Guns, Gore & Cannoli Reviews
Considering Guns, Gore & Cannoli costs £6.99, it packs quite a punch for the price. There's a lot of fun to be had in the time the game lasts, and it looks great to boot. The exaggerated voice acting fits perfectly with the tone of the title and the story is surprisingly entertaining too. There's never a dull moment in Guns, Gore & Cannoli, and it ends just at the right time too. Vinnie may not be the most likeable protagonist in a game but he knows how to get the job done.
Guns, Gore, and Cannoli is a great, if not short romp. The art style pops and the game play is smooth. Just be aware that it can get frustrating attempting to fly solo. Outside of that I definitely recommend checking it out. It knows what it is from the first level and never tries to be anything else.
Guns, Gore & Cannoli is a fun way to spend a few hours, especially if you have two or three friends over. It won't set the world on fire and isn't without its faults, but it knows what it is and doesn't try to do too much.
While there are some faults that could use addressing (particularly with the lack of online play), Guns, Gore and Cannoli is an inspired ride, a top-notch mixture of 40's nostalgia and zombie-killing fun. If you're smart, you'll bring some buddies along to dish out the carnage alongside you, if only to see what true mayhem looks like. In a good way, of course.
Guns, Gore & Cannoli is a reasonably proficient side-scrolling shooter that grows somewhat tiresome through repetitive combat and unpleasantly clichéd character design. It's an enjoyably brainless diversion - especially in multiplayer - but it's one that only really works in small doses.
Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 is a wonderful sequel that knows how to improve the level design. Too bad it is shorter than the previous game.

Ultimately, we feel the short length of the campaign and a few mechanical grievances are what keep it from higher praise. It's not a bad game whatsoever, but it's far from being remarkable.
The cartoon-style animation is fresh and pleasant on the eye. There's a great amount of attention to detail and plenty of variation in character models
Guns, Gore and Cannoli is quite an entertaining side-scrolling shooter platformer. The 1920s mob theme, the undead, and the simple yet solid mechanics make it quite enjoyable and you'll have a blast going through the story either alone or with friends locally.
A fun, quirky art style? Check. Enjoyable mechanics and satisfying animations? Check. Four-player co-op? Check. It's difficult to give the game an especially high score, no matter how much I enjoyed it, but rest assured that if you're looking for a small title to fill some time with friends - or you're a fan of the genre as a whole - then it's well worth a look.
Unfortunately, these technical problems make it difficult to recommend Guns, Gore & Cannoli on PC in its current state. It's a real shame because underneath is a slick and well-designed side-scrolling shooter that pays homage to its noir and grindhouse inspiration while carving out an identity of its own.
In the end, Guns, Gore & Cannoli is a pretty good side-scrolling shoot-em-up. The action is intense and challenging due to the mob mentality of the enemies and the sheer quantity of foes. The gunplay is solid, so each gun feels useful, and the gameplay flow is just right, whether you're playing solo or with others. If you can live with some projectile and platforming flaws and are a fan of the classic side-scrolling, run-and-gun titles, you'll have some fun with Guns, Gore & Cannoli.
By not breaking the mould, Guns, Gore & Cannoli is nothing but a safe enjoyable experience and well worth your time.
With plenty of quality content for a reasonable asking price, Guns, Gore & Cannoli, is a steal so what are you waiting for, go and buy the game, capisce!
For its few hours of playtime Guns, Gore and Cannoli delivers precisely what its title suggests, though not much more. It’s a bit more of a challenge taking it all on by yourself, and certainly with some friends the carnage can be more fun as a group experience. While its memory probably won’t linger with you for a long time it’s still a fun diversion if you’re looking for some arcade-style shooting action… and ZOMBIES!
Guns, Gore and Cannoli is a solid take on the run-and-gun genre. While its unique combination of zombies and gangsters is impressively illustrated through its detailed and eye-catching visuals, sadly the gameplay doesn’t feel as special. It might start out on a strong opening note, but slowly falls prone to repetition and like an infected, shambling zombie, the experience starts to rot a little the longer it’s around.
It's a blast to play and it does exactly what it says on the tin, nothing more, and nothing less. How many games do you know that have that kind of honesty?
In a surprising turn of events, GG&C presents a humour riddled take on gangsters vs zombies. It's snappy and great fun with friends at a low price. It's hard not to pass up an Italian zombie mash-up of Metal Slug.
Guns, Gore, & Cannoli is a stellar SHUMP that belongs in the same sentence as run-n-guns like Metal Slug and Gunstar Heroes.
