FairCritic Consensus

Technical Issues

Inconsistent Gameplay

Strange Brigade is a perfectly serviceable co-op shooter that, through its levels and gameplay, can provide some great fun for groups of gamers. However, technical issues and an overall inconsistent experience will push some to move on faster than they'd like.

Critic Reviews for Strange Brigade

A bare-bones basic shooter that's good for some fun with friends, but there are other, better co-op adventures out there.

Rebellion serves up another enjoyably pulpy shooter, though Strange Brigade struggles to stand out.

While Strange Brigade can be frustrating at times, the charm of its 1930s world, the wonderfully exaggerated English alliteration of its narrator, and solid level design, combat encounters, and four-player co-op make it a strong, stylish third-person shooter. Hopefully this isn't the last time a situation calls for the expertise of the Strange Brigade.

Fleeting, forgettable fun at its most flamboyant, you'll likely enjoy Strange Brigade for a jiffy before shortly moving on to bigger, better things.

A pleasingly straightforward co-op shooter, whose lack of complications will be seen as either a blessing or a curse depending on your requirements as a gamer.

Strange Brigade is a delightful cooperative shooter with some technical issues and an idea that isn't given enough room to breathe.

It may occasionally feel like a relic, but like the members of the Strange Brigade have shown, sometimes that's just what you're looking for.

Strange Brigade is a jolly good wheeze. The 1930's matinee cinema styling makes it unlike any other game on market and that's a rare treat. The campaign, although dragging in a few spots, is just the right length and has replayability thanks to the many hidden treats to discover, while the score attack mode and horde modes are pleasant, if rather flimsy, distractions. Tuning the accuracy of the weapons would make me very chuffed, but as it stands this is a sterling effort from Rebellion. I look forward to the further thrilling adventures of (dramatic pause) The Strange Brigade! Tally ho!
