Soda Crisis Review: A Fantastic Side-Scroller With A Vague Story

There is a large variety of enemies, ranging from simple troops to specialized machines that occupy each level. All of Soda Crisis‘ levels are divided into various rooms that either test players’ combat abilities, platforming abilities, or both. While these rooms are challenging, none of them feel unfair. The directional control for aiming can be frustrating at times but there are a ton of ways to approach rooms, some of which don’t require a single enemy to be defeated in order to progress. To top it off, a variety of challenging boss fights await players at the end of each level and these fights, just like the various rooms leading up to them, manage to never feel unfair.

The only notable downside is Soda Crisis‘s story which, aside from the alien invasion, feels unclear. The biggest thing that kept shattering the immersion is the overwhelming presence and importance that soda has in this world. Given the name of the developer, it’s likely part of an overall aesthetic, but it still manages to feel ungrounded in a world that’s already fantastical. There are also some moments of revelation that feel like they should have had more emotional impact but only left the feeling of “who is that?” or “did I miss something?

That said, the story is far from the focus of the game and its strong gameplay and striking visual design more than make up for it. The pounding electronic soundtrack is worth shouting out as well because each song manages to perfectly match the energy of the player at any given moment. There are also a ton of minigames present to shake things up in the post-game, such as a speedrunning mode and a bunch of collectable game cartridges that can be played via the arcade machine in home base. Through its marriage of bullet-hell gunplay and fast-paced platforming of games like Ori and the Will of the WispsSoda Crisis stands out as a phenomenal side-scrolling action-adventure.

Soda Crisis is available now for PC via Steam. Screen Rant was provided with a digital download for the purpose of this review.
