Post Void Review

Post Void is a new fast-paced first-person shooter from Super Rare Games and YCJY Games that will send you on quite the trip if you choose to dive into its world. Here is what I thought of the PlayStation 4 version after going hands-on with it for this review.

Post Void doesn’t feature a narrative and instead relies on its fast-paced shooting action and randomly generated levels to keep players entertained. You’re only goal in the game is to make it to the end of each level as fast as you can and kill any enemies along the way. Why do you need to finish each level fast? That’s because you have a health vial full of liquid on your hand that gradually depletes and when it runs out you die. The only way to fill it back up is to kill enemies so you want to get through the level and kill as many as you can to stay alive.

The shooting in the game feels snappy so landing my shots was never a problem and if I missed it was on me. There is good enemy variety throughout and I never felt like I was fighting the same ones while playing through the game’s 11 levels. With each level’s layout and placement of enemies being randomly generated you’ll also never be facing the same challenge twice making repeat playthroughs more enjoyable. Completing levels also rewards you with upgrades to make your life easier. These can include things like faster reload times to new weapons like a shotgun. The shotgun is a godsend and much better than using the pistol you start off with so make sure you get it if you have the chance.

It wasn’t just the gameplay that I enjoyed about Post Void but the crazy visual style it is wrapped in too. The hypnotic visuals are a treat but never a hindrance to seeing what is actually going on. I could see some people possibly getting a headache from them though so if you are the type that can have something like that happen due to busy visuals you may want to steer clear of this game.

Post Void is a trippy, fast-paced first-person shooter mixed with roguelike elements that can provide a lot of fun if it grabs you. Beating all eleven levels doesn’t take long though so if you aren’t the type to want to replay a game over and over to get better scores then this one won’t have much to offer you. The price of entry is low though so if you have even a mild interest in checking it out it won’t set you back much and I do think fans of the genre should at least give it a look.
