I played the hell out of this game. I cleared the main game and the free expansion that was released; both to 100%. In total, this took me a bit over 150 hours -- around 100 for the main game.

This game is extremely difficult and very fun. The learning curve for this game is also relatively steep. Learning the mechanics is part of the fun, but mastering them is necessary for successful runs. I typically only recommend this game to people who love the roguelite genre and/or difficult games (e.g., similar to Dark Souls, Binding of Isaac, Rogue Legacy, etc...)

If what I've said so far didn't scare you, then you'll love to hear that the replayability of this game is through the roof. Every run will unlock more items and spells that have the chance to be acquired on subsequent runs. The farther into the game you make it, the better types of items unlock, making other runs easier if you know what to look for.

There is also a ton of characters and variants to unlock (each with different starting stats or spells). Finding the right combo of characters to both optimize your chances and fit your playstyle is its own reward.

In my opinion, this game was an outright steal at $20 (full price). At $10, it shouldn't even be a question unless you know you'd become frustrated quickly.

After hearing the mixed reaction to this have, I went physical. Hard to beat $10 for a physical game. The gameplay looks unique, so I wanted to try it. Waiting until Christmas to play it

Don't forget too, this game had a massive free update with a ton of content. I was worried playing based on reviews initially, watch some youtube videos of how to play. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes more like a rhythm game.

Any fun for a 10 year old boy? He loves games like Splatoon and Minecraft but plays Super Smash Brothers, Skylanders, and Mario Maker also.

Can anyone who has this recommend of this any good? Reviewers seem to give it a low score but it doesn't seem to be terrible. Looks good for short sessions on public transit and such.

Probably not, it's a steep learning curve and more of a "try to make it as far as you can" each time, losing your progress each time. Rogue type game.

That said, it's not a bad game at all, you just need to learn it, and expect to die a lot.

It does deserve some of the hate, because "losing" can be out of your control, which is slightly unfair, but it's not a terrible game and I had fun with it for a while. It's worth $10.

I think you just described the vast majority of the NES/Genesis/SNES catalogs played (& enjoyed) by many a 10 year old kid back in the day. Although I do agree with your main point that kids used to modern, much more forgiving games might get turned off to that style.

For a 10 year old it might be a little too difficult. I'd put that $10 towards something else. If you're looking for something more suitable for his age I might suggest Party Planet. It's a compilation of 30 party-style mini games. It was just released last week and is apparently a GameStop exclusive. I feel like this will be one of those rare titles that won't get another shipment/printing.
Here's a video review I found on YouTube: https://youtu.be/T5KzfSpGJrU

Happy Holidays! hug

Every time I add it to cart via Gamestop, it always clears from cart upon checkout. Says "shopping cart is empty."

Got this game based on what I saw but when it came to play..... I had zero idea what to do. Felt the controllers was confusing. I really tried to get it but there is a huge learning curve and as more Switch games were coming out.... I lost interest and sold it before it devalued more.
