Critic Reviews for Frogun
Frogun is old-school bliss. This is a 3D platformer that doesn't just capture the feel of a PS1 classic in one area, it captures the magic in every part of the package. From vivid low-poly art to simple yet satisfying gameplay, it's a must-play for anyone itching to experience another classic 3D adventure.
From a presentation standpoint, the game has a lot of charm with its low-poly models and bright colours, and it runs perfectly at all times. The music and effects are also fairly old-school, but can be irritatingly repetitive. Overall, the game just feels quite flat; its central idea is good but levels don't really build on it, and some cutesy visuals can only take it so far.
Frogun sets out to do exactly what it intends. There is more than enough to enjoy in the game, with around a five hours campaign to play through and the added replayability of finding collectibles that you may have missed the first time. And, although the story is simple, at no point did we find ourselves getting bored. Even the frustration of repeating levels is genuinely reflective of early gaming. It's safe to say that Frogun succeeds in evoking that retro-style puzzle-platforming of the '90s.
There are a ton of great reasons to get into Frogun. It’s got a nice level of challenge, charm for days, a fun and breezy trophy/achievement list, a silly but compelling hook and unlockable hats! I wasn’t entirely in love with all of the half-dozen boss fights with a lot of them feeling a bit safe, but as a whole this is a great little package that even includes a local multiplayer “duel” mode. If a game that has you play as an abandoned child that gets around by pulling the trigger on a taxidermy-Kermit-head-turned-projectile-weapon sounds up your alley, definitely give this one a go.
