Smash through hordes of enemies in a stylish beat'em up, where getting in the way of two cheeky teenagers is really not a good idea.

River City Girls is like a sweet treat of the beat 'em up standard and does not overstay its welcome.

We had fun with River City Girls, almost as much as with the old titles of the franchise and expecially in coop mode, but we're not sure purists will appreciate some of the new ideas. It's a pity that the game is a little bit pricey, too.

Old school game in terms of graphics and mechanics, but that has adapted very well to the new times, bringing freshness to the genre with its humor and its rpg touches.

I wanted to love River City Girls. A modern side scrolling beat 'em up, from a proven developer like WayForward, with bright, bold visuals, and two kick-ass heroines should have been great. Instead, thanks to way too much repetitive grinding, River City Girls is a bit boring. Something I never thought I'd say about a game that has high school children hitting zombie cheerleaders with wrenches.

It would be a lie to say River City Girls is not a good game. This game is full of charm and style, it is really fun to play and the high production values clearly show themselves. But the problem is that it misses some quality of life features to solve many of the recurring flaws in most of beat'em up games (like keys being set to perform multiple commands), and those same flaws have lowered the quality of this game's overall experience as well

It’s fantastic to have a couch co-op game that takes all of the classic elements of beat-’em-ups and gives them an upgrade that feels modern and fresh.

If you’ve got a friend and some free time, I think there’s a lot of enjoyment to be had here with River City Girls, and the amazing art and music certainly enhance that.

I hope WayForward gets to follow this game up so they can tweak their gameplay a bit and explore their take on the world of River City a bit more.
