    My Friend Pedro on Xbox One is a gloriously violent, silly and, ultimately, fun game. Because the experience is so short it doesn’t give itself time to become irrelevant or boring, and so we are gifted this little gem of fun that can just be enjoyed.

    My Friend Pedro is an innovative platform game that wastes stunts and action, which has detailed and worked scenarios and a smell of cyberpunk and 'dementia' everywhere. Pedro manages to keep that 'good vibes' that his creators wanted to transmit and that, combined with the whole game, make it a perfect experience to introduce new players in the genre and also for the already veteran, although perhaps a little short in terms of duration.

    Like a popcorn popping Hollywood blockbuster, My Friend Pedro offers a bullet-bonanza ballet that’s hard to ignore thanks to its slick moves, combining a great sense of fast food action gameplay that escalates in challenge as you grow accustomed to the many flourishes it adds throughout. Regrettably the characterisation and story falls short, but in all likelihood these fundamentals won’t matter if you’re looking for an action-packed thrill ride, and boy does My Friend Pedro offer that in spades. If you demand something more in-depth or intricate you won’t find it here, but everyone else will find that My Friend Pedro scratches an impulsive itch that’s able to impress with its penchant for grace and unabashed style.

    What My Friend Pedro does really well is offer a sense of variety in the weapons, the ways you can kill and the level design. While some missions may be more fun than others, no level is quite the same as the last. This makes every new encounter feel fresh and exciting. The ability to tackle each battle in a multitude of different ways means you’ll find yourself returning time and time again to see how much better you can clear them and achieve a higher final score.

All the weapons you use are (while basic) fun and really responsive. What makes this even better is how you traverse the levels so easily. It’s always your fault for not understanding the situation and how to make it through quickly and without taking damage. It can be a bit unfair at times but this is the exception, not the rule. Because of how good it is, almost all the levels feel incredibly replayable.
    •I’d say there’s one set of levels I wasn’t a huge fan of, but otherwise all of them are really good and well thought out. There aren’t many huge standouts aside from the endings to each section, and even still those aren’t totally incredible, but they’re definitely fun and different enough to distinguish them.
    •The story is ok. I wouldn’t call it bad, but it’s predictable and basic. Dialogue is fine, too. Some good lines here and there.
    •Game looks great for what it is. As in, you can see what’s going on at all times on top of a nice looking art style. Works really well.

    Overall: Short-ish game filled with some really fun gameplay and well thought out mechanics and levels. A few duds in there but definitely worth the time (and then some for replaying levels).

You play as an unnamed, and un-voiced protagonist, being told what to do by a Banana? That's Right, Pedro the Banana. The object of My Friend Pedro is to blast your way through all the enemies. The way you get to do this is the treat! During the game, you get to use gratuitous amounts of bullet time, and impressive (yet awkward during certain moments) acrobatics to flip, spin, twist, and even aim two different directions to dispatch your adversaries. You can kick knives out of the air at your opponents, or toss a frying pan in the air and ricochet bullets around obstacles. The games physics, mixed with the slow-mo effect of the bullet-time make you feel like an unstoppable Badass, and look like one too! The weapon variety is a bit slim, but each weapon has it's best use, and you use them all. The Story is nearly not there, and there aren't many memorable characters either, but none of that detracts from the action. Most of the "humor" feels forced but is a few times good for a chuckle to break up the gunfire. Even without bringing a story to the table, My Friend Pedro will keep you blasting away. On the easier difficulty, you can just press your way through most of it, but if you pump that difficulty up, each battle feels deep and challenging! This game does exactly what it set out to do, allow you to be a badass that can twist flip through a window and shoot 4 enemies before landing. Incredibly fun shooter, and will make a great addition to any bullet-time fan's Collection! Expand

    je n'ai pas de souvenir mémorable de ce jeu et je le prend comme un jeu d'appoint qui a su faire le taff et me divertir le temps que cela a duré

    Toujours est-il que c'est un jeu à deux balles (en l'occurrence un étron indé) qui a l'allure d'un navet pas frais et la tête dans les choux, pour ne pas dire dans le fion. Une sorte de "jeu" de tir très con et très répétitif en deux dés et demi avec le stick droit pour diriger les tirs : imprécis et navrant. Et pathétique et déjà vu.

    C'est donc rapidement ennuyeux et totalement dispensable mais non recyclable, car on ne voit pas en quoi on pourrait recycler cette sous-connerie de pseudo-jeu à la con. Alors direction la poubelle verte, prière de bien emballer et fermer le sac de cette merde : ah si seulement, on pouvait confiner la connerie !
