Fantastic. Feels like an old school brawler. Great fighting mechanism and it has a nice variety of characters.

Ugly game. Controls feel really stiff. There is no direction for where you are to go. You start off naming a customized character, then after a level, you can't play as them anymore but have to play from a selection of premade characters. What's up with that? At least it has a co-op multiplayer campaign. That's the only reason I may go back to this one later.

What an awesome game. Simple, classic gameplay but with modern features and up to 4 players simultaneously. Great fun!

A real retro side scrollin beat em up. I was enjoying the first bit until it went open world. Huge levels with virtually no indication of what you need to do, how to start events or even what things do (like what to do in the classroom). I just kept getting into random fights. I ended up unlocking a few characters by pure luck and finding a dojo to learn new skills. I think Scott Pilgrim just does it better.

Fun retro game for its price, online mode seems to not work anymore, but again, worth it if you consider the price. If anything the game could do better maybe the mission instruction, sometimes it's not too clear.

9/10 Overall good classic Beat Em Up. Solid character variety, excellent soundtrack. Has a few shortfalls towards the very late game of a single solo play-thru on story difficulty (AI starts to heavily read user inputs for its movement and attacks) but can be mostly overlooked.
