Gang Beasts Review
Posted: 13 months ago, last updated 5 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.

Rated PEGI 7 for violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures. Players need to throw their opponents off platforms and be the last player standing. This involves some comical punching and grabbing. Due to the characters being gelatinous punching bags, the impact of this violence is limited.
This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE 10+.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
