My Friend Pedro is all about slow motion, bullet hell, skateboarding, bike chases and bananas. It’s the kind of games that strips almost everything away and reminds us of what the joy of playing games is all about. You play as an unnamed character, who has been kidnapped. A banana – Pedro – then appears and guides you and along the way asks you to kill everything. Trust me, you owe it to yourself to see this fantastic side-scroller. It looks great, the sund and level design are well done, and it’s absolutely stylish.
Can get overwhelming
Score – 9/10
My Friend Pedro is a violent ballet about friendship, imagination, and one man’s struggle to obliterate anyone in his path at the behest of a sentient banana. The strategic use of split aiming, slow motion, and the ol’ stylish window breach create one sensational action sequence after another in an explosive battle through the violent underworld.
