The Showdown Effect Review | EDGE

EDGE: "There’s a satisfying Shadow Complex-meets-Smash-Bros. style romp somewhere in The Showdown Effect, but it’s buried beneath gameplay mechanics that interfere with the joys its premise suggests, and there are currently stability issues with the servers that demand some urgent attention. Arrowhead may be made up of ’80s action-flick obsessives, but it’s failed to take onboard that era of entertainment’s key lesson: keep it simple." (PC, The Showdown Effect) 5/10
