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.

If this game can find an audience, I could see it in fighting game tournaments, but for now the game is fairly dormant and that’s disappointing.
Override: Mech City Brawl features a fun and engaging combat, featuring giant mechs facing against each other, or against giant aliens. It's slightly marred by an unwieldy camera which loves to obscure your view of the fight and limited single-player options. However, this is made up by it being one of the better party or online games out there, when you have the people online, particularly as you can group up with up to three other players to control the same or different mechs.
The combat is fun if a little awkward at first, and customization options are a bit limited, but all in all, this is a game that’s fun to go a few rounds with friends and knows how to entertain players in the short term.
Override: Mech City Brawl is good fun with a friend or two sitting on your sofa, but it lacks the kind of depth that a smaller release like this needs to be consistently compelling. The game's got some cool mech designs and watching big robots tumble through buildings is always enjoyable, but it's just not quite enough to carry the rest of the release.
Override: Mech City Brawl is as fun as your attention span will last. There just isn't enough content to keep players coming back for the long haul.
We enjoyed Override: Mech City, it's not the best fighting game, but is a solid one. With not many flaws, it's determination to make a rendition to all the genre classics make difficult to see in the game something new or original.

Override : Mech City Brawl shows a very nice gallery of giant robots, but unfortunately it does not offer the impactfull experience that we expected.

Override is a game that had so much potential and could have done something great with more ambition. In the end, no amount of oil could polish this scrap metal into something decent and enjoyable.
Ultimately, Override: Mech City Brawl has high aims, but feels a bit clumsy in its execution. It wants to be both a big arena fighter with giant robots and destructible buildings, but it also has designs for real competition. There's even a story mode in there with stat-building, customization, and bonuses like a goofy co-op mode. There's a lot going on in terms of foundation, but not enough polish and care in the core of it, which makes actually playing Override: Mech City Brawl feel bland and same-y no matter what you're doing. Frankly, many of the modes outside of 1v1 competition do more to expose problems, when you'd think they'd mask them. I appreciate that this game is making a callback to a genre that has been missing in action for a long time, but instead of embracing what that means, it tries to hard to make it fit inside a contemporary box. And that box is far too small for giant robots.
Override: Mech City Brawl, while clunky and cumbersome, is an enjoyable, casual party fighting game.
Override: Mech City Brawl had a lot of promise and actually generated a bit of hype from me. Sadly the game sinks like a giant hunk of metal should instead of rocket boosts out like we'd hope in many departments (especially the melee combat). There is fun to be had here but depending on the player it can fizzle out fast and leave you wishing there was more to it. I really commend the team for the ideas presented here and the support they're giving it is great with 4 more characters being released in the future. The foundation has been set, I just hope they come back to this idea with more in store one day.
Pros: Easy to learn hard to master mechanics, engaging combat, good content to price ratio, couch multiplayer is wildly entertainingCons: Campaign can feel repetitive and easy, online feels good but not enough players.
Despite these flaws, Override: City Mech Brawl is a funny and lighthearted brawler title for everyone, and it's another multiplayer option during a time when consoles seem to be shying away from local cooperative play. It's a title that doesn't take itself too seriously, and it does a solid job of bringing lighthearted giant robot fun to consoles.
New and light experience You can enjoy with your friends on weekends

Gameplay-wise, Override a very entertaining game; especially when it comes to local multiplayer matches. But unfortunately and because of some issues like the lack of content, it cannot convince players to keep playing for a long time

Override: Mech City Brawl may not quite nail the grand sense of scale, and I would certainly have loved to see some more organic monsters added to the roster, but it’s an entertaining little fighter to dip into. And, if you can drag a few friends into battle, it makes for one hell of a fun party game.
Override: Mech City Brawl has a few good inspirations and does well on some points, but there are a lot of problems that prevent it from becoming a better game.
