Professional Review


Gang Beasts is a silly multiplayer brawler with clumsy gelatinous fighters engaging in comically brutal battles. Download Gang Beasts and join the never-ending slapstick massacre.

Graphics: 3

Deliberately aiming at an absurd and somewhat idiotic atmosphere, Gang Beasts presents a primitively shaped and a little too brightly colored world to fight for. The fighters aren’t the most detailed characters either: they usually consist of a clumsy body and a goggle-eyed sphere for a head. Such simplistic and cartoon-ish visual style fits the game well but sometimes can be almost painful to look at.

Gameplay: 4

Gang Beasts isn’t the deepest or the most technical fighting game – in fact, it’s quite the opposite. The clumsy avatars totter around, trying to grab or kick any opponent in their way, and the result often depends on sheer luck rather than player’s skill. In addition to this button-mashing madness, there are deadly traps spread across the maps – so it can take one lucky hit to send your foe right into a giant meat grinder.

All of that makes Gang Beasts a perfect choice for a local multiplayer party with your friends. You won’t be able to remain grumpy fighting as a pink ragdoll from the streets of Beef City, and that’s what the game is all about: it almost certainly will not become your favorite game ever, but it doesn’t claim to either. Instead, Gang Beasts offers you a fair share of silly giggling – and that’s pretty much it.

Controls: 4

The controls are surprisingly well balanced for a gameplay this simple and straightforward. They are not one-button simple, and actually allow many different moves like bashing, kicking, holding or throwing. But at the same time, they are intuitive and can be learned very fast. The only problem is that the controls are somewhat woozy, and the game offers no real feedback on why and how you won or lost a fight.

Replay Value: 4

It’s hard to imagine a person who’d like to spend more than a few hours playing Gang Beasts, but that doesn’t mean the game is boring or annoying. Well, from time to time it is, but that isn’t the point. Gang Beast is good for occasions like a multiplayer party or just a sudden urge to unwind witnessing a few silly slapstick battles. But that’s what will keep you returning to Beef City over and over again.

The Bottom Line

Gang Beasts review would be incomplete without mentioning all the little details that constitute most of the game’s magic. A lot of fun is added by customizable outfits like a pumpkin for a hat. And a lot of fun is added by little things like distinct sounds of enemies’ heads bashing on every obstacle imaginable. So despite every listed flaw, Gang Beasts is cool game for not so demanding players.

 

Conclusion

A perfect game to have some fun with your friends. Download Gang Beasts and lead your ragdoll to victory.
