"Fight'N Rage" Review
A side-scrolling beat-em-up that recalls the glory days of "Streets of Rage" and "Final Fight," "Fight'N Rage" is a boisterous, kinetic button-masher with charm and energy to spare.
The stylized graphics from developer Sebagamesdev lend the games an anime-style feel
The fun ratchets up in three-player co-op mode, which allows you to toggle on a "friendly fire" mode that creates all sorts of mayhem, recalling the likes of "Battletoads," "Double Dragon" or -- better yet -- "Battletoads & Double Dragon."
The ability to accidentally or accidentally-on-purpose brain your pal in a tense moment adds a wild dimension to the proceedings that will have you chuckling at yourself when you let yourself fly into blind, vengeful flurries.
As the story unfolds, your choices can unlock different cut scenes and developments. The branching paths elements encourage replayability.
Unlockables abound, with new speeds, game modes and bonus characters abounding.
A blast of nostalgic glee, "Fight'N Rage is a well-calibrated, blissful blast of fist-flying antics.
