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

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.

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.
