Berzerk: Recharged is here!

You can’t fault Atari for dragging some of their older games kicking and screaming into the modern age of gaming. For the most part they’ve done good too, reigniting, reinvigorating and recharging some old classics. The latest is that of Berzerk: Recharged

Available right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S is Berzerk: Recharged. It’s also on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, PC and Atari VCS as the latest from the Sneakybox and Atari teams. 

Otto is back in Berzerk: Recharged

Berzerk: Recharged follows on from Atari’s previous Recharged offerings of Quantum: Recharged, Caverns of Mars: Recharged, Missile Command: Recharged and more. This time around the source material is that of the titular Berzerk, a game that first arrived on the gaming scene way back in 1980. For us, it’s the follow-up, Frenzy, that we remember a little more. 

We’re keen to see how Atari have done the usual glow up with Berzerk: Recharged though. Playing out as a top-down multi0directional shooter, it has you trying to work your way through an endless maze. Running and shooting is the name of the game here, as you take down any foes that may get in your way.

The thing is, that running will come to the fore even more as the deadly Otto pops up. Indestructible, there’s only one thing for it when Otto comes to town – RUN!

Key features

With many a weapon and modifier in place, alongside twenty hand-crafted mazes, Berzerk: Recharged should really have enough about it to place highly in the grand scheme of other Atari Recharged titles. When you consider that Megan McDuffee is back on soundtrack duties, it all gets even more interesting…

  • Challenge Accepted: Survive an endless maze of random rooms that get progressively harder the further you get. As intensity ramps up, the increasing difficulty is reflected in the robots’ changing color schemes.
  • A-Maze-ing Levels to Tackle: Shoot through 20 hand-crafted mazes that deliver unique gameplay challenges, each with different layouts to test your mettle.
  • Pumped Power-Ups: Pick up weapon modifiers, including a spread-shot, big shot, or a series-staple railgun. There are also player modifiers for speeding up, shield, and placeable mines to use against your rude and relentless enemies! 
  • Co-Op and Leaderboards: Like previous Recharged iterations, players can recruit a trusty player two to double the firepower and aid in the onslaught if things get too dicey. Then, track your progress on the public leaderboard!

Buy now!

Berzerk: Recharged is priced at £7.99 from the Xbox Store. It’s playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, fully optimised for new consoles. 

You’ll also find the game on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Atari VCS and PC. 

Our full review of Berzerk: Recharged on Xbox is incoming. 

Berzerk: Recharged on Xbox Game Description

Chicken, fight like a robot! Evil Otto and his deadly robots are back in this reimagining of the 1980 arcade classic Berzerk. Berzerk: Recharged challenges you to fight your way through a deadly maze filled with waves of menacing, vocal robots. Deft twin-stick control and power-ups are the only way to survive, as you shoot your way through room after room in this never-ending dystopian maze. And don’t forget, Evil Otto may have a smile on his face, but he is deadly and invincible.

As with all Recharged games, you can chase a high score in arcade mode, or take on one of the many hand-crafted challenges to test your shooting and dodging skills. If things get too hard, you can always grab a friend to double your firepower in local-co-op.

Megan McDuffee’s original soundtrack of sci-fi synths captures the ambiance of a harrowing space station shootout – and a very cool 80s arcade.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
