I really love playing this game, so far I only played campaign.
But that is enough for me to say, if you love puzzle games, buy this game.
It's puzzles are not that hard, but some are pretty difficult imo.
The game is very straight forward.

Definitely a must-buy for puzzle lovers and players who liked VVVVV!
8/10

Nice design and gameplay; wished the story was a little bit more dense here - it feels most of the time more like arcade/puzzling in style. But nevertheless I can recommend playing it ;-)

Awesome lil adventure game with a simple story

-Fun
-Great bosses
-Nice puzzles
-Lantern run and Shadow hunters solo or co op and those mods are amazing and rly fun
-The story might be 2 simple for you/not deep enough but I enjoyed it and never felt a game like this needs a deeper story or anything

Amazing game! I am all about Metroidvania, and this game fits that to a T, IN SPAAAAAACE! Or, at least in a corrupted stellar body full of twists, turns, enemies, puzzles, items, collectibles and a detailed map! I had this first for 360, and when I saw it pop up here three years, why, I just had to have it! And let me tell you; its playability has not diminished in the least. Its dual-stick support works wonderfully with my Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, and production values are incredibly high for a game of this type. The challenges herein are just the right mix of challenging, puzzling and rewarding.

Now, I have not tried the local co-op modes, as I have had no one to play them with locally; but if I do have the opportunity in the future, I'll take it. Other than that, enjoy ripping your way through the Shadow Planet in your very own, increasingly impressive little UFO! :)
