    Finally, a homage to good old shoot-em-up ups / beat em ups

    Graphics: Game looks pretty sweet. Nice explosions, models, and overall feel, this is a game that won't likely depreciate graphically as time goes on due to its style. Gameplay: I played with my buddy for about 3 hours, ... Read Full Review

    I'm very surprised.

    I got it yesterday and must say I'm very surprised at how good it is and for $19.99 at that. The mix of side scrolling shooting and melee fighting is so cool and how the game makes you use both (Some enemies can only be ... Read Full Review

    Excellent time spender with friend.

    These type of games are better spent with a friend than alone in my opinion. I played by myself and never got into it. However, once I gave this game another try with a friend, we had so much time we ended up playing for... Read Full Review

    Another great game to see the PS2 out the door.

    I really like this game. It's got good graphics, and great gameplay. Those two things make this game worth playing. It has an old school sensibility mixed with new school ideas. Gameplay: It's a mixture of beat-em-up and... Read Full Review

    Lights, Camera, Action!!

    Legion of a dying breed. It seems like its been light years since a good co-op game around in the 2000-2007era of gaming.What you get from Red Star is a game in the mold of Final Fight/Streets of Rage 2 mixed with a bit ... Read Full Review

    In Soviet Russia, Video Games Play YOU

    I'm gonna tell you right off the bat, the story for this video game is completely irrelevant. If you haven't heard of the comic book it's based on, or even if you have, you're not going to bother with pre- and post-level... Read Full Review

    Hack n Slash and Shooter ... what more can be said other than it's worth the price of admission.

    To start, this game was nearly cancelled and thankfully it made it!, otherwise ya'll would of missed out on such a great game. This game has it all, from Melee combat (hack n slash) to shooter and the action just keeps ... Read Full Review
