    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.

    Pros
    +pixel art is great. A joy to look at
    +weapons you can find are super fun! so much verity!
    +muscle memory happens fast for the default control setup.
    +A fun, hard, but rewarding rouge-like. Easy to learn, and you wont get bast the first floor without skill and practice. which is a good thing because you can feel yourself get better each run

    Cons
    -long load times on switch
    -doesn't explain much beyond the basic controls. you will need to look some things from time to time
    -wouldn't recommend as someones first rouge-like game, as the difficulty is a bit much if you aren't familiar with the genre

    Both compelling and infuriatingly difficult, Enter the Gungeon offers hours of frantic bullet hell fun.

    Enter the Gungeon perhaps killed the rogue-like/lite genre for me. Due to the lack of content, such as character variety, weapon availability,Enter the Gungeon perhaps killed the rogue-like/lite genre for me. 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.
