    A debauchery-fueled beat ‘em up with plenty of ways to cripple your enemies, its excessive violence never overshadows the smart and intuitive combat.

    Mother Russia Bleeds is a great homage to the beat'em ups that ruled the arcades in the Eighties. Excessive, vulgar, ultraviolent, it offers a fun yet deep gameplay, improved by an inspired art direction and a good soundtrack. An excessive difficulty towards the end and some technical flaws prevent the game from becoming a masterpiece, but if you love the genre, you can't miss it.

    All-round successful beat’em up. Gameplay mechanics work great both in single and multiplayer. In addition, the style of the game is brought to perfection and the result is a flawless atmosphere.

    It introduces wrinkles that make each level feel fresh. And it weaves complex themes into its gameplay in ways that, although not subtle, are nuanced. Mother Russia Bleeds knows how to upset many expectations of the genre--I just wish it wasn't always trying to shock me.

    Mother Russia Bleeds reaches its entertainment goals. Even though there are some issues in its gameplay that affect the game negatively, we find ourselves with a great beat ‘em up videogame.

    The most flattering description I can offer Mother Russia Bleeds is that of an enjoyably formulaic brawler, but the ferocity of its execution was refined enough to get lodged in my head. I can’t quite work it out: it exists like a ringing in my ears that has no obvious source. Or, rather, it’s a third-gen VHS copy of its influences, a quavery deja vu of a violent brawler both familiar and unsettling.

    Even the co-op, local-only, fails to save the game from tedium. It’s a shame; aesthetically and mechanically there could’ve been something here, but there just weren’t enough ideas put in play to make Mother Russia Bleeds into anything special. Coupled with the often frustrating collision detection and the woefully poor friendly AI, Mother Russia Bleeds ends up as little more than a tedious, forgettable drudge.

It gets tiring fast with the huge amount of enemies coming at you. Having a dedicated button for grabs is needlessly complicating the genre. Expand

    Bought this game legitimaly(or whatever it's written) from a legit 3rd party seller, just for some months later I get an notification fromBought this game legitimaly(or whatever it's written) from a legit 3rd party seller, just for some months later I get an notification from Steam saying something like this: "the developer removed my key from your library because it was an beta key or something". Also on Steam forums some users had the same problem and almost 10 days laters (from the date of this review) not a single response from neither, the developer, publisher or moderator about this issue. And they can't even say "because there's a lot of flood in posts we didn't saw it", because it's in the **** latest posts in 2 subforums, the generic one and the troubleshoot one. What a joke of a developer. Expand
