12 is Better Than 6 has good combat and a great art style, but is held back by technical issues, unpredictable AI and some odd design decisions. The issues hamper the gameplay and, whilst there is a story, it's entirely forgettable and delivered in awkwardly written dialogue. It's probably best to stick this game's obvious influences.

12 is better than 6 is a frantic, top-down shooter with a lovely pen and paper visual style

You can eventually tie a stick of dynamite to a rat, who then runs after the first enemy he sees. It's devilishly awesome.

Ultimately, I had a lot of fun with 12 Is Better Than 6. It’s not your standard twin-stick shooter. There’s a huge tactical element alongside the standard twitch shooting.

On Switch, 12 is Better Than 6 is much more of a mexican let down than a mexican stand off. It sure had some potential as a far west hand drawn Hotline Miami but issues like frame rate dropping, protagonist stuck near some walls or very disappointing A.I. make it a game that can be hard to enjoy. Too bad.

A stylish top-down shooter brought down by mechanical quirks. They say that 12 is better than 6, but this game is only holding 6. It's good, but it has some work to do if it wants to get all 12.

12 is Better Than 6 provides quick, intense battles coupled with a great soundtrack and visuals. I had an enjoyable time in the Wild West – much more than expected. A few tweaks could go a long way, but as it is, I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for something unique in the twin-stick genre.

12 is Better Than 6's art style is what first drew me in. It features a hand-drawn style where the environment, the weapons, and all the people look like they've just been sketched on a white piece of paper

Considering Hotline Miami is a widely available and far superior game, why anyone would want to play 12 is Better Than 6 is beyond me.

Considering Nintendo fans don’t have Hotline Miami to fire-up on their Switch, 12 Is Better Than 6 cocks its gun and shoots its way up towards the top as one of the best in its genre. You don’t want to miss out.
