If everything I just said didn’t convince you, then maybe the coveted Thumb Culture Platinum essentials award will. Fight’N Rage deserves this award, as it is a masterpiece of a modern beat’em up stuffed with all sorts of retro-nostalgia, plus this port from the original PC version is outstanding. I know it won’t be coming off my switch any time soon. What are you waiting for? Go get it on the Nintendo Switch eShop!

Fight'N Rage easily deserves a spot alongside Streets of Rage, Double Dragon, and Final Fight, offering extremely satisfying action, sharp foes, deep movesets, solid music, and delightful punches.

Fight'N Rage has positioned its self as one of the must-own games for the Nintendo Switch. Beating up people never felt so much fun, either alone or by bringing a friend or computer controller character. If you're a fan of arcade beat em ups, fast and frantic combat, and tight controls, then Fight'N Rage is for you.

Despite lacking online multiplayer and giving players a lot of different ways to do the same thing, it's impossible to not find value in Fight'N Rage. There is enough diversity between paths to warrant at least a couple cycles and gameplay is complicated to the point of giving you something to work towards. It is the fight beat'em up in a while that I felt like I could play for 10+ hours and not get bored and that is an impressive feat at an extremely fair price.

Great on PC and great on consoles. It is a port from PC without changes, but the original work does not need either. A classic beat'em up with a modern and exquisite playability, a bizarre artistic design, and much content to spend hours perfecting our mastery and remembering those wonderful golden years of the brawler genre and the arcades. Essential.

I’m a big fan of Fight’N Rage. Of course, I’ve been a big fan of beat ’em ups for a long time now, but this game does so much right that I have no problem recommending it to someone that isn’t too familiar with the genre.

Fight N' Rage is a great addition to the beat'em up genre. Fast paced and over the top, it's sure to appeal to new gamers while reaching old school gamers who grew up on Streets of Rage and Final Fight.

Fight'N Rage delivers an entertaining experience that strongly reminds us of golden age of Beat'em Up and games like Street of Rage. If you have played classic Beat'em up games, playing Fight'N Rage feels nostalgic. Gameplay is simple yet deep and challenging, and because of different paths and decisions that players encounter throughout the game, there are more than 50 endings. Without a doubt, Fight'N Rage is one of the best Indie games of 2019 that is super entertaining to play...

A surprisingly deep and wholly satisfying side-scrolling brawler, Fight'N Rage is massively enjoyable genre effort that stands shoulder to shoulder with its classic counterparts.

Fight'N Rage borrows heavily from classics like Streets of Rage and Final Fight, but its combat does a great job of building on the basics without making things too complex.

Fight'N Rage may be short but that doesn't stand in its way of presenting itself as a fitting tribute to the golden age of arcade beat'em up games. Easy to learn but difficult to master, with plenty of content to unblock, multiple levels, marvelous looks and soundtrack, this is just what the doctor ordered for people who want to enjoy some good old classic-style beat'em up play.

Altogether, Fight'N Rage is a superb effort. Very few throwbacks are fit to hold a candle to the classics of yesteryear, but this one admirably stands alongside. Every subsystem and game mechanic works wonderfully. The three playable characters are incredibly diverse and fun to play, while still retaining a simplistic three-button control setup. The multiple difficulties represent a challenge that grows with the player's skill. Even on the hardest setting, enemy stats aren't boosted to absurd levels, making every battle a slog. The ambitious routing system works quite well, giving every playthrough something new to look forward to.

But the good far, far outweighs the bad in Fight’N Rage. It really is one of the best side-scrolling beat ’em ups currently available.

Fight'N Rage is a 16-bit-styled beat-'em-up that expands on the genre's strengths but also keeps a couple of its weaknesses.

A gloriously amateur game that puts to shame all the constraints and compromises of so-called professional development.

If you can ignore some of its questionable elements, Fight'N Rage delivers one of the most mechanically satisfying brawlers out there. It feels responsive and fast, opponents’ attacks are well telegraphed that make encounters fair, and the parry mechanic adds an additional layer of complexity.

Fight'N Rage is a lot of fun, and will definitely tickle the nostalgia in games like me that grew up on arcade style beat 'em up games like Streets of Rage, Final Fight, Double Dragon, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and more. The visuals and music as spot-on, and the branching paths with multiple endings and unlockables provide some pretty solid replay value. Unfortunately the combat itself is still a bit too shallow for my liking, some of the stages can feel a bit cheap / frustrating as well. Brawler fans owe it to themselves to give this one a try.

Fight'N Rage reminds you of a classic '90s arcade game, though the controls don't hold up. Otherwise, with nostalgic graphics and music, it'd be a great game.
