If you compare Brawl Brothers with some of the other old brawlers already on sale in the Wii Shop (like Sega's Streets of Rage 2), then it still isn't the most sensational genre option. But it is a big step-up from its own direct predecessor, and there are enough improvements made here that anyone looking for a fresh fighting fix could invest eight bucks for this Brawl and not feel at all bad about it.
Brawl Brothers is a noticeable improvement over Rival Turf!, but it's still not good enough to match up to the best beat 'em ups around. It plays quite a bit better and has some more variety in terms of the stages and playable characters, but all the little annoyances stack up in the end to slightly drag down what would otherwise be a good alternative to the likes of Final Fight and Streets of Rage.
Brawl Brothers is the shallow experience that you expect from this type of arcade experience. You've been here before and fought gang members that look oddly similar to what is on display in this game. Having said that, I did have fun speeding through the various levels. This is especially fun with a second-player, though not enough to warrant the eight dollar asking price. Brawl Brothers is neither great nor terrible, it's just another middling game in a genre known for its mediocrity.
