2022/9/9: Playstation 4: Mother Russia Bleeds

Postby VideoGameCritic » September 9th, 2022, 4:41 pm

Here's a review you might find interesting. Mother Russia Bleeds is a somewhat obscure beat-em-up.
I think I first read about it in the book Go Straight.

What do you think?

Second to last paragraph there is an error that says "there are so too characters crowding" and I assume you meant to say too many or so many.

I have this game on the Switch but haven't given it a go.

I played this one, and the Critic's review is pretty darn accurate. It's honestly a good beat em up, but it's just so darn oppressive. I wanted to like it, as I enjoy dark subject matters and obscene violence to some extent, but it never really pulled me in like Streets of Rage 4 did.I guess the way I would sum it up is that the gameplay is solid, but when I'm not playing I'm not thinking about it because it really isn't a world I want to be in.

And yeah, the music is pretty bangin'.

I’ve played a few levels of this one, because it was a dirt-cheap download on PS4. I agree with VGC’s review and share evergreen’s thoughts 100%. Under the hood Mother Russia is technically a better game than Streets of Rage 4, the gameplay and fighting system are deeper in Mother Russia, and yet I much prefer playing SOR4 and would rate it higher. That’s probably why I only played 3 or 4 levels of this game before giving up.
