Crossout Mobile as the name suggests is a mobile version of the original Crossout game that was developed by Targem Games and published by Gaijin Entertainment on Consoles and PC. Gaijin was also behind the extremely popular war combat MMO- War Thunder. While rumors about Crossout Mobile have been floating around the internet for a couple of years, the game is out now in Russia and a few other locations with a global version hopefully coming soon. Here in this article, we will review Crossout Mobile and share our first impressions of the game.
Now the game clearly is heavily based on the console/PC version but there’s a couple of changes here and there to make it a bit different and to make it work properly on mobile. At first glance, it’s evident that the game is really inspired by Mad Max with the apocalyptic setting and wonky-looking rough and tough vehicles.
Take on a post apocalyptic battlefield with your battle machine
Starting off with the review, Crossout Mobile can be categorized as an online vehicular combat type game. The core gameplay is all about taking out other vehicles in the arena with the lethal guns mounted to your own vehicle of choice. There’s a bunch of different game modes but most of it is team-based 6v6 combat.
There’s a story and set up for the game but it just lets you in on what led up to the world becoming a wasteland- An alien invasion and a genetic testing failure that destroyed the world as we know it and gave rise to lawlessness and fighting. The game’s tagline is Craft. Ride. Destroy. which is all you need to know about the game.
Customise your monster with an arsenal of weapons and turn your enemies into scrap
The vehicles that players can drive around in are highly customizable with different kinds of weapons to do damage and various performance-enhancing parts that allow you to take hits without completely breaking down. There’s a selection of different car models as well that fit in pretty well with the gameplay. In terms of the arsenal, players have access to miniguns, turrets, rocket launchers, and other very heavy weaponry to destroy their enemies.
Another really good thing about the game is the maps. They’re the right size and sort of balanced because they’re neither too small which allows the vehicles to maneuver around and nor are they too big so that there’s never a quiet moment. There’s also a good balance between how much damage vehicles can deal and how much damage they can take.
The game is visually impressive and comes with fine controls
The game actually has pretty good graphics at par with games like Call of Duty: Mobile and visually the game is well done. The audio is handled pretty well too while the environment the game creates with a post-apocalyptic and Mad Max style is implemented well. Although it must be made clear that the game looks best at the highest settings but might look a little average at lower settings.
Nothing to complain about in terms of controls and UI. The controls are pretty standard and work fine while the UI isn’t too clunky either and players will get oriented to it as they play the game.
No ads, but IAPs can create a mess in the barren wasteland
There’s good news and bad news here. The good news is that there aren’t any ads in the game that interrupt gameplay. The bad news is that the game leans into the pay-to-win/ progress side of things. So players actually have to grind a lot for certain resources and to get different things in the game which makes it so that paying for items is easier than working hard to get the stuff needed to progress.
Overall, the game is a decent title with some really fun action-filled gameplay and a visual style to match it. For anyone who was looking for a cool combat game, this would work well although the fact that you have to grind to really get anywhere and be at par with other players makes it a little less enjoyable.
In terms of graphics and audio, everything fits in perfectly into the post-apocalyptic wasteland theme that the game has while there’s a good variety of different maps. Crossout mobile is definitely worth a try and really the only issue with the game is the monetization. Aside from that, the rest of the game’s features are satisfactory.
