Promising some “hot” multiplayer shooting action, to its credit Burn doesn’t lack in personality. With a handful of characters to choose from (quite a few requiring an unlock) that differ not just in their look but also weapon and special it also manages to do a better job of differentiating characters than most that just go with aesthetics. Play is in relatively small and simple arenas, though they do have some variety and special attributes in some cases to make things interesting. Where it comes to control I was really hoping for a twin-stick setup to make aiming independent of movement but unfortunately (probably to make single joycon play viable) it’s single stick, which has that tendency to make the action a bit janky at times as you’re trying to evade and shoot somehow at the same time. As this type of game goes I’d say it’s at least above average but while you can go it solo against bots this is simply a multiplayer game through and through, and its longevity is dependent on what you and your friends (or, if you’re lucky and able to scare up some random competition on online) may be looking for.
