DISAPPOINTING - I feel sorry for this one. It came close to being passable, but dropped the ball too many times to prevent itself from being an embarrassment. How we score:  The Destructoid Reviews...

Cobalt's multiplayer suggests how much more the game could be, where its versatility isn't bogged down by Oxeye's problematic enemy encounters. The new ideas Cobalt does have don't always coalesce as gracefully as they need to, but it's a surprisingly deep, and often frustrating, action platformer. It felt like playing through an old favorite and realizing it wasn't quite what you remembered —€” but kind of liking it anyway.

I love the unexplained mechs, and the endless push and pull between chaos and order. I love that Cobalt often doesn't explain itself. That active reload system is not mentioned in the tutorial, for example, while loot and upgrades and throwable/ridable pets are all systems you have to prod your way through in order to make sense of them. The result is a game that you'll never truly feel you have fully got to grips with, perhaps, but it's also a game that will be able to surprise you time after time.

There's a pretty good game buried somewhere inside Cobalt, obscured by layers of poor balancing and technical glitches. The energetic combat and fun weapons make multiplayer a neat pick-up-and-play experience, but the bungled and buggy story mode just...

Jag är en söt liten robot. Vet inte riktigt vad jag ska tycka om den detaljen, men nu är det som det är. Jag är en söt liten robot med en söt liten pistol, och jag skjuter på andra söta små varelser. Eller jag försöker skjuta dem. De sliter mig i...
