Beat Slayer Review Cons:

  • Cannot remap controls.
  • Using the mouse and keyboard is not an ideal way to play.
  • Obvious but it’s a game that is hard to play with little or no sound.
  • It’s a hard to habit to not just spam attacks, doing that leads to quick deaths.
  • You need to learn and retrain yourself to not only time hits and Dashes but to also move around as normal.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
