A friend and I bought this after seeing it's basically a miniature PSO and the rather positive reviews. Before you continue reading, I have to say that I understand that this probably wasn't made by a huge game studio and it's something I feel had a ton of potential to stand out.

Gotta say, it's not actually as fun as people in the reviews say.
I mean, I wouldn't say it's bad but just within the first 2 hours of playing with a friend it's pretty clear it's really repetitive. Like, really repetitive. I wanted to make sure I could get the refund, because while it was charm and appeal for the time I played, it wasn't enough to keep my friend and I coming back.

The car that's driveable is probably the most fun part (my favourite, anyways) and it isn't even included on a lot of levels. I felt that more direct-coop things like that would have made the game a lot more exciting. Vehicles, teamwork-based objectives, riveting and dynamic levels- stuff like that. The customization was nice but I felt held back because literally everything costs a certain amount of ingame money that actually takes a while to collect. There's no way to get loot, ever. You just grind money and spend it all, and not to mention those materials you gotta collect for stuff too. Unlike a game like Borderlands or even PSO (which this game seems the most similar to), there's no satisfaction of ever getting a rare item or just interesting equipment.

The gameplay as a whole works pretty fine but a part of me says that the 'air' energy/stamina system is being used for too many things, having to recharge a bit too frequently. I want to use the gun camera for the melee attacks as well but there's no way to change that, and it feels really clunky the that way it is. All of the combat feels really floaty and doesn't have that satisfying feeling when you defeat enemies, it's like hitting balloons. Really tough balloons.

There's very little enemy variety, most of them making up of recolours and remodels of enemies that basically do the same thing. The level design is also pretty poor in certain levels while other ones are more appealing in both visuals and gameplay, but overall it feels somewhat cheap, which was disappointing because there's a lot of potential. Since I didn't want to play over the two hours we had for the refund, I haven't seen the later levels so I did some research and it seems even later on you're doing basically the same thing.

The game's pretty hard to look at sometimes with all the bloom on, and drop shadows only appear when you limit the framerate to 30 from 60 (at least if I recall properly, anyways- it was a particular video setting I'd rather not turn down). Without the shadows, it really is hard to look at the game with their harshly stretched textures and ultra-vibrant colours.

The sound effects aren't really all that varied and you'll hear the same stuff a lot. You won't really hear any music in game like the trailer's, either. It felt really bland playing for extended periods of time, and I seriously don't want to hear any more of that rolling sound.

To summarize and some other stuff:
-Yes, it's cute. Yes, it has charm.
-The assortment of costumes is nice, but comes at a price of more grinding.
-It suffers terribly from repetitiveness and lack of variety, in almost all departments- from monsters, level design, game modes, sound effects, equipment.
-There's an overall cheap feel to it all and a lot of it feels same-y.
-Serious grinding of the same missions involved for money and materials.
-Small community.
-Visuals can be hard to bear with for long periods.
-Sound design is lacking.
-Game feels floaty, slow, almost.

One of the cutest games I have ever come across. The quests are enjoyable and it easily kills time. Plus the entire community just seems super friendly towards new members. However, there is a little mishap regarding the quest board, which crashes my game sometimes. If they fix that, everything would be awesome possum c:

I'd like to say the game is really not bad if you want to be relaxed from those competitive games.
It could be online play or offline play. And people here are friendly. I still remember when I search for this game, the article wrote, "This is the first game I never see people say F-words."
Also it has no exp stuffs make you want to level up or get higher stuffs. Nope, it won't makes you want to play the game like as working.

