It’s nigh on impossible to dislike Hamsterdam. It is a cute caper with some very cool ideas that plays to its strengths. This isn’t an expensive or expansive game. It is a quick distraction and a wonderful one at that. Consider a weekend break to Hamsterdam and you won’t be disappointed.

A delightful little beat em up that manages to be entertaining throughout its entire adventure

Hamsterdam aims to give the players a sweet, pleasant experience, and you can feel that by its wonderful character design and great control mechanism and combat system. But in the end, the very repetitive gameplay really hurts the whole experience. That said, If you can deal with this issue or if you are willing to just ignore it, you'll probably have some fun saving the city with Pimm.

I think the developers of Hamsterdam are on the right track, and I look forward to any future games they make using lessons learned from this one, but I cannot see myself returning to the streets of Hamsterdam any time soon.

There's a lot of potential in the game's premise and presentation that could well be capitalised on for any future games, but here it feels like a bit of a wasted opportunity. Add to this the lengthy load times and technical issues, and this is game you'd be best off avoiding.

As the game never really switches up its formula, it's not long before fatigue sets in.
