River City Ransom: Underground reviews and comments

I can Not deny that I called much attention to the trailer and images, and even reading some negative reviews, I decided to buy it. We Go for the good... Beat em up with different characters, each with their special abilities and moves, fights against many enemies, final bosses, objects to use in fights. The bad... The command configuration is almost impossible, the video game forces you to use the defaults and I had to manually edit a game file to be able to play two: one with joystick, the other with keyboard and changing the buttons (here is where the game does not let you change the CONTR Oles if more than one player. Almost everything that has to do with user interface, menus, etc, are very unfriendly and it looks like a puzzle using the same. Regarding the gameplay... The clues you get for the story mode are very precarious, I invite you to play without seeing a guide, there are really times you have no idea what is next. Not to mention the movements that one buys, there is no description of the same and also how to make them part of your combo. Maybe for other players who want to explore everything and to discover the mechanics can become interesting. For my part I see that there are many locals of different types in the streets, with very varied products, but without an apparent reason to go to buy them, as as I said before, there are no clues of anything. You Can buy cats, for what? I do not know.. They Should improve the UX, and at least give more clues on how to continue the story and what things can be bought and for. Basically, more clues, more tips!!!

Recurdos and more memories of the time of the NES, for many is an excellent reminder of what we were like gamers. THE GOOD THING: 1. Continuation of one of the best games I have played in the NES and that in a way explains better what happened and how it ended. 2. Decent Graphics with Sprite enhancements and 8-bit visual mode with colorful scenarios and characters. 3. Basic level Sibida System that depends on the character you choose. 4. Variety of characters to choose each with their custom combat style. 5. Classic Characters available and you will see the passage of time by the way... 6. Good soundtrack that meets the intension according to scenes. 7. Of The few games that I felt like taking the cards and form badge that is great. 8. Multiplay Mode for up to 4 friends in Coop and Arena match. THE BAD: 1. It Is Still a game in which it does not have one &% $ · idea what to do, or what's next in the mission. 2. The map is confusing showing up in the West when you were straight to the east and stuff like that. 3. I Expected better system to raise levels because it is standard and you can not choose to upload. 4. The controls have occasionally bugs such as entering a second character controlled with the keyboard (works fatal) to give OK in the command of Xbox 360, this character is uncontrollable and S emueve only down. CONCLUSION: As A fan of the Kunio game series I recommend it blindly and say it is a masterpiece of 8bits, nostalgia 100% and quite rewarding when playing with friends. It'S A game that should be in the library of any old-guard gamer and 8-bit lovers. The system of controls is fixed restarting the PC (not if it is my problem or something generic) and despite that bug I say that if you buy in sales ddiste with a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
