    Override 2: Super Mech League changes the formula for the story mode from its predecessor in a way that isn’t my favorite. That doesn’t take away from the stunning visuals this 3D brawler gives us. Unfortunately it seems Override 2: Super Mech League was banking on online play and I had a tough time finding opponents. Luckily bot matches can supplement our need to finish sponsor tasks but ultimately the game could use a bit more life.

    If you’re a diehard fan of city-stomping robots, Override 2: Super Mech League’s combat will surely keep your attention for a while. It is a great looking game with some stellar robot designs, but that only does so much. With nothing more than samey online fights again and again, this is a game that will rust up sooner rather than later.

    Override 2: Super Mech League is fun on a multiplayer level and we'll really enjoy it with friends. Correct and enjoyable if you manage to get into its competition dynamics but with several errors that keep it from the best fighting games.

    The core of it is basic but solid. Ultimately, though, it’s let down by League mode which becomes a repetitive slog way too quickly. It’s also disappointing that you can’t easily party up with friends in any mode other than Versus, where you’re stuck fighting against each other or the CPU. If you find solace in repetition, or have a group of friends that regularly get together and would enjoy some mech-based mayhem, definitely consider picking it up. Otherwise, you might want to give it a miss and see if it’s improved further down the line.

    Override 2: Super Mech League has many of the pieces that would make it work as a full package, but when the oversized mechs actually go to battle, it becomes a shallow, unrewarding shell of its potential.

    While fans of the original might be turned off from the drastic combat changes, what I will say is that it feels much more accessible, as my daughter was able to easily jump in and start doing cool moves without having to memorize a bunch of inputs. While this opens it up to a larger audience, it by no way feels even remotely balanced and usually degrades into who’s spammed special moves can outperform the others spammed move sets.

    There isn’t much positive to say about OverRide 2: Super Mech League. Although the game provides a diverse cast of characters, it also provides a mostly online centric experience while lacking a playerbase to make it work. The graphics look relatively nice running on the Xbox Series X, however, the gameplay is extremely clunky and unrefined, especially when it comes to the awkward trigger-centric control scheme. The campaign is relatively non-existent and mostly serves as a tutorial to teach players important game mechanics. All-in-all, OverRide 2: Super Mech League is a disappointing brawler experience.

    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
