    Crypt of the NecroDancer is a fantastic game and I’m ecstatic that it’s finally on Xbox One. While it might not be the best-looking adventure out there, it’s still one of the most unique games that I recommend you play. The rhythm-based gameplay pushes you and while it can be quite difficult in the beginning, it’s hard not to enjoy it even then.

    The only thing holding NecroDancer back from being a perfect game is the difficulty of playing as some characters. But don't let the difficulty dissuade you – rhythm role-playing games simply don't get any better than this.

    It has been more than two years when I first stepped on the disco light panels of the musical dungeons of the NecroDancer. And I still enjoy it thoroughly. It was and still is an extraordinary hybrid of dungeon crawling and rhythmic strategy.

    Crypt of the NecroDancer separates itself from other roguelikes thanks to the rhythmic beat gameplay and the variety of content available for players to mess around with. The games soundtrack will keep you playing and coming back to the game so that you can hear that one particular track again. The level by level exploration of the game is fun once players get used to the beat of the game. There is a lot to like with Crypt of the NecroDancer and most players will find some aspect of the game to get hooked on.

    Considering the combination of the two genres that make up the game, Crypt Of The NecroDancer will certainly not be for everyone. With a great and varied soundtrack, there's at least one choice to suit your tastes. The gratifying gameplay offers a real feeling that it is the player's skill that has persevered over all obstacles and there are plenty of modes to occupy your time. The punishing difficulty may put off newcomers to the genre, but those who enjoy rhythm games or roguelikes may well find a new obsession here... just be ready to die a lot.

    This kind of crypt is not exactly the place to mourn the dead, the incredible OST will make everything come to life and move all your dead body with the beat of the music. Crypt of the Necrodancer is a roguelike game that will make us immersed in a story with fantastic gameplay, but it's not recommended for players less experienced in the genre.
