Hamsterdam is a delightful homage to Golden Era kung-fu movies, but if the martial artists were all small mammals. It might get repetitive quite quickly, but if you're looking for something you can play in short sprints or something fun for your kids, Hamsterdam is a genuine treat.

As the game never really switches up its formula, it's not long before fatigue sets in.

There's a lot of potential in the game's premise and presentation that could well be capitalised on for any future games, but here it feels like a bit of a wasted opportunity. Add to this the lengthy load times and technical issues, and this is game you'd be best off avoiding.

Hamsterdam aims to give the players a sweet, pleasant experience, and you can feel that by its wonderful character design and great control mechanism and combat system. But in the end, the very repetitive gameplay really hurts the whole experience. That said, If you can deal with this issue or if you are willing to just ignore it, you'll probably have some fun saving the city with Pimm.
