For $15, you can snag this brawler that would hopefully wipe the memory of Double Dragon II.
This 2D brawler has the potential to be something sharp. Nifty action RPG elements add a burst of energy to the offense, and with three-players, the screen becomes quite hectic. However, the basic X button combo contains no knockback or knock down attack. That means players can mash the X button, locking enemies in a three-hit cycle until they die. Foes have no escape. Bosses break that mold, but most of the game is, as the genre dictates, a rumble with lesser foes who exist to be hit. Variations on the attacks with Y & B can change up the assault (and create a knock down), but why bother when it is so simple to stand and melee? The added benefit of leveling, gold farming, and multiplayer will probably appease quite a few people. However, as a beat-em-up, it languishes in mediocrity.
