Top Critic Average
Hardcore Mecha doesn't bring anything new to the table, but it is extremely enjoyable. While having Japanese-only VO could cause you to miss dialogue in heavy action sequences, you might be having too much fun flying around shooting things to even notice.
Hardcore Mecha won’t be for everyone.
The campaign alone is worth playing, but Hardcore Mecha's extras give the package a real boost.
Hardcore Mecha's engaging single-player narrative, fast-paced 2D side-scrolling action, multiplayer options, and sweet mecha designs produce a well-rounded experience. The game runs and looks excellent on a PlayStation 4 Pro. The lack of current players online is disappointing, but there is a discord channel where others are looking to group up, but mostly seems to be centered around the PC release.
Although there are some annoying glitches, Code: Hardcore is a satisfying action game with beautiful mechs, solid single-player campaign, and decent PVP mode.

Fast 2D platformer action with a lot of in-game cut-scenes offers dynamic gameplay and not so amusing story.

Hardcore Mecha is completely surprising, coming from someone not a fan of mech stuff in general.
The decision of picking up Harcore Mecha is going to rest purely on if this type of platformer, and its over-the-top anime tropes' appeal.
Hardcore Mecha is a fun and beautiful mecha action game, with a very unique gameplay style and a story that holds its own, despite being full of small issues that undermine its potential, being a good game for fans of giant robots.

Hardcore Mecha is a gorgeous, robotic thrill-ride with more than enough variety to keep you hooked from beginning to end. Even if mechs leave you cold, it’s well worth strapping in for.
