Summary: Risking Everything... ...to Please the NES Gods Make no mistake- modern though its release date may be, Risk of Rain's gameplay is just as classic as Donkey Kong, Mario, or Mega Man's gameplay.
Summary: Quite a fun game, I played it both single- and multiplayer. It's a bit of a shame you have to go through a bit of trouble to host a server, certainly is a fair game (all those times i died were my own fault)
Summary: Very pleasing game, run after run you discover new items. It's a mix between binding of isaac for the items and fun and Faster than light for re-playability and each run being a load of fun and discoveries. I really enjoy this game.
Summary: I saw someone complain about the informal style of reviews on Metacritic, so here goes: Single player/multiplayer: 2/2-Alone or with friends, this game is as fun and as rewarding as you make it. Graphics 2/2: No complaints, beautiful art, in my opinion.
Summary: Really, truly phenomenal fun. It'll take a bit to get into it as it takes hard work to unlock the best characters and it is quite hard, but the entire process is worthwhile. Easily the best of the whole rogue-lite genre that has been popular recently. Go buy it!
Summary: This is a decent game and the combat is a lot of fun. However, the platforming is extremely dull and most of the game is spend unloading hundreds of rounds into enemies with way too much health. It's not that it's hard, it's just dull.
Summary: This blend of many different genres is a fantastic play. I've been playing this both single player and with my roommate, and it's more than I'd hoped it would be. It'd be nice if the multiplayer wasn't your old-school "connect to someone's IP address" as opposed to a fleshed out lobby and open game...
Summary: Just give it a shot! The mechanics are amazing, the gameplay is incredibly tight and extremely rewarding. It is good for longer sessions or a quick playthrough. And I did not even try the multiplayer yet!
