    It's not easy to still find ways to innovate in the open-world space, but Voltion has managed to stay on the pulse of the genre well enough over the past few years. Agents of Mayhem is another strong entry in the developer's fan-favorite library, and has just as many memorable characters and moments as the best Saints Row titles. There are times where it feels like a bit of a grind, but even those elements are outmatched by Agents' charm. Saving the world has never been this vulgar or felt this good, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

    Agents of Mayhem is cheesy, rarely funny, and generally ridiculous, but I was eager to play for long periods of time. The action is frenetic and fun, with room for strategy using all the characters’ assorted abilities. Even if Seoul ends up being a bland backdrop, I enjoyed being in the world and causing explosions in at every opportunity.

    Agents of Mayhem is an interesting experiment, but with short legs. While on one hand we have twelve agents all different and fun to use in fast-paced and dynamic gameplay mechanics, on the other hand we have a gameplay experience ruined mostly for the repetition of missions background and the copious presence of bugs and glitches ready to make you start a great run over again.

    Agents of Mayhem is an over-the-top hero shooter with lots of agents to choose from. The game pays an homage to old cartoon series with weird enemies, cool cut-scenes and a lot of action. Sadly the game suffers from the common flaws of the open world genre.

    There’s a lot of potential scattered around Agents of Mayhem but not enough of it is realized. The shooting and abilities are fun, the characters are interesting and could develop followings individually, but everything is hindered by a half-baked open world. No matter how fun the shooting is, the in-between moments are consistently a chore. If this was intended to spring a new series of games to life, the initial effort spits and sputters on the launch pad.

    Mayhem's slick squad combat is wasted on repetitive mission design and a soulless open world. [Oct 2017, p.76]

    Personality can only take a broken and repetitive game so far. The attitude behind Agents of Mayhem has potential, at least if it's executed properly. But there's little to Agents of Mayhem beyond its foul-mouthed and bombastic attitude, which push the game into grating and obnoxious territory. Throw in the poor mission design and bugs, and you've got a game with loads of mayhem, but not much else.

The characters are awesome and diverse, the city is small but dense, the dialogue is probably the best part of the game. If you were a fan of Sunset Overdrive this game is for you, if not then it isn't for you. That doesn't make it bad like so many people are saying.
    I would probably give it closer to a 7 but since people review things as either GARBAGE is PERFECT I have to give a 10 to help even out the score

I'm giving it a 10 because I find the game to be absolutely the most enjoyable single player shooter that I can remember this year that has comedy and nice cut scenes. anyone giving this game less than a 6 is just a bad reviewer. Even if you don't like the game or shooting games, there is no reason this can possibly be worse than a 6 considering u have a full story mode, tons of funny characters and great graphics. Expand

    My base ruler for games is simple. Did it entertain me? The answer, Yes.

    It did it quite well actually, its a fun game, lots of characters
    My base ruler for games is simple. Did it entertain me? The answer, Yes.

    It did it quite well actually, its a fun game, lots of characters to choose from and a lot of ways to cause the mayhem the game promises. All in all i think it does it's job pretty well. The missions weren't too bad either, though they got slightly repetitive after awhile. Which is pretty much my only gripe, but each character is unique along with their own skill trees and passives, so it won't be too difficult to find one that suits your play style. But here are the big parts that i'll talk about

    Gameplay: It's fast, and pretty challenging at times. Along with all the agents at your disposal it presents it's own pretty unique features and is fairly varied in how it'll play. But there won't be a dull moment. All in all, pretty chaotic.

    World: It's big, and your characters are pretty mobile, so it's fun to explore. Also pretty. so it gets a thumbs up

    Story: Meh.

    Missions: Their pretty fun but they get kinda repetitive, so also kinda meh.

    Conclusion: I'm bad at making reviews, but this game is fun. So if what you're looking for is a fun shooter, you'll find it here.

    Why are people boycotting this game? Classic example of why ratings without written reviews should have less weight towards the final score ofWhy are people boycotting this game? Classic example of why ratings without written reviews should have less weight towards the final score of the product. I'm a few hours into the game now, and I'm having a lot of fun with Agents of Mayhem. It's by no means a flawless game, and I've already run into 1 or two glitches that were mildly frustrating, but the current user score just doesn't seem fair at all. I'll add to this review, once I've completed the game. Expand

Its kinda like GTA with modern MOBA-Elements. You start with three agents who play completely different. You unlock about 10 more through missions. Every character has a great voice acting a a variety of upgradable skins. Some of the characters are really well designed. And the humour is great.

    The world has the perfect size, not to big and not to small, lots of collectibles, and beautiful.

    Mission variety is a little dull. You kill people, destroy things or save/protect things/people. But its a one-of-a-kind-game and you will certainly enjoy it.

    Boring and one dimensional. Unexciting enemies. Very repetitive. Did not hold my interest at all.
