I wouldn't rate garbage games a 10 unless I had a reason. Enter the Gungeon is one of my favourite Rogue-like games of all time.

You enter the Gungeon with the goal of trying to find a gun that can kill the past.

Going through

  • Meet new characters that can help you on your quest to kill your past
  • Fighting different bosses and enemies
  • Raging and quitting the game because it's too hard.

When I mean by “Too hard” It's actually difficult. The only way to progress in the game is to unlock different weapons and passive/skills for your next run on the Gungeon. I played this game for hours with my brother, trying to finish this game.

It's sooo hard. This is probably the hardest RogueLike game I've ever played, and it's my favourite.

Weapons: There are a lot of weapons in this game, and a lot of those are weird. Like a gun which is a bullet shooting bullet? and some guns are quite cool. Most weapons in the game except for the starter character's gun have ammo. After finishing a room on the floor, there's a chance you can get ammo boxes. And you can buy different weapons using coins, which is obtainable by killing enemies. You can drop your weapons in-game and give them to your friends if you're playing co-op.

Graphics-wise. It's quite decent. I love the type of graphics, neat and clean. It's not very HD, but it's cool. Some details in some guns are amazing.

There is so much stuff in this game. This game deserves all the love from the fan-based. Just imagine how long it took them just to make this masterpiece. The small details in this game, like if you shoot in the shop, the shop owner will get mad and shoot you. And for the rest of the run, you can't go to the shop any more.

Bosses. This game has the most memorable bosses in my entire gaming life. The fights perfected the meaning of “BulletHell” It's too hard and cool at the same time. I wish I could express how amazing the fights and the details in the boss fights are.

Fights don't usually have an attack pattern. They attack in the direction you're in. And some bosses are so annoying, they are so hard. With some giving different effects.

This game is 78% skill and 22% luck. You must be lucky with the weapons and active/passive skills. If you have a broken weapon, you'll probably be able to finish the first 2 floors without knowing anything about the game. But you still need skills. Like a lot of stuff, dodging is the main thing when it comes to surviving.

And in the Gungeon, there are traps that will kill you at least 100 times. There'll be an unexpected trap behind you while you're walking. It's quite annoying, and some rooms have a trap room which is all traps and at the end of the room is the next room. It's pretty hard and annoying, especially when your controller has a joystick drift, and you accidentally move to the trap and die.

I already mentioned the graphics but forgot to mention the lighting, the lighting, and colours in this game are so bright. Which reminds me of Nvidia's vibrant features. It's so bright, and it really fits the graphics and bullets that the enemy shoots.

Enemy. There are so many types of enemies. Some being a ghost with an AK and some being a bullet that has a gun that shoots a bullet. And touching the enemy counts as you get hit, which is reasonable. And It's hard.

This game is amazing. I wish I could express how much I love this game, but most people will find me annoying. After playing this game for hours, the enemy and bosses still surprise me with an unexpected attack that I haven't seen yet.

Here's what IGN has to say about this game:

“Enter the Gungeon’s design is quite sophisticated for a game about shooting bullets at anthropomorphized bullets with guns; it uses elements of one genre in the context of another, enhancing its most enjoyable elements. Despite their being so many more moving parts than in a typical arcade shooter, it somehow feels more immediate and focused on getting you into the action and keeping you there. And where other similar games can run out of novelty within a few hours, Enter the Gungeon is still surprising me with new implements of destruction after 50 hours of play”.

This game is Phenomenal. 10/10 a perfect RogueLike game. And it's on the gamepass that made it more perfect. It's amazing that gamepass made me fall in love with so many games, including this one. Without Xbox gamepass, I probably wouldn't have even heard of this game.

Ever since I bought this game from launch I was hooked. Even to this day, I can't stop playing this game. Fans of Raiden or R-Type will enjoy this top-down bullet hell shooter that has a pinch of RPG mechanics. Now, the story isn't all that great. In fact, it kinda starts too slow since you'll have to inch your way through the first 5 floors of the Gungeon (which is no small task) to unravel everything. However, once you have accomplished this task, the plot further unravels and leads to more interesting gameplay features.



It's a solid game and worth every penny.

Enter the Gungeon does a good job of explaining its mechanics via tutorial and Ammonomicon, making it great first for anyone looking to get into this burgeoning genre. It doesn’t necessarily bring anything new to table, but what it does bring is extremely well done.

With tons to find, unlock and kill, Enter the Gungeon is easily recommendable to those that don't mind a bit of repetition and difficulty, and especially to fans of Nuclear Throne and Binding of Isaac. While it doesn't totally reinvent the twin-stick shooter, it has all but perfected it and is worth every penny.
