Obey Me does a lot right to make it a fun play and entice fans of the genre in. The gameplay isn’t overly complicated but it’s still challenging. The dungeons are visually exciting and quite lengthy.
Obey Me is initially a fun game that soon devolves into an infuriating experience. With lots of weaponry and interesting level design, it becomes more enjoyable once you get the hang of its quirky combat mechanics. This interest, of course, only lasts until you get to the game’s final stages, where the final boss fights become incredibly frustrating, and the game becomes outright unpleasant to play.
Obey Me is a mixed bag: the good will outweigh the bad for some players, but it’s a brawler without too much weight behind its blows. It’s not the worst game, nor is it a terrible one, but I’ve seen better at the same price point. Get it if you want to support a small studio, but don’t expect too much.
If you're able to ignore the hokey storyline and amateurish writing, Obey Me is a decent action game.
Obey Me is a Brawler full of direct action, with very charismatic and friendly characters, a variety of enemies and settings. It also has a skill tree for our two protagonists Vanessa and Monty.

There's something about Obey Me that I actually quite like. Perhaps it's in the charming way this indie duff 'em up apes many of the qualities of the Devil May Cry? Obey Me is a trier, and there's something about cheering on an underdog, even if it means overlooking some game design missteps. If not for borderline unplayable frame rate then, this would get my recommendation, but as it is I suggest you await a comprehensive patch for PS4 before splashing your cash.
Obey Me is fun and pretty reckless romp through the streets as you slay enemies, reminiscent of the Devil May Cry franchise, but a bit more simplistic.
If Obey Me's many elements culminated in a more focused combat system then it would have been a must-have arena brawler.
All things considered, then, Obey Me is… fine.
