  • Summary: Insomniac turned a lot of heads when it first revealed Overstrike -- a colorful, cartoony, over-the-top cooperative shooter that looked promisingly hilarious. Even more heads turned, but for entirely the wrong reasons, when Overstrike mutated into Fuse -- a new and toned down version that took itself more seriously and, to be quite fair, looked considerably less interesting.

Fuse: The Blast review

29 August 2013
  • Excerpt: You’re going to want to love Fuse. It’s characters are action figures waiting to happen and it’s guns are just waiting to be made into hip replicas and hung on the wall. You’re going to want to look more into the universe, and understand the why. You’re going to want to love Fuse so much that you can’t wait for more.

Fuse stylishly hits the target but misses the bull's-eye (review)

19 June 2013
  • Excerpt: When Fuse works, it’s a blast. The combat explodes into clouds of fun as you destroy and enjoy with your straight-out-of-science-fiction instruments of virtual death. The co-op third-person shooter’s skirmishes have a seductive cadence that keeps you close to your controller. Each trigger squeeze can elicit a squeal of joy from your inner 13-year-old. Fuse has that power, and that’s an impressive weapon in its own right.
  • Pros: Crazy, combo-heavy combat Fuse’s combat feels tight and well balanced. After all, the shooter-crazed minds at Insomniac Games developed the title, and the studio’s vast experience is evident in every bullet-pocked design decision. This thinking led to Fuse’s inventive arsenal, which includes a soldier-incinerating Magshield, singularity-inducing Warp Rifle, crystal-forming Shattergun, and fire-chaining Arcshot. Combined with standard-issue weapons like assault rifles,...

Fuse PS3 Review

16 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Fuse Image © EA "Fuse" is this gamer's biggest disappointment of the year. It's not the worst game. " Aliens: Colonial Marines " and " The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct " are far worse. Those games border on broken. This one is just boring. Disclosure: A review copy was provided by the publisher.

Review: Fuse (Sony PlayStation 3)

Diehard GameFAN
13 June 2013
  • Summary: In Fuse , you shoot things. What’s that? That description a little lacking for you? Try playing the game! Fuse is a bland, uninspired blob of a game. While it controls well, looks fine, sounds solid, and offers four player online action, it does so with vanilla characters, lazy level design, and downright boring action. It’s lazy is what it is. I never thought I’d say that of an Insomniac game.

1 June 2013
  • Excerpt: In 2011 EA showed off a game called Over Strike, it looked like they had made a Stallone movie into a game with all the B grade action to tag along with it. Cocky dudes, big robots, fun weapons over the top action galore. For some reason between then and now EA decided to change major aspects of Overstrike and add an alien theme to it. Now we have the retitled Fuse. An uninspired piece of boredom packed into a 6 hour game that most will trade in after one play through.

Uh Oh, The Fuse Went Out

1 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Fuse seems like it took the template for a co-op shooter and forgot to take the time to modify that template to give the game a soul. Much like the title of the game, Fuse is generic and easily forgotten.
