Furi is a shoot-em-up game, where you play as a mysterious man trying to escape from a highly advanced prison.
Pro Each character is done very well
The characters designed by Takashi Okazaki (creator of Afro Samurai) fit Furi’s cyberpunk themed world really well. Each one has a great background and unique style of art that really meshes with their fighting style. On top of that, the levels designs reflect each boss character’s personal hell, further adding to their characterization.
Pro A boss battles-only game
You'll have to immediately learn all mechanics such as dodging, parrying, and attacking to beat them. From there on it's all about noticing patterns and maximizing the time you spend attacking. You also need to consider your positioning at all times and carefully plan your movements. All of this is more difficult because you have to do it a breakneck speed. When you finally manage to beat a boss it feels like an accomplishment.
Con Very steep difficulty curve
Furi starts out easy, teaching you the various mechanics to beat the bosses. When the tutorial fight's over, each new battle gets increasingly more difficult. Bosses have more health, more phases, more abilities, and more patterns you have to memorize.You can set the difficulty to "Promenade", which makes it a lot easier, but will prevent you from earning any trophies.
