    Enter The Gungeon is nigh-on perfect. The hits are fine, the gunplay is wonderful, the animation and designs are fantastic, and it really needs to be picked up and played by anybody who isn’t looking for something really casual.

    If you enjoyed any other bullet hell rogue-likes, particularly Nuclear Throne or Binding of Isaac, I can’t recommend Enter the Gungeon enough. It has a few elements that some would consider design flaws, but these are easy to overlook when you step back and look at the whole picture and what is really being offered her: mayhem on a silver platter.

    Overall, Enter the Gungeon was worth the wait for Xbox One owners. The title is a lot of fun and remains that way despite the challenge it poses. If you love games like Rogue Legacy and Crypt of the Necrodancer, then this is the game for you. However, if you’re new to the roguelike genre, this is also a great starting point which will teach you well.

    With an awesome action rogue like gameplay and a lot of content and secrets to discover, Enter The Gungeon is one of the most successful games published by Devolver Digital.

    A year ago on PlayStation 4 this was a surprise hit. The simple but thought-through concept still works, though and makes this exhilarating cocktail of dungeon crawler, dualstick-action and bullet hell blast.

    Do not waste you ammo on Enter the Gungeon, because hundreds of enemies will cross your path through endless dungeons. With an original aesthetic pixel art, equip yourself with your best weapons to face a frenetic and addictive game rhythm in which the fun is guaranteed.

    Despite playing for hours on end I never got particularly good at Enter the Gungeon, but that doesn't mean I didn't thoroughly enjoy my time with it. It's great as a top-down shooter, even if it's just average as a roguelike. Pairing the frustration of bullet hell with the frustration of a random number generator doesn't always yield results, but when the stars align there's just something magical about it.

    You are gonna hate this game, you are gonna feel done, you are gonna unistall it and the refund it, or well just use game-pass.

    You are be so angry you are gonna do bad at work, you will be forever haunted.

    But 5 months later you will download it again,and play and again, until you repeat the same.

    And this cycle will continue again,and again, and again, for 2 years this game will be your nightmare, your haunted game.

    But the you will finish it and say: Goddamn, this game is **** good.

    Because it **** is.

There areThis game is a must play if you like the rogue like genre. The controls are very responsive. The game really shines in it's guns. There are well over 100+ guns and items. Most of them are puns or a reference. The enemies are varied enough that it doesn't get repetitive. Bosses are always a joy to fight. The one complaint I have is challenge mode is a bit unbalanced right now. But overall the game is one of my favorite games so far this year. I have already enjoyed it for over 200+ hours and will continue to do so for awhile. Expand

    This game is one if the best dungeon crawlers I've played. It has everything want from challenging gameplay to the NPCS you unlock throughThis game is one if the best dungeon crawlers I've played. It has everything want from challenging gameplay to the NPCS you unlock through your playthrough. The core gameplay is very fun with the variety of enemy's. You have a limited amount of ways to fight which are a dodge roll and a blank. This means you can focus on getting good instead of trying to learn all of the controls. There are absolutely tons of guns. I nearly always find a new gun every playthrough after 15 hours of playing. There's everything from your basic AK 47 to a water gun and Mailbox shooter. That is a feature that makes you want to keep playing. Also every floor in the gungeon has new enemy's you'll encounter that have different attacking patterns you'll need to learn. Theres a shop on every floor that you can buy new guns and charms to help you, with the coins you collect from killing monsters. The bosses at the end of each floor are likely to end your run but are very fun and the climax of that floor. The most important thing about a dungeon crawler I think, is replay value. Enter the Gungeon definitely has that as theres NPCS trapped in the Gungeon you need to save that open shops or help you in your future runs. You can fix an elevator to skip floors and buy new charms and guns to find if there weren't enough already. There may o ly be 5 floors (not including secret ones) in the game but the it takes a while to get there and you'll be finding yourself playing even after you do. A must play game at a relatively cheap price. Expand

It's a twin-stick shooter, guys... just fire the shot wherever we're pointing. At the very least, it should be an option to set it up how you like. Inexcusably lazy coding. Expand

The mainOne of the most unfun games in the hideously overrated rogue lite genre. The bullet hell aspects of the game are at the forefront. The main reason you die is because the game throws so much at you that the visual chaos is non stop in combat. Not only that, but the floors go on for faaaaaaaaaar too long, making going through this game feel like an absolute chore. The different weapons are pretty cool, but there's hardly any fun synergies to be had here, not that I've seen at least. Different passive power ups hardly seem to matter and the the try-hard references to other media is laughable at best. This genre overall has tons of problems, but this game absolutely pales in comparison to a game like Binding of Isaac. If you want a rogue lite that actually has fun power ups and awesome possibilities, go for that one. Gungeon is better left in the trash where it belongs. Expand

    L'étron indé du dimanche (mais il n'est jouable que le mercredi soir, de préférence pendant un dîner) est une grosse merde particulièrementL'étron indé du dimanche (mais il n'est jouable que le mercredi soir, de préférence pendant un dîner) est une grosse merde particulièrement infâme qui agresse sans cesse la rétine avec ses 16 couleurs qui se battent en duel et ses pixels gros comme la main qui vous regardent sans sourciller...

    C'est évidemment en 2D et à faire mourir de honte une Megadrive tellement c'est immonde à tenter de regarder... quant à y jouer, quelle horreur, quelle infamie, quelle déchéance que ce sous-produit opportuniste qui vise (évidemment) à la fois un public rétron et désoeuvré, en perte de repères. Tant que j'y suis, les bruitages sont aussi dégueulasses que le reste et boulottés avec un Bontempi des années 80.

    En dehors de ça, c'est une daube à farmer au hasard et surtout à recommencer jusqu'à plus soif au vu de la difficulté placée très haut pour appâter le chaland à forte tendance masochiste : une façon de meubler le vide intersidéral de ce non-jeu et pure insulte numérique et pas ludique pour un euro.
