Une très bonne réussite dans un style assez peu exploité mais qui, comme le prouve Gekido, à tout de même de beaux jours devant lui. Dépassant Fighting Force dans tous les domaines, il offre un renouveau surprenant au style pourtant un peu dépassé du beat them’up.
All in all, despite Gekido's flaws, I actually had some fun with it. If you're looking for something that's going to blow you away or astonish you with its depth or revolutionary play mechanics -- then stay away from this title. However, if you're looking for a quality beat-'em-up that you can play by yourself or with a friend, then you might want to give this one a look.
It's such a shame that so much has been crammed into so little playing area because aside from the crowded screen problem Gekido has masses of gameplay appeal. If ever a beat-em-up could have done with a link-up mode... this is it. Even a widescreen TV mode would have helped.

People have trouble accepting the beat-em-up. While any die-hard gamer may have been burned out by them in the 16-bit era, the occasional flashback certainly does more good than harm. Gekido takes us right back to those days with a few annoying quirks, but makes for an otherwise enjoyable experience.
As a single-player fighting romp, Gekido is amusing, fun, and replayable. But with one or more friends, the game becomes a multiplayer glee-fest worthy of a spot in every socialite's game collection. With inviting gameplay and an abundance of hidden characters, Gekido is worthy of the acclaim given to Streets of Rage 2, Guardian Heroes, or Die Hard Arcade, provided you're a fan of the genre.
Gekido: Urban Fighters is een leuke (vooral met z'n vieren), ouderwetse beat'em up maar door de drukke graphics, de buttonslam-gameplay en de totale chaos moet ik er toch een aantal vraagtekens bij plaatsen.
The bottom line: this game is definitely only for a fan of the genre. It is all the best parts of great games put together in a not-so-fresh package.
