Furi was released for free as one of the PS Plus games for July 2016. This consecutive boss battle action packed game offers some rare form of combat. It focuses on the ability to combine reflexes, quick wit, and attentive surveying of your opponent’s patterns.
This game is stylish. Its soundtrack, its visuals, its cryptic themes. It’s a unique breed of game for certain. You can divide your time between melee attacks and projectiles as you try to break the form of your enemies. The game is clearly intended to be challenging, but not too brutal. It’s fair, and that’s super important.
One thing you’ll notice while playing is that once you get an idea of game flow, you really are in control of the game. The pacing of the battle may seem like it’s determined by the boss, but it’s really your call. If you dodge a lot and stick to projectiles, you’ll probably want to bait the enemy more than pursuing.
If you’re like me, you probably want to stay up close and personal. I can’t stay away, I need my melee attacks.
PS Plus users, if you haven’t tried Furi yet, you really need to get your hands on it. It’s free this month, and it’s a really cool game.
