Gary Bailey reviewed Steel Rats on PS4 and gave it a 7/10. He had this to say about the game:
Steel Rats is certainly an interesting prospect. With some decent platform gameplay mixed with inertia-driven vehicle movement, and it’s all played out to a stunning soundtrack. From the Blade Runner-esque menu music, to the hefty grunt of the bike engines, this is a game best played with headphones – or a nice speaker setup, if you have forgiving (or hard-of-hearing) neighbours. It’s an innovative game that tries something new, which does work the majority of the time. At worst, it’s a little awkward and frustrating, but at its best Steel Rats is a satisfying adventure that will keep you entertained for hours.
Steel Rats is out now on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
