Critic Reviews for Speed Brawl

Speed Brawl is a side-scrolling beat 'em up with a striking art style and smooth animation, but is perhaps held back by its insistence on pace.

Speed Brawl isn't a terribly complex game but it does a lot with very little. Even though the story is quite annoying and forgettable, combat is smooth enough to have fun. Combine this with time limits, RPG elements and online leaderboards and it's the type of game players can play for quite a while. And, if you're not competitive, simply play with others and have fun your way. So, if you're looking for a fun new beat 'em up, this is the game for you.

Speed Brawl has a lot more to offer than standard beat ‘em up titles. I certainly dig the unique and colorful stylized animated characters. The game features satisfying local and online multiplayer for the game's 50+ events. There weren't any joinable open online parties while testing, but I was able to invite a friend without issue. There are global leaderboards for each of the events if you are into that type of competition as well.

Speed Brawl is a great game if you like brawlers. I liked the hand drawn visuals, the soundtrack and the different environments. I definitively recommend this game if you either want to play alone, or with a friend in local multiplayer.

If you enjoy beat-‘em-ups and are looking for a unique take on the genre, give Speed Brawl a look. Otherwise, I can't recommend the game for more casual players as trying to clear screens as fast as possible is often easier said than done. Without a doubt, speed kills, but in this case, it would be nice to slow down a little.

Speed Brawl is an exciting dash from one challenge to the next. Simple enough to be picked up easily and challenging enough to keep you engaged, it's just plain fun that will keep you coming back for more.

Speed based fisticuffs so good you wonder why no one else has done it before. An absolute blast and a must buy for fans of Sonic or Final Fight.
