Furi is an excellent action, hack n' slash shooter that tells a compelling story with an outstanding soundtrack. I'd be doing my fellow gamers a disservice if I wasn't evangelizing how much I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Furi.
Furi is an indie gem that will push your limits and reward you in the best ways possible with its tough difficulty and creative fights. With every battle comes a new challenge and a new opportunity to prove yourself with the thrilling and satisfying combat system. Mix in the surprisingly deep story and the captivating soundtrack and you have an excellent experience that pushes its ideas to the edge with style. Instead of being a mess that tries too many things, Furi amazingly focuses its gameplay on only several bizarre elements, but perfects them and makes an adventure like no other that you won't forget. Any action fan would be doing themselves a displeasure to not at least give this game a try.
Furi is sure to make your adrenaline rise at least once, with formidable bosses and a fantastic story, each moment of the game — whether it be narrative or combat — drives you towards the ending of the game that you choose. You don't need to be a dueling master — failing in Furi is part of the fun as each lost life means that you're one step closer to understanding the mechanics and therefore one step closer to victory. Simply put, if you can get past the difficulty and see the beauty behind it, you're sure to have a blast with this game and especially on the Nintendo Switch.
I enjoyed my time with Furi. I also hated it. Loved the way your character moves the way you want him to, hated the way the bosses are so darn hard to beat. It’s the perfect game to satisfy your cravings for hard boss fights. Also the perfect game to destroy your controller. Or in this case, your Nintendo Switch.
Furi is an energetic, challenging boss rush game with an entertaining (and at times frustrating) mix of shooting and melee combat. If you missed this great game on previous consoles or PC, then go ahead and plunge into Furi on Nintendo Switch, you won’t regret it.
Furi brings to the Nintendo Switch what seems to be a mix between a hack 'n' slash and a twin-stick shooter. It's a solid effort, thanks to its good gameplay, as well as to a well-designed visual interface. It falls short on its lifespan, however, as it feels too short for its own good and the difficulty level can often become frustrating.

It's good that Furi went to Switch. Now the evil bosses can be dragged with them everywhere. However, the technical implementation of this version leaves much to be desired

A fantastic genre mash-up between hack and slash, boss rush and twin-stick bullet hell shooters, Furi is as unique a blend now as it was in 2016. It fits effortlessly onto the Nintendo Switch, but it's a game that is waiting to challenge you and worth testing yourself against on other platforms.
"Fast and furious action."

Furi is like Dark Souls meets Shadow of the Colossus. Only bosses but really hard. Recommended for everyone that loves a challenge.
