Heavy Metal Machines Review

Play NOW!

Heavy Metal Machines is free-to-play racing battle game set in the post-apocalyptic world of Mad Max. If Rocket League and an MMORPG would merge then this is their offspring, bringing all things we love in RL with heavy RPG elements. If League of Legends could drop in too, that would be great since HMM also has strong moba features.

For starters, in Heavy Metal Machines you get to choose one driver of a grand variety given its caliber. You get to use that vehicle’s abilities, stats and attributes so choose wisely, even the tiniest detail matters.

Getting into battle may seem like an easy task but getting the hangs of it isn’t that easy. You are thrown in a 4v4 arena whereyou have to move a bomb into the enemy core. Doing so will score points for your team, getting one from the opponents mean the opposite.

You’ll have to take advantage of your skills, 4 in number which are used to damage, push or slow enemies and assure victory. What makes this style of gameplay kind of boring is the fact that all games are set in the same map making each game repetitive and meaningless.

What’s also a big minus for Heavy Metal Machines is the fact that it doesn’t have a ranked mode, so you just wait huge waiting times (since the game has 100 players tops) to then play casually a fully competitive game. This kind of takes away all the fun.

Overall, Heavy Metal Machine is a really fun game with many defects in its core. It could be a bug hit if the team did the right moves but, for now, it just stays a casual low playerbase racing game.

Katerina is currently a student in National Technical University of Athens as a Surveying Engineer. She was a gamer from early on, spending most days on Atari and NEO GEO emulators on her parents PC, furiously seeking her next favorite videogame. She truly realised her love for videogames when she became an adult though and from that moment on she wanted to make it her carreer by any means necessary. After having spent a few years in videogame journalism she came to believe that one day she will be the most famous videogame reviewer in existence.
