Raging Justice Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET If you were a child during the ’90s then there’s an excellent chance you’ve played many a scrolling fighting game in your time. From the genesis of the genre with titles like Renegade and Double Dragon to more advanced examples like Streets of Rage 2 and Dungeons & Dragons, this style of brawler was incredibly popular with both arcade-goers and console owners alike; the simplistic premise – coupled with the opportunity to play cooperatively with another player – made this the go-to genre for many a gamer, at least until Street Fighter II came along and made the one-on-one fighter the de facto standard. To be honest, once that happened the scrolling fighter never really came back into fashion, and while the likes of Street Fighter, Tekken and King of Fighters have all endured over the years, franchises like Streets of Rage, Golden Axe and Final Fight have been forgotten by all but their keenest fans. Thankfully, the genre is enjoying something of a revival at the moment – we’ve already seen the excellent Wulverblade mix British history with skull-splitting gameplay.

Now MakinGames has released Raging Justice on Switch – perhaps the closest thing we’re ever going to get to a new Streets of Rage or Final Fight. The setup won’t be at all surprising to anyone who has played this kind of game before. A city is in peril thanks to the mysterious disappearance of the Mayor, and three righteous individuals are keen to restore justice and peace to the streets. The aptly-named Rick Justice is a veteran cop with an aggressive, no-nonsense fighting style, while Nikki Rage is a former soldier with a more precise and elegant technique. The third playable character is Ashley King, a teenager who looks to action movies for inspiration when it comes to his combat moves, and reminds us a lot of Skate / Sammy from Streets of Rage 2. All three characters have the same basic moves, but there are subtle differences which make them all feel unique. There’s a separate button for punch, kick, grab and jump; the first two can be combined to create combo attacks, and linking them with a jump produces two different aerial attacks.

GLOBAL LEADER BOARD.

Depending on the character, you can also hit either punch or kick to inflict damage on fallen enemies (no doubt inspired by Konami’s Vendetta / Crime Fighters 2, which designer Nic Makin cites as a personal favourite), while double-tapping left or right executes a short dash move that’s perfect for clearing your path of annoying enemies. You can also double-tap up or down to perform an evasive leap in either direction – handy for getting out of the way of incoming blows or projectiles. You can also lash out at enemies behind you by pushing the opposite direction to which your character is facing and pressing punch, and pressing punch and kick simultaneously performs a special attack that dishes out damage to all nearby enemies, at the cost of some of your precious health. The fact that Raging Justice has different buttons for punch and kick already gives it a little more depth than your typical side-scrolling fighter, but the ‘grab’ move takes some getting used to, especially if you’re a genre veteran. In Streets of Rage and Final Fight – as well as numerous other classic scrolling brawlers – to grapple with a foe you simply have to walk into them. Rugby 22 PS5

In Raging Justice, these grapples have to be initiated using the button; a second press of this button will perform your character’s throw move, while kick or punch will cause smaller amounts of damage which can be repeated until the grapple is broken. Rick’s throw move involves slamming the enemy into the floor, while Ashley executes a two-footed kick to the head. It’s Nikki who has perhaps the most useful throw, as she is able to hurl enemies over her head, causing them to clatter into other opponents standing nearby. While we would have preferred to see the old-fashioned ‘auto’ grapple in place here, having to execute such a move manually makes more sense when you see how crowded the screen becomes in Raging Justice; with so many sprites on-screen at once, an auto-grab would have made things annoying. This is a seriously busy game when it comes to enemies, almost to the point of becoming frustrating. However, you soon learn that controlling the crowd is all part of the challenge; if you rely too much on a single move then you’ll struggle.

WEAPONS.

