The game will only take a few hours to beat for experienced players that are used to the older style of platformer like Mega Man. But even with this short playtime it provides a large amount of content and many bosses that rarely feel the same. The game is also beautiful to look at with hand drawn animation running at 60fps. However, do not let the beautiful aesthetics fool you. The game may look childish and innocent, but it is brutally difficult and may take a few attempts to defeat your first boss if you don't know what you're doing, some people couldn't even complete the tutorial.
Cuphead was something different and good that happened in 2017. While the entire year was full of disappointment with AAA games, and indie games like Cuphead was a game we needed to remind us that not everything is bad, but is also hard. Cuphead is loyal to 30's and 40's cartoon, mixed with old but good game mechanic that make the game a little addicting, also, with that, the developers added a hard game that punish you with every dead, and reward you with every level completed or boss defeated. Everything said before, is better with the amazing soundtrack that this game has. Seriously, is just amazing. Recommended. Better with controller.
Cuphead is hard, hard like dark souls, which means its easy if you know how to play it right. Graphics are beautifully hand-crafted frame by frame, so it isn't a surprise why it took so long for this game to come out. It brings me on a nostalgia trip to remember what the cartoons were on 90s and how happy time that was. Easily the best game of 2017.
Don't be confused. This game IS hard as hell, but there is a reason that it's so enjoyable. Many people relate it to Dark Souls because of it's difficulty, but it's nothing of the sort. This game is a 30's cartoon-style platforming bullet-hell that kicks your ass, then pulls you back in for more. The design is near flawless, the animation is beautiful, the controls are tight and the difficulty at time is nearly unforgiving. But, I wouldn't have it any other way. Definitely a 5 star and must buy
Cuphead is an amazing game that has been hand animated from scratch to feel just like 1930s cartoons. It's gameplay is also amazing with it levels being boss battles or run and guns. (With a few exceptions). Some people may find Cuphead a bit hard. There are 3 difficulties, simple, regular and expert (the latter being unlocked when you beat the game). Regular mode in some levels can be quite hard and for anyone just starting the game, can even seem impossible. But playing in simple mode doesn't give you that same rush you get from beating a level in regular, it also doesn't progress you in the game. Overall, Cuphead is an amazing game to play with brilliant 1930s cartoon graphics that can get a bit hard at times! 5/5
