    Override 2: Super Mech League is a vast improvement from its predecessor, with a great, varied roster (and more Ultraman characters in the future!), revamped combat system, and some gorgeous combat. The base game is currently half the price of a full-priced last generation title, so you should pick it up if you and your friends want some building-sized destructive fun.

    Override 2: Super Mech League is a great sequel, and by removing Mech City Brawl’s more tedious elements, Modus Games have created a thoroughly enjoyable 3D brawler. With more refined gameplay, improved performance, and a great roster of mechs, this isn’t a simple rehash of the original. Though Leagues can be repetitive in solo play and it holds infrequent performance issues, there lies a fun multiplayer experience here for Kaiju fans that comes highly recommended.

    Override 2: Super Mech League is a great local and online multiplayer 3D brawler. With a ton of moves, a huge roster of cool and unique characters, and flashy special effects, Override 2 offers hours of fun. Go into the game with the knowledge that the online implementation is somewhat limited, with no cross-platform or cross-generation play. But when battling friends at home or online, Override 2 can’t be beat.

    This is a unique 3D fighting game, surprisingly fun, as long as we play with friends whether it’s online or offline.

    Override 2 shows great character design in its twenty (plus Ultraman as a DLC) giant robots, and the combat system is simple, yet fun. But the game has some technical flaws and the enemy A.I. is poor.

    Great mech design and accessibility cannot save Override 2: Super Mech League from it’s weightless, lifeless gameplay. The maps often come across as too small, leading to cluttered fights that really affect the games flow.

    It’s very limited in it’s fighting mechanics, game modes and there’s no huge addictive quality bringing you back time and again for more. If you’re looking for a 3D-looking Smash Brothers-style fighting game that’s simply not as good as that Nintendo classic then try this. But as much as I wanted to smash up giant robots with my own mech monster, the limitations of Super Mech League left me cold.

    Override 2: Super Mech League
    a fun little party mechfighter
    Override 2: Super Mech League is an up to 4 play mech brawler that can be enjoyed, local, online, or even solo… though sadly there isn’t all too much going on here…
    Oveeride 2 is a very simpe and very button mashy fighting game, and that’s fine because I feel this is more meant to be a party style game like super smash brothers or the old wwe games. You fight on a 3d map, you can grab objects and items from the environment to use, throw those items, fight for a glowing circle to fill up your ultimate gague to let out a powerful attack, and in the league section of this game you can go through the different leagues, ranking higher, earning coins, doing solo fights, team fights, 4 player brawls, wave survival, a fortnight like stay in the circle control battle.. use thes coins to unlock more mechs and cosmetics..
    But override 2 does start losing its charm after a few hours…
    the mechs obviously have different styled attacks but don’t really feel too differently from eachother.. so even as youre unlocking new mechs and playing through the different modes, it all really feels the same, and othrthan unlocking each characters, there isn’t much pulling you through.. each of this games modes feel the same despite being different, and the 10 maps this game has all really start to mesh and blend together, none really coing to life outside of maybe 2 or 3.. very forgettable… sadly there is no oo this is my favorite stage, or this is my favorite game mode.. it just all feels the same, theres no real personality put into the overall world building.. I love the design of these levels, I love the design of the mechs, just more needed to be done sortve like is done in this level being shown now, where the water will randomly electrocute you, bringing the map to life… more of this needs to be done, and really more party like game modes, have my doing more than simple mashing buttons, because this is a good party fighting game, but it could be a great one with a variety of more modes, even if its just dumb fun like the control battles…
    And cosmetic wise, this is a major disappointment as well, each individual body part can be customized with an option of 4 colors each mech, but the accessories are shared and it feels a bit lazy, as not all accessories work with all mechs, I cant put a monocle over sunglasses, this should’ve been thought out better, give each charcter its own unique accessories, really giving me a reason to grind for coins once every character is mine..
    Overall override as a series has potential, you wont necessarily regret picking it up if youre doing so to play with friends online, but with a major lack in content, I cant see it keeping your or your friends attention for long..
    I give Override 2: Super Mech League
    a 7/10
