    "I found that it's very addictive to the point where you're playing it every chance you get to advance further in the game and collect more items. I thought the difficulty level is high so more amateur people probably would not enjoy it as much but if you're up for the challenge, Enter The Gungeon is a worthy game to buy."

    "No matter which of the five difficulty levels you choose, the basics of the game stay the same. You shoot your enemies then gather cogs from destroyed enemies and frequently activate Vaunt. Vaunt is a special mode that creates a temporary shield around your ship that absorbs bullets while doubling your damage inflicted and score. I like the Gunner ship the best!"

    "If you like Bullet Hell, stay away from this one. It is way too cute for my tastes and obviously meant for much younger people. It should be a kid's game since it looks like a cartoon and has cute monsters and music. Not for adults."

    "This is one awesome little arcade stick shooter type of game. If you like these kinds of top down shooters then you will be really happy with this game. Once I started playing I had a hard time putting it down. The shooting action is very fluid and I just can't seem to get enough of the action!"

    "Superhot is a decent PC shooter game but the problem is, it's overpriced for what you get. The levels are often repetitive and once you've mastered the knowledge necessary, you'll soon get bored with it as the challenge is shallow at best. Good to pass the time but really nothing more than that."

    "Nier: Automata is a game that came out of nowhere this year to be one of the best bullet hell games of all time. Not only is the action fun and engrossing, but the story will suck you in as well. This game was a great and unexpected surprise for me this year and it has fantastic replay value as well."

    "This is a very fun game to play on the PC. It's storyline is meh but who cares because you get to shoot at things and just have fun. I'll admit that I am not the most accurate shot but I am getting better. It's a really fast paced game so you want to be focused and shoot quickly. My favorite part of the game is the ability to mutate new limbs from the radiation that you collect in the wastelands. It's always fun to see what new limbs you may grow. "

    "I'm not at all a fan of these type of games myself. Does look very interesting though and can be another game that users spend a lot of time playing due to all the details and extended gameplay. I would definitely spend a little time to play it just to try it out. I'm sure though for people who are into playing games such as this, it really would solve a need and users would spend some serious time to be the best at it."
