Critic Reviews for HyperParasite

There's a lot to like about HyperParasite; bombastic action, smooth gunplay and literally thousands of 1980's pop culture references are all good fun. It's just a shame that its spoiled by an overly punishing roguelite structure, asking you to play thorough the same content again and again to make any noticeable progress, rendering the pacing of the game an interminable slog.

HyperParasite is an extremely difficult shooter / brawler but with a very good atmosphere. It may despair you because of dying again and again, but its battles are always fun thanks to the many characters you can control.

HyperParasite has a wonderful look and feel, but is marred by its “rogue” elements. It doesn’t do anything to push the genre forward and feels like yet another game that I would likely never finish due to tedium.

HyperParasite is a good concept that is broken down by a low level of product testing. The inability to save the game as you progress through the stages and repeatedly return to the very beginning with the same boss irritates. Local co-op and minor problems with management spoil in theory an interesting project that you can try, but only if you are a fan of the genre, and all the other games have already finished.

Local co-op doesn’t really ease the repetition, although your pals will certainly appreciate the pop culture references.

Exterminate all humans in this funny, complusive, frenetic rogue-lite classical shooter set in a crazier version of the Eighties.

The difficulty level feels unfair despite interesting gameplay.

If you’re not too fussed about detailed visuals, then HyperParasite will no doubt keep you hooked with its unique parasite gameplay mechanic and exciting gun-play.
