  • Excerpt: Beatdown: Fists of Vengeance is an interesting concept. It’s an open-ended sandbox game that combines the beat-em-up gameplay of Final Fight and Double Dragon with one-on-one match-ups that are reminiscent of games like Tekken and Virtua Fighter. Add on some role-playing elements for good measure, and Beatdown sounds like it should be the sleeper hit of the year. That would definitely be the case had these elements been executed better.

Beatdown: Fists of Vengeance

Playstation Illustrated
10 June 2006
  • Excerpt: The minute I saw the art on the cover, I had nostalgic flashes of Final Fight , and the equally brawltastic, Streets of Rage . Unfortunately, Beatdown: Fists of Vengeance , is only a mere shadow of those classic games. Graphically, this title has some decent effects. The character models are pretty gritty and urban looking, as well as being smoothly animated too. The cut scenes are surprinsingly well done, with some sharp CG going on.

  • Excerpt: Beat Down: Fists of Vengeance had the potential to be a solid, unique and enjoyable experience. Combining a variety of classic fighting moves and styles, throwing in a touch of Role Playing elements and offering a somewhat decent sized, free-roaming city sounds fairly promising to us – on paper that is.

  • Conclusion: It's a beat-em-up. You beat people up. If nothing else, it offers the bare minimum of gameplay to meet the name, but all the other claims of deeper gameplay are half-assed.

  • Conclusion: There are far better fighting games out there than Beat Down, and there are other mission-based city adventure games too, all of which perform much better than this disappointing offering from Capcom.
  • Pros: Big story mode with lots to unlock, 5 Characters, each with a slightly different story, Combat is simple, but satisfying, If it's your thing, there are lots of different outfits to buy
  • Cons: Dull non-linear game play isn’t suited to fighting games, The camera is awful, There are better combat games out there

  • Summary: The Playstation 2 is a system capable of so much more. The developers Cavia have had a chequered history and this game is going to do nothing to bring them up a level. Can someone tell me why Capcom decided to pick this trash up for release?

  • Conclusion: Auch wenn ich an diesem Spiel viel zu kritisieren hatte, Beatdown hat mir doch Spass gemacht. Wer nach langer Zeit wieder einmal ein klassisches Beat 'em up mit etwas mehr Spieltiefe sucht, wird bei Fists of Vengeance bestimmt fündig. In Sachen Grafik und Sound dürft ihr aber kein Titel à la Tekken 5 erwarten.

  • Conclusion: Beat Down : Fist of Vengeance ne parviendra pas à convaincre mais ne déçoit pas totalement pour autant. Sa réalisation et son intérêt en dents de scie en font un titre peu recommandable pour les joueurs les plus exigeants. En revanche, ceux dont la fibre oldschool tremblote toujours autant devant une bonne castagne de rue pourraient y trouver un plaisir frugal et abrupt que procure une bonne baston à l’ancienne mais devront néanmoins passer l’éponge sur les carences...
