Critic Reviews for Dead End Job

I can’t knock Dead End Job for anything other than its redundant level design and mechanics, as it really does succeed in every other aspect pretty well.

Dead End Job on the Nintendo Switch is a twin-stick shooter that gets part of the combat system right, with its direct and simple action and whose art style will find a place with fans of 1990s animation. That said, the game's areas are way too repetitive and monotonous, and several aspects just don't stand up to what is expected, with the result being a work that is often difficult to enjoy.

Despite having a lot of fun with Dead End Job, it’s hard to ignore where it falls short.

Its art style, based on the overly detailed gross out humor of 90s cartoons, may vibe well with some people, though I truthfully am not one of them. It's a game that is clearly trying, but sadly misses the mark, making it feel very much like a career that isn't really going anywhere. What do you call that again?.

Dead End Job is a great game that takes parts of Luigi's Mansion and parts from the roguelike genre and merges them wonderfully into this very stylish and surprisingly entertaining ghost-busting game.

Fighting and catching ghosts is fun, but not too long. It is repetitive and without higher motivation.

Dead End Job is a fun title to play in your free time. The game looks good and the gameplay is simple and engaging. Although it lacks originality and after a while it can become repetitive and boring, but the soundtracks, funny narrative and simple gameplay won't let you leave the game before finishing it.

If you have an off-the-wall sense of humour and want to enjoy a simple twin-stick shooter, you'll have a great time with Dead End Job.
