Fight Crab gives dangerous weapons to crabs, and it's a wonderful, hilarious mess of a fighting game.

If you're willing to set your brain aside and just get down with some crusty bumping, you can count on having a good time. There's a lot to be said about the spectacle of sea bugs throwing down with medieval weaponry. It manages to keep things smelling fresh by putting you through some absolutely bizarre situations, and you'll never forget the first time a lobster comes at you with a revolver. On the other hand, this kind of stupid fun is always fleeting. You're probably not going to spend a lot of time mastering the art of the death pinch, and once the novelty wears off, you'll likely molt your old shell and move on.

Fight Crab is weird, wild, and fun as hell. It's a game purely focused on delivering charming and silly moments, and that chaotic, no-rules atmosphere leads to hours of hilarious crustacean combat. The game could have easily been an unpredictable, button-mashing physics mess, but the fact that there are legitimate layers of executable strategy to the combat makes it a thrilling challenge to boot. Even if you don't like crabs, Fight Crab will easily convert you into a claw-believer.

Equal parts fever dream and time-waster, Fight Crab may find a way to sidestep into your library.

Fight Crab shares a lot of similarities with the glorious gladiatorial battles of Ancient Rome, which were what made primary school history lessons actually fun. Though, like the sporting spectacle, it might not be everyone's cup of tea.

Much like crabs themselves, I am tremendously glad this game exists, but it’s something I’d rather appreciate at a distance.

Fight Crab is a wacky, fun game. While it doesn't have much depth, the sheer silliness of it will keep you entertained for an afternoon. It does support multiplayer, and I found it to be a lot more fun when teamed up with my son. With easy to learn controls, and fast paced battle, you can't help but love Fight Crab.

While the idea of Fight Crab was novel and hilarious, it, unfortunately, fell a tad short because of its average execution. There were a lot of redeeming qualities to the game though, so it was still time well spent.

Fight Crab is something very different and I hope it pays off for Calappa Games.

Fight Crab is an impressively full-featured and surprisingly good-looking game that transcends its silly meme origins and ends up as something much more. It could end up a staple party game with its joyfully nonsensical premise and well-executed crab simulating gameplay, which goes above and beyond what a crab-battling game really needs to be, and we applaud it. Some novelty titles are a complete flash in the pan, but Fight Crab sticks.

Fight Crab is one of the funniest and entertaining fighting games I've ever played. Although it may seem like a simple idea, the game is very enjoyable especially when using gyro controls and moving your arms to fight your opponents!

Fight Crab's goofy premise, and at times cumbersome controls are all part of the charm. The game puts over 20 types of delicious crabs in front of you, battling to the death with oversized zany weapons. I couldn't help but chuckle the first time I faced off against a crab dual-wielding shotguns. The added online and local versus multiplayer and online co-op is a treat, especially considering how well the online mode works on Nintendo Switch.

While Fight Crab is far from the best fighting game I've played, it is among the funniest fighters, which gives the title real value, despite its quirks.

Fight Crab is one of the more ridiculous games of 2020.

Fight Crab is very much my kind of game as someone who considers a trip to a Salvador Dali exhibition to be a good time. I realise that I'm in a very limited niche in that regard, but this is a horn I've trumpeted more than a few times in the past: if we're going to be on board with this games as art routine, recognising that subversive experiences like Fight Crab have value is step #1.

If you are looking for a deep fighting game, I guess you might be able to find it here, since it does have a style all its own. Personally, however, I can't wait to play this at parties in the future and have my friends duke it out as gigantic crustaceans. You might not play Fight Crab every day, but if you're looking for a unique and slightly odd multiplayer pick, I think you might have a blast with this one.

Fight Crab is fun in short bursts or when playing with friends, but there isn't much to do beyond that.

Although rough at times, Calappa Games have created something fun and light-hearted that a lot of people will get their fair share of joy from.

If you're the kind of gamer who embraces unconventional and entertaining games that slide underneath most gamers' radars as they remain mesmerized by all of the recycled AAA schlock out there then you should definitely play Fight Crab. Don't make me pinch you!

Fight Crab is a crazy crab battle simulator -yes, as it sounds-, which will allow us to fight against giant crabs in the middle of different scenarios with all kinds of gadgets, from a lightsaber to a scooter. Interesting if one is a fan of absurd adventures. But if we want to go deeper into the game, Fight Crab hides a really deep gameplay that can make us do real atrocities if we are creative.
