    Deep Rock Galactic on Xbox One is a game with obvious appeal. It is punchy, funny and a blast with friends. The environments and mission structures do become a bit repetitive but the moment to moment gameplay is fantastic. If you are looking for a “blow off steam” game to play with friends, Deep Rock Galactic has you covered.

Get some friends, play this game, feel the intensity, enjoy! Upgraded score from 9 to 10 with the continually add content!

    Starship Troopers in the Mines of Moria! That's the best way I can describe this game. A completely destructible environment with mining and swarms of bugs. I've played with 2, 3 and 4 friends. Every experience was great. If you don't believe me, grab a friend and try the 2-hour free trial.

    CoOp means something in this game. if you don't effectively work together you will die.

    Based on the 5 hours, I have played since buying the game yesterday I'd say they have a hit on their hands. keep up the good work.

    We have another addition to the fantastic game preview program on Xbox One and it comes in the way of co-op shooter Deep Rock Galactic, and IWe have another addition to the fantastic game preview program on Xbox One and it comes in the way of co-op shooter Deep Rock Galactic, and I must admit it surprised me quite a lot. The main reason why it surprised me is because it hardly suffers with any problems already and for me it’s the best game that has entered the preview program so far. The gameplay is awesome and when you have a group of friends it’s an incredible amount of fun. Everything about the gameplay feels fast and fluid and there is a decent set of mechanics in play at the same time. When these mechanics combine together you see the game in all its glory and it’s pretty good to say the least. The content that is avaliable so far is very good and will keep you satisfied for quite a while, but it does definitely need more in the coming months to stop it from going stale. It won’t go stale quickly though because the game is already blessed with quite a bit of variety. The variety is mainly found in the classes and weapons you can use and playing as each different class was very fun and at the same time very addictive as well. The customisation could do with a bit more especially on the load-outs, but to be honest this is only a minor problem and I’m sure they will add more as we move forward. The controls which are very important in a game of this ilk are pretty much flawless. Everything feels great and the guns definitely pack a punch and most important of all they’ve made the controls feel tight and responsive throughout, which is great. Technically the game holds up really and despite a few issues every now and then for the most part things run smoothly which is way more than you can ask from a game that is in its very early stages in the preview program. The presentation side of the game tickled my fancy right from the get go. Visually the game looks beautiful and it feels alive at all times. The sound design also makes the game come alive and it keeps things ticking along nicely. At the end of the day I can’t wait to see Deep Rock Galactic grow in the preview program and without a doubt it’s going to get bigger and better which is going to be awesome considering it’s already very good now. If you’ve never paid for a game that’s in the preview program yet then I fully recommend you make this game your first purchase because its clear that the developers have been listening to the gamers and I can see this game being relevant for quite a while.
