Strange Brigade Reviews Summary

Level Design
Technical Issues
Inconsistent Gameplay

Summary: Strange Brigade is a perfectly serviceable co-op shooter that, through its levels and gameplay, can provide some great fun for groups of gamers. However, technical issues and an overall inconsistent experience will push some to move on faster than they'd like.

WILL YOU ANSWER THE CALL TO ADVENTURE? Egypt, 1930's. Erased from ancient history and buried in a nameless tomb for 4,000 years, Seteki the Witch Queen has risen once again. Only one troop of daring heroes can stand against the fearsome power of Seteki and her army of mummified monstrosities: The Strange Brigade! Explore remarkable ruins, solve perilous puzzles and uncover tantalising treasure while blasting your way through an array of undead enemies in thrilling third-person action that’s certain to bring out your inner adventurer! ONE GRIPPING ADVENTURE Hunt the foul Seteki through a rip-roaring campaign filled with dangerous dig sites, prodigious pyramids and crumbling caves packed with bountiful foes to send back to the afterlife. Explore alone or team up in 2-4 player online co-op! FOUR FEARLESS FORTUNE HUNTERS Travel the ancient world as one of four dashing agents trained to tackle the supernatural. Unleash devastating magical powers and unload powerful prototype weapons such as the fire-spitting Krakatoa, the ice cold Chill Burster, and the brain-busting Blunderbuss! A LEGION OF MALEVOLENT MONSTERS Seteki is not the only mythological menace to have awoken … she’s brought an army of loyal beasts with her! Face her many nefarious ne’er-do-wells, including moaning mummies, fire-breathing assassins, armour-plated minotaurs, giant scorpions and much, much worse! TONS OF TERRIFYING TRAPS Keep an eye on your environment to find creative ways to boff your enemies! Decapitate the undead with spinning blades, fry them to a crisp with fire traps, crush them with a well-placed boulder and more. You wouldn’t set them on your team mates … would you? OODLES OF PUZZLING PREDICAMENTS Keep those peepers peeled for suspicious clues, secret entrances and ancient contraptions that need re-awakening! Who knows what alluring treasures and buried riches await you on the other side…

Rebellion serves up another enjoyably pulpy shooter, though Strange Brigade struggles to stand out.

A bare-bones basic shooter that's good for some fun with friends, but there are other, better co-op adventures out there.

While Strange Brigade can be frustrating at times, the charm of its 1930s world, the wonderfully exaggerated English alliteration of its narrator, and solid level design, combat encounters, and four-player co-op make it a strong, stylish third-person shooter. Hopefully this isn't the last time a situation calls for the expertise of the Strange Brigade.

Fleeting, forgettable fun at its most flamboyant, you'll likely enjoy Strange Brigade for a jiffy before shortly moving on to bigger, better things.
