A obsessively tuned, finely crafted shooter that more than recreates the speed and pure joy of '90s classics.

Fast-paced and violent action hits the ground running, but the intense horror atmosphere might turn off some

That really explains DUSK well. This is shooter perfection and something fans of the classics need to experience. Maybe it doesn't redefine what is possible with video games, but it beats out basically every other shooter I've ever played. I know I'll be replaying this for years to come and I look forward to seeing what fans are capable of with mod tools.

Even while calling back to a previous era, Dusk adds on top of those legacies. This is retro first-person shooter perfection, the next evolution in a genre once frozen in time. Long may it reign once again.

Honestly, this is purist FPS as good as it gets, just a constantly stunning game. Don’t miss this.

Dusk has the backwoods setting of Blood and Redneck Rampage, the forbidding atmosphere and murky palette of Quake, the tight, sharp action of Doom, and the subtle sense of place and interactivity of Duke Nukem 3D. Essentially, Dusk is a retro shooter fan's dream come true.

It’s the closest you’ll get to that feeling of shooters from yesteryear, and you’d do yourself a disservice as a shooter fan by missing it.

If you want to relive the halcyon days of the FPS genre, a time when games strove to be unrealistic and challenging, you can't get any better than DUSK. Here's hoping for future episodes.

DUSK is a thoroughly unapologetic retro-inspired shooter. It's got flaws, but its excellent combat and emphasis on exploration should see it rocket-jump to the top of every shooter fan's wish list.

Dusk is easily one of the best pure-action FPSes to come along in years, mixing gunplay and exploration in equal measure.
