A charming homage to Streets Of Rage and other scrolling beat 'em-ups, but it doesn't overcome the genre's limitations and manages to add a few of its own.

There's so much wrong with Raging Justice that it's easy to forget that it's not completely unbearable. It's an average romp through arcade-like levels and while the key gimmick doesn't hit a home run, it at least is fitting with the theme. That said, this does sadly come off as a cheap imitator that misses the mark more often than not, and as I eluded to earlier, that hurts for me to say.

Aside from the disappointing lack of playable characters, Raging Justice is an impressive blast from the past that puts a forgotten style of fighting game on center stage and shows why it's still fun all these years later. It's a fighting game you'll love.

There's a lot of fun to be had on the first playthrough, but the game simply doesn't offer enough content or complexity to keep my attention. It's classic art-style and gameplay are a tribute to a bygone era, but there is no excuse for the lack of content present in a title being ported to current gen consoles in 2018.

Raging Justice is a game that is defined by its screenshots. One look and I knew exactly what I was getting. I wish there was more, I wish it was more fun, but at the end of the day it just felt too limited by its inspirations to stand out and be memorable.

Erring on just the right side of trashy, Raging Justice doesn't break any significant new ground for the side-scrolling brawler but it succeeds as an entertaining effort all the same.

Raging Justice isn't going to win any awards for originality or narrative depth, but it succeeds in picking up the often neglected scrolling fighter, dusting it off and sending it out with a fresh pair of clothes and some new ideas. The extra buttons are put to good use, giving you a wide array of offensive options when you're in the thick of things, and the ability to arrest enemies adds a layer of strategy to the otherwise mindless action. When played solo the game is perhaps a little too unforgiving to recommend to everyone, but when you rope in a second player it becomes one of the most enjoyable multiplayer experiences on Switch; working together to clean up the streets is fun, but you won't be able to resist occasionally stabbing your ally in the back, just for old time's sake.

Raging Justice is ridiculous fun which is, at its heart, just an updated version of Streets Of Rage. It's dumb, entertaining and well made, even if it can be horrifically hard.
