Beat Down: Fists of Vengeance Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: At forty bucks, Beat Down: Fists of Vengeance isn’t a bad game, but it could have been an amazing game with just a bit more execution to go along with the excellent forethought. Sure, the story is pretty interesting and the gameplay dynamic is totally unique, but technical issue in the engine, graphics, and audio make it hard for me to enthusiastically recommend this title to any third-person action fan.

Beat Down: Fists of Vengeance Review

VideoGamer.com
8 May 2007
  • Excerpt: On paper, Beat Down: Fists of Vengeance sounded like the logical next step for fighting games; a blend of fighting and role playing, with the option to fight battles on your terms, with backup as necessary. The plan was to broaden the appeal of fighting games and attempt to layer the genre with something beyond the punching and kicking aesthetic we're all used to. Upon playing it, it's difficult to see why they didn't just leave it alone.

  • Excerpt: Beatdown: Fists of Vengeance sounds much better than it actually is. On paper, the combination of an old-school, Final Fight style fighter, combined with modern enhancements like RPG-like customizable characters sounds like a great idea. However, the idea never amounts to anything and is hampered by sloppy implementation. Graphics and sound go a long way is showing exactly what to expect from Beatdown .

  • Excerpt: The beat-em-up used to be a hugely popular genre back in the 16-bit days. Games like Final Fight and Streets of Rage were big, and people enjoyed beating up goofily named thugs in the street. A couple companies have attempted to revitalize the genre, but all attempts have failed. Beatdown is Capcom's latest attempt, and unfortunately it falls flat on its face.
  • Pros: + The game is playable
  • Cons: - The game itself

  • Excerpt: Combining a little bit GTA with a little bit Def Jam Vendetta, and a whole frothy can of whoop@$$, Capcom's Beatdown: Fists of Vengeance proves that even a somewhat flawed game can pack in a lot of fun. That is, if you can make it through the load screens. Get your b'mup on with Laurie's review.
  • Pros: ups: great fighting system, great gameplay, racially diverse
  • Cons: downs: long load times

Beat Down: Fists Of Vengeance

  • Excerpt: "Beat Down: Fists Of Vengeance on jälleen kerran yksi niistä surullisenkuuluisista taidonnäytteistä Capcomilta. Peli ei onnistu oikeastaan missään mitä se yrittää ja siksi käteen jääkin umpitylsä tappelupeli, jossa ei audiovisuaalisesti hienoudesta ole jälkeäkään, tekoälystä puhumattakaan. Hanki mieluummin vaikkapa Electronic Artsin samanhenkinen, mutta oikeasti loistava Def Jam Vendetta: Fight For NY.
  • Pros: + Tappeleminen on ajoittain edes hieman hauskaa, + Muutamia huvittavia yksityiskohtia
  • Cons: - Tylsä kuin mikä, - Mitäänsanomaton grafiikka, - Tekoäly, - Musiikki, - Jatkuvat lataustauot, - Pelimanuaalista löytyy vain kaksi ensimmäistä sivua

  • Excerpt: “Velkommen til Los Sombras, hjemby for voldsforbrydere, gangstere, seksuelle afvigere og nederdrægtige bartendere”. Disse ord kunne være en passende indledning til Capcoms seneste spil-hybrid, der forsøger at kombinere det bedste fra Vice City med det bedste fra gamle fighting-spil som Double Dragon. Læs her, om forsøget er vellykket… Beat Down. Man kan næsten høre på titlen, at det næppe er en oplevelse for hele familien.

  • Excerpt: Depuis quelques temps, le beat'em all a tendance à chercher une autre voie d'expression, allant de la Grèce antique à la Rome des césars, en passant par la Chine médiévale. Une diversité d'inspirations nette et on ne peut plus louable, mais qui pose la question du devenir du combat de rue de notre enfance. Où sont passés les Double Dragon et les Final Fight ?
