wccftech
Third person shooting, roguelike loop, and enough combat depth to have the two systems overlap without friction
Dozens of artifacts and parasites to give Selene a fighting chance
Excellent implementation of all DualSense features
Each map is randomly generated but filled with handcrafted maps and combat arenas
A good Dreadbound build is my favorite playstyle in all of Returnal
Each complete run lasts up to an hour and a half
Being struck by unseen enemies and losing half your life is a common occurrence
Half the weapon roster either underpowered or utterly useless for long range encounters
Story falls apart and fails to answer Selene's greatest mysteries in the second half, leaving it up to the player to interpret her fate
Getting your corpse scavenged and taking a negative ailment in an otherwise perfect run isn't cool
Many lore pieces relegated to audio logs and alien scripture tucked away across randomly generated stages
Occasional dips below 60 FPS during firefights with high explosion counts
Malignancy effects are rampant in Act Two with nearly 50% of every item drop covered in negative effects

Absolutely stunning
Some of the best audio ever produced in a game of this nature
Excellent world-building if you're willing to dig
A skill-based affair that is super-rewarding when you nail encounters and traversal
The use of the PS5 controller's features is commendable
Disparate in design
Slow and big, with too much rinse-repeat
The random aspect to the game's enemies and impediments and challenges removes any flow or sense of structure
After awhile the stunning art becomes repetitive, which is a real shame
The narrative takes a lot to bite into
