Critic Reviews for DeadCore

It's a shame the game is entirely let down by poor controls and sometimes cheap challenge design, both of which are at odds with the game's speedrunning ethos.

An awesome chance to think of Mirror's Edge & Portal, but also a hard game due to control issues.

All in all, DeadCore is not a very good game. While it's $7.99 price point may be appealing at first glance, it pains me to say that it quickly descends into a incredibly boring, and clunky jump-fest, with its only saving grace being its theme and atmosphere.

There's a good concept to DeadCore, and for the most part, it's one that feels pretty well executed. It's no looker, and the PS4's controller lacks the dexterity needed to truly master the platform puzzlin', runnin' and gunnin' DeadCore offers, but that doesn't mean there isn't something enjoyable and challenging to glean from this console version.

For those who want a challenging platforming title on the PS4, DeadCore is right up your alley. For casual gamers out there, I would recommend going elsewhere.

DeadCore is definitely a game that will appeal to hardcore gamers out there who are up for taking on a challenge. The fast-paced platforming action and the elaborate puzzles you'll need to overcome will reward players who learn from all the trial and error that will take place in this adventure. So if this is the type of game you favor, be sure to play DeadCore on PlayStation 4.

8 / 10

DeadCore is a fun and challenging first-person action platforming experience that speedrunners are going to love. The gun itself has a timer you can see at all times which marks the total time you've spent playing, as a reminder of how you always need to be on the move. The game requires a lot of trial and error as you learn a level's layout and hazards as you slowly improve your skills to take on the more demanding sections in later levels. If you give this one a chance, you'll notice that each mistake you make will allow you to learn from it and improve your skills, so that subsequent attempts will bring you closer and closer to your immediate goal.

DeadCore doesn't quite knock Portal off its podium but it offers a wild, well-paced, otherworldly ride that is well worth taking.
