    Metal: Hellsinger is an indie that no one who loves shooters, frantic games or rhythm games should miss out on, especially if they have already played works like the DOOM franchise before, as this game will steal their hearts with its song.

    I really found myself engrossed with Metal: Hellsinger, and the solid FPS gunplay paired with a challenging rhythm mechanic keeps you pretty engaged throughout. It’s a neat concept that certainly hasn’t worn out its welcome so far, and I’d certainly like to see it expanded upon in the future, so hopefully a sequel or DLC won’t be out of the question. Definitely check it out Metal: Hellsinger if any of this sounds intriguing, you won’t be disappointed.

    Metal Hellsinger is a slick and addictive rhythm FPS with style and attitude to spare. With shooter action that's heavily reminiscent of Bethesda's 2016 DOOM reboot mashed together with superbly well-realised rhythm game aspects that enhance the core combat experience, this is a fiendishly satisfying arcade game that sucks you right into its twisted hellscapes and refuses to let you go. Get ready for some super-sweaty Heavy Metal vengeance.

    In its way of transforming the fast FPS into a raging rhythm game, thanks to the support of an impeccable soundtrack, Metal: Hellsinger gave us a few hours of pure adrenaline. The gameplay loop is mastered, the instinctive handling and the multiple levels of difficulty allow you to create an à la carte experience. The fact remains that the content is a little too light, since we will complete the main campaign in 5 to 6 hours depending on the desired challenge. The challenges, however, allow you to extend the lifespan, but it is above all the interest in scoring and the desire to climb the world rankings that will allow you, or not, to play Metal: Hellsinger for more than 10 hours. As it is, it's still an experience to try if you like "Doom Like" and big guitar riffs.

    A hardcore heavy-metal shooter boasting a side order of rhythm with its brutal ultra-violence, Metal: Hellsinger is good fun, but you'll probably get a lot more out of it if you actually enjoy the music.

    If taken as a simple FPS, Metal: Hellsinger would be an average one, due to non-stellar graphics, short levels and repetitive boss fights. But add its heavy metal rhythm game gameplay to the mix, and you'll find yourselves captivated by the challenge of flawlessly executing every level, aiming to obtain the highest multiplier possible by hitting enemies following the great head-banging music tracks.

    Metal: Hellsinger enlists some all-star musical talent to bring its dream of metal-based FPS mayhem to life, but stumbles in finding its gameplay rhythm.

    i am not a huge fan of metal and rhythm games but this game is the exception. i love how the game combine action with rhythm and all songsi am not a huge fan of metal and rhythm games but this game is the exception. i love how the game combine action with rhythm and all songs especially "no tomorrow" are amazing. i finished the game and each time i listen the soundtracks in youtube, i want to play it again. i don't give a 10/10 because i think all the bosses are similar in appearance with a little change. i think that maybe the needed to add different bosses with different styles. i recommend this game to everyone.

The story itself is short yet it works but I often forget why I’m even doing it at times but it’s still a blast. The main character is like a female counterpart to Doomguy, silent but deadly.

    It has a couple of good maps but they all sort of feel the same, just with a different coat of paint, but they’re still great and fun to navigate. The enemies are fun and challenging at times, but not hard enough to make you want to quit, just enough so that when you respawn you’re still ready to kill.

    The few problems stem from the rather underwhelming bosses, they’re just too easy and don’t require much skill (I played on medium difficulty) and it was just, Shoot, Dash, Shoot till I won, if the bosses had more variation it would’ve been more fun.

    An overall solid title and considering it was from an Indie title, it outdoes some of the other recent FPS titles made by AAA Studios. If you have Gamepass, give this a try.

    I really liked this game, but it's not perfect.

    I wish the boss fights throughout were better. All of them underwhelmed outside of the final boss. I also wish the weapon varieties and rhythm patterns were more varied. The entire game seems to play at the exact same 'rhythm' no matter which weapon you use, and all weapons are made to work within that seemingly constant rhythm. More variety would've made the game more challenging and fun, IMO. The music, while very good, was a bit lacking in the first half of the game. The metal songs sound really generic, but it definitely picks up in the latter levels. Especially the final level, but again, I wish more of the game was like that final stage. It's worth playing, and overall it about met & maybe exceeded my expectations, but there is clear room for growth in a potential sequel.

    Could not find a good satisfying play rhythm and the rest is just bland and boring as F. Also seriously dislike games "meant" to be playedCould not find a good satisfying play rhythm and the rest is just bland and boring as F. Also seriously dislike games "meant" to be played with stupid distorted fisheye-lense FOVs (default) and mouse and WASD.

    Thank good for GamePass, I gave it an hour and then quickly uninstalled it. I'll probably check out the list of songs to see if I can make a playlist for workout or something.
