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 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.

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 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.

Fast-paced, brutal, and full of upgrade and equipment options that allow you to tune your characters to complement your strengths or address your weaknesses, Speed Brawl has a feel all its own. While sometimes the action can get a bit too crowded and confusing for its own good, making it tough to spot flashes on big enemies that mean you need to dodge, the feeling when you overcome all of that to win helps minimize the pain. If the run-of-the-mill nature of the beat-em-up genre has you down this variation on that theme is a terrific shot in the arm, providing ample opportunities for beating a whole lot of bugs ass.

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.

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 is a fast-paced mix of brawling, beat'em up and racing crafting them into a fantastic combat-racing experience that is both fun to play at single player or coop with a friend, with leveling up and unlocking new shops, levels and worlds to go through this game brings you many hours of entertainment, truly a game that makes me hope for a sequel or just games like it in general, though hopefully they will do a more non-cliché story-line if that ever happened.
