    Enter the Gungeon is a full-clip of awesome, loaded into a gun of perfection and fired onto the most interesting console.

    Games as good as Enter the Gungeon don’t come along very often. There’s so much to discover here that you’ll be playing this game for a long time. And you’ll still come back even after you see everything. Gungeon is the pinnacle of rogue-like design.

    Enter The Gungeon is a brilliantly tactile, endlessly replayable twin-stick roguelike that sits right up there with the very best indie games on Nintendo Switch. With satisfying combat, random levels, and an endless supply of inventive weapons, items and secrets, it's always a total joy to play. Yet another modern indie classic has found a natural home on Nintendo's console.

    Enter the Gungeon was a super-fun game back in 2016 and now, it's even better. So, if you still haven't played it and you have a fondness for roguelike twin-stick shooters, picking up a copy of this delightful package is a must. [Physical Edition]

    One third bullet hell, one third shoot 'em up, and one third roguelike, Enter the Gungeon is a magnificent blend of three genres that go together impressively well. The wide variety of guns keeps each playthrough feeling fresh, regardless of the character chosen, and the diverse enemy design is sure to keep players on their toes as they force their way through the Gungeon. There are some issues that rise from the randomness of it all, par for the course for a roguelike, but the fluid gameplay, massive weapon cache, and bullet-heavy atmosphere make Enter the Gungeon one incredibly endearing experience.
  7. 75
    Enter the Gungeon can be brutal. However, you’ll find yourself laughing at its quirky dialogue and obviously ridiculous weapons, and you’ll dust yourself off and jump back in. And each time, you get a little bit better, get a little bit farther, discover a secret area on the map, and prepare to die — just one more time.

    The only issue - some lags while fighting few bosses with a lot of bullets in the air. Hope it will be fixed with patches.

    I’ve put more time into this game than Zelda. I bought it to try and ended up becoming obsessed with it. Must play.

    Ok yeah, so seriously, just buy it on a computer rather, you’ll get use to a controller (after you turn on aim assist) Otherwise a great game, but the switch just isn’t the best for it.

While I find the item luck progression in this game to be quite substantial, even more-so than say Binding of Isaac, it is still a very fun game, and that item luck can be quite fun with some ridiculous combinations possible. I think the best part is that it's so easy to just pick up and play regardless of skill level, making it a great game to play with friends. Expand

Due to the lack of content, such as character variety, weapon availability, and the repetitive grind. This game was made to fight against you, too much so that it ruins the games experience. This game is harsh in the sense that it punishes mistakes rather then rewarding success, and that hinders on the fun factor that this game lacks.

    With the new update the game did get a little better, answering a really needed prayer of checkpoints between floors, yet still not enough has been changed to have me change the rating I've given the game, as it is still lackluster, and repetitive the moment I pick up the controller.
