PS4: Helldivers – Review

One of 2015’s top Playstation exclusives


“We’re going to need a bigger gun”

“Helldivers” is home to one of the most unforgiving and chaotic twin-stick shooters in recent memory, blending bullet hell with inspiration from movies like “Starship Troopers” and “Alien” to make one of the best 4 player co-op games for the ps4.

The people at Arrowhead Games Studio have given birth to a bloody, fast paced, death grind of a child. The game is a solid online co-op experience with one sadistic twist:

Friendly fire is most definitely on!!.

With its randomly generated planets, and a seemingly never-ending range of objectives to complete, never in my 40 hours of HELL did I ever think there was nothing left for me to do.

The online aspects of the game really give the experience a sense of progression, from killing big-ass bugs (like in Starship Troopers ) to annoying as f*ck cyborgs and, after all that, you still have time to contribute to the community features like defending Super Earth and upgrading your radically diverse load-outs, from mech suits to tanks. I can say with confidence that “Helldivers” is a must own for all lovers of twin stick shooters and bullet hell addicts.

Pros

Quick online matches

A worthwhile co-op experience

A sense of online progression

Diversity of objectives

Cons

Helldivers can only function with an active community

Friendly fire is not for everyone
