    My Friend Pedro is an addictive experience and a mesmerising shoot-em-up that, though failing to deliver a good story, takes you on a violent ballet filled with blood, bullets and bananas…There is plenty of content packed into the game’s 5-hour playtime, with a huge opening for possible DLC and easy ways for players to compete with each other via leaderboards.

    It’s a pretty decent price for the fun that is to be had. In the end… you are just one man and his banana… and maybe that’s all you really need.

    My Friend Pedro excels at one thing: being a jaw-dropping action game that rewards creativity and thinking fast. Its world and story may fall a little bit short, but the beauty of its gameplay take the front seat in this experience and never disappoints.

    Even with an underwhelming final third and a paper-thin plot holding it back, My Friend Pedro is a fruity and exhilarating ride.

    Every shootout is an opportunity to execute a thoroughly balletic performance of sorts.

    A fun and fast-paced shooter that delights through its excessive presentation and well-timed humour. Even though the environments lack a little in diversity and the controls can be a little fidgety from time to time, My Friend Pedro delivers an entertaining package with addicting and motivating gameplay.

    Even though My Friend Pedro falters when it strays the furthest from the action-movie ideal of its premise most of the time you’re still a stone-cold killer with a suite of guns and a knack for shooting at bad dudes whilst upside down spinning in mid-air.

    At first it wasn't good, and at the end I wanted to do more and more...
    I liked the cool ending. I recommend it.

    Really fun and creative to start. Falls off really hard in the second half. Level design worse. Escalation/puzzles makes it worse.

    Amazing fun game

    Fast gameplay and kind of crazy although, theres only around 9 hours of gameplay.
