The action pops and is excellently crafted. You always feel like you are on the verge of making more progress, which is a great feeling for a roguelike

Nonetheless, every time I returned to Fury Unleashed I found myself enjoying what I played. It's maybe not something that sucked me in and kept me glued to the screen until the end, but it entertained whenever I gave it a chance. For its price, it's a worthwhile diversion. I just wouldn't be surprised if nothing inside you gets unleashed.

Apart from some at times tiny writing on the Switch handheld, Fury Unleashed looks sublime, has riffage for days, and represents an excellent run and gun wormhole to disappear down.

All in all, Fury Unleashed provided me with several entertaining afternoons and also brought me back to the past. It’s very fun, hard to play well, and the randomness of the levels was a treat for those looking for a challenge.

Its biggest problem then is that it's over all too quickly. Of course, rogue-lites are designed to be replayed over and over again. However, with just four comic books to work through, you'll see everything Fury Unleashed has to offer much quicker than you might expect.

An awesome, compelling but repetitive rogue-lite shoot 'em up with a lot of enemies to kill, and a comic-style story to discover, game after game.

If Fury Unleashed does not really shine with the charisma of its universe and its artistic direction quite insipid, he offers a good game experience that offers good feelings. A nice release.

Fury Unleashed takes the central gameplay loops of the likes of Dead Cells and Enter the Gungeon and infuses them with pulpy '90s action platforming resulting in one of the best roguelites currently available on Nintendo Switch.

Though it doesn't reinvent the rogeulike genre, Fury Unleashed makes a name for itself through its comic book style and action-heavy combo system that relies on agile shooting and swift thinking.

In my honest opinion, Fury Unleashed is a fun game that stumbles to get the best part of roguelike games right.

Fury Unleashed brings you inside the world of animated comics and offers a gameplay that is a love letter to Metal Slug, Contra and the modern roguelite games.

Fury Unleashed is a fantastic distraction title that may have released in the right real-world window while we all struggle with the staying at home setup of 2020. It’s also an easy game to just pick up and play with mechanics easy enough to master, but packed with a layer of challenge that is subtle and rewarding.

Kudos to Awesome Games Studios for spending the 5 years of development on Fury Unleashed because it shows in the fluidity of gameplay. I really wish there was even more content to be had but with the effective procedural randomness and high difficulty I keep coming back for more.

The core mechanics of running and gunning while maintaining a high combo multiplier is satisfying, and taps into a primitive reptilian part of our brain. You feel eager to maintain the flow and the speed in which you move and range of abilities you get to kill, perfectly compliments the violent and irreverent tone.

Fury Unleashed is one of the best indie games of 2020, and one of the most excellent examples of the roguelite genre this generation. While it may be on the short side, this action co-op title should satisfy fans of Metal Slug and then some. Cool comic-inspired visuals, an inspiring story, and compelling moment-to-moment gameplay make this a stellar shooter.

Fury Unleashed is a step better than what you would expect from a generic-looking run-and-gun action game. Its intelligent premise and sheer adherence to fun in all its forms makes it a great game for unwinding or chasing that elusive feeling of flow. Say what you want about Fury and his two-dimensional escapades, but Awesome Games Studio had a clear vision for their game and executed it to an impressive degree of success.

Fury Unleashed may not be the best game you've ever played in Rouge-like genre, but it's really fun and engaging. The comicbook-like design is quite creative and the variety of weapons, smooth platforming and challenging bosses keeps you going through the well-designed levels. It's classic but it also feels fresh.

On the other end of the scale are those who would not touch games like Dead Cells despite its gorgeous visuals. Those will consider Fury Unleashed a waste of time and not even the easier game mode might convince them otherwise. This mode is ideal for streamers as presented by the producers themselves, allowing them to focus not just on the game, but their audience as well. And this solution is brilliant since watching it played by someone who mastered the game mechanics, can make Fury Unleashed more fun than actually playing it.

If a fan of over-the top action, Fury Unleashed is an easy recommendation.
