The latest day one Xbox Game Pass launch for November 2022 is Gungrave G.O.R.E, which serves as a successor to the old Gungrave games on PS2. It's the first entry since Gungrave VR, and it's also the series' debut on Xbox!
Generacion Xbox (7.5/10)
"It is not perfect, nor does it pretend to be, but if you forgive its shortcomings, you will [have] a very entertaining time."
"Go into Gungrave Gore with an open mind, the mindset that you’re going to kick some ass in an old school action game, and maybe, after a sale. The reaction to this thing is going to be all over the place (even from action enthusiasts), but once everything started to fire on all cylinders, I was having a lot of fun: amid some technical concerns."
"While the game can be fun at points, its archaic and dated design choices can make for an overall frustrating experience. Its combat doesn't require much thought, and the game can be "difficult" for the wrong reasons. Still, it's high points are still noteworthy highlights for the overall experience, and when everything works properly, you do feel as badass as the main character is supposed to be."
"Gungrave G.O.R.E oozes style and has a fantastic combat system, but a lack of variety, aggravating difficulty spikes, and often-frustrating design decisions keep it from reaching its full potential."
"There’s simply not enough variety to be found in this action-packed third-person shooter. Eventually it begins to feel like a test of your endurance rather than your gaming skills."
Push Square (4/10)
"If you're someone who heard "a new Gungrave" and got excited, this is a game for you. For what it's worth, it nails that. It genuinely feels like a lost PS2 game, and that's the kind of thing we love. Although, the original game had the benefit of only being around two hours long, while G.O.R.E. clocks in at about 12. However, we can't in good faith recommend someone to spend £45 on this, outside of those with an affinity for the series."
Gungrave G.O.R.E is currently suffering from a pretty low Metacritic score of 53 for Xbox Series X, although the PlayStation 5 average is closer to the 60 mark. However, it still sounds like there's some fun to be had with the game, and don't forget you can try it out for yourself right now as part of the Xbox Game Pass library!
We'll also have a review of Gungrave G.O.R.E to share here at Pure Xbox in the near future.
