Descenders was not what I was expecting, at all. But it ended up being a really fun, challenging game. Even if you’re not great at these kinds of games, or you have young children that might not understand the goal, this is one that the whole family can enjoy, just for the silliness of riding around and wrecking into stuff with your friends while in the lobby, if anything.

I could do as many cool flips and have as many crazy runs as I wanted, but I always ended up wanting to play the game on PC instead for an all-around better experience. I can heartily recommend Descenders to just about anyone, but will point in every other direction before the game’s Switch version.

Descenders is an addictive freeriding roguelite with plenty of content to keep players busy as they get to grips with its unique take on extreme biking action. It may be a little rough around the edges in places and this Switch port has certainly seen a graphical downgrade, but the core riding controls well, the framerate is solid and the procedurally-generated nature of courses keeps things feeling fresh.

Whether taken seriously or just for fun, Descenders isn’t consistent, and considering this specific port has some rough edges graphically, you may just want to focus on using it for its multiplayer.

Descenders offers almost endless fun thanks to fantastic arcade action and infinite procedurally generated levels to play with. Though the move to Switch does come with some graphical concessions, this is a fantastic way to play this sort of game.

Descenders is a genuinely well made game that is a lot of fun to play and suits handheld mode for quick runs whilst travelling or on break at work. Unfortunately, the procedurally generated feature does leave the levels feeling a bit lackluster, resulting in unmemorable moments apart from the ones you make yourself. If you enjoy extreme sports, this is definitely a great game to pick up and for the average player, there is a fair bit of fun to be had as well.

Schade, dass sich Descenders unter jenen Umsetzungen einreiht, die mit einer Brechstange auf Switch lauffähig gemacht wurden. Die teils hässliche Grafik stört jedenfalls die entspannte Abfahrt, während die Beschränkung auf maximal 30 Bilder pro Sekunde sogar das Radeln selbst erschwert.

Il "rogue-bike" di RageSquid sa essere un vero e proprio spasso, arcade racer modesto ed essenziale ma ricolmo di estro e passione, sorprendentemente capace di catturare l’attenzione sia degli amanti del downhill, sia di chi abbia il semplice desiderio di vivere un’esperienza on the road in grado di scostarsi dai soliti binari di genere. Qualora Descenders vi stuzzicasse, non fatevi troppi problemi a dargli una chance. Magari su altre piattaforme di gioco.
