BLEED for Nintendo Switch The Definitive Review


Ok so if you take a bullet-hell, shmup (Shoot Em Up), bullet time skin saving, action-platformer AND focusing on stylish acrobatics with no chaser or filler....then you’d have BLEED. This is a game you need to have in your collection......look stop reading, listening, or watching this review........RIGHT NOW!!! And go add this to your collection......Your Welcome.

So you’re probably wondering why I’m telling you to go buy a game i havent even clearly made you understand what it is aren’t you? Well lets start off by covering the main character and some of the plot. You are Wryn, a girl who has huge aspirations and an even larger arsenal of weapons to become the “Greatest Hero of All Time” and have that title for herself, basically she wants to become the ultimate video game hero and in order for her to do that she needs to take out a few bosses to achieve that.....annnnnd that’s all the plot I’m going to give you...well that’s all that there really is to the plot as its mainly about you using every skill and weapon in your inventory to clear seven levels of enemies and obstacles in a no holds barred seat of your pants breakneck pace adventure.

Sound fun yet? Well it is but let me tell you this...you will die and you will die a lot so as a heads up don’t use the dpad of the Switch and instead use the Left Stick for all your maneuvers as you will need the pinpoint accuracy of the Left Stick in order to be successful in this game.

One thing I felt for the entire time that I played this game was NEVER a sense of calm as this game throws everything it’s got at you and at times it got so chaotic that I forgot that I had the ability to use bullet time (Slowdown time in case some of you don’t know) just to survive an onslaught of projectiles being thrown at me. Bullet time is activated by pressing ZL, Jumping and rocket jumping/dashing is done with ZR, weapon switching with L & R, and 8-way shooting is done with the Right Stick with special attack used when pressing down on the Right Stick. Pretty simple controls overall yet in the heat of battle you’’ more than likely forget what does what as you’ll just be trying to survive everything thrown at you.
