Jan 6, 2021Override 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 smashOverride 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

Apr 28, 2021Override 2: Super Mech League skirts the lines between good and bad without ever settling on either side. The online play is a nice touch to make the Leagues actually feel like there’s something at stake if you can actually find anybody to play with.
Feb 10, 2021With revamped combat and a slick presentation, Super Mech League is a vast improvement over the original in many ways, though a lack of content might limit the amount of time you spend with this robot rumbler.
Jan 24, 2021Giant mech battles are nothing new to the gaming scene. Unfortunately, also not new is that the genre has few examples of quality mech-battling gameplay. Override 2: Super Mech League recently added its name to the fray, bringing hectic arena combat to PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Although fun at times, it’s ultimately hard to recommend this particular arena fighter over other fighting games that are also available right now, unless you REALLY like mechs. After saving the planet from an intergalactic threat, giant mechs battle it out in arenas for the pleasure of the people they saved. These giant robots - controlled by a human pilot - vary in size and stature, ranging in everything from beefy and strong to smaller and elusive. You’re the newbie on the mech-fighting circuit, seeking to make a name for yourself as you rise through the ranks and gain influence and rewards in various Mech Leagues. via Modus Override 2’s career campaign has everything you need to experience the game’s various game modes. 1v1, 2v2, 4v4 free-for-all… even a King of the Hill mode is available to you as you duke it out as one of the game’s 20 different robots. Each mech has a handful of different moves while having a special Ultimate ability available to them once their special meter bar is full. Of course, just because your Ultimate is ready, it doesn’t mean an automatic hit. Therein lies part of the game’s frustrations: the controls. Related: Hitman 3 Review - Slick, Stylish, Smooth I never expect a mech game to have the tightest of controls. They are giant mechanical robots, after all. However, I feel like Override 2: Super Mech League just isn’t sure what kind of game it’s trying to be. I’d love to say that this game feels like a legitimate, heavy-geared robot fighting game, but it just doesn’t. There are times when controlling your robot feels great - like you’re behind the wheel, levers, or whatever it is that you use to control a giant mech. Then, there are times when the hand-to-hand combat - which rewards combo attacks - is fun and exciting. But there’s never a good mix of the two mechanics. Often, this results in you attempting to make some sort of offensive attack, but the wonkiness of the robot’s controls causing your robot to veer off in the wrong direction. As such, there is a lot of button-mashing that takes place, which really doesn’t work well from a strategy standpoint. via Modus Battles also include weapons that randomly drop around the arena, such as laser blasters and giant melee weapons. Weapons are limited-use items that eventually disappear. That said, some of the melee weapons well outstay their welcome. I have won multiple matches from trapping my opponent in a loop of being hit with my melee weapon, with them being unable to escape. For some reason, the weapon’s limited usage is greatly extended, allowing me to take full advantage. It’s an incredibly cheap way to win, and an even worse way to lose (speaking from experience). Not a great mechanic for any fighting game to have. This extends into the game’s online multiplayer component, which features the same game modes that are available offline. Online matches can be fun and more challenging than single-player mode, but actually connecting to an online match can take a very long time, that is if you’re even able to connect. There just aren’t enough players playing the game, leaving much to be desired in terms of replayability. https://youtu.be/cIWzzAzmUxU The main selling point of Override 2: Super Mech League is its playable robots. If you’re a fan of kaiju or large-scale mech battles, you’ll likely enjoy this game. This is especially true with the game’s DLC character of Ultraman. Override 2 offers plenty of fun characters to play as in the base game, but Ultraman shines as one of the most enjoyable characters to play as. It’s a shame that Ultraman is locked behind a paywall (in the form of coming with the Deluxe Edition of the game), as he should really be a major selling point for the game. Ultimately, your Override 2: Super Mech League experience will boil down to one simple factor: if you’re playing the game for its take on giant mecha/kaiju arena combat, you’re probably going to enjoy Override 2. Unfortunately, with its control woes and small online player base, Override 2: Super Mech League just doesn’t really have anything else to offer for fans of the fighting genre in general.
