    While the game can be fun at points, its archaic and dated design choices can make for an overall frustrating experience. Its combat doesn't require much thought, and the game can be "difficult" for the wrong reasons. Still, it's high points are still noteworthy highlights for the overall experience, and when everything works properly, you do feel as badass as the main character is supposed to be.

    Gungrave G.O.R.E oozes style and has a fantastic combat system, but a lack of variety, aggravating difficulty spikes, and often-frustrating design decisions keep it from reaching its full potential.

    Gungrave G.O.R.E. is a solid enough third person shooter with a lot of action to be found in its varied levels. It doesn't quite have the nuance of its best competitors, with moments of clunkiness that hold it back from greatness, but nonetheless it manages to be a satisfying adventure for the entirety of its runtime.

    Gungrave G.O.R.E delivers on the run-and-gun, stylish action with a modern PS2-like coat of paint that you'll either love or hate.

    Gungrave GORE is one of the worst of 2022. It's functional, but supremely awful the whole way through.

    In this country, the PS2 cult series should only be known to die-hard anime fans. After "Trigun: Planet Gunsmoke", which was shown at a SegaIn this country, the PS2 cult series should only be known to die-hard anime fans. After "Trigun: Planet Gunsmoke", which was shown at a Sega event in 2002, unfortunately disappeared shortly afterwards without further public announcement, the first "Gungrave" was released in the same year, which quickly became a cult hit among anime fans. A 26-episode anime series produced by Madhouse was released in 2003, followed by a no less leaden 2004 sequel, Gungrave: Overdose. After 14 years of fun, the spin-off "Gungrave VR" was released for the PSVR in 2018, which is to be understood as a prologue to the new "Gungrave G.O.R.E" by Iggymob and Prime Matter.

    Technically, "Gungrave G.O.R.E" is doing impressively well for an indie production. It runs very smoothly in performance mode (4K/60fps), the hit feedback is powerful, the video sequences are pretty and the levels are visually varied. And it's all accompanied by a driving electro-industrial soundtrack that perfectly suits the atmosphere of the game with its shrill jazz and rock influences.

    The bloody bullet ballet (like the PS2 predecessors) can be quite frustrating at times. Especially due to the fact that the checkpoints were distributed rather unfavorably. This is shown e.g. in the train stage, where you have to dodge signs and obstacles while fighting countless enemies at the same time. If you are thrown off the train, it means immediate game death - and that you have to start the entire passage from the beginning. In the later course of the game there are always such unfair passages.

    Gungrave G.O.R.E. offers dull but stylish old-school ballroom orgies that will certainly not appeal to everyone. The frustration factor is sometimes high and some design quirks are annoying, but the core gameplay of shooting, fighting and tactics has been implemented all the more. Anyone who, after a steep learning curve, masters the protagonist's skills and shoots himself into a "flow" will be rewarded with an "okay, one more round" feeling. Hopefully a potential successor won't be another 18 years in the future. Anime fans who like old-fashioned arcade shoot-outs should definitely take a look, despite the mixed reviews.

    The game rests on two iron pillars, the first thing you can see is how the developers loved Gungrave and tried to invest every cent in the game despite the average budget. The second is the gameplay itself and the combat system is a child's dream, because the Bible Epic is happening on the screen.
    The player seems to be dancing with weapons, two pistols, almost like Dante's, and his huge coffin on his back, allow the player to create complete chaos on the screen, because there are a lot of ranged attacks and it all looks mega spectacular and epic.
    The 2002 Gungrave anime is still remembered with warmth in my heart, as is the Ps2 game, and I was very surprised that G.O.R.E was associated with previous Gungrave works, thanks a lot to the developers for loving this iconic character and really looking forward to continuing the new one G.O.R.E, because the game is super and there are no direct analogues on the video game market right now.
    PS, I have already completed the game on XBOX Series X at 1000g ❤

    Why did you release a game worse than the PS2 series in 2022?
    This game gave me nothing but stress.
    Place a mine on the roof of the train.
    Play baseball on top of the container.
    Create pitfalls like in Dark Souls.
    Avoid beams like Resident Evil 4.
    I want Gungrave to be a cool rampage game.
    What is this?
    I can't believe it was made by someone who really loves Gungrave.
