Critic Reviews for Cobalt


4.5 / 10.0

There's a pretty good game buried somewhere inside Cobalt, obscured by layers of poor balancing and technical glitches. The energetic combat and fun weapons make multiplayer a neat pick-up-and-play experience, but the bungled and buggy story mode just doesn't cut it. Cobalt left me feeling blue.

Generous and surprising, Cobalt's also blessed with central mechanics that are a joy to master.

A boldly inventive 2D shooter that asks a lot of its players but rewards them with one of the most versatile action games of recent months.

Cobalt is like realizing an old favorite isn't quite what you remembered

The multiplayer is fine if you can find people to play with, but it doesn't save the experience. If this shipped without a campaign, it might have benefited from it, but as it is now, even the good part will probably be forgotten soon enough.

Cobalt is a complete platform like few others, powerful and with very fun online modes, which make it an essential purchase for fans of the genre.

Cobalt is a resourceful game stained only by a controversial artistic direction. An indie gem that, between single-player and multiplayer, gives everything and does it well.

A challenging experience centered around gameplay that has you deflect bullets by rolling head first into danger.
