Cuphead gehört zu den größten Xbox exklusiven Spiele in diesem Jahr. Ob es sich auch in der Internationalen Presse durchsetzen kann erfahrt Ihr hier.
Cuphead is a great looking game that exploits basic jump and shoot mechanics and hitboxes. Just like classic Mega Man games. Every mistake you make is technically your own fault for not being at the right place, or for not shooting the right target. Cuphead is punishing like that, and that is what makes it so difficult and challenging as a game. It is also where it gets its charm, well with that and the carefully crafted 1930s layered hand-drawn design. Remember, no matter how hard, never give up!
destructoid 95%It's a bit unfair to compare Cuphead to almost any other of the brutally tough platformers I've grown to love recently, as it lacks the filler. It gets straight to the good stuff and gives us an almost 'greatest hits' of boss fights. And if they don't get better and more rewarding as they go, I'll go eat. So while you've still got to be a masochist at heart to get through the 'true' Cuphead, people of all ages and backgrounds would be able to sit in front of the television and appreciate Cuphead for its sense of style and its ability to evoke that childlike wonder that was, until now, dormant in most of us.
GamesRadar 100%Cuphead's incredible style belies its magical complexity. It's so much more than a hard-as-hell shoot-'em-up with artistic flair. It's cerebral in a way that these kind of games rarely are. Cuphead's commitment to forcing the player to understand is commendable. Those who don't have the patience to learn won't get far. That's the kind of stand-your-ground moxie that makes this a hallmark of game design. My praise runneth over.
Polygon 85%Yes, Cuphead was worth the wait. Too often, I find myself thinking "Thank God I never have to do that again" after wrapping up a difficult game - but with Cuphead, I'm mighty excited to further my eight-to-nine-hour Regular run and trounce those bosses in an Expert encore. If you're partial to a tough-but-fair challenge, and you have even the slightest appreciation for the rich history of animated cartoons, you'll be overjoyed by the wonderfully artistic adventure that is Cuphead. Maybe you'll even get a blistered thumb or two to remember it by.
Gamespot 80%Cuphead’s deal with the devil eventually leads to hell, and so perhaps it’s fitting the conclusion should be so torturous. Though, honestly, even the residual headache has been soothed by the sweet, sweet salve of victory. When I think of my time with Cuphead, instead of frustration I’ll remember the dozens of tiny breakthroughs, when the impossible became possible, and a game that built an identity around difficulty helped me to feel, however briefly, undefeatable.
Shacknews 80%Cuphead has been a longtime coming, and it's great to see that it lives up to its initial promises. It's beautiful to look at, and with a pitch-perfect soundtrack, it flawlessly captures the era its developers so clearly revere. It's also an intense action game that pulls no punches. It could benefit from a few tweaks, and two-player co-op doesn't feel like the valuable addition you might imagine, but Cuphead remains a rare, unique game that truly stands out.
But the best part about Cuphead is that the challenge feels attainable. It's the right kind of frustration, the kind that makes a person feel like they can prevail if they just try one more time. It's easy for this type of game to feel cheap, but it never feels impossible. It's a gorgeous piece of work and a cup that feels better on repeated sips.
Stivivor 80%Overall, Cuphead is an absolutely fantastic adventure because it combines tight mechanics with stunning visuals. There’s nothing like it on any platform and if you love challenging titles which require practice, then this is the game for you. However, not everyone will enjoy it because of the steep difficulty. Everything about the title—from the platforming to the boss battles—is a challenge which may frustrate many. As alluded to earlier, if you’re willing to put in the time and effort, there’s just nothing that’s more rewarding. Despite all that, the real star of the show here are the visuals because the 1930s animation elevates this game from a standard run-and-gun platformer to an absolutely mesmerizing experience.
SpazioGames: 85%In the end, Cuphead proves to be everything I wanted it to be — challenging, stylised and fun. It’s a tough, tough game — but unlike Dark Souls, my failures in Cuphead made me want to keep playing. Bring it on.
Windows Central 90%Cuphead is a hardcore game with a beautiful art design that recalls the classic cartoons of the '30s. Based on splendid boss fights and with some "run and gun" levels, MDHR Studios' game is challenging and satisfying.
TrueAchivments 80%Cuphead is an instant classic that will build a solid fanbase across Xbox One and Windows PCs, and hopefully, spawn bigger and bolder sequels in the years to come. Amazing job, Studio MDHR.
Area Jugones 100%Cuphead is likely to reveal its deliberate frustrations too late for some people. It's hard not to become infatuated with the game's visuals, leaving uninformed buyers lured in by those blatant strengths to discover only then that it revels in its own relentlessness. This, in turn, could leave some wanting a refund and needing a new controller or two. However, for those that go into it with a co-op partner and with the knowledge that its design is as unforgiving as it is beautiful, it will be a unique and rewarding game. Always unabating but never unfair, Cuphead is tough to overcome but even tougher to put down.
....Cuphead is a true piece of art of the modern day videogame. The game has lived up to the expectations and it is full with detail and quality in every aspect. From its soundtrack to its wonderful design, Studio MDHR has achieved the glory with this masterpiece
