    A furious and value stuffed effort, Mothergunship is one of the most exhilarating and satisfying shooters you can get on PS4 right now.

    An inspired new take on Doom style shooters, as seen through the prism of bullet hell shoot ‘em-ups and roguelikes.

    When Mothergunship is firing on all cylinders, it's a satisfying and thrilling shooter where it really counts. With an incredibly fun and never uninteresting gun-crafting mechanic, it certainly goes a long way with its clever hook and an endless flow of enemies to gun down.

    It’s an unassuming shooter where the only complexity comes in making your own guns out of bits and bobs you find dotted around on Archivist ships. That provides just enough complexity to keep you moving forwards, while the rest of your grey matter’s simply enjoying the absurd onslaught each fight presents. Simple, effective, cha.

    When played in small bursts, Mothergunship has the potential to be an extremely amusing experience.

    Putting together your own guns will provide you with hours of fun. After that you'll test your mettle against all sorts of alien scum in randomly generated levels which provides enough variety to last you quite a while. Overall, Mothergunship is a fine shooter with a couple of minor niggles; lack of force-feedback, cluttered menu's and the interruption of your flow when you need to recharge your weapon to mention a few.

    Mothergunship is more than the sum of its disparate parts, and definitely deserves your time. It’s a big silly mix of destruction, synths, and sci-fi and a lot of fun to play through.
