    Steel Rats is an awesome 2.5D platformer that makes great use of motorcycle based combat. The team of four bikers are badass and unique, prompting you to try them all out, and being able to switch between them on the fly keeps gameplay fresh.

    Steel Rats is a title that we want to promote, thanks to a successful hybridization of playing styles that are not too simple to match and an immediate, amusing and at the same time varied and satisfying play structure. The smudging of the title is mainly linked to an excessively minimal narrative segment and to a sometimes ineffective sense of progression. Nonetheless, these are rather marginal aspects in the calculation of such an immediate, frenetic and enjoyable experience.

    It's not perfect - a clumsy button lay-out and some weird physics definitely hold the game back at times - but Steel Rats still manages to combine different genres in a surprising and consistently fun way.

    I think I would have liked the game better if the characters were on foot or the bikes were less touchy. In the end, I give Street Rats some credit for its creativity because I haven’t seen a mashup of gameplay like this before. It’s fun and has a great sense of style that works with the world it’s trying to show off.

    There is something enjoyable in Steel Rats, but there is a lot it doesn't get quite right. Against the other games of the season, Steel Rats just can’t compete, nor can it live up to the game most people will associate it with.

    Cool as it sounds, if you stick a circular saw on the front wheel of a motorcycle, it might slash the tire, or sever the brake line, or spark through the spokes. As good as Steel Rats is at world-building, it often fails when it lets you take control. Sometimes the answer it finds isn’t the answer it needs.

    This is a really nice game for a really reasonable price. Motorbikes, robots and survival struggles given in good style.

    Very nice game, with good performance. Nice levels but could be more intuitive and it could be more interacts with the player.

It's something innovative and new. Very cool mixing platformer, bike and actions elements. Additionally there is a story behind it which adds depth to it. Art, locations and audio are simply beautiful. There are some minor issues and game can be improved but it's really enjoyable and relaxing experience. Expand

Neither was it inspired by Biker Mice from Mars, apparently, which was also what I expected after seeing the title and learning that it was some sort of a motorcycle game. It’s actually much closer to an action platformer, where a motorcycle is just your means of moving around. You ride across side-scrolling levels rendered in full 3D, but with the gameplay restricted to a 2D plane -- with just a bit of space to move towards and away from the camera (which sort of allows you to “switch lanes”, e.g. you can pass next to a ramp located more towards the background of the given location, make a sharp U-turn and enter the ramp).

Being able to cut trough a bunch of junkbots and driving upside down is a trill ! I just would like to have more variation in the choice of skins. Besides some small bugs the game is really enjoyable and challenging! Expand

    Actually it's a really fun game to play.
    You have to get used to the controls at first but then it's pure fun. Kinda hard from times to times

    Sometimes the game feels unfair, very frustrating, and quite hard, it surpasses that with the checkpoint system, but sometimes, we felt it could be better. combat feels out of place, needs some improvement, but it's already a step toward something new.

    The controls are a part of the challenge, the faster you master them, the better it gets!
