Cuphead is dripping with charm from the hand-drawn animation to the lovely soundtrack. I am not normally into such frantic games but beating this on normal was such a thrilling experience. Cuphead became one of my favorite games of all time and I look forward to the DLC!

What is there to say that hasn't been said? The highlights are the art and the music and that's obvious from the trailers. The game does lack content in my opinion, but really is worth the trip down this unique and meticulously created game.
Decent to a strong 8.
Hard but absolutely worth it. I don't like the actual run and gun levels but the boss levels are all incredible and make the game. Whenever I'd beat a boss I'd shout "YES!" in victory. 

I only wish more games with unique animation styles and characters will become a thing (and popular).

I recently picked up this game when it launched on Switch. For a long time I wasn't even aware what the game was about, nor was I aware of the games infamous difficulty. Throughout the past year I have found myself playing a lot of From Software games and appreciating the level of difficulty and feeling of accomplishment you get for finally beating a boss. Despite Cuphead being so far from a Soulsbourne game in gameplay and the Souls comparison getting staler by the minute; this game fits nicely in that hard but fair gameplay I've come to love. 

First things first, this port is excellent. I pretty much played exclusively in handheld mode on my switch and never had any drop in framerate, input lag and the game looks truly amazing. From everything like the hand drawn characters and animations to the lovely backdrops of the levels, it plays homage to its influences perfectly. Alongside the lovely visuals is a soundtrack that booms personality and has obviously been made by people with a massive appreciation and knowledge about 1930s cartoons. More importantly than these points though, is that the game is just really fucking fun. The difficulty progression was for the most part great and I definitely myself gradually getting better at the game the more bosses I defeated. Despite the difficulty I never felt like the game was "too hard" or that it was unfair to the player which is the most important element to a game like this IMO. Every boss you kill gives you some feeling of success and finally working out a good tactic to tackle a hard fight always felt great.

The game isn't insanely long, it took me just under 15 hours, but I've heard it can take as low as 8 - I sucked. What it lacks in length it makes up for in solid gameplay and one of the most fun experiences I've had gaming in a long time. Plus the replayability is great with different difficulties, ratings and items to collect. On top of this it has a co op mode too. At the price of 16.99 I'd be hard pressed to give you any reason to not buy this game, unless you're not into challenging games.

Cuphead is a Jump & run with crisp shoot ' em up-and-run & gun levels and a coherent, bizarre and wittily animated 1930s cartoon graphic style so stunning and beautiful you instantly fall in love with the Game. The scraped Up piano Climper in typical jazz and ragtime pieces also plays its Part in the Atmosphere. The Main Focus is on the Boss fights, of the sidescrorolling Run & Gun levels there are only a Handful. Compared to the crazy Confrontations, which always take place in several phases, a Large Part of the Running sections pales in, although outstanding moments remain in the memory there too-for example, when Cuphead runs on the Ceiling In a Horror cabinet or by a Troll is haunted through a Ruin. The Heroes ' Movement Repertoire is perfectly attuned to the Demands: Cuphead and Mugman shoot, jump and travel distances by Boost. If you Press The Jump button as soon as you land on pink marked Objects, your Super Bar will be charged-with it, you will unleash particularly powerful Attacks. The classic horizontal Shoot-em-up is really tricky, so tricky that you will surely have to start the same Level several times, and one or the other "curse" Escapes you. Nevertheless, each Level can be managed with enough Endurance. This Game is so beautiful and, above all, creative that you just have to have it! So please buy, buy and buy again, otherwise you will miss something!
