Corporate Fury Review

By , on February 8, 2011


Corporate Fury
Download on the AppStore
4 out of 5

PROS

  • Complex fighting system; mixes up basic combos with weapons and air-juggling.
  • Smooth visual transitions; vibrant 3D world with no loading screens.
  • Lots of fun additional items and people to fight.

CONS

  • Inconsistent difficulty; the same enemy can go from stupid to godlike without warning.
  • The adult themes border on being immature; not enough context given for some character behavior.

VERDICT

Corporate Fury is a strange take on the usual brawler format, breaking it down to a series of intense short battles; just be aware that the violent theme doesn't pull any punches.

We're delving in to the archives today to cover a game we missed the first time around. After the recent release of Devil May Cry 4 for the iOS it seemed prudent to cover a similar brawler title and if anything can match Capcom's over-the-top series, it's Corporate Fury by Swinecrafters.

Those familiar with the Clover Studio developed and Capcom released title God Hand might see a bit of a parallel in thematic style between these two games. What? You didn't play God Hand? Take a moment to check out it's interesting... 'style'. Are you back? Is your mind reeling from the shock? Now you're ready to play Corporate Fury.

In this alternate-world where humanity lives inside domes, the 'corporate' world has taken a different approach on how to arrange their hierarchy and everyone from the lowly workers to the CEO are forced to 'fight' to keep their jobs. You take the role of a man out for revenge, attempting to kill the man who murdered your father, but to get your shot you'll need to fight your way up the business ladder. This involves a lot (and I mean a LOT) of repetitive fighting to earn cash; purchasing upgrades to pimp out your character; fighting more people for cash; and so on.

Unfortunately this isn't a River City Ransom style situation where you can beat up dozens of guys before heading back to the shopping district - instead you'll take on fighters in various arenas one at a time before running around a considerably detailed 3D over-world to make your purchases before starting again. It's a tedious process that's only occasionally broken up by story points, though on the easier setting it is possible to finish the main story in a few hours.

However it's the over-the-top style of combat that manages to hold the game together, with a system that crosses the gap from brawler to arcade fighter fluidly. Mastering combos grants you access to powerful attacks that can decimate fighters, but reaching that point can be difficult when faced with the endless parade of stop-start fights to earn the cash you require.

Corporate Fury is a quirky title that won't win over fans easily, but there's also a depth to the game that puts other similar titles to shame; caution is advised when considering this title.
