Case; Irvine is a pretty by-the-numbers installment in the Votoms franchise as it makes nods to story elements from prior installments of the franchise in its focus on an AT mechanic named Irvine who suffers from survivor's guilt due to his past as a former soldier, that gets exploited by a bitter arena rival named Paygun to get him into an AT death match. While the storyline's nothing to get impressed over, the visuals here are perhaps the best offered within the Votoms franchise as the CG animated AT have a good deal of fluid movement and look more polished compared to earlier uses of the technology from more recent entries in the Votoms franchise. The extended fight between Irvine and Paygun for their second match is the highlight of what is otherwise a rather forgettable entry in the Votoms franchise. While not the weakest franchise entry, it still doesn't offer much to make it memorable.
