Fight ‘N Rage is a fantastic beat ‘em up. It has simple controls, good mechanics, and a lot of diversity to go along with it. Fans of this genre should not hesitate to pick this one up and even if you only play solo, you’ll still have a fun time with it.
Fight’N Rage arrives on Switch and immediately positions itself as one of the must-own action games on Nintendo’s console.
Sebagamesdev has put together a charming beat em up that takes bits and pieces of titles from the past. Tosses them together and out comes a fantastic gem of a brawler. Lots of ways to play, tons of stuff to do and some interesting design choices ensure that gamers will be back, again and again. Can't forget the fanservice, as there's a lot of it going on here. Outside of the occasional crash, I highly recommend this game, especially for those who find themselves playing past generation beat em' ups.
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.
As a modern throwback to Arcade classics, Fight 'N Rage is one of the very best in the business right now.
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.
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.
Beat 'em up fans looking for depth will not find it in Fight'N Rage but they will find simple and fun gameplay. And 2D boobs.
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.
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!
