With so many driving games available it is often hard to differentiate each and make one stand out from the crowded market.

Intense boss fights, limited health and one hell of a difficulty curve combined with a 1930’s art style makes Cuphead one of the best games of 2017 which you can simultaneously hate at the exact same time.
