Exit the Gungeon
Top Critic Average
Exit the Gungeon's random gun-switching can be frustrating but it's also a chaotic challenge that makes each run fun.
Is it another Enter the Gungeon? No, it isn't. But as a quick arcade romp, it's a blast. It shows that even when shifting genres, Dodge Roll knows how to craft a good roguelike and keep players wanting to punish themselves more and more with each run.
Exit the Gungeon rescues the thug style of its predecessor but its main mechanics can cause a high degree of frustration in the player due to different design decisions.However, we spend a very entertaining time in a world that will be more than familiar to the fans of Enter the Gungeon, drawn with magnificent detail and care.

Now with much more precise controls than its original release on iOS, Exit the Gungeon is a solid spin-off to Dodge Roll's indie darling that can often be a little too frustrating for its own good.
Those expecting the quality and polish of its predecessor will be disappointed with Exit the Gungeon. It's too visually clustered and the new mechanics can be more frustrating than fun. Still, for a short burst of rogue-like goodness, you could do worse.
While I still prefer the original because of the overall size of rooms, I’m impressed with what Dodge Roll did with this sequel.
Exit the Gungeon is ultimately neither a good bullet hell game, nor a particularly fun experience. All in all, it’s a pretty bite size offering that lacks the variety one would expect from a full PC title.
Most of the content, including music, items, and enemies, is directly transferred from the world of Enter The Gungeon, making the product even more secondary than it previously seemed. On PC, Exit the Gungeon has already experienced several patches, after which it became more playable, but it is still noticeable that this is a quickly molded game, released in the hope of hype around the first one and high sales.

Enter The Gungeon die-hards will be instantly familiar with the weird and wonderful world presented by Exit The Gungeon, but they might be taken aback by the shift in gameplay. This is a finely honed action-platformer that adds a new dimension to the blasting and dodge rolling. It's not always a flawless transition, and this is a significantly less rich and rewarding experience than the original. But those after a retro-tinged arcade challenge should by all means lock and load.
Exit the Gungeon is neither as sharp nor as complete as it could be, but its foundation is so strong that it can be great fun regardless.
