River City Ransom: Underground was worth the wait, and hopefully we don't have to wait nearly three decades for the next one. The look, feel, and humor of the original is here with a new in-depth fighting system that feels fresh yet familiar while being deeper than basically every other game in the genre.

A disgrace revival to River City Ransom, for a game that could have been a great throwback to the days of an NES game, instead we get a long, dull mess, that tells a bad story.

Goomba Stomp

Great sprite work and occasionally engaging combat, but horrible world design, impenetrable story telling, and questionable mechanics dampen what could have been a good brawler. Barely better with other players.
