    Hands down, Door Kickers: Action Squad is one of the best games to come to the Switch this year. Every inch is well-designed and smartly tuned, it stays challenging (but fair!) and fresh from start to finish, and there’s enough meat on its bones to satisfy anyone. It even does co-op, to boot. Simply put, it is the total package and a must-buy for any Switch owner craving 2D action.

    Experiment with the different player characters and get on board with the surprising tactical depth, you'll find there's a lot more to it than meets the night vision body-cam.

    SWAT missions on speed: this is visceral 2D-action surprising with versatile equipment choices – best player cooperatively.

    Door Kickers: Action Squad is an entirely serviceable 2D shooter that has a lot to offer for those looking for that type of gameplay loop, but it’s not really an experience to remember. I can see fans of the genre enjoying a couple of levels at a time, playing in bite-sized chunks. However, even though the gameplay is decent, Door Kickers: Action Squad is lacking overall a lot of what makes a smaller game stand out. Without a story or interesting hook to keep you around, Door Kickers: Action Squad is a title you’re probably going to like instead of love.

    It's a nice side scrolling action-shooter pixel game. Levels are unique and intense, with some mild humor interspaced within.

    one of the most enjoyable experiences lately! Alot of fun if you share the switch and play in co-op.

    You NEED to grab a friend and play this in coop. Shoot doors, shoot badguys, shoot barrels, shoot zombies, shoot hostages. Whoops not that last one.
