In his review of Returnal for techgameworld.com our Daniele wrote:

Despite initial mistrust, Returnal has kidnapped us. Each game element is devoted to a large variety of weapons, enemies and environments that manages to balance a similar gameplay throughout the game. Increasingly stronger bosses, increasingly powerful weapons and gadgets that will make you gain new skills, manage to keep the players’ interest high“.
