    While answering a routine call on a patrol, Dolphin, Star, and Trouble -the most popular officers of the super-powered law enforcement agency, Stronghold- find themselves in a sequence of events that will alter the fate of the entire city.

    Mayhem Brawler is an urban fantasy themed beat 'em up that brings back the 90s arcade vibe to present day. With comic book style art and kick-ass soundtracks, it offers a unique experience that you can tackle solo or as co-op with friends while defining the next step in the story with your choices.

    A fun and addictive beat 'em up, that aptly combines the simple gameplay of the classic titles of the genre with a modern approach. Shame about the lack of on-line co-op.

    There's plenty to like about Mayhem Brawler. The setting is unique among games in the genre, and the mechanics work well with the combat system thanks to its fluidity and diversity. The main campaign may be short and the unlockables list consists of one mode, but the three different endings and multiple campaign branches mean that there's more content to this game than originally believed. You'll have to rely on local friends for this one, but there's an absolutely good time to be had.

    It’s obvious that Mayhem Brawler’s developers love the genre and truly understand what makes it fun. Their game resembles Streets of Rage 4 a bit too much for my taste and sadly fails to reach its level of awesomeness, but it’s one of those beat ‘em ups that let you really feel the old school vibe – and that’s awesome.

    In a time where rival games are doing it better, it was always going to be difficult to rival Streets of Rage 4 without doing something exceptional. Mayhem Brawler is not that, but I am not sure it was ever trying to be. Instead, I think the developers wanted to give fans more decent beat ’em up action, which the developers have successfully done.

    This is far from a bad game, but it’s too generic to stick out for its presentation and too annoying to let its gameplay do the talking. If you just want a short beat ’em up to play with a friend, then there’s some amusement to be had here. But this is far from the best beat ’em up you can buy on PC.

Mayhem Brawler is the game that puts a lot of freshness for the genre, with branching paths, different ending,s and a whole new urban-fantasy setting that includes a ton of rogues gallery. Especially after the Air Supremacy update, with fun new mechanics, crazy combos, and new game modes, the devs obviously care about the game they've created and its fanbase. A game that lovers of the genre should NOT miss! Expand

    The demo was very promising yet the final version hasn't addressed any of the issues many people have pointed out:
    a) exceptionally slow
    The demo was very promising yet the final version hasn't addressed any of the issues many people have pointed out:
    a) exceptionally slow gameplay
    b) clunky game mechanics
    c) lacking animations
    It had a lot going for it but by release it was obvious that the developers just weren't experienced enough to make a proper balance between dymanics and fun.

    A streets of rage clone but no where near as good as that classic. Bad characters and poor graphics make this one for the bargain bin. At theA streets of rage clone but no where near as good as that classic. Bad characters and poor graphics make this one for the bargain bin. At the very least, they could have improved on the animations but instead it looks like its running at 30 fps even on a top end gaming rig. Give this one a pass or simply wait till it goes on sale.
