Strikers Edge Reviews
I have no skill when it comes to playing this game, yet I enjoyed my time with it. The two most important aspects of the game could have used a lot more support, but I choose to view that as a sign of greater things to come from the developers, whether in the form of a sequel or another product.
Strikers Edge is a new dodgeball-like brawler game for PS4 and PC that has nice lore, an awesome graphical style, and in-depth gameplay.
Strikers Edge is a fun arcade-style arena battle release on PlayStation 4 that is worth checking out. The gameplay mechanics are easy to understand but hard to master since this is basically a game in which you try to force your opponent into making a mistake so that you can corner him/her as you throw your weapon to slowly but surely chip at their health. Between the single-player campaigns and the local and online multiplayer side of things, you'll be spending dozens of hours playing this one on Sony's home console, and I'm sure you will have a blast doing so.
Were Strikers Edge any more expensive than it is, it would be difficult to recommend. There's not a ton of content here, and it's not the kind of game that is going to keep you engaged for hours a day. For [its low price], however, it doesn't need to be.
In summary, Strikers Edge is a fun game to play. I am looking forward to playing the 2v2 mode with a friend. But this isn't a game I can see myself sinking my teeth into. It is a game where I can play for an hour a day and then move on. Within that hour though, you will have an exciting experience.
Strikers Edge has a strong and satisfying core, but there just isn't enough surrounding that core experience to keep me engaged for very long. A lack of game mode variety would be excusable if there were some incentive for me to keep playing the one core mode this game has, but that incentive is nowhere to be found. Coupled with the lack of character descriptions or a proper way to practice their abilities, Strikers Edge is a lot like highschool dodgeball; you can only enjoy the same rubber ball hitting you in the teeth for so long before you decide to play something else.
Striker's Edge harks back to the time of 90s arcade sports titles, and it's just as fun but short lived as they were.
While I like just about everything that's presented in Strikers Edge, prolonged periods of play had me comparing the final product to Pong. That's not a great comparison in 2018 unless you believe there's no beating the classics.
Strikers Edge is a fun arcade-style release that takes the rules of dodgeball to give us a medieval arena-based release where blunt weapons and spells will be sent flying all over the place to try and get a headshot here and there for massive damage to win the match. The game's colorful setting and tight gameplay mechanics give us a solid indie release on PS4, but even though it does include a single player campaign mode, its focus on multiplayer sessions and online gaming will keep some of you from playing this release.
While I didn't have the best experience playing this title online, I did have a ton of fun playing against the AI. This title is one of those that is brilliant for parties but is also great for just playing by yourself or online with friends.
For a short time, I was genuinely in love with this game. It managed to be so damn fun, despite the fact that it was whipping my ass right and left. The low-fi production values and unique character designs and power-ups only deepened my affections. However, the fact remains that while it was fun, it was a supernova of a game. It burned hot and bright for a short period of time and then fizzled out almost as quickly. It's surely worth a glance, but it may be best to wait until you can play this with friends, where it has the chance to truly shine.
While Strikers Edge has interesting ideas, it fails to expand on many of them making for a bare-bones experience.
It's fast, frantic, and quite fun overall, but the surprisingly steep challenge and general lack of variety might have players moving on after only a matter of hours.
Although Strikers Edge doesn't quite reach the lofty heights of its peers, it's still a decent multiplayer game with a good premise and fun action. The differences between the characters give the combat just enough nuance to keep things interesting, but a lack of stages or alternate modes may quickly diminish your interest. If you're on the hunt for a new multiplayer title to play with your buddies, this certainly will do the trick, if only for a limited amount of time.
It might be an interesting game, if anyone played it.
If you're looking for the next must-have competitive multiplayer game then you may be disappointed with Strikers Edge's basic gameplay and lack of content.
All in all, Strikers Edge is a moderately fun game with limited long-term appeal. It's sincere enough but, ultimately, rather forgettable.
Strikers Edge has some decent mechanics at its core, but a lack of gameplay modes, short campaign and deserted online scene make this essentially a barebones local multiplayer title with a high asking price.
While I still love the idea behind the game and its visual appeal can be commended, it feels like it's too barebones an experience. It needs a better (and longer) campaign, more varied characters and a lot more arenas to keep you interested.
Dodgeball in school was much better than this poor knock-off. Lousy copies of popular characters won't suffice for anyone to play Strikers Edge longer that a quarter.
