Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Amazing art and atmosphere
Pro Controls are convenient
The keyboard controls are intuitive and just feel right. It can be a little difficult at times but it's a fair kind of difficulty, not the game screwing you over. This is part of the reason why the boss sections are so fun.
The upgrade system is nice and there are many secrets to be found.
Pro Great soundtrack
Very nicely made music.
Pro Great Metroidvania gameplay
Pro Keeps player coming back for more
In order to perfect a level there needs to be a lot of abuse beforehand, a lot of deaths. But once it all falls into place there is no better feeling of mastering a level.
Pro Concise tutorial
Dustforce has a very detailed tutorial that teaches the player all of the ins and outs of the gameplay.
Con Boring combat system
The combat system is kinda boring and repetitive. It's just about mashing buttons.
Con Only local multiplayer
Sadly the multiplayer aspect of Dustforce is local only. For PC gaming to exclude online multiplayer (when there are multiplayer modes) is an odd choice as the platform lends itself better to online play more so than sharing a single monitor.
