Beat Down: Fists of Vengeance review

  • Gloriously unabashed violence
  • The interesting recruitment scheme
  • Tranny fights!
  • Gritty locales lacking polish
  • Dialogue dripping with cheese
  • One-on-one multiplayer

Ultimately, Beat Down isn’t so much horribly broken as just plain malnourished. On paper, it seems slightly more interesting than your average crime-ridden beat ‘em up, but its handful of decent ideas are marred by its lack of refinement and need of more development time. As a result, the game’s interesting concepts falter into a more irritating experience.
