Obviously, Noita isn’t for everyone. But it’s well worth checking out for rogue-lite fans who don’t want their hands held, and don’t particularly care how victorious they are. A lot of people will be frustrated by its unrelenting difficulty and plethora of instant death scenarios, but that’s part of the charm.
Victory in Noita requires the same patience, planning, and diligence as the recently released Spelunky 2, with an added dose of chaos and unpredictability. Mastering its systems takes time, but a rewarding world full of secrets and plenty of colorful explosions make this adventure worth the struggle.
Whether it’s for a single hour of investment or a fair number of them. Straightforward and occasionally frustrating the set-up may seem, Noita‘s hands-off approach to instruction and allowing player-made discovery to bloom is one sought-after trait in gaming that here pays off time and time again.
That said, there are few games that can create the sheer maelstrom of activity that Noita does. You're in a firefight with a shock trooper, your spell zings over his head and strikes the pile of gunpowder lurking in the shadows. Suddenly, both of you are trapped in a burning chasm, as the wooden vat containing a metric ton of oil begins to deteriorate in the flames.
Noita is a true standout title in the roguelike genre, featuring endlessly deep gameplay that plays off of its engaging pixel art style. It takes some time to reveal itself and will turn away those not willing to put the effort in, but for those that do the rewards are great. If you’ve become exhausted by the glut of AAA titles that look great on the surface but feature little depth underneath then Noita should interest you.
Running out of levitation while trying to escape a mob of monsters that I’m not equipped to handle, usually. The only negative I’ve found in the whole game is how difficult it is. You’re rewarded for exploring, but man have you got to work for your rewards. But if “it kills you often” is the worst thing you can say about a rougelite, then it has to be doing something right.
Se vi piacciono le sfide difficili e amate questo genere di giochi, Noita fa davvero per voi. Non costa un’esagerazione e garantisce un sacco di ore di esplorazione, sconquasso, uccisioni e divertimento. Fra l’altro, non richiede nemmeno un PC ninja per funzionare e fa uso dei core aggiuntivi del processore se ne trova a disposizione. Frustrante ma bello.
