Decider says, “Squid Games takes a fresh idea and spins it into a thrilling drama; we hope it continues to build the tension we saw in the last 20 minutes throughout the season.”
Den of Geek says, “Squid Game doesn’t offer an escape from the horrors of the real world; within its limitations as a fictional drama, it gives us something far rarer: an affirmation that they exist, and that we’re not alone in finding them nightmarish.”
Forbes says, “It’s a strange, violent, disturbing adventure, and if that sounds like something you’d like, I can’t recommend Squid Game enough.”
