  • Summary: River City Ransom takes place in River City where our heroes, Alex and Ryan, find a letter on Ryan's locker from a guy named Slick. The letter says that Ryan's girlfriend, Cyndi, has been kidnapped, and Slick has taken River City hostage with the help of countless gangs and evil bosses. It's up to our heroes to save poor Cyndi and free River City from the clutches of Slick and his underlings. You can play as Alex and take on the challenge alone or battle with two players simultaneously as Alex and Ryan. Kick and punch to fight your way through gang members, evil bosses, and other goons. Or use a variety of weapons ranging from a chain whip, brass knuckles, and a tire, to name a few. Raise your stats by eating right, and gain new techniques by reading books. With your fighting prowess and never-ending spirit, the bad guys won't know what hit them! Expand

    ever play castle crashers? maybe the scott pilgrim game? think they're pretty nifty and innovative for making beat 'em ups have depth? that game was made in flippin 1989, right here, river city ransom. with power ups and backtrackan elements, it showed that even mindless beat 'em ups could have an open world. I'll stop thet history lesson because it doesn't matter. this game is a blast to play. you're super deformed, they're super deformed, you beat the snot out of them, they turn into money. take the money, buy some food, get smarter by eating burgers, get stronger by reading comic books or playing video games. if you don't get the game at first bop around until you can buy stone hands or dragon feet, then have the most fun possible with two button combat. surprisingly, there are even combos you can preform, though there's no reason to tell you them because the bosses will destroy you with the best ones. beat 'em ups don't get better than this.
