  1. River City Ransom EX is a hilarious, complex beat-em-up with a ton of options and plenty of options for fun combat.

    Atlus has managed to somehow improve upon one of the greatest NES games ever. To beat-em-up fans such as myself, the old school greatness means two schools – Cross Town High and River City High, with all the turf in between. Atlus took us back, and there's no reason for anyone to resist one more bout with Alex and Ryan.
  3. The combat system is not only intuitive and very fluid but is chock-full of "Did you see that?!" moments, and not only takes the hardcore feel of the original title but expands upon it with additional weapons, attacks, and techniques.

This game is quite literally Double Dragon on steroids and is one of if not the most fun fighting/RPG hybrid game on the GBA. Full Review »
