It's two months since we - and, today, we finally had the opportunity to play the free-roaming street brawler for ourselves.
Beat-'em-ups that provide players with the autonomy to wander around 3D environments have, traditionally, been a disaster. Whether it's the (now long-forgotten) PS2 fist-fest The Bouncer or the more recent Beat Down: Fists of Vengeance, it's a genre that has always sounded like a good idea in theory but left a lot to be desired in practice.
