Dex, a dark and charming 2D title is a veritable mix of genres and gameplay pieces, making it worth taking the time to play.

Overall, Dex is an excellent take on a cyberpunk Deus Ex game, and it managed to accomplish that with a smaller development budget.

Dex lacks in some areas, but I think the overall experience was pretty enjoyable. Being able to make your own choices and have different outcomes adds a lot of replay value. (Not a game for kids)

A gritty, cyberpunk action-RPG that doles out punishment and interesting story-telling in equal measure.

DEX offers a complete package for those who like the RPG genre thanks to the well built mix of action and stealth. Exploring every corner of Harbor Prime is rewarding, even if it's not very complex. Dex's customization opens new paths according to the priority you give to each of her traits, and her versatility in combat makes the battles exciting. Besides that, the tone of mystery and the initial sequence of action already catches the player and presents a little of what can be expected in the course of the interesting adventure.

When it comes to actually providing a fun experience, that's a bit more shaky. While the exploration based framework and interconnected world comes off very well, the combat is such an unavoidable drag, and since that is such a core part of gameplay, everything is brought down with it. There's still a lot of value to be found if you're a cyberpunker, but otherwise, the future is bleak.

With a phenomenal Cyberpunk aesthetic and fantastic characters, Dex is close to being an incredible experience. Lackluster combat and hacking let it down, but it still has a lot to offer for fans of the grim Sci-fi setting.

Dex is gorgeous to look at, has a captivating story to engage in and is downright frustrating when you need to fight your way out of danger.

If other elements and mechanics of the game would move along with its amazing world and characters, we may have had something more than a decent game.

Offering a surprising combination of Deus Ex and Metroid, Dex is a good alternative for those who are waiting for Cyberpunk 2077. Although it is not a classic with bulky fighting mechanics and cliché story,this game deserves the attention of Nintendo Switch gamers.

Dex is a fairly correct game. If you have a predilection for everything that is cyberpunk and are looking for a light experience to take with you, it can be a good choice.

If you’re a fan of cyberpunk games and don’t mind some dodgy combat I’d definitely suggest checking out the game, but otherwise I don’t think this will be the game for you.

Dex is a bit of a mixed bag. It’s atmosphere and characters are good enough for anyone to dive into. However, the combat, hacking, and menu systems are flawed. This will be a deal-breaker for those who want to uncover the truth but simply can’t get good. Dex does not lend itself properly to compliment its difficulty with unpolished mechanics, and the story alone won’t compensate this issue for many players.

While shaky in the opening act, Dex ultimately comes into its own and provides a short (but worthwhile) cyberpunk experience.

While Dex may have a few flaws overall, it is a solid game that is filled with freedom to play how you want as you uncover the secrets of Harbour Prime.
