Everything conspires to drown and neutralize every spark of intelligence glimpsed in Giga Wrecker Alt's best moments, buried under the ruins of what could've been a genious experiment.

Giga Wrecker Alt ended up being a pretty decent action game from Game Freak, being a metroidvania with a very heavy reliance on puzzles that are often clever enough to get the player thinking without making them totally stumped. However, the confusing map, weird zoomed-out view and clunky nature of the game makes this one tough to recommend even for metroidvania fans, since it has a lot more jank than most polished experiences.

Giga Wrecker Alt is a good puzzle platformer game with amazing puzzles, beautiful art style, some technical problems in its gameplay, besides lack of character's voice. Good aspects of the game is much more than its weaknesses and if you are a fan of this genre, then you must check Giga Wrecker Alt and entertain yourself with some challenging puzzle.

Giga Wrecker Alt is neither revolutionary nor without issues, and in fact is suffering from some obvious problems, but at the same time it offers a challenging and entertaining experience mixed with great story and interesting characters. With Giga Wrecker Alt, Game Freak showed that one of the most important things is to believe in your team, and to give them time and space to develop their ideas.

Giga Wrecker Alt. is a unique game, for sure, but uniqueness alone doesn’t make something good. The basics have to be there first, and in this case, they’re just not.

Giga Wrecker Alt. is a bit of a mixed bag, and it's hard to see just who would get the most out of it. There are some great elements in here. Some really great ideas. The sad truth is, it's a pretty poor execution of so many promising elements. The flawed controls, combined with the major issues on establishing how and where to progress makes ultimately for a pretty frustrating experience. Not the good type of frustrating, where a roar and a smile inspires a confidence to overcome. The sort of frustration to lead to just wanting to dump the game.

Giga Wrecker ALT. has some cool ideas, a good level design and even cooler physics, but is hampered by floaty controls and a basic combat system. Recommended, but not without caveats.
