    A return to gaming's roots. The best launch title for PS4 bar none.

    Another expertly produced retro-inspired shooter from Housemarque, Resogun gives players an immensely impressive level of depth, challenge, replayability, and graphical prowess that stands as one of the best ways to be introduced to the recently launched PlayStation 4.

    Housemarque did it again. Resogun is a brilliant shooter with lots under its hood: great visuals, stunning gameplay and rich personality. If only it had more levels.

    Much like Geometry Wars was for the Xbox 360, it’s an extremely fun and addictive arcade shoot-em-up that is actually more worth your time than any of the hotly anticipated full-priced launch titles.

    Simultaneously tense and strangely meditative. [Feb 2014, p.72]

    It’s gorgeous; Resogun draws on its host hardware’s graphical capabilities to make you feel like the most powerful entity in the room.

    Resogun does everything it promises, and not a a bit more. It has gorgeous graphics and solid skill-based gameplay, with valuable online co-op support and just enough content to keep things interesting for a while.

    Actually one of the best on the PS4 and a PS4 exclusive, the game is beautiful with explosions and voxels or whatever they're called all overActually one of the best on the PS4 and a PS4 exclusive, the game is beautiful with explosions and voxels or whatever they're called all over the screen.

    Game is simple, Save the humans is your only objective but on the hardest difficulty, the game can get ridiculously hard. Game has the option of Co-op too

    When I first saw this game I instantly thought of the obvious comparison: Galaga. I loved playing Galaga but it couldn't hold my attentionWhen I first saw this game I instantly thought of the obvious comparison: Galaga. I loved playing Galaga but it couldn't hold my attention past maybe the first 2 levels. This game however, held my attention for much, much longer. scales very well with each level and each difficulty setting. Saving the humans is a cool addition to mindlessly flying around and shooting enemy ships. Nice graphics and sounds as well. Expand

It's very good at what it does and there's no denying it's one of the best shump's in awhile. I got it for free with plus so that factored in to my score but would I have bought the game for it's full price? Probably. It's easily the best PSN game on the PS4 right now but that's not saying alot. This game would definitely benefit from waiting till more PSN games come out to challenge it on the market but, till then, this is a very fun game. Expand

    I must say that for a side scroller that this game is pretty fun. I played on Veteran and it was crazy... The amount of enemies attack you allI must say that for a side scroller that this game is pretty fun. I played on Veteran and it was crazy... The amount of enemies attack you all at once will get your heart going, quick reflexes and using your tools wisely like boost, overdrive and bombs are fun..... It's very hard if you play on tougher difficulty and the trophies are fun to get.. I platinumed the game and was proud of myself..

    My only problem with the game would be sometimes there is so much going on,on the screen that out of nowhere a bullet or something hits you and you cant see it through all the explosions and since this is a one hit kill game it can get frustrating, especially if you are trying to beat the game without losing all your lives.... Also sometimes when you are trying to get your multiplier up you can lose it from there being no enemies on the screen.. The game will have like 400 enemies attacking you at one time and the next minute there may not be any and it doesn't take long before your multiplier resets to 1.00.... Or it could be I just suck at getting my multiplier up.lol..

    The game is short with 5 levels but there is a lot of replayability especially if you are a trophy hunter. There are also leaderboards and 3 different ships to try with different strengths and weaknesses.

    I suggest everyone to at least give it a try.. I didn't think I was going to like this game before I tried it and I am glade I did because it is awesome..

    while this game features some kickass music, that's pretty much all it's got going for it. being that this is an arcade type game, there's nowhile this game features some kickass music, that's pretty much all it's got going for it. being that this is an arcade type game, there's no real story, the objective is to save all the humans. the gameplay, whic is the most important aspect of this type of game, is alright at best, and be incredibly boring at times.i got it for free so i can't complain too much, however this game is not worth paying for at all.
