Beyond Co-op Reviews: May 2023

Platformers and kids games make for a varied month of single-player games.

Welcome back to Beyond Co-Op Reviews, our critical look at games that don't feature co-op modes.

This month, we’re looking at a couple of action platformers: one a Roguelike and the other an arcade game. The “Return to Castlevania” DLC adds some Castlevania flavor to Dead Cells, so that’s practically three platformers we’re talking about! Oh, and My Friend Peppa Pig is a colorful game based on a popular kids show.

With so many games to choose from, let us help you find the best non-cooperative games in our Beyond Co-Op Reviews!

Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania (Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and Steam)

“The strange path to reaching the depths of the “Return to Castlevania” DLC can be frustrating, but it encourages players to build up their strength and learn the mechanics and stages better before facing the final boss.”

Cannon Dancer - Osman (Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and Steam)

“One downside compared to Strider is that Kirin fights with kicks rather than a cool sword. The superior range and catchy sound effect of Strider’s Cypher sword are missed.”

My Friend Peppa Pig (Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and Steam)

“You get to create a character who will be Peppa’s new friend. Then you can meet characters from the show.”
