Excellent

So fun.

Rented it, played it a day, logged back in and hit Keep It! That's about as good as a testimonial as one can give a game.

Arcade style beat-em-up, reminds me a lot of Streets of Rage, Gauntlet, Golden Axe, etc. Fun character progression, dumb story, and solid combat.

Sole complaint is that you can't play online multiplayer without first beating the singleplayer campaign, although, it's very short and an easy obstacle to overcome, it's still a pain that it exists in the first place.

My grandkids loved this game. It was a shot in the dark for me placing this in my query, but it turned out to be an absolute hit!! This is a multi-player, up to 4, which is unusual for RPG games. Grandsons ages are 8 and 10.

Weak

Not terrible, but seems a bit dated

As was mentioned by at least one other reviewer, this is a side scroller with some lateral movement like back in the NES days (think TMNT 2). The gameplay is ok, but does seem a little repetitive. Since you can have 3 allies, but a couple other helping characters, just battling a few enemies can make it very difficult to have any idea where your character is or what is going on with everyone doing big, graphical attacks.

I was really surprised this was even a packaged disc game. If it were $10 on PSN, it would seem appropriate, but it just doesn't offer nearly as much as many other games for this system. I don't think anything was done that couldn't have been done on the NES or SNES with a minor graphics downgrade.

Overall, I would say it was worth the rent, but I can't imagine anyone spending $30+ on it and feeling like they got their moneys worth.

As a side note, the extremes to which they applied gender stereotypes provide a level of comedy to the game as well. The females are boobing out all over the place, and the male characters put steroided body builders to shame. I was a bit surprised at it, but it is so absurd you just have to laugh.
