If you grew up in, or through the 90s, this game is gonna speak to you. If you ever went to a Timezone lockout party with an over-privileged friend, then you'll love it. Newcomers, meet knock off Turtkes by way of kung-fu-having toads who like to battle in, Battletoads.
It's a nostalgia trip, to be sure, but beneath the Saturday morning cartoon sheen exists a pretty fun game. Here's an excerpt from our review:
You have a side-scrolling beat ‘em up setup: Imagine Streets of Rage, Final Fight, Double Dragon, Ninja Turtles -- any arcade game from the 90s, really, and you know what you’re gonna get. Three player co-op is on offer from the couch, because there are three toads. Each has unique attacks, but on the overall, not one does one better than the other (meaning you won’t need to worry about who can do what), because all moves across all three toads get you through the game. There are collectibles, challenges and Easter Eggs riddled throughout. So, what this means is anyone not in this for the nostalgia trip, or a challenge (because it’s actually hard on the top setting) might not be into it, but that’s okay. Not every game is for everyone. So why bother if you’re outside that 90s clique?Click here for our full Battletoads review.
