    Steel Rats races into near perfection, with only a few downsides to controls and aiming. It’s easily one of my favorite new titles released this year.

    It’s frustrating that a game that oozes style from nearly every facet can need a mechanical tune up so badly. With more fine tuned controls, and more meat on its bones, this could’ve been an absolute home run for the developer. Instead, despite all of its charm, Steel Rats simply fails to really hold the players attention for its entire journey and it’s a real shame.

    Steel Rats is a game that should cater for the adrenaline junkies and action hero wannabes, but instead the convoluted controls and questionable handling slams the brakes on hard ensuring a much slower pace than expected if you wish to gain any fun from it.

    In theory the concept of Metroidvania platforming with bikes and elements of Trials still is promising. But technical shortcomings hold the One-version back.

    Steels Rats is the definition of a ‘meh’ game. It has some nice ideas and elements, but nothing is really pulled off particularly well. Combat is fine, if repetitive, but the awkward camera view, the unreliable collision detection, and the general lack of any real character, collectively brings the whole thing down.

    Steel Rats presentation capture's your attention as both the visual and sound design enhance the gameplay experience. Steel Rats is a gameSteel Rats presentation capture's your attention as both the visual and sound design enhance the gameplay experience. Steel Rats is a game that is very interesting to say the least because it takes the Trials formula approach and includes platforming mixed in with a "beat-’em-up" combat system and overall it works well. It isn’t a perfect experience and it takes a bit of getting squinted with, but once you familiarize yourself you’ll see a game that provides a unique experience. Steel Rats is all about getting from point to point and while this may seem simple to you after taking on a few levels you’ll find out that it isn’t as simple as it first appears. You'll be taking on multiple enemies and this is where the game definitely shines its brightest, due to the unique combat which packs many satisfying moments. Completing each level in the game is great fun because the creativity is intuitive and when you combine that with the unlock-able upgrades, it will no doubt keep your attention. There are times where it may feel slightly repetitive and there are a few technical issues on occasion. Despite that Steel Rats does more than enough to satisfy your gaming hunger. Expand
