Override 2 shows great character design in its twenty (plus Ultraman as a DLC) giant robots, and the combat system is simple, yet fun. But the game has some technical flaws and the enemy A.I. is poor.

Override 2 has a lot to offer prospective players. From its satisfying, enjoyable combat to its varied, colorful stages and mode options, the game has everything it needs. Except for people playing it.

Despite some changes from the previous chapter, Override 2: Super Mech League is a decent fighting game that can count on a larger roster of robots and a gameplay suitable for everyone.

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.

Override 2: Super Mech League has very unique mechanics and fun combat, but needs to be rebalanced to be more competitive.

Override 2’s combat is drastically changed from its predecessor, acting more like a fast-paced 3D arena beat-em-up than a slower mech fighting game.

Override 2: Super Mech League can be a lot of fun at its best as a mech brawler, but is ultimately pretty light on content and depth as far as its characters and combat.

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.

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.

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.

Override 2: Super Mech League really should have been a fun and accessible party brawler. It certainly had the basics covered with accessible controls and a vibrant roster of characters on offer. Unfortunately an ineffective 3rd person camera, non-existent online matchmaking, weak league mode and a stifling lack of variety to its gameplay marks Override 2 a long way short of being the Mechtacular fighter we all wanted it to be. More 'Meh'tacular then.

Override 2: Super Mech League offers intense giant-robot battles and a few headaches along the way.

Override 2: Super Mech League is a great local and online multiplayer 3D brawler. With a ton of moves, a huge roster of cool and unique characters, and flashy special effects, Override 2 offers hours of fun. Go into the game with the knowledge that the online implementation is somewhat limited, with no cross-platform or cross-generation play. But when battling friends at home or online, Override 3 can't be beat.

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.

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.

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.

Perhaps an online community would provide a spark, but as it is, it's pretty rusty.

The lack of human players to battle online is an even bigger issue. The game needed to have cross-platform play between most if not all its launch platforms to maintain a community. It might also have been better to launch the game as free-to-play with a smaller roster and to then deliver paid extra options, once a group of players became fans. Maybe a future title in the series can focus on creating a community first, to make the mech fighting concept the successful brawler it can be.

Great mech design and accessibility cannot save Override 2: Super Mech League from it's weightless, lifeless gameplay. The maps often come across as too small, leading to cluttered fights that really affect the games flow.
