    Enter the Gungeon is a fantastic game that continues to offer surprises after hours and hours into the experience. The game feels satisfying to play, and gives you the tools to succeed, and it is up to you to master the skills. The crazy weapons, enemies, and bosses all lead to an experience that is worth playing, even if you aren’t a fan of the genre.

    Enter the Gungeon is one of the most polished games I’ve ever played, especially considering the multitude of items that are available. Just when I thought that the rogue-like genre had been done to death, this game comes along and completely turns me around. I’m not sure I’ll ever master the Gungeon, but I’m not sure if I’ll ever want to leave, either.

    Dodge Roll has created an excellent game with Enter The Gungeon. It's extremely difficult, but equally rewarding.

    Enter the Gungeon offers a new way to understand the rogue-like games, being more dependent on the player skill than focusing on the item drops. It has perfect gunplay and a cute game design, and even if it's not as good as The Binding of Isaac or Nuclear Throne, it comes close to them.

    Enter the Gungeon is another in a long line of fantastic roguelikes.

    A fun and colorful action game full of adrenaline and humor. But start from scratch when you die and the accumulation of enemies in some rooms can ruin the experience.

    Overall I had a great experience playing this game despite the urge to rage quit from time to time, which is to be expected with a game such as Enter the Gungeon. This is a great little indie title with great elements of combat and exploration.

I really do not like an easy game and if you are like me this game is going to be super addictive and fun. The different kind of weapons are incredibly fun to play with and i am seeing that this game has a lot of replay value because you want to see new guns and super hard bosses. 8 hours and i am not even getting a bit bored. For me is a solid 10/10. Music: great, variety: amazing, fun: a lot, difficulty: extreme and graphics: i really love the arcade graphic style. Expand

The music is appropriately chosen and sound effects are intense. It's easy to pick up and get into, and challenging and fun to master.

    The game does a great job of being challenging without ever feeling impossible. The controls are tight and you feel agile.

    I truly love this game, it has a certain charm that other games of this sort lack. I love the inclusion of local co-op, but my biggest complaint is no online multiplayer. While certainly a daunting task to engineer from an indy developer, it would absolutely be 100% worth it.

You clear rooms of enemies, pick up new guns and items, and keep doing so until you've won. It's a good game, there's a huge amount of guns and items, the art style is great, and the gameplay is fun. However, there's a bit too much emphasis on RNG, runs will often be ruined early on because the game will toss garbage guns and items at you, this has been corrected a bit in updates, but the problem still persist. I'd give it a 7 pre updates, an 8 currently. Expand

I felt quite often, the game punishesGreat Game, but unfortunately very hard and even more unfortunate: VERY unbalanced procedural settings. I felt quite often, the game punishes me!? In the need of hearts, I got tons of keys for chests. Played perfectly, no damage at all, now I got hearts and couldn't even use one of them. Some rooms are so crazy filled with enemies, that avoiding getting hit is impossible, while others are just a joke in terms of challenge. The effort and frustration of repeating levels from the scratch, just to get deeper is tremendous, even so the unlocking of shortcuts! I found this unbalanced as well, all to hard and unfair sometimes in my opinion.

    I do love the gameplay, the need graphics and style and the entire setting, but couldn't even finishing the game because of the difficulty level and/or issues mentioned above. So, 1 point less for bad random generation, 1 less for extremely high difficulty and another 1 less, because I just couldn't finish the game. And of course last is a bit unfair, but it's my personal opinion, so indulge, because I'm frustrated, getting my ass kicked by a game... ;)

    Giving this a 6 because I initially had fun with it.

    In the beginning, I was able to improve marginally, was having fun with the mechanics and unlocked weapons. Everything was moving forward nicely.......

    As a brief aside, not sure why the PC guys get a crosshairs, and I get to fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to aiming.....

    My #2 issue is the war of attrition that every run inevitably becomes. For instance, my last run was going great- I had flawlessly beaten the first 2 bosses and was rolling towards floor three with 5 full hearts and 2 armor pieces. going well right? well, until uber-cheap wave spawns shredded me down to 2 hearts by the boss room AND the shop was locked (no keys). Which brings me to issue #1:

    The item drops are TOO rare, and in no run is this never NOT an issue. The game punishes you for playing well. Dodge Roll games could've taken a page from BOI and racheted up the item drops just enough to help players NOT feel consistently ripped off when in the midst of a strong run. This will probably ultimately be the thing that makes me stop playing.

    Dodgerolling is a neat mechanic, until the character leaps off in the opposite direction one too many times, leading to a catastrophe that eats your ass for 2 full hearts because the wave spawn instantly backed you into a tight corner. This isn't an issue with the gameplay, as the random spawns / generations make it impossible to not take cheap damage from time to time. The real issue is enduring this 2 or 3 times over the course of a floor that has made it impossible for you to acquire resources (HENCE MY MAIN ISSUE WITH THE RARITY OF ITEM DROPS) that will counteract this phenomenon.

    DISCLAIMER: I do still get the feeling that I just suck, as I have made it to the Dragun 3 times, but I'm not in any kind of shape to study it's patterns because of the previously mentioned war of attrition. Perhaps I'm not working towards unlocking the right things that will ease my future runs slightly.....

    Again, due to the inherent cheapness coupled with the stingy item drops I can't rate this over 6 at this time. It's not a badly programmed game and can be fun in moderation, but if dodge roll were smart they'd up made item drops more common. I doubt I'm the only player who's temper typically reaches critical mass after a few runs.
