Its surprisingly deep and satisfyingly weighty combat engine combined with three strong and varied player characters and a host of cleverly-designed enemies elevate it above the usual button-mashing experience perhaps expected of entries in this genre. It’s got an excellent arcade mode that branches off in various directions as you make your way to the final boss battle, as well as a ton of unlockable modes and extras to keep you coming back for more. Whether you’re a learned fan of old-school beat’em ups or you just like pummelling the life out of mutant punk pussycats and monkeys dressed as Bruce Lee, you owe it to yourself to experience what Sebastian Garcia has created here; it’s easily one of the best beat’em ups we’ve played.
Fight'N Rage has a name that suggests an old school beat'em-up and that's exactly what it is, a tribute to some of the classic names of this dimension of gaming that was so popular in decades past. But that's not the only thing that Fight'N Rage gets right - its gameplay mechanics amount of content, different endings and top notch audiovisual environment all contribute to make this one classic-style beat'em-up that is worthy to enter the Nintendo Switch of any fan of the style.
Fight’N Rage is a thoroughly enjoyable beat’em up; it’s well balanced gameplay grants no small amount of fun. The only downsides are content locked behind difficult tasks for casual players and poorly done fan-service that takes away from the story’s tone.
This game is criminally underrated. After diving into TMNT: Shredders Revenge and Streets of Rage 4, I was anxious to get into another beat em up, but Fight'n Rage just didn't initially appeal to me. I thought the male fan service was unnecessary (which I still find to be extremely true) and the overall presentation was lacking. Well, I took a chance and realized that it looks way better in action, and holy moly does it have the quality where it counts. For those who enjoy beat em ups, it's all about how it "feels." This game feels incredible to play. The depth is perfect for a game like this.... not as intense as a fighting game, but way more to do than just walk up to an enemy and hit attack as fast as possible. It's one of those games that when you put it down, you just want to pick it back up and keep punching those baddies until they explode into a pile of bones.
This is certainly one of the best Streets of Rage style games I have played on a modern console and I am a big fan of the genre. It is lots of fun to play, great sound and graphics etc etc. Just a word of warning though: this game is HARD on normal mode in single player mode. If you don't have a friend to play this with you might really struggle (like me) to unlock any of the goodies which require you to beat the game on 'normal' difficulty. And 'easy' mode is not available straight away and needs to be unlocked. Otherwise, this is an excellent game.
Damn what a hidden gem. Found this game on sale on PS4 and was attracted by the art and the character design. To my surprise it was one of the best Vita muscle played in years. A big fan of the genre I like double dragon neon and the new Streets Of Rage and this game has a little bit more complexity to those games. Similar in ways to another game called shing it has a very interesting set of combos to learn and master but they are far easier to pull off in this game then in shin.
SummaryFight’N Rage is a brand new old-school side-scroller beat’em up. Inspired by the classics from the “golden age”, and with an art style that mimics the aesthetic from the 90's arcade gems, this game pays homage to all classic gameplay features.
