    Beat Down: Fists of Redundance

    First and foremost; I must clear the air: I am an avid beat-'em-up fan in every sense of the word. Like, ever since I was a kid, "Streets of Rage" was my thing. Anyways, "Beat Down" is quite promis... Read Full Review

    This game has what it takes. It has good quality and gameplay. I dont know why people dont like this game. Cause is good

    I dont know why people think this game is whack because it is good to me. All you have to do is give it some time. And one of my favorite things is the Recruit System because you can mostly make your own gang. And when ... Read Full Review

    Beatdown should have been put down during it's design stages!!!

    What year is this?

    There isn't a lot to say about Beatdown Fists of Vengeance. It's a standard fighting game with a rather uninspired story. The initial idea of the game that you could read about in developer interviews and that made me go... Read Full Review

    No-brainer, guilty pleasure fighting.

    Beatdown didn't seem to get good reviews from most of the sites, which is a shame since I think it's one of the better games in the recent crop of 'multi-fighter' titles (a group which includes 'Urban Reign' , 'The Warri... Read Full Review

    Fun, fun, fun! Buy it, now it's cheap!

    This is more of an opinion than an in-depth review. I just wandered why this game keeps getting such poor reviews, because it's a hell of a lot of fun to play. Okay, it is a bit of a button masher and you basically run f... Read Full Review
