Drawn To Death
David Jaffe returns with an obnoxious, sketchy shooter that packs a surprising - if not entirely pleasant - punch.
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.
One of the most unique-looking shooters of recent years, but not necessarily in a good way. Especially not when the action is this unrefined and purposefully annoying.
The barebones arena action offers too few thrills. If the distracting visuals don't turn you off, the sophomoric humor and constant barrage of insults will
Drawn to Death fails the fundamentals
Drawn to Death has a big imagination, but it does not play well with others.
Drawn to Death is what is, nothing more and nothing less, and those who can bear it are in for something crass, vulgar, and utterly enjoyable.
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.

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.
