    Exit the Gungeon made the smart move to take its adventure to consoles, and the result is a fun and skill-based gaming experience. The game can be enjoyed in small bursts or long play sessions as you hone your skills during each run. The only downside is the amount of things to do here is limited to what the mobile version could accomplish, which makes this entry come up a bit short. Regardless, I found this version to be the best way to play.

    Exit The Gungeon may not hit the same high notes as its predecessor, but it's still a worthwhile trip to take from the bottom all the way to the top.

    I admittedly didn’t exit the Gungeon but I had a lot of fun between the Breach and my constant deaths trying to escape the time paradox created with Enter The Gungeon. Although this process often feels like beating my head against a wall with other titles, the charm and chaos of Exit The Gungeon keeps me captivated while my stubbornness forces me to keep picking it up and trying to climb my way out of the Gungeon.

    Is it another Enter the Gungeon? No, it isn't. But as a quick arcade romp, it's a blast. It shows that even when shifting genres, Dodge Roll knows how to craft a good roguelike and keep players wanting to punish themselves more and more with each run.

    Exit the Gungeon is neither as sharp nor as complete as it could be, but its foundation is so strong that it can be great fun regardless.

    If you’re expecting a full follow-up to Enter the Gungeon, with the same degree of depth, you’ll be disappointed. Exit the Gungeon is, at its best, a fun but shallow shooter, which doesn’t really deliver on its appealing premise. But if you’re prepared to take this light and fluffy sidequel for what it is, there’s still joy to be had on your way out of the Gungeon.

    Exit the Gungeon is ultimately neither a good bullet hell game, nor a particularly fun experience. All in all, it’s a pretty bite size offering that lacks the variety one would expect from a full PC title. The lack of a twin stick control scheme, combined with the gun blessing sweepstakes and the requirement for constant jumping and dodging, means aiming at enemies isn’t fluid. The blessing mechanic effectively feels like a mod – something a player might try out for fun, or to change up their experience with the game, or to add a new challenge into the mix. In reality though, there is unfortunately no uninstalling this feature. Players are better off sticking to mobile, or more sophisticated shmups.

    After years of loving and playing Enter The Gungeon I'm happy to say Exit The Gungeon is a great game. It was beautiful graphics mixing smoothAfter years of loving and playing Enter The Gungeon I'm happy to say Exit The Gungeon is a great game. It was beautiful graphics mixing smooth and pixelated graphics flawlessly. The controls feel responsive and I feel in control at all times. The only problem that keeps this from being a ten is the fact a lot of people have a problem with the controls I changed my control layout before the game started and had a great experience. The problem isn't that the controls are bad just that the default controls for controllers are not well chosen. Expand

    while inferior to the game this spin-off is based on, it still has much of enter the gungeon's charm. I like the concept of the gungeoneerswhile inferior to the game this spin-off is based on, it still has much of enter the gungeon's charm. I like the concept of the gungeoneers having to escape the gungeon, and while it takes a bit of time to get used to the new controls, it feels good to control. Expand

    Exit the Gungeon is for me a very fun game, but it's also quite strange : it's a mix of platform and bullet hell that can be very difficultExit the Gungeon is for me a very fun game, but it's also quite strange : it's a mix of platform and bullet hell that can be very difficult for newcomers, with a particular gungeon charm. The game-play is very fluid and good, and it's got a lot more action than Enter the Gungeon. The whole game is made to make you shoot, move, dodge, but not to make you explore, and that was something pretty cool in Enter the Gungeon. Anyways, this game is good. Buy it. Expand

    XTG is NOT a sequel to Enter the Gungeon, it's a spin-off and should not be considered a full time adventure for over 250 hours, which I haveXTG is NOT a sequel to Enter the Gungeon, it's a spin-off and should not be considered a full time adventure for over 250 hours, which I have in ETG. Exit is a well-done, game. However gameplay is something that could prove harsh to ETG veterans; It's ultra wierd if you have played Enter for quite some time. XTG is a GREAT game. No matter what everyone says, give It a try, even if you'll have to use torrents Expand
