Welcome to the Future. It’s gonna kill you.
Mirror’s Edge, Hotline Miami, Genji from Overwatch… these are all things that came to reviewers’ minds after their time with Ghostrunner. Yet while it’s reminiscent of many other fast-paced and stylish games, Ghostrunner is truly a unique single-player experience.
At its core, Ghostrunner is an action-platformer set in a dystopian cyberpunk world. The game plays at a breakneck pace in the first-person perspective, and the wide variety of enemies, powers, and katana slashes keeps the gameplay fast, fresh, and consistently fun. Not to mention the instantaneous respawns… which you’ll definitely be grateful for because this game is HARD.
