Override 2: Super Mech League Review - Take The Same Ones And Start Over

Override 2: Super Mech League Review - Take The Same Ones And Start Over

Two years ago, Override: Mech City Brawl was released, the title put us in command of a robot for battle in arenas. The concept seemed appealing, but yet, many flaws spoiled the experience: too limited content, too messy handling and fights ... In short, all was not rosy in the land of mechs. With the arrival of Override 2: Super Mech League, my expectations were high and I hoped that the major flaws of the first title would be corrected. More content, more rhythm in the fights ... These are all flaws that I found in the first episode and which unfortunately have not been corrected. So what does this new game bring us?

Override 2: Super Mech League game characters

Let's play mecha-no

Before I start, let's do the presentations, Override 2: Super Mech League is a 3D fighting game between robots (mechas), developed by the Brazilian studio Modus Studios Brazil, those nostalgic for Grendizer, Gundam, or even Power Rangers are in charge. of these iron giants.

I specify directly. If you don't have an online account, go your way. In fact, you will not be able to play even locally with a friend or against the computer if you do not have a Switch Online subscription. Now let's talk about the different game modes, they are four in number:

  • Quick game: in this mode, it will be possible to quickly launch an online combat in 1v1 mode or a combat with 4.
  • League: this is an equivalent of a career mode in which you will be able to evolve within several leagues and you will be able, via the garage, to obtain new mechas thanks to the money earned during your fights.
  • Versus: for local games with a friend (but with a mandatory Switch Online account ...), online or against the AI ​​for 1v1 (split-screen) or 2v2 fights, this is where it happens.
  • Training: The name of the mode speaks for itself, you are here to train and learn the four key combinations necessary for your battles.
  • Garage: this is not a game mode, but this is where you can, thanks to the money you earn during your league matches, buy new mechas, change your avatar or display proudly your hard-earned titles.

Override 2: Super Mech League gameplay

This is the mech plus ultra

The roster is made up of twenty mechas, all very well done with a very sought after character design. There is something for everyone, ranging from pseudo-MechaGodzilla to a unicorn robot, including a fish robot. Each mecha has unique attacks and gestures, but all of them have the exact same key combination for achieving combos via triggers. I am far from the variety of combos of a Street Fighter for example, but this is not necessarily a negative point, on the contrary. Because you don't have to learn endless key combinations, which makes the game very accessible.

A little adaptation time is needed to get used to the heaviness of the gameplay, it's still mechas all the same! You can catch/throw your opponent, jump, defend yourself, collect weapons that appear in the arena, punch and kick and execute ultimate attacks once the gauge is full.

Did you see your face, mech?

Graphically, the robots are really very well done, they evolve in destructible arenas representing different environments providing a different gameplay each time either by their verticality or by their dangerousness, with molten lava which damages us, for example. However, these arenas are very small, perhaps too small, and cause serious problems with the camera, the latter often having the unfortunate tendency to stand behind an element of the set.

In two years, Modus does not seem to have corrected the defects of the first part. Far from being flawless, Override 2: Super Mech League remains a fun and easy-to-access game for short games. There is a real feeling of power to watch our mechas lift a building to throw it at our opponents.

Override 2: Super Mech League availeble on Steam for PC

Override 2: Super Mech League Review, the conclusion

If you are a fan of vs. fighting with a multitude of combos, then this game is not for you. No single-player mode is available, since the game is only intended for online. However, the game servers already seem empty, and finding an opponent is no easy task. Let's face it, the game is mostly aimed at young players and veterans of the nostalgic mecha of a time gone by. All of this is accompanied by a rather well-chosen soundtrack, especially that of the title screen to immediately put you in the mood.

Atelier Ryza 2 Review, A Worrying Shift For The Series

With no less than half a million copies of Atelier Ryza shipped worldwide, I managed to give a critical size to the latest from that series. But great success does not come without great responsibility. The first having departed from many totems of the franchise, I was entitled to expect a certain number of investments to fill the gaps. but, It is not the case. The first thing that I hope very much by starting Atelier Ryza 2 is to finally be rid of the hopelessly candid atmosphere of the first game. Unfortunately, it's worse. I begin Ryza's new adventure when she receives a mysterious black egg. Left to perfect her alchemist skills in the capital, she thus attends the birth of a mysterious little creature called Fy. In parallel, Ryza reunites with Tao, his childhood friend. A model student in the history of antiquity, he gathered all the rumors and legends of the surroundings. The call of adventure is felt and the two rush into the ruins and other lost civilizations of the re

Assassin's Creed Valhalla Review: Strong Like A Viking, Thin Like An Assassin

It took 13 years and a slew of episodes for the Assassin’s Creed series for this brand new installment and then return to the Middle Ages.

A colony to manage, from infiltration based on crowd concealment, the more extensive use of environmental puzzles, all grafted onto the modern Action-RPG approach of the license: anxious to offer a “best” approach. -of ”of the series, has Assassin's Creed Valhalla succeeded? Before we get started, a quick word is needed on the options at the start of the game: on this point, Assassin's Creed Valhalla is adorned with some good ideas offering better customization of the experience: it is for example possible to configure the difficulty of combat, that of exploration (offering more or fewer indications) and infiltration (determining the ability of enemies to

Are 2D Games Still Popular in 2020?

In 2020, the video game industry is full of new releases. Whatever if you are a game designer working for a 3A game company, or even if you are just an indy game developer, chances are you probably ask this question yourself: are 2D games still popular in 2020? The answer might surprising because actually 2D games are more popular than ever before starting with the retrogaming industry. Thankfully, 2D gaming later saw a resurgence in the industry,  and with most of these AAA series receiving 2D (or at least 2.5D) entries. Just think of these popular indie games like Nuclear Throne, Hyper Light Drifter, and also Super Meat Boy! Those 2D video games pave the way forward for what was nearly a lost art. Even if some blockbusters like Red Dead Redemption 2, Fortnite, and Overwatch seems to dominate the market, there will always be a place for 2D pixel art somehow. We have to remember that a video game is still an electronic game that involves interaction with a user interface to generate v
