    In Space We Brawl is a twin stick shooter with a fresh formula that nails the true meaning of fun and competition.

    Four guys have given rise to a fascinating and fun project, and with the right push and a greater investment In Space We Brawl could have been able to rise beyond the classic arcade titles seen on PSN and Xbox Live. We just have to cross our fingers and wait for a future update that fills in the gaps of a non existing online multiplayer mode.

    A very nice "couch multiplayer" game, sadly with no option for single player (no bots!) and online multiplayer.

    Offline multiplayer may be increasingly a thing of the past, but In Space We Brawl isn’t anywhere near interesting enough to reverse that trend.

    Having a complex customisation and battle system, means that whenever a new player comes along the first few rounds are quite dull while they learn the ropes. And by the time they've learned the ropes it's time to move on to the next game.

    If you loved Geometry Wars and you’ve got three buddies looking for some couch gaming action then you might want to consider In Space We Brawl, however, in my opinion, you’ll have more fun simply going back and playing Geometry Wars.

    Too stingy to give rise to large parties. Just for a drink, but at 12 euros.

    Local multiplayer like in the good ol' days, frag your (ex) friends and brawl on the couch in real life while you destroy them in the game.Local multiplayer like in the good ol' days, frag your (ex) friends and brawl on the couch in real life while you destroy them in the game. Ok, one thing that you have to know is that you'll need friends to enjoy it, and singleplayer content is kinda weak right now (with plans for more stuff in the future), but as for local multiplayer this is really great fun!

    Looking for a local couch multiplayer to play with my friends, this game give us hours of fun with each game session. Single player challengesLooking for a local couch multiplayer to play with my friends, this game give us hours of fun with each game session. Single player challenges look just a training tutorial, but it doesn't no matter.
    Fast frantic battles, numerous combinations of weapons/ships/galaxies and party-game mechanics make this multiplayer game the right companion for endless moments of hilarity with friends (and enemies as well).

    In space we brawl miss all the expectations about a local multiplayer.
    They try to make a deep customizable mechanics for the ships and weapons, but it results in boring and long ship configuration for an insta-kill that ends the match in seconds.
    Do you remember how much you hate your friends during a team selection in FIFA or PES? Change team, change and move the players and spend 5 to 10 minutes to prepare a match.
    Well in those games you have an avarage 10 minutes to play ahead so it worth to wait, but In space we brawl does not have a play through so long and it results in a game with a lot of configurations and less time to really play with those configuration...
    They try to put inside different game modes, but noone of them are frantic or fast, too much strategy in a game to play on a couch with friends.

    Conclusion: I'm sorry but this is one of the most boring game I ever played.

I waited until I could try localThis basically is a multiplayer twin stick shooter which sounds fun but turns out isn't fun at all. I waited until I could try local multiplayer because I thought maybe that is where the fun is located at but after playing a couple a games my friend looked at me and just said "this sucks". Yeah the single player challenges are boring frustrations that nobody should attempt. No online play. Nothing here is worth your time. This will be on sale for $1 during a PSN sale and you will be tempted but don't waste your time and money. Expand

    We’ve seen a lot of this type of twin stick shooter since Geometry Wars proved so popular back in the early days of the Xbox360 but this isWe’ve seen a lot of this type of twin stick shooter since Geometry Wars proved so popular back in the early days of the Xbox360 but this is the first I’ve played that attempts to focus on multiplayer, unfortunately it’s not very good.

    The single player mode is little more than an extended tutorial that explains the controls through a series of rather dull “challenges” and most people won’t waste any more than ten minutes on it. The multiplayer, which is limited to offline only, isn’t all that much better. With four ships on screen it’s often quite difficult to get a clear picture of what is going on with everyone just flying round shooting almost at random until just one player is left standing. If you’ve gone through the bother of getting 3 mates round you’ll want to find something far more entertaining than this to play.
