An immensely tough, but amazingly satisfying shooter experience for only $15 (USD). If you’re looking for a serious challenge, a brightly colored, uniquely appealing geometric aesthetic, or the best ‘80s soundtrack you never knew you needed in your life, then Desync is your jam.

A fast, punishing, stylish first-person shooter with a unique character-action-style formula and nuanced combat to boot. Hardcore and rewarding, if you can get a handle on it.

Desync can be frustrating at times, but it’s a well-designed shooter that forces you to focus and choose your moves carefully as you battle hordes of neon monsters. Its thumping, bass-heavy soundtrack and neon world make for a very immersive shooter experience, and it’s an easy recommendation for fans of shooters.

DESYNC is suffering from lack of new ideas, boring visuals and some gameplay flaws, but if you are a classic shooter fan, you'll enjoy its faced-paced gameplay, insane difficulty and great mix of enemies and weapons. Death Squared is a fun and challenging puzzle game if you don't mind its many flows. In fact, you'll probably enjoy it only if you are a puzzle fanatic or you are a very social person who loves solving puzzles with friends.

DESYNC requires a special blend of patience and precision. It’s a raw power buried way in your guts that this game just might awaken in you anew.

A crazy experience, not recommended for players with problems of epilepsy and with a strong "old school" shooter style. Hard, fast & frustrating.

DESYNC mixes fast-paced action with gnarly visuals of a bygone era, living up to a promise that that it’ll kick 50 shades of neon out of your butt and then some. Your mileage on such punishing and relentless gameplay however, might vary depending on your tolerance for pain and synth.

DESYNC is a retro-futuristic shooter, that mix the killing-style of Bulletstorm, the art direction of Tron and the fast-paced action of Painkiller, all wrapped with a thick fog and a sadistic level of difficulty.

In short, we are in front of a very special FPS that is set in a strange and psychedelic world and invites us to face hordes of different and ever increasing enemies. Technically it looks very good while keeping a constant frame; Graphics and audio compartments are also well cared for and have no imperfections to point out. Only one sinner is perhaps the repetition of the title, although there is a ranking that calls us to improve with our friends, with the passing of time the title may be somewhat monotonous and repetitive.

Beautiful aesthetics and soundtrack wrapping a Doom-alike shooter, slightly marred by unfair and punishing gameplay that could use a good dose of balancing.
