Tokyo Let Down

Cheat Code Central
27 December 2009
  • Conclusion: When all is said and done, Tokyo Beat Down is a charming tale that's probably not worth playing through. The dated gameplay and stiff controls just don't do the tongue-in-cheek storytelling justice. Most players will become quickly bored with this title, though there may be enough allure in the setting for genre veterans to suffer through the action.

  • Conclusion: In a good way: every cut-scene featuring Lewis.
  • Pros: Charmingly absurd writing hits the right notes.
  • Cons: The simplistic gameplay wears out its welcome almost immediately.

Tokyo Beat Down

Nintendo World Report
26 April 2009
  • Summary: Only its cheesy '80s cop show vibe saves Tokyo Beat Down from being a bland, unremarkable brawler.
  • Pros: Cheesy jokes give the game (and manual) personality, Fun in short spurts, Responsive punching and kicking
  • Cons: Cheesy jokes often fall flat, Gun combat feels cheap and annoying, especially when enemies gang up on you, Little enemy variety, even amongst bosses, Patrol sequences are a missed opportunity, Takes too long to get up after getting knocked down

NDS Review - 'Tokyo Beat Down'

WorthPlaying
24 April 2009
  • Summary: Tokyo Beat Down is a tale of greed, corruption, and good old-fashion violence. Experience the sweet nostalgia of classic coin-op beat 'em ups, where you must rely on your fists, firearms, and anything else that happens to be lying around to beat the sin out of Tokyo's criminals. What do you do when thugs and hoodlums put peace and freedom in jeopardy?

Tokyo Beat Down review (DS)

HonestGamers
16 April 2009
  • Excerpt: does right is all in its script. Developer Success and localizer Atlus know they’re working in a genre filled with clichés and Lewis Cannon’s every word and interaction with NPCs reflects this. They go so far as to name the NPCs things like "Cop who is providing back story" and "guy who is about to get beat up.” There are even multiple endings, and it's to the writer's credit that I'm curious to see what they are and what plot elements they reveal.
