Gang Beasts Review
Posted: 15 months ago, last updated 9 days ago.
Because you can also push and pull each other around, it becomes a game of tactical mayhem. Switch at the last minute to duck and attacker or send someone pushing you over the edge of a building.
There are four different modes to play. Melee mode is an open free for all fight where the first to 3 wins is victorious. Gang mode is a team-up battle where you work with other players on the same side to win. Wave mode pits you and other players against waves of computer-controlled characters to see how long you can survive. Soccer mode is a game of football where you are also allowed to attack the players as well as the ball.
Gang Beasts is planned for Nintendo Switch but no date confirmed.
