    While it doesn't totally reinvent the twin-stick shooter, it has all but perfected it and is worth every penny.

    While the Rogue like genre may be getting a little crowded, there's certainly room for the likes of Enter the Gungeon. It ticks all the boxes, with gameplay that beckons you to come back for one more run, a great art style and presentation, and seemingly something new discover or unlock on every playthrough.

    Enter the Gungeon is a wonderful, demanding yet rewarding, roguelike twin-stick shooter where the visuals marry perfectly with the gameplay to deliver one of the most addictive experiences in recent memory. Fans of Binding of Isaac, Spelunky et al sit up and take notice, Enter the Gungeon rolls with the punches and delivers an experience worth of sitting alongside these greats.

    Enter the Gungeon is an essential pick for those that are fans of the roguelike twin-stick shooter genre, and a great choice for those looking for an action-filled arcade romp as well. Even with permadeath threatening to ruin your fun around every corner, the vast selection of goofy guns and eventual discoveries keep you coming back again and again without any lingering frustration.

    Enter the Gungeon offers fresh and always fair pixel action and will be a thrill especially for Isaac fans.

    Enter the Gungeon is a wonderful mix of intricate difficulty and vast silliness (dodge)rolled into one— Any player partial to roguelikes or bullet-hell games will find a lot to do, and completists will be running around the gungeon for months to come.

    Enter the Gungeon is an exhilarating experience, but the difficulty often comes from the game refusing to provide you the necessary tools, which offers its own unique challenges.

There are cool weapons, cool JOKE weapons, nice secrets, "Hard" Bosses (For most of the pepole this game is hard, Beat it in 25 hours ALL bosses 1 run) and of course this humor! Very cool game, worth the money and time. Only things that are needed for this game are more updates (updates are rare, but big) Online multiplayer (there is but it's co-op local) and of course MORE GUNS! I am really curious what Dodgeroll will add next. BETTER THAN ISSAC and this nuclear game no-one even care of xd Expand

    An exceptionally good game even in 2018 that is more fun and addictive then any other rogue-like dungeon crawler I've played before, Enter theAn exceptionally good game even in 2018 that is more fun and addictive then any other rogue-like dungeon crawler I've played before, Enter the Gungeon is a masterpiece of a game. From the variety of characters and weapons, all the way to the original enemies and challenging bosses, this is a game you can easily sink 50 hours into in a blink of an eye. Even after completing the "real" ending, there is still much more to complete within this game, even if you've 100% completed it. I find myself coming back to play this game often, and in all honesty it is a must own for anyone who is slightly interested in the game play. This game, while extremely difficult feels much more rewarding when you finally beat that one boss that's giving you trouble, or that one enemy that's been giving you trouble for so many runs. The game also rewards good play but also relies on RNG to generate rooms and rewards, not to mention the variety of guns each with their specific advantages and disadvantages. If you are someone who usually finds themselves upset by "unfair" RNG, I can guarantee this game probably isn't for you as most of the game relies on RNG. If you get good enough at this game though, RNG will not hinder a run. The thing I find most enjoyable about this game though, is the Gungeon's lore. Each Gungeoneer is at the Gungeon for a reason, and by playing the game and completing side quests from NPC's, you will be able to unlock the mysterious story piece by piece in arguably one of the coolest ways possible. In conclusion, if you are looking for a fun and challenging rogue like, I cannot suggest this game enough. And while it's not for more casual players, the game is fair and rewarding. That's why I give Enter the Gungeon a 10/10. Expand

    Mostly a response to grayback's review who seem to either misinformed or terrible at the game.

    Having played 21 hours in the first 2 days of release, most of the guns are either directly more powerful than the starting weapons, or are more difficult to use. In fact, the starting weapons are one of the only things I find boring about the game. Getting new weapons is always exciting.

    Equipping your character is rarely something you get to choose, there's so many items that you're at the mercy of RNG.

    I find all the bosses to be of roughly the same difficulty level that I've encountered thus far and have been frustrated with exactly 0 of them. Everything they do is in a pattern you can predict, anticipate and dodge. If you screw up, it's on you. The game has not once felt like it cheated me. To top this off, there's an incredible variety in the enemies, it's simply spread out amongst the levels. I suspect greyback never made it past the first to 2nd level.

    This seems to be a case of someone who's bad at the game blaming the game rather than himself. I've played my share of games that feel like they screw you over, this isn't one of them. The balance is great, the variety is great, the art is great. The only thing that I would point to as being shy of excellent is the soundtrack.

    I would urge anyone reading to check steam reviews where the general consensus is "overwhelmingly positive".

    This game has exceptional depth.
    First you see it - naah, just another boring slow-paced shooting game.
    After several tries, you start getting it. Bosses are difficult as hell, there are tons of secrets and weapons, every run is quite unique...
    Finally, you defeat the boss and find the ending.
    Then wait... is is not real ending!
    And eventually, after many tries, you find REAL ending!..
    Then wait...

    It is not perfect but is definitely a solid gameplay that leaves you hoping the developers had done more out of their ideas.

    How a bullet-hell based game can be slow and boring? That's how.
    Как игра основанная на механике Буллетхелла может быть медленной и скучной?
