I’m not going to pretend that Enter the Gungeon is for everybody, it’s not. If players can’t stand the idea of starting over from scratch mostly after each death or don’t have an appreciation for games like Binding of Isaac, there isn’t much to change their minds here. Though players looking for something more in that spirit with different gameplay mechanics that mostly come away feeling all for the better, they are in for a treat.=
Like with the loot system and item drops, the flaws in co-op aren't fatal, but they do detract from what is, in places, an accomplished roguelike with a lot going for it, and a few hours play will see shortcuts open and more powerful – and more satisfying – guns drop a bit more often. Besides, the pun works. Just.
Its flaws elsewhere are all the more disappointing. So much care is apparent in its construction, but in its attempt to merge multiple genres and styles together, Enter the Gungeon’s most important elements--namely its roguelike flavors and massive offering of distinct weapons--don’t gel. It’s a game at odds with itself.
