Rival Megagun isn't a perfect package, but it offers a unique gameplay experience that nobody else is trying to create right now. Shoot 'em ups are blood-pumping adrenaline adventures, and adapting that into a competitive game is a feat that Rival Megagun does impressively well. While some gameplay balance issues and a bland story mode tarnish the final product, Rival Megagun is still an engaging title worth checking out if you and a loved one need a new way to settle your arguments.

A classic shump that brings some unique twist to the old arcadey games that we played on the arcades 20 years ago, but falls a bit short while doing it, specially if you are playing alone.

Rival Megagun is a lot of fun to play, but that fun is short-lived if you’re only playing by yourself. It’s best to pit your skills against another human player for the most enjoyment, so you can really enjoy those super-cool retro vibes.

Overall, I did enjoy Rival Megagun, even if I did find the occasional fault.
