An ideal mecha fighting game ought to have a few key elements: jetpacks, power swords, an utter disregard for property damage, and enough chrome to blind casual observers. Override: Mech City Brawl checks all of those boxes, putting you behind the controls of one of 12 different fighting robots in 1v1, 2v2, or up to 4-player free-for-all throw-downs. There are also PvE singleplayer and co-op modes planned, but they weren’t available in the build I played.
The stars of Override are its dozen robotic contenders, each sporting a very distinct style and silhouette, tons of personality, and a suite of unique special moves. I especially liked Shifu, a spindly, metallic kung fu master who kind of reminds me of Phong from the classic ’90s CGI cartoon Reboot and dishes out lighting-quick strikes with far greater force than his slender chassis would suggest. There’s also Metageckon, a lumbering reptilian bot who can roll up into a ball and wreak havoc across the map, and Setesh, an Egyptian-inspired giant who hits like a jet liner.
