Is It Any Good?

With its frantic gameplay, tight controls, and excellent production values (gorgeous graphics and a great techno soundtrack), Resogun is a fun blast from the past. Consider it a modern interpretation of the classic arcade game Defender but with three ships to choose from, each with three unique abilities. With only five stages at launch, it lacks the depth and replayability of pricier PS4 games, but Resogun is still a fun and frantic arcade shooter for late tweens and up. Note: Resogun's online cooperative mode was not available at the time of writing but is planned for an update.
