Blazing Beaks is a lot of things, all at once, splitting focus between a rogue-lite Story mode and twin-stick local multiplayer shenanigans. Neither mode is perfect, and there might be stronger options available if you're only interested in one of these genres, but there's an astonishing level of replay value here, across the board. You'd be quackers to miss it.

Blazing Beaks is one of the Switch's hidden eShop gems. Regardless of the potentially steep learning curve, the game always leads to lots of laughs. It's best played with a group of friends to get the most enjoyment out of all the content that the game has to offer. If Blazing Beaks even remotely catches your eye, it is well worth a purchase.
