La prova è consigliata a tutti coloro non si facciano mancare mai un hack’n’slash adrenalinico ma dai toni leggeri, o semplicemente chi cerca un gioco senza fronzoli per divertirsi con gli amici.
Overall Brawl Busters is a fun casual action fighting MMO. The high doses of humor and mayhem make it perfect for gamers looking for a quick battle with little or no commitment. Become one of five wacky character classes armed with everything from an electrifying guitar to a Bon Gun. Kill hordes of zombies with your friends and battle other players in wild team divided death matches. Much like Lost Saga the gameplay is fast paced. Players are timed during solo missions and in multiplayer modes. The small file size and easy pick up and play gameplay makes this online brawl worth trying.
Brawl Busters is an online fighting game for the casual gamer. Even with a unique approach to gameplay, it fails to deliver a hardcore fighting experience. Brawl Busters simply doesn’t have enough depth to keep players coming back either. If my friends really ever asked for a recommendation I would tell them to check out Team Fortress 2 first. And with an absolutely dead community, Brawl Busters isn’t the MMO experience most people here will be looking for. It’s lacking in a lot of places, but overall I’d classify Brawl Busters as average: It’s great for a certain player base, but not for everyone.
I really wanted to like this game, and I know I’m being a little harsh here, but guys, a little higher production values always helps. Now comes the biggest dilemma – the game is free. Should I accept mediocrity because it is free, or be ruthless and stick to the point? Unfortunately being free is a big positive, unless you can somehow try to ignore the prompts in the main menu to buy stuff. They have to make money after all, right?
The balance issues plaguing the multiplayer are something that can be fixed with time and player feedback, but as of this writing, it makes what is an otherwise nice package almost unplayable. It runs great on a wide variety of machines, has a nice, if unoriginal design, and puts its pieces together with skill. There is definitely a fun multiplayer game here with the short, 5 minute, 4-on-4 combat keeping things moving along nicely. For now I can’t recommend spending time with Brawl Busters, but hopefully they can figure out the balancing issues and in the future capitalize on what they’ve built without letting it slip into obscurity.
