LawBreakers Review Roundup

LawBreakers Combat

LawBreakers; the over-the-top, low gravity, arena based first person shooter. When I jumped into the beta, personally, I found it to be a decent experience, offering some fun within the classes and matches. After initially being labelled as a free to play title, developer Boss Key announced that they were scrapping that for a normal paid release. It released a little while ago and with reviews hitting the internet from a large range of sites, how does it stand? As usual, we’ve selected five reviews from other critics for you to sink your teeth into. Enjoy!

PC Gamer – 84/100 (Full Review Here)

“In this mini-renaissance the genre is in the midst of, LawBreakers asserts itself as a complex, physical, and deep competitive shooter. It’s an uncompromising game that doesn’t make apologies for its high skill ceiling, but isn’t so exclusionary that only those with pristine reflexes can enjoy it. There’s a quiet gracefulness to managing the Battle Medic’s hoverpack, knowing when to toggle the hover on and off to conserve fuel. It’s a treat to play an FPS where some of the roles demand more left-hand coordination than they do mouse aim.”

GameSpot – 8/10 (Full Review Here)

“One sign of any worthwhile team-based shooter is a level of accessibility where everyone feels they can contribute no matter their play style, and Lawbreakers succeeds in this manner. And while the lack of Deathmatch is a lost opportunity, its sufficient playlist of modes offers a viable outlet to flaunt your kill/death ratio, even if it’s at the expense of team success. What counts is that its fresh anti-gravity mechanics transcends its first-glance novel appeal and creates limitless combat situations that will be new and inviting to many shooter fans.”

GamesRadar – 4.5/5 (Full Review Here)

“LawBreakers is a game that really understands the immediate, kinetic, emotional and intellectual heart that makes FPS such a vital genre, 25 years after its inception, and sets out to create an exciting, varied, yet tightly designed theme park with that knowledge. It executes on that plan marvellously. When I’m not playing LawBreakers, I’m thinking about LawBreakers, while counting down the time until I can play it again. And without even taking the low price-point into consideration, I’d highly recommend that – if you care about the genre at all – you join me as soon as you can. “

PushSquare – 8/10 (Full Review Here)

“LawBreakers’ world and characters don’t carve deep impressions, but the experience itself exerts a strong pull with its diverse, balanced classes, solid selection of modes, and stellar gunplay. It’s more than a nice distraction from its looming competitors, and while the map design and implementation of gravity leave more to be desired, the game has the potential to further defy gravity and our expectations if it keeps shooting for the moon.”

“In truth, this could end up being the best classic competitive shooter released this year. There’s plenty of competition to come, of course, and it needs to tweak its matchmaking and push out some new content before long, but don’t be fooled into thinking this is just another also-ran hero shooter wannabe. Cliff and his crew know exactly what they’re doing.”
