David Jaffe returns with an obnoxious, sketchy shooter that packs a surprising - if not entirely pleasant - punch.

Drawn to Death's juvenile presentation belies a nuanced shooter that's frankly a breath of fresh air. The title fuses fighting games with frenetic on-foot action that feels quite unlike anything you'll ever have played before. Quality game modes and an imaginative roster of weapons are only let-down by the lingering microtransactions that have seemingly survived the title's business model change unscathed. Other than that, though, it's f*cking awesome.

The game is easy to dismiss, as it is not a AAA title and doesn't hold bragging rights for power visuals or performance stats. However, if you stick around for just a few more minutes, unleash whatever teen angst you still have bottled up and come let loose on Drawn to Death.

Drawn to Death is a fast paced arena third person shooter from David Jaffe. It has charisma, a great concept and loves to make players rememeber how '90 shooter were great.

The shooter developed by The Bartlet Jones's Supernatural Detective Agency is a mix of madness, fun and frenzy, characterized by a unique and remarkable art style.

David Jaffe and co. have created something wildly novel, moderately fun, and slightly frustrating with Drawn to Death. In the finished product lies a blueprint for a great game, but mediocre shooting mechanics and a slightly shallow level of content holds back Drawn to Death in the end.

Drawn to Death is a bloody, messy, childish romp through adolescent notebook art, putting you into the art itself in a series of deathmatches. The art style is endearing and interesting, but it leads to some confusion in the gameplay itself. Fast-paced, unique, and creative, Drawn to Death provides a gnarly experience unlike any other, but suffers from a bit of monotony all too quickly, mimicking high school quite well.

Drawn to Death is another unique title from David Jaffe and his new studio. Not only is Drawn to Death's art style unique, but its gameplay is also solid fun. The true test for Drawn to Death will see how it stays relevant in an already crowded genre.

Drawn to Death is neither a total hit, nor a complete misfire- it does a lot of things wrong, but it also does enough things right for it to end up as one of the most thoroughly unique, if flawed, shooters on the market.

Drawn to Death is somehow fun and gives its best thanks to the crazy and gross art direction and vocabulary, but it has several flaws when it comes down to be as quick and effective as you would expect from a game that basicaly insults your mother every time it has a chance to do so.

There's hope for Drawn to Death to grow into something more, and my fingers are crossed that it does. After not quite a week, I've just about had my fill and don't feel compelled to stick around for cosmetic unlocks earned from drawn-out blind boxes. With new modes and characters, another pass at balancing, and some matchmaking options, I could see myself coming back. Until then, I'm good.

Drawn to Death is a curious shooter proposal, but that's just it. It doesn't have enough depth to be able to hook in the way other shooters do, mostly because of the lack of variety of characters or not being able to choose the mode you want to play online.

Though its unique art style is masterfully executed, and some of the gameplay elements have a solid foundation, it is the array of technical and multiplayer issues that keep Drawn to Death from succeeding as an arena shooter.

New game from David Jaffe does have some great moments, especially when all four players on the map know what they're doing. Shame it's buried beneath jokes that are beyond bad taste, clumsy controls and horrible matchmaking.

David Jaffe has always been known for games that can be a bit over the top and Drawn to Death may be the most extreme example of that to date. The notebook art style is very unique and works well with the varying character roster throughout the fast paced arena matches. However, the long wait times and crass humor used to make Drawn to Death seem edgy really drag down the experience as a whole.

Drawn To Death is an interesting idea that has been poorly implemented. The art style is fantastic to look at, but it’s at odds with the gameplay and isn’t helped by a lacklustre HUD.

What could have been a genuinely interesting new chapter for Jaffe and company, ultimately ends up falling flat under the weight of its own potential. Though there is plenty to like in the art style and core level design, there are many other key elements like merely passable controls and unfulfilling combat that drive home its lack of polish and balance. On paper, enthusiastically diving into a sophomoric world of teenage angst seems like an fun concept. However, it doesn’t take long to realize that there’s a damn good reason why most people grow up. Maybe Drawn to Death should do the same. It needs to report to detention, immediately.

Despite a unique design concept and a visually appealing art style, Drawn to Death fails to capture the magic of a truly great arena shooter, and degrades its quality with unfunny dialogue and juvenile insults.

Drawn to Death is one of the most disappointing games I've played in recent memory. The premise is fantastic and there is a heap of potential buried beneath the surface. Unfortunately, even after you dig past that rough outer shell, the inside is almost entire empty and devoid of engaging content.

Drawn to Death is done with soul, but disappointing in gameplay aspects. It can not cope with it's duties in terms of matchmaking and providing a comfortable online play. And considering that except online there's nothing here, it becomes quite sad.

Drawn to Death is not an easy game to evaluate. You can experience fun matches, but there's so few of them that it's not worth mentioning. Matchmaking is terrible and virtually everything from heroes, weapons or abilities is strongly unbalanced. To make matters worse, the game's white background can make your head hurt.

With a look this distinctive, Drawn to Death could have hit the ground running. But as a decent shooter it merely limps, thanks to a number of unfortunate design choices, a lack of options, and rampant bugs. Intricate levels, varied weapons and unique characters may have looked good on paper, but any positives Drawn to Death has get scribbled over and obscured by the constant barrage of un-funny abuse it insists on endlessly spewing in your face.

Not all good ideas are executed well but for a game to be this incoherent and aweful not in mechanics (which are at best mediocre) but in its presentation is something only David Jaffe can do! So I recommend Drawn to Death for only thise who have no self esteem whatsoever (or a high one not to care) and even than, the game isn't anytime more than a second hand product of much better titles

It's probably just as well Sony gave this thing away for free with PSPlus memberships. It's the only hope the game has of actually keeping an audience (because it's a multiplayer-only game, it needs a large and sustained community).
