    If you're looking for an impressively challenging Metroidvania then Bookbound Brigade is a game that you'll definitely want to play.

    Bookbound Brigade is an enjoyable, colourful and quirky game. A good read, but maybe not quite a pageturner. [Issue#173, p.84]

    I really enjoyed Bookbound Brigade's humour, art style and world design but unfortunately, the unresponsive formation changes and bad map design really drag down its score. The characters are enjoyable and the gameplay, on the whole, is sound. Hopefully, after a patch to fix the control issues, I will return to find all its secrets. Until then I would wait for a sale and hopefully the fixes this game deserves.

    Bookbound Brigade feels less like a literary Avengers and more like a literary Suicide Squad. It simply has not done enough to justify itself. Strictly for diehard Metroidvania fans.
