While BPM: Bullets Per Minute doesn’t excel as a rogue-like, its rhythm-based shooting adds enough spice to carry the experience. It successfully blends its killer audio with frenetic gameplay to create the euphoric feeling of play it was after. It still lacks the refinement of both Doom and its modern musical contemporaries, but there’s no denying it’s an incredibly visceral, heart-pounding experience.
BPM is a a combination of great ideas and for the most part it nails what it’s going for. The melding of the intense FPS combat set to the beat of metal makes for some really great moments. Unfortunately, the roguelike and RNG aspects that rule the game need a bit of work. Also, the art design could use a bit of rethinking. However, when it all works together and the RNG god gives you some love, it is a symphony of destruction.
I appreciate BPM’s gloomy atmosphere, but would it really kill to have given the place a little lick of paint here and there? If heavy metal has you running for the hills, then BPM: Bullets Per Minute won’t convert you. But for everyone else, this is an adrenaline fuelled heavy-metal ride that you’d be daft to miss.
