Bite the Bullet is a great game in theory, but framerate issues, loose controls, and oversized maps make it hard to recommend.

Bite the Bullet is a 2D side-scrolling shooter with an interesting eating mechanic. Choosing your food preferences and acquiring skills based on them is neat and clever, as is managing calorie, fat, and protein intake while devouring foes. Levels and enemies can get repetitive, but it's not that big of a deal.

Bite the Bullet is a game of great ideas that are hamstrung by terrible controls, performance issues, and a flow of combat that's at odds with the very gimmick that makes it stand out from the pack. All of that makes for an experience that bits off far more than it's capable of chewing.

Despite its flaws, Bite the Bullet is a fun experience that we’d recommend if you’re a fan of franchises like Metal Slug.
