MechRunner is a fun mech runner with polished graphics and a good attention to detail. If you're looking for an arcade-style release on PlayStation 4 in the runner genre with lots of action and mechs and explosions then you should definitely check this one out. There's a solid challenge in this one, even if it does get a bit grindy here and there.
MechRunner is an entertaining arcade-style release that brings some mindless fun to the PlayStation 4. Due to its endless runner nature, the game is easy to pick up but hard to master. There's a lot of weapons to unlock and purchase, not to mention upgrade, so if you want to 100% this one you'll be spending dozens of hours with your PS4.
MechRunner might work as a mobile game. With some fixes to hit detection, it could be a mildly enjoyable way of wasting a few moments while you wait for a bus. But when I settle in and get comfy for some gaming at home, I want something that's going to hold my attention for more than five minutes, and MechRunner barely manages even that.
MechRunner offers little more enjoyment or innovation than the thousand of mobile runner games on the market – except it cost at least 10 times more. Sure, it's reasonably pretty, shiny and it does have a catchy soundtrack but the gameplay leaves a lot to be desired. MechRunner is just not fun and a huge disappointment.
