  • Summary: Gang Beasts is a silly local multiplayer party game with doughy ragdoll physics and horrific environmental hazards. In the current pre-alpha players can grab, push, pull, punch, and throw their friends from wrestling rings, speeding trucks, and suspended platforms.

    Gang Beasts' madcap brawling creates a dynamic alliance between conflict and chaos. It also enables human responses like surprise, merriment, revenge, and screaming. Driving a wobbly creature to comically murder another flailing mess, as it turns out, is a pleasant and repeatable practice. If only three of your friends could always come along for the ride.

    If you haven’t played it yet, and have a few willing mates that’ll join you, Gang Beasts is worth checking out.

    If you appreciate multiplayer brawlers and are after something comical to enjoy with the family, Gang Beasts is without a doubt a game you need to play. If, however you rely on the presence of online players or solo adventures to get your thrills, then this is a game that won’t have much for you.

    Don’t get me wrong, Gang Beasts is frantic and fun, and there is enjoyment to be had. With 19 different arenas you won’t feel like you are having the same fight over and over, and the environmental hazards that most levels have add a unique spin that creates some memorable moments. Triggering a catwalk collapse on one of the tower levels and seeing my buddy panic and jump his way up the stairs and still fall to his death was one of the best moments I had with this game. Unfortunately, the combat and controls really hold back what would be a fun party game with your friends.

    Gang Beasts is a competitive brawler in a Human: Fall Flat skin. Nothing more, nothing less. The physics-based play doesn’t always suit the multiplayer concept, and as such, the whole ordeal comes across quite tedious and frustrating. Whilst I’ve no doubt that it will find an initial following, I do doubt its ability to maintain a fan base due to its lack of variation. You’ll certainly have some laughs here, but you’ll mostly be laughing at it, not with it.

    I think this game is extremely fun. I've spent hours on this game having a great time without being bored. The only reason this is not a 10 isI think this game is extremely fun. I've spent hours on this game having a great time without being bored. The only reason this is not a 10 is because I feel like they should add more content such as maps and game modes but that's about it the game is pretty good. Expand

It has a human fall flat physics about it and the fights are generally fun. There is a slightly learning curve with the game, but after cracking the main controls it is relatively simple. The reason why I give this a 7 is the longevity. It is a great game for novelty but it doesn't have much staying power in terms of variety - the wave mode is a good edition but it just isn't enough to push it to an 8 or 9. Decent purchase, but just recognise its a novelty not a staple. Expand

    Gang Beasts does have a bit of a learning curve to say the least, and while I never thought this game was going to release on the Xbox One itGang Beasts does have a bit of a learning curve to say the least, and while I never thought this game was going to release on the Xbox One it finally has... I enjoyed the combat because not only is the movement fun but taking out your friends is always rewarding so you can trash talk during the process. Thankfully Gang Beasts finally arrived on the Xbox One and while it's not perfect, we can all enjoy a laugh and fun in the gameplay. Everything from movement to the great combat elements is kinda silly and when you combine that with the presentation of the game you end up with the almost perfect party game. I will say that the game is best played in short bursts because it does still get repetitive somewhat quickly. There isn’t a huge amount of content and the controls being fun can frustrate you a little if played for too long. Despite the little issues you will return back to this game over and over because it offers you a variety of environments and they all provide action. Recommending Gang Beasts to you is easy because even though it has a few misses here and there in the end it's fun, full of humor, and another title at an reasonable price to add to your Xbox library.
