Streets of Rage 4 doesn't do much to advance the formula of classic beat 'em ups and that's what makes it great. The game can be completed in roughly three hours, which is just enough for this type of game. Unlocking all the Easter eggs is a nice way to add to the nostalgia fix. Playing through with each character offers a slightly different game experience, but the real joy comes from playing these types of games with friends. Streets of Rage 4 is a must play for fans of retro beat 'em ups.

Nov 26, 2019

Romancing SaGa 3 is a game that is easier to respect for some of its design choices that were better realized in some later games than simply for being fun.

GYLT introduces a new IP to a new system with some world building elements that hearken back to some of Tequila Works' previous titles, which isn't a bad thing at all.
