Available on pretty much all formats including next-gen consoles at a budget price, there’s lots to like about Override 2: Super Mech League. 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 offers intense giant-robot battles and a few headaches along the way.

Override 2: Super Mech League truly flourishes when four friends can play together at the same time. It would be even better in the same room, but unfortunately, that's impossible for the time being. The online matchmaking holds up well through this setup, however, and you can definitely feel the hours melting away when you really get into the groove of things. It's just fun to beat up giant robots!

Don't even contemplate it for a second. This game is not ready.

Override 2: Super Mech League shows that a mech-fighting game can be fun and look good. However, the lack of options and the constant camera battles limit long-term replayability. Still, even for a short time, live those mecha glory days!

Override 2: Super Mech League is a pretty straightforward mech fighting game where players can play offline against A.I. bots or attempt their luck by going online, head-to-head (to-head-to-head). Right off the bat, it’s unfortunate because it’s a missed shot at creating an interesting story mode with a protagonist fighting their way up the ranks of the Mech Leagues. While it’s been done with other licenses, I don’t believe it would’ve hurt if Modus had created a story mode with their own touch. Anyway, with this out of the way, let’s get to the meat of it.

For how Override 2: Super Mech League was conceived, it should have been a fairly long-lived multiplayer title, a goal that already falters in its first week and not a little. The almost total absence of variety, of an object and, worse still, of fun (since most of the time you are against slightly incapable bots) make it a wasted opportunity, even for those like me who appreciate unconditionally all about mecha. I don't know how much margin for improvement this project can have, but I have some hope in that.

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.

Override 2: Super Mech League is currently wasted potential incarnate. It looks good, and it has all the aesthetic bells and whistles one could ask for, but the heart of the game is lacking. The mechanics are stiff, clunky, and all too exploitable. The levels are unimaginative and feel even more unusual when compared to the wonderful character design. As it is, the game looks great, but is a glorified button masher that is in desperate need of innovation.

Override 2 is a different beast compared to the original. It’s easier to grasp, much faster paced and far more dynamic. Fans of the first game might not gel with these changes which make it more akin to a traditional fighting game. Despite the tweaks and a lack of game modes, this game manages to bombastically portray destructive kaiju battles in a very satisfying way.

Override 2: Super Mech League gets it right on bringing a generous amount of robots with different styles, colors and sizes to choose from. Also positive is the option for game sessions with friends at home - or even online if you agree to buy the game together. However, on consoles, performance is a point that gets in the way of the experience. It is better to choose a PC with a good configuration or even one of the new generation consoles. If your vibe is to play solo, get ready for a lot of repetition and slow progress towards accumulating pennies and unlocking irrelevant little things.

The Brazilian game Override 2: Super Mech League has interesting proposals, such as unique fighting modes and varied characters. Unfortunately, much of this content is hindered by poor performance on Switch- this version is full of command lag and graphical glitches. This does not mean that you will not have fun moments in the title, as there are many cool points, like the opportunity to control a gigantic fighter Mecha. Just don't get too excited about the idea, as much of that greatness can be affected by the frustrating performance.

In Override 2: Super Mech League we find a very entertaining game of mecha fighting, which despite not having many playable options, knows how to give variety with more than 20 robots totally different from each other and with an online mode that with friends is a lot best. Ideal game for fans of aesthetics or fighting games who want to try something far (but not much) from Tekken or Street Fighter

Sometimes, aiming for a wider audience isn’t the right solution. Override 2 isn’t better than its predecessor at all. Its gameplay is much simpler and less appealing, its visuals are far from impressive for a PS5 title, and it’s still very underwhelming if you decide to play it on your own.

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.

The sequel to Override offers us a greater number of mechs, settings and game modes, but changes its gameplay to make it more arcade and accessible compared to the slower and more tactical gameplay of the first installment, which may be a disappointment for some. The game modes are insufficient and more could have been added, but the League mode is especially entertaining and will give us a good amount of hours.
