Topic: DUSK Review - A Lo-fi Horror Masterpiece

The concept of the retro shooter, that being an experience that hearkens back to the genre's beginnings in the 1990s, can be more than a simple throwback to a bygone era or style. DUSK proves that the structure and framework and even lo-fi look of the genre's past can lead to truly memorable experiences that feel fresh and fun all the way here in 2018.

It’s this balance of inspiration and creativity and variety that makes Dusk an exceptional shooter and an immersive horror. One that sits alongside its peers rather than simply playing homage to. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that in the pure action stakes - Dusk has the goods. Challenging without ever feeling cheap, it follows a traditional structure and framework that focuses more on fun and sheer intensity than the outright difficulty we tend to see when it comes with horror games. Even its time-trial approach to re-playable levels and the post-level breakdown of enemies killed and secrets found feels earned as opposed to tacked-on.
