Dead Cells is rewarding in its flexibility in a way few games are. Each easily digestible run through its beautifully detailed and shifting levels instills a feeling of discovery and familiarity. It goads you to push the limits of your ability, and mercilessly crushes you when you get too comfortable.

Dead Cells is a masterpiece. It is the marriage and apotheosis of decades of Metroidvania design and the surging popularity of difficult Roguelike games. It is exquisite in all ways. It looks phenomenal. It plays like a dream. It makes you want to keep coming back even when you fail.

To be straight with you, I had to really plumb the depths of my critical mind to scrounge up those dings. They are problems, don't get me wrong. They just can't come close to dimming the pleasure of this fast, fluid experience. Dead Cells may be the most fun I've had in a game all year.

The field of indie roguelike Metroidvanias is littered with competition, but Dead Cells stands out by focusing on movement and combat. None of its peers feel as good in their moment-to-moment play. The controls are tight, the movement is fluid, and the combat has a real weight to it. Once you get into it, Dead Cells is about this unique state of combat flow, where you're moving, dodging, and killing your way to the end at high-speed.

Even so, perseverance has its rewards. With experience comes knowledge of which weapons and encounters to prioritise, which routes to take, and how to get back to those tricky boss battles faster. When it all starts to come together, frustration fades and your love affair with Dead Cells' phenomenal fundamentals can start all over again.

Dead Cells is fast-paced, slick, action-packed and pitched just right in terms of difficulty. This is paired with a ridiculously addictive upgrade loop and drool-worthy animations, combining to deliver a roguelike which can stand tall alongside greats like Spelunky.

It stalls progress in the mid-game a bit and can lead to a feeling of grinding your wheels. Besides that, though, Dead Cells is a phenomenal effort to blend together some very disparate genres into a tight, cohesive whole. It's one of the better examples of how to remix ideas without losing their individual strengths.

A beautiful, challenging game that is supremely polished in every area. A fantastic blend of tactical combat mixed with metroidvania style progression. Combined with an interesting and very quirky setting makes it a compelling package overall.

Simply put, Dead Cells blew us away with its bleak world and relentless combat. The mechanics work very well together, and the whole package feels polished and balanced. Sure you have to start over time and time again, but for us, that wasn't a negative. Every new run might offer a blueprint to a new and exotic weapon or item, gear which can help during later tries.

Es un juego tan grande, con tantos contenidos, tan bien diseñado y estudiado, con una jugabilidad tan adictiva y con un apartado audiovisual tan atractivo que nos resulta imposible cansarnos de él, convirtiéndose automáticamente en uno de nuestros juegos favoritos de este año. Todo un imprescindible que no deberíais dejar escapar.

Los fallos se castigan con una dureza terrible, ¡puede ser dramático!, pero Dead Cells es tan intenso y emocionante en su acción que poco importa morir una y otra vez, caer en combate y perder todas las armas y tesoros acumulados hasta el momento. Esta aventura RogueVania combina lo mejor de los clásicos Castlevania con la esencia de los roguelike, y lo hace con una elegancia envidiable, con un gran apartado visual y frenético sistema de combate que te hace disfrutar como pocos juegos consiguen.

Es kann sich zum Beispiel lohnen, einen eigentlich schwachen Nahkampfangriff zu nutzen, der dafür die Gegner kurz einfriert - was uns Zeit verschafft, wieder auf Distanz zu gehen und den Bogen einzusetzen. Generell motiviert uns das Spiel mit den geringen Abklingzeiten der Spezialwaffen diese auch ständig zu nutzen, was die Kämpfe angenehm abwechslungsreich macht.

Son game design nous semble aussi solide que les pierres qui ornent ce château maudit qu’il faut parcourir, ce qui n’est pas une métaphore choisie au hasard tant la dureté se dégage de l’endroit. Pour peu que vous ne soyez pas totalement réfractaire à la douce frustration de la mort permanente, cette épopée devrait vous faire perdre la tête pour de bon, à l’image de son étrange protagoniste principal. Pour le meilleur et pour le R.I.P.

Offrant un sacré paquet de possibilités à travers ses nombreuses armes et améliorations qui donnent toujours envie de recommencer, Dead Cells ne s'adressera en revanche pas à tous les publics. C'est bien dommage, puisque les joueurs peu enclins à l'acharnement passeront à côté de sa direction artistique sans faille portée par une bande-son de grande qualité. Une fois encore, le paradis se mérite.

Dead Cells è un titolo eccellente che vi consigliamo senza remore, soprattutto se vi piacciono i metroidvania e i roguelike. Ha come unico difetto i pochi boss, ma per il resto riesce davvero a catturare e a farsi rigiocare più volte fino a che non si sono sbloccati tutti gli oggetti e non si conosco a menadito tutti i segreti di cui è letteralmente infarcito.

Se a questo aggiungiamo una buona traduzione nella nostra lingua e una direzione artistica ispirata, ecco che il risultato finale non può non soddisfare chi cerca un buon metroidvania per questa estate: state solo attenti a qualche morte un po' ingiusta e a sporadici fenomeni di stuttering.

На Switch все не так просто. Несмотря на высокую цену в Nintendo-магазине, Dead Cells весьма играбельна в handheld-режиме — в случаях, когда нужно убить 10-20 минут на что-то, не требующее никаких умственных или физических усилий. В этом случае этот симулятор расстановки мышеловок прекрасно подойдет — и вы обнаружите, что держите в руках самую настоящую мобильную казуалку, которую разработчики так тщательно маскировали.

Sona geldiğimizde Dead Cells’in nasıl bir oyun olduğunu merak ediyorsanız, mutlaka oynamalısınız. İzleyerek veya dinleyerek oyunun nasıl bir yapıda olduğunu, ya da size hitap edip etmediğini anlamanız güç. Parasını sonuna kadar hak eden Dead Cells’i şiddettle türü seven oyunculara tavsiye ediyorum.

Het Castlevania-bloed dat door de aderen van Dead Cells pompt, vertaalt zich vooral in lekkere fysieke, tastbare combat en de runes die nieuwe paden openen. Doordat deze goed verstopt en sterk bewaakt zijn, kunnen de beginwerelden en het beperkte aantal typen vijanden per level repetitief zijn. Toch lonkt Dead Cells steeds met een nieuwe run… en nog één… en nog één.

Dla kogo poleciłbym ten tytuł? Z pewnością dla wszystkich fanów roguelike. To świetny zabijacz czasu, w który nie musimy grać nieprzerwanie wiele godzin. Wystarczy wolna godzinka, aby rozładować emocje w mrocznych dungeonach Dead Cells. Obecnie tytuł ten można dostać za 71,99 zł na Steam i według mnie jest to adekwatna cena do produktu, który zapewni nam bardzo wiele godzin dobrej zabawy.
