    Override: Mech City Brawl is a unique mix of colorful chrome plated mayhem and explosive combat that will blow you away.

    Override Mech City Brawl is a hilariously fun experience when it plays to its strengths which is in its battle system and multiplayer. While the game’s single-player campaign can be fun, some players may find it repetitive and too easy. It’s a shame that the online portion isn’t as populated to allow for a snappier experience as the game has a lot to offer for both those looking for a competitive challenge and the ones who just want to ram a giant metal fist into another bot’s face. Thanks to its low price tag, however, maybe you can entice your friends to join in on some of the gear-grinding action.

    Despite these flaws, Override: City Mech Brawl is a funny and lighthearted brawler title for everyone, and it's another multiplayer option during a time when consoles seem to be shying away from local cooperative play. It's a title that doesn't take itself too seriously, and it does a solid job of bringing lighthearted giant robot fun to consoles.

    Override: Mech City Brawl has high aims, but feels a bit clumsy in its execution.

    Override: Mech City Brawl has a nice, clean aesthetic with arenas that are fun to stomp around. The campaign offers a nice sense of progression but, once you strip that away, you're left with a fighter that's a little too slow and clunky for my tastes. It's simple to grasp but I feel it lacks a fluidity and immediacy other mech games can offer.

    Override: Mech City Brawl is good fun with a friend or two sitting on your sofa, but it lacks the kind of depth that a smaller release like this needs to be consistently compelling. The game's got some cool mech designs and watching big robots tumble through buildings is always enjoyable, but it's just not quite enough to carry the rest of the release.

    Override is a game that had so much potential and could have done something great with more ambition. In the end, no amount of oil could polish this scrap metal into something decent and enjoyable.

    If you dig mechs and brawling you definitely need this game. I was fortunate enough to get into the beta but didnt want to review anythingIf you dig mechs and brawling you definitely need this game. I was fortunate enough to get into the beta but didnt want to review anything till release day. The arcade(story) mode is great fun. It does have a Saturday morning cartoon feel the devs were going for. The online modes are great and you can tell the devs have been listening. My favorite is the 4 mech fights. I'm sure a lot are very happy with the split screen option as well. Congratulations to The Balance Inc. for the many years of hard work and an extremely fun game I look forward to spending a lot of hours on. Highly recommended. Expand