Therefore, it still has many bugs can be fixed. Such as crash, sometimes get unknown errors and when I touch the board and then game crashed.
It's a little hard to control even if I edit all stuffs as personal settings. And even if I'm in 60FPS, still feel not enough, it could be higher I think?(Sorry I don't know such stuffs but just feel like "lag" while playing.)
The speed of walking/running really slow even if I use roll way to forward. I think the speed could be changed to be higher!
Some textures look weird. I don't know how to explain. Such as if I go to a place, then there will have some stuffs include players get hided. And it makes me think nobody or nothing there.
And the distance of shooting seems needs improvement. I'm not sure if it is the game setting which has already decided earlier. Sometimes when I can see the monsters in my screen, after shooting but they didn't get damage and I have to go near the monsters to shoot them.
Network issues, it has no problem on playing with my friends. But sometimes don't know why, and it just get someone or I disconnected from the room suddenly. But you know we don't have problem on playing, such as high delaying or stuck.
It may not happen too many times, but it could be improved.
Language, I hope we could have Traditional Chinese in the game. Even if we have Simplified Chinese already. But I personal can't accept some difference of those words. I can understand the meaning, but I still prefer our own words to explain that. I don't mind to offer my ability to help this if develop team willing to make Traditional Chinese then.

Anyway, this is a nice game. It can be better a lot. And you should play it if you're really want to be relaxed from something and enjoy coop stuffs with your friends. This will be one of best choice to play this.

Fun game and cute with lots of character customization options. I recommend controller but my friend says mouse and keyboard works fine too. Only thing for me is I'll start randomly slowing down or speeding up while everything around me stays constant.

It's a fun game. Not the best game I've ever played, but it's entertaining and has an EarthBound/MOTHER-like charm to it, and the screenshots don't quite do it justice- its chibi style looked cheap at first glance, but I liked it after a short time in-game. Random end-of-mission drops (although with listed odds, which is nice) seems a bit of a turn-off, but it's not a huge issue. As it's so new, I haven't gotten a chance to try it out with other players yet, but I'm eager for the chance to. So if you're all tired out of seriousness like Call of Duty or Counter-Strike, why not give a go at something... cuter?

You really can't go wrong with something titled "Global Online Chibi Combat Offensive".

GOCCO OF WAR is a pretty 'grindy' third-person shooter. Normally, something being described as 'grindy' wouldn't sound all that great, but here it works pretty well. In a similar fashion to a certain Japanese game where you hunt monsters, much of your time on GOCCO will be spent playing then replaying the numerous quests to get that ONE LAST MATERIAL or THOSE FEW MORE COINS you need to build/buy an outfit part, weapon or other material. There's enough action to keep it from getting stale though, even when you're replaying Quest #20 for the fifteenth time to try and find that frickin' Dragon Blood.

Quests can be played either by yourself on Offline mode, which typically grants you an AI teammate to follow and help you out, or Online with up to 4 players. Thankfully, material drops are 'instanced' for each player, so you don't have to worry about that guy with the max level weapon charging through everything and taking all the treasure.

An assortment of clothes and costumes are available to customise your character with. Military uniforms, t-shirts and shorts, alien outfits, pretty much anything. If you decide that you don't like the look of your character or just want a new hairstyle, you can also edit everything about your appearance at any time when in a lobby except for gender, but with 16 character slots that really shouldn't be an issue at all.

The weapons are fun to use, looking as bright as the rest of the game and having secondary uses such as charged shots or alternate attack functions. Each of the weapons can be upgraded to deal more damage, or evolved into a new form to add status effects (fire, lightning, poison, etc.) or just beef up the damage even more.

Overall, GOCCO OF WAR is a nice way to kill some time after enduring some of the other offerings Steam has available. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm trying to save up a few hundred thousand more for that shiny new gun...

In my opinion, it is one of the best co-op games of the recent period. Most importantly, the co-op experience is not limited: you and your co-player(s) participate equally in missions and both get all the awards/benefits. The lobby system is also nice in that you can team up with random people in a griefless and completely optional manner.

The game is beginner/casual player friendly, but the difficulty level can be adjusted to be more challenging, There is also lots to do: shoot up monsters, complete mission objectives, collect and upgrade weapons and gather cute outfits. So far, there are 20 maps, but there is promise of more.

Lastly, the visuals are completely adorable and you can customize your character at any time with a multitude of appearance/clothing options available. I would definitely recommend trying this cute little game out and giving it a chance to grow into something more, perhaps. It is awesome when your co-op gaming is not bound by arbitrary limits.

