Brawl Stars Review

A casual PvP experience for mobile players worldwide.

Supercell, the creators of Clash of Clans, proudly present a new battle royale mobile game. There are several game modes. These include a 3v3 game where players compete to collect the most gems, a 10-player battle royale, and capture the flag, where you raid an enemy base and try to steal their stuff before they do the same to you.

Concept - 3/5 stars.

If you're looking for fast, skill-based PvP, this game has your back. Its different modes of gameplay, streamlined tutorial, and team features make it a good game for casual players, even if it's not entirely original. Battle Royale is a very popular genre in the gaming sphere. If you're already used to the genre, this game may not feel very groundbreaking. It doesn't have any deep lore or setting to immerse you in, only speedy PvP matches. Regardless, it still has polished graphics, a wide selection of characters to unlock, and a balanced combat system.

Graphics and Audio - 5/5 stars.

The graphics are charming and straightforward, and the colors are bright without stabbing your eyes. The music is optimized for gameplay, entertaining, but not distracting. Once you get focused on winning a match, you stop noticing it. There's not much in terms of customization. This is a mobile game, so some limitations are in place. However, the UI and characters are highly polished, and the graphics can be enjoyed by all ages.

Gameplay - 4/5 stars.

The gameplay is noob-friendly. There is a brief tutorial that quickly demonstrates how the game works. It does so without making the player feel "bogged down" in leveling quests. After beating the tutorial, you are able to PvP, or as the game calls it, brawl. Tapping "Play" instantly sorts you into a group of players. Matches are 3v3 and last for two minutes, making for a streamlined gaming experience. There are other game modes, but you can't unlock them for a few levels, confining you to the basic gem-gathering game. As a result, gameplay can feel a bit repetitive.

Conclusion

PvP is easy to get wrong. Some games rely too much on the "pay-to-win" model, giving combat advantage to the people who spend the most money, removing the need to get good, and, consequently, all the fun of the game. While Brawl Stars does have micro-transactions, they succeed in PvP by making it entirely skill-based. When you join a brawl, you are paired up with users that are on the same level as you. The emphasis is placed on skill. Because of this, the PvP in Brawl Stars is enjoyable, if a little shallow.

Replay value: 3/5 stars. Rounds can only be played a few times before they start feeling repetitive. It takes a little bit to unlock new game modes/events. You may lose interest before you do.

TL/DR

Brawl Stars is a casual, skill-based PvP game that's easy to begin, but lacks deep substance.
