Futuridium EP Deluxe
In the end, Futuridium EP Deluxe is a wildly difficult and repetitive game. It manages to stay fairly interesting by allowing players to change songs and unlock new gameplay modes and skins, but in the end players end up repeating the same levels over and over again with no variation in them. The game's $10 price tag makes it buy-able, but you should still consider whether or not they want to spend $10 on Futuridium EP Deluxe or simply rent a movie for the PS Store. You might actually get a lot more out of the movie.
Futuridium EP Deluxe is a bland-at-best space-shooter. Without any exciting gameplay hooks, players are left with a product that simply lacks the "fun factor" its colorful visuals would imply it has.
Futuridium EP Deluxe may take a little longer to click than the likes of Resogun, but once it does it's an absolute joy to play.
They will push you to the limit in a race to save your spaceship. Making mistakes isn't an option and acting fast is your main task. Futuridium is fun through and through, and it deserves your download sooner rather than later.
Futuridium EP Deluxe is a fun yet quite challenging experience that will certainly test the skills and reflexes of all PS4 and PS Vita owners. The levels are quite varied and imaginative, but the credit system is very punishing, although certainly attractive for those looking for a tough time. In quite a few areas you'll feel just like Luke Skywalker as he's piloting through the Death Star, so Star Wars fans should certainly try it out.
This is not a game for casual players, neither is it for those with a love of the arcade shooter genre. This is a game for retro purists or for those who wear their triumphs over insane difficulty levels like virtual army epaulettes across their gamer tags. Futuridium is a game for those who can invest in the grind of simply 'getting the job done'. Taken on those terms, Futuridium becomes a challenge to be completed, retro looking enough to be in vogue, yet with mechanics that inhibit a broader mainstream appeal. Once you've sated your curiosity on its aesthetic retro nostalgia, it quickly feels like you're playing Galaga at light speed ….on your PS4. Whether or not you invested in a PS4 to be able to play Galaga is something owners of Futuridium will have to come to terms with.
Futuridium EP Deluxe is a promising game with simple and tight controls.
