    Developers at team Awe Interactive managed to catch rhythm-shooter hype with a real finesse, and showing others how to make games in this new subgenre.

    BPM: Bullets Per Minute is an addictive, innovative, and punishingly hard roguelite shooter-slash-rhythm game - and it's great.

    BPM: Bullets Per Minute is an old-school shooter with a twist, adding in roguelike mechanics as well as rhythm-based gameplay. Jump, dash, shoot and reload to the beat to advance through a host of monster-filled levels, collecting keys, coins, equipment, and stats to try and get through the seven stages that constitute each playthrough. The gameplay is fun, fast, and frantic, it looks good and sounds great, with a perfect heavy-metal soundtrack, though there are a few flaws. A lack of enemy variety, particularly bosses, as well as level variety starts to show quickly.

    BPM is a well-executed, unique take on the rhythm-roguelite genre that has a lot to offer – if you can get accustomed to its demanding gameplay hook.

    There is no middle ground for BPM: either you love it, or you hate it. Personally, I feel this game crosses the line between challenge and frustration, offering a learning curve that is almost impossible to climb if you are not a true FPS lover. The soundtrack is excellent and the bundle with it is worth your money, but if you're not a very, very patient person with lightning-fast reflexes and an excellent sense of rhythm, you better look somewhere else.

    The few times that the RNG in BPM: Bullets Per Minute actually managed to put together a set of weapons and abilities that allowed for significant progress, the game shined, but it's just not worth the hours of suffering failed runs and mistimed shots. To borrow the game's own 90s shooter comparisons, playing BPM is like diving into Doom on Ultra Nightmare before learning how to play an FPS. The fun is still there, but it's buried under so many roadblocks and complications. The frustrating end result is a game with a great idea that bungles just about every part of the execution.

    Топовая игра, а саунд просто пушка.
    К визуалу быстро привыкаешь, а солянка жанров выдаёт очень уникальный и приятный опыт.

    Very innovative mix of rhythm, fps and rougelite elements feels awkward at first but as you settle in to the mechanics you will find yourselfVery innovative mix of rhythm, fps and rougelite elements feels awkward at first but as you settle in to the mechanics you will find yourself the star of a drug inspired metal music video. Reload, dodge and fire to the beat in an insanely satisfying hyper-stylized fast-paced action experience that will really get you in your flow state. Cannot recommend it enough! Each successful run is at most a couple of hours but the replayability is very high; I have dumped nearly 100 hours into it and keep coming back for the pure joy of the games carefully tuned and well polished basic mechanics.

    Can't stop playing it. Good rogue-like system with very satifsying rhytm shooting on metal tunes. Pure awesomness.

If the soundtrack and gameplay clicks for you, you will have a great time and the flaws wont bother so much. Hopefully overtime the devs can update the ui and balancing so the game feel better balanced and polished. I am having a blast playing it!! Its been awhile since I had so much fun. Also, its a rather cheap game so you can easily give it a chance. Expand

    This is quite possibly the worst shooter experience I had in my life. Even Bodycount was better.
