Play Air Brawl

 

About This Game

Air Brawl provides interesting and creative ways for the player to destroy their enemies. Instead of just damage, weapons have many different attributes they can afflict on their targets. Some weapons slow the enemy, some disable their steering and some damage them over time. And these are just a few.

Class based

The game features 6 planes with varying roles and loadouts.

The planes are:

  • The Fatbird which excels at close quarters combat and setting up traps.

  • The Sharp Shooter which utilizes high accuracy weapons and high mobility to get the upper hand

  • The Witch Doctor which specialises in dealing damage over time area denial.

  • The Viking which overpowers its foes with its high health and strong belief that hammers make great anti aircraft weapons.

  • The Cyber Priest which has great supportive abilities. Either healing its team mates or disabling enemies, setting them up as easy targets.

  • The Elder which is the newest addition to Air Brawl. It has high burst damage as well as lots of crowd controls like entangling roots or magnetic fields.

Bought this game when it actually cost money, about a month after release or so. I don't have a lot of time logged on it, but holy hell it's an amazing game.

Pros:
multiple weapon choices per "class"
incredibly responsive controls
friendly playerbase

Cons:
small playerbase
no longer updated by developers (although the balancing is already damn good)
steep learning curve for those new to shooters in 3D space

This game is freaking amazing. Its not to teribly pollished but it is free and a tremndous amount of fun, i would compare it to luftrausers, save that is is 3d and multiplayer.
It takes maybe an hour or so to become acustome to flying the airplanes, but after that its smooth sailing.

tldr
10/10 game that more people should play

Air Brawl * 6/10

I've bought this game right before it became F2P... -.-

I'm not really fond of flight simulators but I thought air brawl could be a simple but fun game to play online, driving planes and shooting other planes with friends. And I was right. The game is really simple, you have a fistful of planes to select, all of them with creative yet simple design and you can choose the weapons to equip. Then there's fun.

Maps are of moderate dimensions, ranging from small towns, to temples with subterranean tunnels and it's fun to roll and dig into tunnels or small passages trying to avoid being taken down... You know, the classic fun with Flight combat simulators.

A missing feature is music during gameplay and that's nonsense considering the epic and bad@$$ soundtrack you can hear in the game menu. I could understand this lack if they included a feature to add your own MP3s in a folder to use as custom soundtrack ingame, but they didn't.

The Engine used for the game is Unity and, even though I'm usually against it (because used badly and unoptimized by developers), I have nothing to say against it. The minimalistic art of the game saves the engine from being too heavy to run on common machines even at maximum details, despite running in articulated maps.

Problems come with maps and planes numbers, which soon come to be not enough, but that's something you can live with. The biggest problem lies in the community. This game is almost dead, there are a couple of servers running, sometimes full, sometimes they run all the game modes except the one you're looking for. And that wouldn't be a problem if the server creation wasn't impossible, as that's bugged as well since nothing happens once you try to launch the server.

And this is a pity considering the game is simple but nice to play... And Free to Play... Now...

+++PROs+++
  • SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE. Air Brawl is a Minimalistic yet fun to play Flight Combat game
---CONs---
  • SERVERS. The game's worst flaw is the lack of servers. Very few servers available and not all of them have all Game modes. You could create your own server but the option is kind of bugged and doesn't let you by going in loop without any success. It's also the only way to play in LAN with friends on the same network so this is a very big Flaw.
  • MUSIC. Considering the Bad@$$ music you hear in the menu I was expecting to hear something during the matches but no. Too bad.

I played this game on this machine:
Laptop Lenovo Z50
Intel Core i5-4210U
8Gb RAM DDR3
GeForce 840M/Intel HD Graphics 4400
Windows 10 Home x64

Paid $30 for a 4 pack of this game.
Never got updated, devs abandoned it.
It gets released for free a year later.
Devs give me nothing for wasting $30 on this game.
Can't even host a server to play with my friends that I gave the other copies of the 4 pack to.

Thanks.

I recommend this game.

It's a very accessible fast-paced flight combat game. And it's free!
Nevermind the negative reviews - there's enough servers to play and have a great time, and the controls aren't difficult at all.
