Jelly beasts fighting! What can be more exciting than being involved in such an odd activity? Gang Beasts is exactly about having fun with strange characters. This multiplayer party game lets you take part in cartoonish fights between gelatinous figures in weird surroundings. Knock your jelly opponent out of the arena and switch between levels which are surprisingly enjoyable.
Graphics — 4.5/5
Gang Beasts has elementary 3D graphics that entirely conveys the game atmosphere. Cartoonish animation makes everything fun: all the characters, their moves, and behavior, fighting activities, and interactions.
Though the performance is simplified still it is realistic. A weird animated world is utterly caused by the special game graphics.
Gameplay — 4.5/5
The Gang Beasts plot is inelaborate but capturing. Some gelatinous beasts are fighting on the arena trying to defeat each other. Knocking the opponent out of the arena will bring you to another level. Everything so simple!
Though the game is about continual fighting it is extremely fun! Just imagine silly and weird formless men beating each other. It’s a ridiculous sight! Moreover, you have to control them and the process becomes even more engaging.
You can play in the online mode where the number of players can reach eight people and gelatinous men respectively. Your encounters are going to be chaotic and destructive. Some of the fights will be really dangerous. If you are a fan of PvE mode, you can form a team of four people and battle with AI-controlled opponents.
You can also change the visual appearance of your character. Make it even more fun and silly using special tools in the game menu.
Controls — 4/5
You can play Gang Beasts with a keyboard and a mouse as the most of the similar games. Prepare to experience some difficulties at the initial stage. The controls are rather intricate.
Some actions need to be carried out just by pressing. Some other require holding the particular buttons.
Beat the opponent with the head and hands. Then you can grab its body and throw it away. To understand all the moves you need for a fight you need to manage controls for rather a long time.
Replay Value — 5/5
Gang Beasts is strange, silly, and unique. We are absolutely positive that you would like to play it from time to time. It brings you a memorable multiplayer gaming experience. So that you will never get bored even replaying it.
The game is shocking and odd. It was developed with humor, so you will have a really amusing time playing it. The wildest fights are worse the time you need to spend on managing the controls.
Gang Beasts is the perfect solution for all those who prefer non-stop action and unique gameplay. With its colorful graphics and weird physics, you will experience an exceptional gaming experience.