GOCCO OF WAR is a very kawaii shooter game in chibi style. In this game you can play in single player mod or multiplayer mod and choose quest difficult (easy/normal/hard). But in many times will be good ask others players for help because the quests can be hard if played alone, and play with others is more fun.

- Chibis
- Can customize their apparence
- Third person view
- Community is friendly

- For now, has few quests (only 20 and you clear the game + 2 special mission)
- Random crashes
- Devs can promote more events
- After completed all quests, the only thing that can do is complete achievements

If you wanna buy the theme song, i´ll warn that has only ONE music in dlc. But the theme song is very good

Welcome to the Gocco Studio Japan, an incredible theme park where you can be part of an imaginary war and fight against enemies created by a hyper-holographic simulator. All you have to do is to pick up one of several ecological weapons available to you which are powered by air and jump into battle on your own or with friends via the online mode.

GOCCO OF WAR is an action/co-op type of game. First, you have to create your Chibi (Japanese slang to describe a person who is vertically challenged) which is really fun especially when you have a fair few options to choose from. Then you have to decide if you want to play online or offline. Either way, you will end up in a lobby. There you will have Chibis you can talk to and find a little bit more of what to do. Also, you will have 3 stands and a billboard.

To do a quest, just go to the quest stand. There you will be able to activate one. There are 21 quests available to you in the game but you have beat the quest to get access to the next one. During the quest, you will be able to pick up items and gold. At the craft stand, you can enhance or create other weapons. If you accumulate enough gold during your quest, head straight up to the shop stand where you can purchase more powerful weapons. The billboard is a tool for the online mode where you can join a party of 4 on a quest.

The combat system is very easy to master and the levels are well designed. This is a really cute, fun game to play by yourself or with your friends. For the control side of the equation, I personally prefer to play with the mouse and keyboard. Nothing wrong with the gamepad by the way but I just think using the mouse and keyboard is better.
Up to 30 different foes to fight against, some will throw projectiles and some will run towards you from left, right and centre.


- Cute graphics
- Fun and easy gameplay
- Great Chibi customization
- Good range of enemies
- Offline and Online mode
- Achievements and Trading cards


- Could have been a little more challenging

A truly enjoyable game to play, it is cute, it is fun and it has a lot of chibis! I like it a lot!

A cute anime chibi style game that I figure encourage interaction with players from all around. It allows an "Online" or "Offline" choice for you to play within, playing offline would occasionally allow AI bots to help you during missions while online doesn't due to the fact you can ask people to help you. There are around 20 story quests and 2EX quests, giving it 22 quests in total. Each quest has 3 difficulties--Easy, Medium, and Hard. The game has a good amount of customization for your character and a large range of costumes you can craft. The game has both melee and range weapons, however range weapons would be used most of the time in my opinion. The community is extremely friendly, one of the best I seen, you basically can ask anyone inside the community and they'll help you on quests and such.
The game isn't fully done, I have read some of the developers comments and shown that the game will continue to expand with everything. So overall, i'm really looking forward to the future of this game, hoping the community and game will grow much larger.

I was gifted this game by my girlfriend earlier today and the first impressions are very positive. Was really easy to set up a lobby and the keys are all rebindable, which some people may appreciate since the initial binds are a bit wonky.

The game itself looks quite good, not a graphical masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination but it has it's charm for sure. The gameplay itself is a quite basic 3rd person shooter but it absolutely works and the varied missions are a rather nice touch as well. I don't know how many missions there are in total but they do have replayability since there are different difficulty levels that offer a higher drop chance for some of the more rare materials.

Speaking of materials, the crafting system that this game offers is also rather basic but functional. There are a lot of items to discover and craft, which is a big plus. Customization is something that this game offers plenty of!

Summary: Great little game to play with your friends (lobbies offer up to 32 slots for players, only 4 people can go on a mission together though). Easy to learn yet fun to play, will also offer a decent amount of gameplay for it's cost. If you do have a few friends interested in the game and some money to spare then do give it a shot!
