Guacamelee!

DarkStation
7 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Is there a time and place for meme art in games? Do Guacamelee! ‘s Mexican themes offend ? How does a game studio properly issue a love letter to their influences? Guacamelee! is a surprising source for a number of in-depth questions regarding ethnic art and internet influence, but it’s also one of the finest games available for the PlayStation Vita. Players steering clear of it for the reasons listed above are missing a robust venture in the world of action-platforming.

Guacamelee!

  • Conclusion: Even though it would have definitely benefitted from taking a breath and slowing things down a little, and even though the game-world could have been mined more deeply, Guacamelee! remains a pleasure to play from start to finish, boss-shaped difficulty spikes and all. Its brevity, easter-egg obsession and unlockable difficulties also make it an ideal candidate for repeat playthroughs and that it supports cross play between the PS3 and Vita make doing so extremely easy.

  • Excerpt: If you've been playing games for any extended portion of your life, you'll completely understand my mindset while I played through Drinkbox's outstanding new south of the border platformer, Guacamelee. What mindset am I talking about? Every time I picked up the game, I almost immediately put it down. Why? I didn't want to finish and be sad it was over.

Guacamelee! Review

  • Excerpt: In many ways, Guacamelee! is stupid. The name alone should give you that impression. A loving take on the 'Metroidvania' style platformer, within its first few minutes the ridiculous nature of its premise is confirmed. Juan, a going-nowhere Mexican, is tasked with rescuing El Presidente's daughter from an evil charro skeleton named Calaca. Makes perfect sense...

Guacamelee!

  • Conclusion: If Super Metroid is fine dining on exquisite steak then Guacamelee is a night at the wild Mexican place down the street, the one where you're sure the salsa is either aggressively seasoned or mixed with the chef's blood. This might leave Guacamelee too abrasive for certain tastes, but for most everyone else it’s the equivalent of a celebration riot in its declared genre.
