    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.

    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 is a solid spin-off that is able to deliver a level of enjoyment that matches its predecessor, while also standing tall on its own two feet.

    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.

    Most of the content, including music, items, and enemies, is directly transferred from the world of Enter The Gungeon, making the product even more secondary than it previously seemed. On PC, Exit the Gungeon has already experienced several patches, after which it became more playable, but it is still noticeable that this is a quickly molded game, released in the hope of hype around the first one and high sales.

    Exit the Gungeon is an extremely simple and repetitive rogue-like that doesn't feel worthwhile as a PC or console experience.

    Honestly, I feel like this one is a game that manages to make a lot of little bad decisions, but the fundamental mechanic of how it handles weaponry speaks to a basic desire to make a game all about weird guns in which you never care about any of them. They’re all just momentary blips you’ll never get to hang on to, so you don’t care about their quirks and can’t build around them at all. You always feel like you’re playing with half of your tools.

    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

    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

    I prefer Enter The Gungeon. It's not bad either, but moving around in dungeons was better than an elevator.

    Exit The Gungeon, Is a side screen Platformer with bullet hell elements included inside of it's game play.
    This Game is clearly a spin off that has much less polish and less quality in it's craft compared to The Original Gungeon.
    Exit the Gungeon seems to have had love put into it, but these are still my opinions when comparing these two titles, I don't think Exit The Gungeon is a bad game but it is lacking in places.

    Game Play
    The Game play in this game compared to it's predecessor feels a little flimsy, and seems to be missing the meaningful hint of skill that was contained in every segment of the Original game. The guns seems more of a chance if it will lock onto the correct target, and having the guns be randomized every few seconds makes the strategy of what weapons and what chests you try to acquire is gone. The new jump action seems neat but adds no more variety/strategy then the original dodge roll already did. Taking away the reload action and the ammo count gets rid of the rhythmic timing the original had making it a guess when your bullets will be delayed. The balancing seems to be either a hit or miss from interaction to interaction, comparing two bosses,The Low Priest is a great consistent experience while GungaMesh seems to be a unfair fight.

    Writing
    The Writing in this game took a step up, having more interactions with characters like Ox and Cadence begin to interact more and have more banter. However, the slow sort of sadness that the original is nearly all gone, you get glimpses of it here and there but this game doesn't carry as much purpose or faint desperation that each character subtlety carried. The game is much more light hearted

    Originality
    Their is very few things that are this games idea, most things in this game are heavily reused as well as ideas. Their is 5 returning bosses with twists and 6 are original to this game. Nearly all the enemies are from the previous game and all the items are from the previous as well. All in All this game's most original concept is adding hats...

    Final Thoughts
    After finishing this review i can say this game is not bad, but is not a proper continuation of Gungeon. The Game would have fared better if it was it's own thing, if this was a regular arcade shooter I don't think this would make me as disappointed as I am.

    I have been following this title from the moment the first mentions of the continuation of one of the best bullet hell croissants appeared. II have been following this title from the moment the first mentions of the continuation of one of the best bullet hell croissants appeared. I didn't really like the changes to virtually every aspect of the game, but well, I wanted to give it a shot. Seeing how strongly it was focused on mobile ports, I had little hope for another great title, but I wanted to give it a chance. Seeing the next update, I wanted to give it a shot.
    I gave that chance and was terribly disappointed. The feeling of the weapon is tragic, we often do not know where our character is, the dodging system makes it hit e.g. lower than planned. The very assumption of playing in 2D is not bad, if only by adding "weight" of bullets to some weapons, but ... weapons ... The mechanics of combos and random equipment are such a fun killer that I was shocked. This effect in Enter the Gungeon was something cool, but triggered separately. Here it turns out to be simply tiring. Even without losing the combo, we can suddenly get a crap, the usefulness of which oscillates around zero.
    The game doesn't even have the effect of "take it and learn it, it will get better and better later". For me, every minute was wasted, it was a torment.
    I strongly advise against this title, especially to Enter the Gungeon fans, because it is not a continuation of the brilliant title, it's crap.
