    Although it features simple gameplay at its core, Supermarket Shriek offers tons of rewarding challenges that are great fun to master.

    Not quite the GOAT, perhaps, but definitely very entertaining in multiplayer. [Issue#181, p.77]

    One of the weirdest concepts for a videogame I have ever seen, but it somehow works. While the later levels can get infuriatingly challenging compared to the earlier ones, Supermarket Shriek has a great selection of game modes, a hilarious visual style, and excellent level design that had me consistently applauding the developer.

    Supermarket Shriek has enough varied content to keep you entertained for a few hours at a time, and although its control scheme is fairly hit and miss and tends to annoy, this is one kart racer you shouldn’t pass by. It’s outlandish, it’s crazy, and it’s relatively daft, but then, that’s the whole point. This game doesn’t take itself seriously at all, it merely wants you to sit back and enjoy, and despite its faults, it achieves what it set out to accomplish.

    Despite some annoyances with the repetitive courses, Supermarket Shriek is a joy to play with a friend. Goofy stages, an absurd concept and just a general sense of fun are more than enough to make Supermarket Shriek a solid co-op party game.

    Supermarket Shriek's difficulty curve does a good job of easing you in gently and it never became too overbearing. I didn’t know anything atSupermarket Shriek's difficulty curve does a good job of easing you in gently and it never became too overbearing. I didn’t know anything at all about Supermarket Shriek before its E3 surprise release on the Xbox One and it’s very rare to be surprised in the world of gaming these days. Supermarket Shriek is definitely unique, and if you play the game in short sessions you’ll find this shopping kart racer to offer you a lot of fun and enjoyment for what it does have to offer. Thankfully, frustration doesn’t play a big part of your adventure because it does a very good job of keeping things simple to understand and control and it also features a difficulty curve that progresses nicely though it does get challenging on occasion it never becomes overbearing which in turn makes you want to continue to play. Supermarket Shriek's content has a solid amount for you to play through and there’s enough variety within this content to keep things fresh and interesting, despite the usual bit of grinding. In terms of problems the disappointing co-op and the occasional repetitiveness that sometimes can occur there's not too much more wrong with the game. Supermarket Shriek never takes itself too seriously and it does what it sets out to do very well and that is to deliver fun and enjoyment during your time with it. A fun game for the price of admission. Expand

    L'indé du jour est britannique et un exemple, je suppose, assez frappant de l'humour d'outre-manche... un jeu que n'aurait pas renié BennyL'indé du jour est britannique et un exemple, je suppose, assez frappant de l'humour d'outre-manche... un jeu que n'aurait pas renié Benny Hill puisqu'il consiste à diriger un caddy dans les allées d'un supermarché... "l'équipage" est composé d'un gogol et... d'une chèvre.

    Ce sont les cris de l'un et l'une qui "propulsent" le caddy d'où le maniement gogol qui en résulte : la gâchette gauche pour tourner à gauche, la droite pour tourner à droite ; les deux en même temps pour avancer tout droit... autant dire que ce n'est pas une sinécure de "diriger" le chariot qui se gauffre alors régulièrement comme une otarie bourrée dans les rayons... Le tout est accompagné d'une petite musique gogole, comme il se doit.

    Signalons néanmoins que le jeu n'est pas si vilain (bien qu'il soit en 16 couleurs) et intégralement proposé en... 3 dimensions ! ce qui n'est si courant dans le monde merdveilleux des daubes indés ! Evidemment, ça peut faire sourire, selon la tolérance de tout un chacun à l'humour rosbif gogolien... mais pas très longtemps.

    On se rend vite compte que c'est injouable et que c'est ultra débile. Si les contrôles avaient été normaux, alors peut-être que... mais ce n'est pas le cas. 1/10 pour l'effort.
