An outstanding beat 'em up which suffers on a few minor accounts but is still most certainly worth checking out.
While Brawl Brothers is an obvious Final Fight knock-off its a good one. If it had a greater variety of enemies, it might well have taken out the current 16-bit beat-em-up champ, Streets of Rage 2. Video vigilantes who've polished off other games should bring Brawl Brothers into their family.
De graphics van Brawl Brothers zijn uitstekend. Ze halen bijna de kwaliteit van de graphics van de arcadegames van 1993. De gameplay mag dan iets minder zijn, het is nog steeds een prima spel.
There are so many beat-'em-ups littering the software shelves these days it's difficult to know which ones are worth buying. Rushing Beat Run is challenging, looks good and sounds great - it gets a thumb up from me!
Spielerisch wuseln die Brawl Brothers zwar im oberen Drittel der Prügelwertungsskala, für eine Aufstieg in die High-End-Riege fehlt jedoch die nötige Abwechslung. Die Gegnertypen wiederholen sich ständig, der Level-Aufbau auf Dauer zu eintönig, um zu motivieren. Von den Schlägen reicht meist einer aus, um den Finsterlingen zu entgehen.
Video Game Den
All in all, Rushing Beat Ran has a nice variety of stages and enemies and it really stands out of the beat'em up crowd. I personally prefer the Japanese version, the maze-like stages from the American version really slows down the pace of the game. But the Japanese version is unlockable from the American version, so it may end up being a better choice as you actually end up with two games in one.

Two can play at once, which can be fun. The graphics are colourful and nicely designed, with some nifty backgrounds. There are attempts to break up the gameplay a bit - notably things like mines on the ground, holes in the floor and
that gun you can pick up. In fact, as beat-
'em-ups go this is a pretty good one. Overall verdict: Well, it's another scrolling
beat-'em-up, innit? It looks a bit
smarter than most, but is just as
boring as these things always are,
and can only be recommended to
The Video Game Critic
Brawl Brothers would have made a very good Final Fight clone, but whenever the designers tried to get creative they just shot themselves in the foot.
