    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. All of my problems can be summed up with Bullet Hell. The area makes you fight SO many overpowered enemies and ends off with a very powerful boss, THEN the game tells you to "git gud" in this toxic (and I hate to say this) Dark Souls community manner and it's at its best when you're actually fighting in a fair area, however, giving this game a 10? Nah, it just has too many dumb things in it. Is it bad? No. Is it unfair sometimes? Hell yes. Expand

I enjoyed the gun variety, and it seems like new weapons and items unlock quickly for new players. The four gungeoneers add a little bit of variety to gameplay, but they're all about the same. The big drawback is the game is not very well optimized for Switch with some performance/framerate issues and long load times for a pixel-art game.

Game load times are a bit long. The controls need to be reassigned and after several changes they still don't feel right (part of the blame belongs to the comfort of the Switch). This game is very challenging, paired with the random level designs, random enemies, and random boss encounters, makes using trial and error not an option. Sometimes as you enter the next room the enemies are right there ready to greet you with a bullet to the face, other times nobody is home. I never got past the first boss. In the five attempts I encountered Bullet King twice and Gatling Gull thrice. Extra hearts or extra lives and/or quicker reload times would have made this playable for me. I did not play Co-Op mode. Maybe Co-Op mode would have made it enjoyable or easier to play. Someone with more skill and more time could play and score this positively. I wish, I had my money back.
    For comparison I've finished Axiom Verge in 20 hours, 74% Item, and 92% Map. And Celeste 14 hours without attempting to get strawberries or B-sides.
