Critic Reviews for Metal: Hellsinger

A lean and tightly-restrained mashup of more than just Rock Band and Doom, Metal: Hellsinger captures the earnest spirit of an underloved genre.

Metal: Hellsinger manages to remain entertaining despite its lackluster story due to its great soundtrack and well-integrated rhythmic combat.

Metal: Hellsinger might not be the greatest demon-slaying shoot 'em up in the world, but it's certainly a stirring tribute.

More than just a Doom clone and despite faltering during what should be the game's highlights this is an enjoyable romp for both metal and shooter fans alike.

I likely won’t remember my minute frustrations with the game a few months from now, but I will remember “Dissolution,” a Two Feathers track with cathartic vocals from Bjorn “Speed” Strid of Soilwork, the realm of Hell known as Nihil, and the way my shotgun obliterated waves of enemies there. I’m so glad Metal: Hellsinger ends with the promise of more to come because I already want more from this series.

The rhythmic interplay between Metal: Hellsinger's rip-roaring soundtrack and frenetic action is a magical concoction.

Metal: Hellsinger is exactly what I hoped it would be – a balls to the wall, headbanging, visceral experience that nails the aesthetic and feel of the premise. The soundtrack is superb and perfectly suits the setting and narrative, and everything is carried along by an interesting and well-voiced narrative. Even if you are not a big fan of metal (and why the Hell wouldn't you be?) this is an excellent rhythm shooter that absolutely slays.

Metal: Hellsinger is a devilishly fun shooter that puts the focus on a vertiginous action to the rhythm of the music and wraps it with mechanics that give it depth. It does not have many levels and everything revolves around repeating them to achieve the highest score and climb in the ranking, something that will not convince all players.
