Critic Reviews for RICO
RICO is meant meant to be played in quick bursts of ridiculous action. Spend too long with the game and infinite loop of smashing doors and clearing rooms becomes rather tiresome, but that's fine, not every game has to be an epic that requires you to bring a packed lunch. It may not be the best looking title, and it does have a few technical hiccups, but for a quick hit of over the top action it works really well, even more so if you have a friend to join in.
RICO is a rather simple and accessible first person shooter which fits the Nintendo Switch nicely for quick gaming sessions and which also boasts a very long lifespan, thanks to its roguelike structure. While occasionally some of its levels do not quite allow the player to solve them, RICO's wealthy and varied content help make this an enjoyable and its multiplayer component, both local and online, only improves the experience.

Overall, Rico has quite a bit in terms of randomized levels and tasks to complete in its roguelike first-person shooter setting. However, the game trips over itself when random placements hinder level progression. These instances become more frustrating as level difficulty ramps up. Still, there's a lot of potential with Rico. I wouldn't mind revisiting the game after a patch or two. As it stands, its a nice addition to the online multiplayer shooter library on Nintendo Switch.
