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.
All in all, Override: Mech City Brawl is at its core a great game. Never before has a mech game looked this good, been so lovingly designed and detailed, or felt so right. There are some issues with how barebones it feels at the moment, with a campaign that quickly outstays its welcome and only a handful of maps to fight on. Still, the game is a lot of fun to play, and with some more maps tossed into the rotation, that’s a problem that can be easily fixed.
Override: Mech City Brawl is a game that knows exactly what it is: its short, sweet, and all about explosions and destruction. With the unique styles and appearance of each mech you can clearly feel the care and attention the developers put into having a roster that stood out, but I can’t help but feel with a little more added to the campaign or a few skirmishes or single player touches, this could easily have been a sleeper hit.
