Top Critic Average
FullBlast joins the growing wave of 2D shoot'em ups that's building up the Nintendo Switch catalogue but other than its fluid gameplay, it doesn't really provide for an intense, gratifying experience in any other way. Repetitive patterns, a dull audiovisual component and an overall feeling of doing the same thing over and over again put FullBlast in the passable efforts category.

Though FullBlast is just a pretty middle-of-the-road title it’s not going to win any awards, and there are certainly multiple indie titles out there that are better in a variety of areas. That said, it isn’t as aggravating as some at the top and not as boring as many at the bottom so since it is also budget-friendly it is at least deserving of an audience. If you were hoping for a shooter with a slightly slower pace that is more forgiving FullBlast is a fine choice.
FullBlast is an average scrolling shooter that will provide enjoyment for an hour or two. The main problem is that it is far too easy, and its ideas are consistently being stretched too thin
FullBlast is a cool vertical shooter which offers a decent amount of content if you opt to play all the levels. The 3D environments make for an interesting battlefield, especially when the screen begins to rotate and you see all the buildings below spin around as you’re taking out the alien invasion. The music is almost a Rock compilation and fits the mood perfectly, it really gets you pumped for showing these E.T.s who’s boss! Just like other Ratalaika Games titles, I would advise you to carry on playing after the 30 minute platinum as the game only gets better as you progress through all 12 levels.
The base game is fun. It's easy and approachable for newcomers. But it doesn't go all that far in any particular aspect.
Too many modern shmups are bullet hell shooters, so it’s refreshing to play one that doesn’t totally flood the screen with bullets at every moment. With decently fun gameplay, easy Achievements/Trophies, and a low price, FullBlast offers just enough bang for your buck.
Fullblast is a fun shoot 'em up on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita with plenty of levels to play for an entry in its genre.
FullBlast is a vertical scrolling shooter that will be sure to hit you in the nostalgia feels as you play through its 12 levels of single or coop action. The game is reminiscent to the arcade shooters of the 80's and 90's. The game supports a heavy metal soundtrack that will keep you pumped up as you shmup your way through multiple levels with 4 mini bosses and 3 mega bosses.
There are many shooters out there, but this budget title is a “blast” for some quick alien-blasting fun on the go. With a few more options and levels, it could be fantastic, but it's worth having a go if your trigger fingers are itching for some old-fashioned blasting action.
FullBlast is a nifty little diversion for those that have a few bucks to spend on a shoot-em-up, but with lenient difficulty, generic presentation, and unremarkable gameplay, you might have a better time with another bullet hell game on the Switch eShop.
