    It's a bit expensive because it's basically the same as its earlier PS3 version, which also means it's still the highly enjoyable arcade shooter you remember.

    Awesomenauts was an easy recommendation before, and with the addition of new characters and other improvements, Assemble! is a must-have both for those who haven’t experienced the game and veterans who want to play the best possible console version. Anyone who enjoys run and gun shooters or action platformers will enjoy this, and it’s a perfect gateway game to the MOBA genre.
  3. It's still not quite perfect, but Awesomenauts Assemble is certainly a noticeable step up from its PS3 older brother. [May 2014, p75]

    Even though it's still, for a big part, the same game as a few years ago, it's really interesting to see how much the game has improve till now. There are lots of new characters and all kinds of features that make the game really enjoyable.

    It’s without a doubt the best and most complete version of Ronimo Games' excellent eighties homage to date – but it never quite does enough to make it worth a double-dip.

    An interesting 2D moba, full of content and characters even if not as deep as the great masterpieces of the genre.

    If you enjoy some online competitive play, this is a great way to get your fix. If you were already a fan of the Awesomenauts, then it is hard to recommend against this updated version.

    Amazing game! I played the original on the 360 and the improvements are astounding! Best $10 spent. It's a 2D Moba, so the entire gameAmazing game! I played the original on the 360 and the improvements are astounding! Best $10 spent. It's a 2D Moba, so the entire game consists of intense PVP encounters with some PvE mixed in. During the course of a 5-30 minute match (rarely goes over 20 minutes long) you will start from level 1, and build up your character rapidly with a good variety of choices and characters I could play this game for days. Character diversity is fantastic with a lot of uniqueness in their method of travel. It's platforming and each character has a unique movement, attacks, and customization special abilities. It's easily the best Moba I've played and the experience on the console is unparalleled. 10/10. Customizable control scheme, premium skins to display, and so much more to love.

    If you are a fan of 2d action combat, MOBA's, etc. this game is a MUST BUY. Art style and graphics looks superb, performance is great, and promised improvements to come. Buy it this week (3/4/14) for a sale for PS+ members! You won't regret it.

    No servers, constant quitters, same game a few improvements, same exploits, have to rebuy skins at a ridiculous price, OVERALL if you haven'tNo servers, constant quitters, same game a few improvements, same exploits, have to rebuy skins at a ridiculous price, OVERALL if you haven't played it give it a go if you have don't bother.
    If the purchase of skins actually meant a different load out for characters that would be cool.
    It's also great if you are American because their are no servers and the whole game messes up and constantly disconnects people.
    DEFINITELY NOT A 10/10 GAME. Those are fanboys reviewing.
    This entire experience is brought up or let down by your team mates or your opposition. Nothing like getting a team mate who feeds the enemies 10 kills and then quits.
    BUT it can be fun, CAN be get some decent players all with decent all round ping and you COULD have a blast.
    The same old exploits can be used in the game certain melee characters have a 4cm radius or more of melee destruction which isn't possible, the heal bots knockback is non existent until used by the opposing faction and there is another exploit with a player which is absolutely ridiculous.
