Agents of Mayhem prides itself on its glitz, its glamour, and its crude take on the world of the superhero. It’s the Kick Ass to our Iron Man, the Kingsman to our Justice League… and it’s a heck of a lot of fun.
It’s easy to initially confuse Volition’s latest for a co-operative, multiplayer-focused team shooter — something we’ve seen so often during this console generation. Interestingly, Agents of Mayhem makes a beeline towards a focused, dialled-in single-player experience instead. And having had a bit over an hour to play around with it, this seems to be a smart choice.
With 12 agents to play around with, a bustling city of futuristic Seoul to explore, andgameplay that feels tight and responsive, Agents of Mayhem offers up something noticeably different to what’s currently hot on the market.
