Agents of Mayhem Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Humdrum Gameplay

Goofy Weapons

Overwhelming Style

A decidedly less exciting game than past releases from Volition, Agents of Mayhem still has some of the sparks that brought Saint's Row to life. However, you'll have to trudge through some pretty underwhelming content to see it.

Critic Reviews for Agents of Mayhem


No Recommendation / Blank

A bizarrely hollow yet mechanically competent open world action RPG that struggles to justify its own existence.

7.1 / 10.0

Agents of Mayhem does a good job paying homage to the cartoon and live-action TV heroes of the 80s and 90s, and revels in the absurd tropes and idiosyncrasies of those inspirations. A broad and goofy arsenal of unique weapons and gadgets and the ability to switch characters on the fly to access complementary abilities offers some solid combat and good mindless fun, but due to some unpolished writing and repetitive environments and enemy types, it doesn't fully live up to its heroic potential.

Serves up a generous range of play styles, but it's hampered by repetitive levels and a few uninspired design choices.

Hero-swapping tactics add a unique edge to third-person combat, while humor and heart elevate Agents of Mayhem's typical world-saving fundamentals to memorable heights.

An obnoxious and repetitive open world game that does its best to hide the fact that it's a surprisingly decent third person shooter.

Agents of Mayhem is absurd, but it leans into its own insanity in a charming way and backs it all up with fun, destructive action

Obnoxious attitude, poor mission design, and technical bugs make Agents of Mayhem chaotic and repetitive.
