Cryogear Critic Reviews

Cryogear is a decent title with delightful graphics and exploration and manages to be enjoyable, despite basic combat and story elements.

Cryogear brings some interesting new ideas to the genre, but unfortunately it doesn't execute them well enough to really stand out. There's a lot of depth to the gameplay, but most of it feels unnecessary and doesn't influence the gameplay substantially. I'd love to see some of these ideas implemented more effectively, but as is it's hard to widely recommend.

Cryogear is in no way a bad game. For fans of the Metroidvania genre this is worth picking up as it is an enjoyable game. However, for those trying to pick out and find a few Metroidvanias that really stand out I don't know if this will be one of them. You can definitely spend upwards of 8-12 hours with Cryogear, if you want to complete everything, which may be enticing for some. However, the combat's a bit bland, there's not much of a story, and the visual and audio design need some work. I think Cryogear is a good fit on the Switch it just needed more time in development to give it some more personality.
