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

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.

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.

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 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.
