Showing 1-3 of 3
A little old school, a little lame.

Summary: I was a huge fan of streets of rage, final fight and all those beat 'em ups, so I've always tried to find games like that. This is a little bit like but falls way short on almost all levels. You get to beat the crap out of generic baddies with a cheesy inner city plot. Gangs, betrayal, bad guys that are actually good guys and at times a bad irish accent. You can pick from a handful of run of the mill butt kickers and get some outfits and new moves. Typical stuff.
Summary: this game is great. it has an surprizeing story line. over 100 characters to be. 5 main characters for story. cool characters. change what your main character looks like such as hair,clothing,tattoos, and plastic surgery. so many options to chose what to do to your enemy. such as interrorgate,kill,recrut and more. create your own battles. sweat cutscenes. cool wepons such as katinas,shotguns,9mm, glass,steel beam, and tons more. your story could go good or bad.
Conclusion: Finaly a Good game based on Final Fight. Ok, we had Streets of Rage, captain commando, vendetta, double dragon etc... But, even with Fighting Force 1 and Die Hard Arcade, there wasn't a good game based in the final fight style in 3D graphics. Not until now. The game is a revival for Capcom famous beat'em up games. I hope there's a sequel. Here's the thing... You're from the local mafia. There's a setup on you and now you start looking for revenge.
