Critic Reviews for Brawlhalla

Some presentation niggles aside, Brawlhalla is an entertaining fighter with fun, punchy combat that just about manages to capture that “one more match” feeling. While it isn't quite as tightly designed as the seminal Super Smash Bros., the large roster, wide range of modes, and a reasonable level of depth help it achieve a similar balance of accessibility and challenge - you can play as casually or as competitively as you like. With pay-to-win nowhere to be seen and exceedingly good online play, this is one free-to-play title that's well worth a try.

Though a bit uninspired, Brawlhalla still stands as a solid example of how to do a proper platform fighter, with several game modes, a diverse cast and a beautiful art style making this one easy to recommend. Perhaps best of all, it's totally free, so you really don't have anything to lose by giving it a try. At worst, you'll find a Smash clone that doesn't have a ton of new ideas; at best, you'll find a new go-to for when you have a few friends over for a gaming session.

In short term, Brawlhalla will steal some time from you. But if you stay longer, it will start to steal money from your pocket with microtransactions.

Brawlhalla in its current state is a fun affair with plenty of modes, characters and options for fighting locally and online for hours and hours. Due to the game's nature, it will continue to evolve and improve on its formula which each update, adding more Legends, more features and more game modes on a regular basis.

Brawlhalla is a great, free alternative to Super Smash Bros., but just doesn’t have the same spark that makes it stand out beyond that. Still, if you love the grind and want something new to play with your friends without needing an online subscription, this is a good choice.

If you have a group of friends over for a night, this is a great game to add to the nights’ entertainment or a fantastic babysitter on a Saturday morning.
