Deep Rock Galactic is a hugely fun multiplayer romp full of humour, character, dramatic action, and fun foes. It’s made all the better for its excellent voice acting, creative weapon design, and extensive customisation options. It’s a game that the devs have clearly enjoyed making and that makes it all the better for playing.

A clear and distinct spin on 4-player co-op FPS with atmosphere, ingenuity… and real navigational problems.

Deep Rock Galactic is the best kind of four-player co-op game. Exciting combat, great missions, and lots of upgrades make this one a winner.

A fantastic cooperative experience that delves deep into one narrow corner of fantasy tropes – the dwarven love of hard work and pretty rocks.

Ooh, aah, that's how it always starts, then later there's running and screaming. Deep Rock Galactic can be deceptively easy going at times, right up until the swarms of bugs come crawling out of the inky darkness to besiege you and your friends. Who knew space dwarf mining could be so fun?

Deep Rock Galactic is proof enough that keeping focus and executing on a single idea can lead to excellence. Ghost Ship Games debut title is cooperative bliss, and a must-play for all fans of the genre. For Rock and Stone!

It’s a winner. Sixteen tons of detail, sixteen tons of character, sixteen tons of riotous bug blasting, spelunking co-operative goodness. Deep Rock Galactic is a company I’ve got no qualms about selling my soul to for hours more to come.

If you're looking for your next co-op addiction, Deep Rock Galactic could well be it. Brilliantly balanced character classes and engaging, emergent missions make for highly enjoyable underground antics, particularly with pals. Some networking issues and perhaps overly complex design decisions could frustrate, but it's a game worth sticking with for the moments where it all comes together. With replay value through the roof and satisfying gameplay at its core, this is one rock solid game to dig into.

Anyone fond of multi-player centric games that require teamwork and likes to fill a specific role will almost certainly find something to enjoy in Deep Rock Galactic. It's a great way to spend time with friends and has a lot of content depending on how much you mind doing the same things over and over again. Anyone who strongly dislikes repetition will probably get sick of it after a while, though.

Rock and stone forever! This Deep Rock Galactic review highlights the exciting gameplay full of humorous camaraderie. With a swath of lackluster multiplayer looters to choose from, is Deep Rock a diamond in the rough for the genre?

There is of course complexity and depth to be found, Deep Rock Galactic is as far from Pong as any videogame of the past few decades. But the general flow of a mission beneath the surface follows a pattern of exploration, mining, and combat even if the goal is to source x amount of shiny green Morkite or find and destroy a pair of Dreadnoughts.

Extremely thrilling and addictive, surprisingly polished, and packed with content, Deep Rock Galactic is a delicious treat, and a great riff on some well trodden gameplay concepts.

Ultimately, Deep Rock Galactic is a fantastic game for those who like Left 4 Dead or games like it. The squad based missions are infinitely more fun with friends though, and similar to Sea of Thieves the game is more enjoyable with others.

Deep Rock Galactic has all what it takes to become an iconic co-op action game. But only the time will tell if it really is.

Deep Rock Galactic offers some enticing exploration, as discovering randomly generated caves can be a thrill each time, and the unique abilities of each class are fun to combine. But things quickly begin to grow stale, like the air this far down into the earth, with repetitive missions and little reason to grind out your experience levels.

If we were to define a range, and then define Deep Rock Galactic using that range, we would have Minecraft on one side, and Left 4 Dead and Killing Floor on the other. Deep Rock Galactic is a game very similar, yet very different game from these two extremes. If you grab freedom of choice and action of Minecraft, mix it with some Objective-based gameplay from Left 4 Dead and add the theme of survival but not a lot; As a result, you’ll be experiencing Deep Rock Galactic – An exemplary combination of teamwork and free playstyle, which is executed optimally and has a scent of Dwarven sarcasm. Although, due to essential differences DRG has with the extremes of its range, this title can be a Hit-or-Miss, even for those who absolutely love Co-Op games. The biggest difference is the lack of a grand purpose and a final goal for the players
