“Pressure is meant to entertain, and believe us when we say it does. It's like an old 2D shooter evolved, with fun gameplay and an addictive multiplayer.”
Vandal Online

“Pressure is fun. That’s why we get back to it from time to time. It’s not designed to keep you going for hours, it’s more suitable for a quick round during your lunch break.”
GamingXP

“Pressure has become a small but entertaining game, that brings you back to the good old years that you spent in the arcade halls. The gameplay is simple and fast-paced, and thanks to the steampunk graphics it's also enjoyable to watch.”

Nice little game for short gaming sessions every now and then. Reminds me of the old days, pure arcade fun. Good controls and a solid gameplay with great boss fights. Perfect game if you want to blow off some steam.

Pleasantly surprised by this one. The game is very polished. Well worth a run through

Pros:
Nice graphics that in the later levels can be quite immersive.
Great sounds effects
High Fun Level
Not frustrating to play like some of these games can be.
Cut scenes
Nice Car Mods.

Cons:
Don't think I'll replay it. Don't expect to get a timeless amount of game play out of this and still enjoy it.
In some levels the camera angle changes quite rapidly that can be annoying and disorientating.

The graphics look nice, but the gameplay isn't very well designed. Only being able to shoot forwards is a major problem in this type of game where you have a car moving along with enemies coming up behind it all the time. Overall, the game is boring and not worth my time.

"Mostly Positive" reviews my @ss. This game ♥♥♥♥ing blows. It is just not fun. First off, you hold down right trigger to accelerate but you also have to hold down A the entire time to fire. That would be fine, but you have to hold down A with the middle of your thumb because you have to, get this, press the X button every few seconds the entire race to get a boost, otherwise you will never make it to any checkpoints. Holding down both right trigger and A and pressing X over and over and over and over and over again the whole time kills this game dead. That and the fact that you need pressure, or gas, to keep going and you get it from killing enemies. Problem is that the slightly larger enemies take way too many hits to kill so they stay on screen and shoot you for way too long. You get flooded with dozens of enemies and they have pin-point auto-aim accuracy and never stop firing. They also barely give off any pressure (gas) at all so if you don't die before a checkpoint, you run out of gas. I couldn't beat the 4th race so I said fk this. Sure with practice I could beat it, but the problem is that the game is just not fun and has poor gameplay like I described. The only good thing about it is the graphics. The music is the most stock generic awful up-tempo elevator music that you could imagine. It is the stuff of nightmares.

This game is a perfect example of the abuse of the steam rating system by complete ret@rds who don't know what a good game is but sure know how to waste their time eating dog ♥♥♥♥ like this.

Nice little game for short gaming sessions now and then. It's plain and simple fun and great if you want to blow off some steam. I really like the buggy upgrade system and co-op is a lot of fun. Give it a try :)
