Normalises bullying and horrible violence - simplistic graphics mean context is missed and lower age rating given
What's it about?
Plot lines are slim in most fighting games, but GANG BEASTS SIMULATOR doesn't even bother with one. You'll fight wave after wave of enemies (muggers? angry fellow commuters? gang members?), each a bit bigger than the last. All characters are gelatinous, so control is an issue, but there are on-screen buttons for punching, kicking, jumping, and shoving and explosive moves that throw you and your enemies into the air, scattering them.
Is it any good?
