These beatings are immensely fun. Using a control scheme that EAcalls "the black hand,"players use the right analog stick like a pair of fists, pulling off hooks, uppercuts and lightning-fast jabs with simple flicks and rolls. Getting in close lets you grab your enemies, at which point you can smack them around, slam them against a wall, or threaten to shove them over a ledge. And if they've outlived their usefulness or just need some extra motivation, you can strangle them and feel their fading pulse through the controller's rumble motor. Or you can just shoot them. Whatever works for you.
