About this game
Developer: The Game Bakers
Content Rating: Teen
Fight your way free in our frenzied all-boss fighter, and discover what’s waiting behind the last gate. Furi is all about the tension of one-on-one fights against deadly adversaries. It’s an intense, ultra-responsive game with a unique mix of fast-paced sword fighting and dual-stick shooting. Each of the formidable guardians —designed by Afro Samurai creator Takashi Okazaki— has a unique and surprising combat style that requires focus and skill to defeat. The high-energy action gets a boost from an explosive soundtrack composed by electro musicians including Carpenter Brut.

Still, if you’re not a fan of games that pack a punch, you might find Furi a bitter pill to swallow. It’s a game that pulls no punches and demands nothing short of perfection from the player. If you’re a masochistic player looking for a punishing game with an unrivaled aesthetic, look no further than Furi to scratch that itch till it bleeds.
It’s an experience worth the price of admission at $20, but there’s a part of me that wishes there was more exploration, more “trash mob” fights between the bosses, and more to do altogether. As an example of boss fights at their finest, Furi is a great game. And when it was over, I felt like I’d achieved something, even on easy mode. I suppose the reason I’m a little disappointed in the game is that it left me wanting more and that’s a good thing. Furi is out today, January 11th, on Nintendo Switch. If you’ve yet to play it elsewhere and love the premise, give it a look.
It’s a high octane blast of a game that will leave you feeling like a space samurai with a force to be wrecked with. It certainly isn’t for everyone, and by Odin, it can be quite the challenge, but its simple controls and fair but brutal learning curve definitely provides a rewarding learning experience. And, once you finish it for the first time, play through it again and see how far you have come. It may even tempt you into speed running the Furier mode.
