Critic Reviews for Mayhem Brawler

If you have already played and finished the best on the market, Mayhem Brawler is a second choice to seriously consider for the fan of the genre.

The comic book aspect and way that the whole thing is framed is spectacular, sadly the gameplay and longevity, less so.

Even with the little pathing issues, and text overlaps Mayhem Brawler is an absolute joy to play, wither in single player or in 3 player co-op. The eclectic cast of characters, the grungy yet colorful setting and the bass thumping, bad guy busting soundtrack really help to encapsulate that 90’s vibe the developers were going for, they have managed to not only make a solid side scrolling arcade game but they also delivered a fun and unique story at the same time.

Visually-pleasing, but shallow and overly derivative. Far from a bad game, but there's nothing here to separate it from the pack.

Mayhem Brawler is way, way better than it has any right to be. It looks good, plays nicely and only really suffers by comparison to its bigger brothers such as Fight'N Rage and Double Dragon Neon. The animation is lacking compared to these titles, but it's still perfectly acceptable, and the slightly generic environments are too busy to really pay much attention to. With a world this interesting, we'd love to see another game take place in Mayhem Brawler's universe.

‎Mayhem Brawler is the typical "Me vs. the Neighborhood" game, and as such, it's made in an almost perfect way and meets market standards. The artistic section is very well treated and performs very high if we compare it with other games of the genre. It's not going to be a replacement for the magnificent Streets of Rage 4, but it can be one more option if you like the latter.‎

Mayhem Brawler is an enjoyable scrolling beat 'em up with a neat theme behind it that fully embraces the 90s design of the genre while throwing in some modern visuals to give it that grungy, dark comic book vibe.

Mayhem Brawler is a top-notch beat-em-up that delivers far more variety and fun than most entries in the genre.
