Furi will be out tomorrow and we have been able to review the game on both PS4 and PC. As usual, you will find the verdict and the +/- section alongside homemade screenshots and videos.
Furi is undeniably an incredibly well-crafted game, where gameplay is almost flawless and mechanics are particularly innovating. It's above all a game where skills are required and patterns must be learned and understood in order to complete. Provided you give yourself the means, it's also a very gratifying experience and we have loved every single second of it. With its great soundtrack and art style, the only reason that could keep you away from the game is its genre itself, as not everyone enjoys boss fighters, but as it will be offered on PS+ tomorrow, console owners should definitely give it a try. As for PC gamers, it is still worth a buy if you like a challenge as it should take you more than 10 hours to complete.
On the upside
+ Impressive learning curve
+ Excellent gameplay mechanics
+ A lesson in boss fighting
+ Smart and varied patterns
+ Gratifying victories
+ Solid story and unexpected ending
+ Good longevity and replay value
+ English and Japanese voices
+ Splendid electro soundtrack
+ Great art style
+ Challenging in the default mode
On the downside
- The easy difficulty setting
- Some tearing and occasional frame drops on PS4
- Projectiles are a bit too bright, which can affect visibility
- Unlockable artworks are a bit disappointing (black & white sketches) EDIT : You can also unlock colored artworks with the highest difficulty setting actually
Note: Screenshots are from the PS4 version and videos from the PC version.
