It was a pleasant surprise to be caught off guard like that in a game and I really look forward to what Squanch Games does next. Hopefully it's a sequel to this must play game.
High On Life unapologetically caters to advent fans of absurdist comedy, which overflows with expletive language and wacky scenarios. Lack of enemy variety and performance issues may be a deterrent for some, however.
A fun FPS that gets better with every new talking gun you get. The wild situations, constant banter and sense of humor can either be great or a bummer, depending on your tastes. But if you like Rick & Morty, you're going to love it.
Anyone who isn’t thrilled at the idea of having Roiland constantly chattering in their ear for a dozen hours straight will likely find the game’s incessant need to force itself on the player annoying. With the addition of uncompelling combat, frustrating exploration, and a lack of anything else to offer players, High on Life is one of the most annoying, derivative, and slogging experiences in years.
I loved this game. It is one of the funniest games I have played and it overall kept me invested. There were times I genuinely did find the game to be annoying but the story was fun. I didn’t really care for the ending and felt like that could of genuinely been better. Even though I was disappointed with the general way they ended the game, the end credits kind of made up for it. Definitely worth playing, especially because it’s free on game pass!
This game is nauseating, legitimately. I tried to play and couldn’t because I was so nauseated, so I had to stop. Tried to watch a steamer play it and still nauseated. I am not sick, ill or anything of the sort. I was so hyped for this game because I love the style and humour. But it’s a hard pass now. Shame.
This game is very dependent on whether you like the humour. At first I thought it was quite funny, but it got a bit annoying a couple hours in. That's not the main reason I score it low though. The gameplay is kinda boring and there are some game breaking issues. Performance wasn't great but the biggest issue is the checkpoint system. I got stuck a few hours in and it checkpointed me. Only way to get out was to restart the game. Had high hopes for this game but unfortunately it was a bit disappointing.
