Override: Mech City Brawl had a lot of potential, but ultimately I like the concept a lot more than the execution. The fighting engine is adequate, but I felt like it should be a lot more fun blowing up a city in a million-ton robot suit. It kinda seems like this one was sent out to die, and that's a damn shame.

Override: Mech City Brawl is an indie mech arena brawler that gets a lot of things right. The single player is often a little on the easy side, but the great character designs and weighty combat help to make up for it, with local multiplayer proving to be a hell of a lot of fun. It's perfect for fans of giant mechs and kaiju brawling, and easily one of the best additions to the genre in a while.

This game offers an enjoyable online experience, especially with friends, and offers the mechanisms of a fun and entertaining Gameplay, but suffer from a lack of content and problems of varying importance in gameplay. It's good that it's half the price of the big games but I do not expect it's acceptable to have Season Pass up here too.

A fun mech fighting game, with really enjoyable slower paced combat. Unfortunately Override Mech City Brawl is marred by framerate issues, and there's nobody online to play against
