Resogun isn't a game you should be playing, it's a game you need to be playing. Check out The Koalition's Jasmine Gipson on why PS4's new game deserves every bit of attention and praise it's been getting.
It has been a while since I've played a game without realizing how much time has passed. Resogun has given me that excitement and addictive feeling that many gamers know very well. I am not ashamed to admit that I played until I started to feel the beginnings of a blister on my thumb. How often can you say that? The last time I remember playing a console game to the point of blisters was the first Mortal Kombat on the Sega Genesis with my brother. I'm not saying that I haven't enjoyed other games since then but this is one of those games that sucks you in and if you're a completionist like myself you just want to keep playing until you've perfected your style of gameplay with each level. This is just one of those games that I can play over and over again and not get tired of it.
Resogun has received a lot of attention and it deserves all of the praise that it have been given. This game has brought back something that I haven't seen in a while, an old school shooter that harkens back to my time as a kid in the 80s. The unique thing about Resogun is that it doesn't subsisting solely on nostalgia; it's a game that stands on its own. It's fast paced, beautiful and exciting to play. As an added bonus, it integrates the gameplay dialogue with the PS4's Dual Shock 4 speaker which gives another dimension to your gameplay.
The premise of Resogun is very simple to explain; you're a pilot trying to save the last humans from various alien attacks that are taking place on their planet. In single player mode, you can play on one of four difficulty levels with two different types of play, Arcade or Single Level. There are three different ships to choose from, each with a different profile to accommodate various styles of gameplay. Each ship has bombs, boost and the ability to go into overdrive. Once you've made all of your choices you begin playing a three phase level that culminates in a boss battle and the subsequent Armageddon of the planet. The game currently has five levels, each increasing in craziness as you go along...