A combination of flying kicks, dash attacks, throws and standard punches and kicks is needed to keep on top of things. Weapons are also of paramount importance as they’re capable of dealing out much higher levels of damage than your normal attacks. In fact, a baseball bat can effectively kill most enemies in a single swing – they even fly up the screen and slam into the wall, very much like they do in the aforementioned Vendetta. The caveat here is that enemies can use weapons against you, and weapons also break over time. If you’d rather keep opponents at a distance, you can throw weapons by pressing the kick button – a useful tactic when you consider how much damage it causes. Raging Justice gives you access to bottles, hammers, swords, knives and even guns, but perhaps the most deadly object in your arsenal isn’t something you can hold – it’s something you ride. One of the levels has you driving a tractor, while another gives you the chance to mow down enemies on a ride-on lawnmower. And yes, this is exactly as much fun as it sounds. Edge Of Eternity PS5

Raging Justice will divide people, or so it would seem. On the one hand fans of nostalgia who long for games of old will explode with joy, whereas those with no clue what Streets Of Rage is will be utterly baffled. This, however, is exactly the point. Developer MakinGames clearly has a love for a genre that has been forgotten and decided the modern day gaming landscape is ready for a comeback. This is where Raging Justice comes into play. Looking almost identical to those side-scrolling titles from the mid-90s, there’s a crimewave running through downtown (insert whatever city you’d like here because it doesn’t actually make a difference) and only a group of heroes can bring safety back to the streets. It’s stripped back, somewhat ridiculous and, really, a lot of fun. The first thing you’ll notice is that it looks very nice, even though it sticks to 2D environments with only a small space to fight within on every screen. Publisher Team17 has clearly realised that visual appeal is important and spent money where it counts. That may not seem too important for a game like this, but it instantly sets the mood, wears its inspirations on its sleeve and gives you enough rope to pretend this is the much-wanted sequel to Sega’s classic.

BONE CRUNCHING COMBAT.

It’s all very well put together. On paper, then, this is pretty straightforward: your main – and only – target really is to continually progress while kicking the hell out of every enemy that gets thrown at you. There’s more bite to it than that, however, because when you sit down to play it you soon realise it’s damn hard. Even on the default setting Raging Justice offers up a serious challenge and you’ve constantly got to be on your toes. It’s a smart decision in many ways because it adds more depth to an old template, but if you were hoping to just kick back with an easy ride you may get less out of this than you were expecting. Raging Justice doesn’t care about your lack of patience or gaming prowess. This curve has been thought out, however, because the way you approach combat is far more varied than those classic 90s games Raging Justice reminds you of. As well as the standard ‘light’, ‘heavy’, and ‘special attacks’, it’s the ability to arrest enemies where some true ingenuity arrives. Once you’ve stunned an opponent by beating them senseless, you have two options.

Finish them off and you’ll get an increase in points, but detaining them will increase your health. The latter is obviously extremely helpful to try and balance out the difficulty, but getting obsessed with your number tally will prove to be the end of you every now and then. You’ll take the risk wanting to add a few more zeroes to your score and then be killed. You’ll be mad. You’ll curse. You’ll try again. It’s a fiendishly addictive cycle. That’s not to say that MakinGames hasn’t gone too far with this. It will all depend on what you want or enjoy, but it’s only fair to say some boss fights are beyond frustrating because they’re so tough. The idea of shattering your controller will constantly force its way into your brain, but there’s the flipside to this – succeed, and the feeling of satisfaction will probably get you through the entire day. As ever there’s a few characters to choose from all of which will shift your experience slightly. It’s a case of opting for more power, more speed or a merging of the two, but it works. No one here is as iconic as the likes of Axel Stone or Blaze Fielding, but that could be a reflection of 2018 more than their design.

They tick the boxes, however, which is all they needed to do. It’s the gameplay here which is the draw, and that’s more than decent. Fighting is weighty and enemies go flying when you land a stiff blow, and it’s very good at presenting you with a rhythm that soon becomes somewhat hypnotic. Punch, kill, move forward, repeat. For some added sprinkles, you can also play the entire thing in co-op, plus there’s a ‘brawl’ mode which is basically similar to wave-based ‘horde’ modes seen in other games. With all this in mind, Raging Justice is very entertaining, even if it is relatively simple. To assume this is a blockbuster is ignoring the vibe it gives off even by looking at the screenshots, and if you need an extra selling point, the tone may get you through the door. For example, at one point, you have to knock out a bear. Raging Justice follows cops Rick Justice, Nikki Rage, and Ashley King as they attempt to save a kidnapped mayor, a tried and true story formula for beat ’em up games. The story is laughably written and predictable, but it’s not supposed to be much more than window dressing that gives these cops an excuse to beat up baddies. Elex II PS5
