Summary: Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble might not sport the best graphics or stellar sound, but its gameplay is an example of why I love brawlers. Even though it can be repetitive and has a few gameplay quirks, Kenka Bancho has plenty of attitude and humor to lure players to the game and features solid gameplay, entertaining storytelling and a massive amount of replayability to keep them coming back for more.
Summary: Even with some questionable controls and outdated graphics, Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble feels like the River City Ransom sequel I've been waiting for. There's plenty of exciting action, tons of boss fights and a whole city to explore. If you can get over the game's shortcomings, you'll discover that Kenka Bancho is worth fighting for!

Summary: Kenka Bancho is a Japanese beat 'em up for PSP which puts you in the role of a high school student on a class trip to a historic Japanese city, includes no shortage of fist-to-face and knee-to-gut action, and all in the name of pride and bragging rights.
Conclusion: Being that, first and foremost, Kenka Bancho is a game about getting into fights with anybody and everybody who rubs you the wrong way, I wish said fighting had been more refined. It's not that I would in any way call it bad; it just feels, I suppose one might say, a bit "primitive", seeming to take a cue more from the older days of beat-em-ups like Double Dragon and whatnot versus being that more fluid and developed product we've come to expect from more modern...
