Description: Gang Beasts is a silly multiplayer party game with surly gelatinous characters, brutal mêlée fight sequences, and absurdly hazardous environments. Gasp with shock and delight at the spectacle of stupid pugnacious thugs punching, kicking, and throwing their foes into unspecified hazardous machinery, flaming incinerator pits, and ginormous industrial fans. Watch in horror and amusement as gangs of saggy beasts grab, push, pull, and shove their enemies from permanently suspended building scaffolds and commercial haulage trucks.

Review: It is hard to know where to start describing what Gang Beasts is. Yes, it is a Beat ’em up at heart, but it is also a crazy party game where the fun never stops. The idea is pretty simple. This online-only battle game is a duel to the death. You have to ring out or kill all other opponents in the game. How do you do this? By whatever means,you can come up with. Hold them in front of a train, throw them off the moving truck and even chuck them into the meat grinder! There are so many ways to kill someone in the game it would be impossible to name them all.

While there are controls to learn this game is an all out button basher. You will be fighting for your life one minute, defeating people the next, every game feels different, every round will end in a different way. This is a Beat ’em up of the likes you have never seen before.

Gang Beasts is silly, glitchy and doesn’t look amazing. But all those things make it what it is. This is a game where you will laugh one day and be angry the next, it’s a roller coaster ride Beat em’up that really shouldn’t work but does. Be warned, when you start playing this game your life outside of VR will vanish. It’s always…just…one…more…fight.
