As you may or may not know, I'm a huge fan of beat 'em ups/brawlers. It's a love which comes from a youth misspent in arcades, resulting in Capcom's Final Fight being, arguably, my favourite video game of all-time. However, ask me which is the best beat 'em up of all time, and my Top Three definitely includes 2017's Fight'N Rage, now coming to PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch very soon.
Fight'N Rage is a fantasy brawler that understands every nuance that makes the heavyweights of the genre tick, and cranks the dial up on all of 'em. Pulling the player in with gorgeous pixel graphics, cool-looking characters and a blistering soundtrack, Fight'N Rage then surprises with a deep fighting system (which utilises combos, juggles, even parries) and exciting three-player co-op action, all of which combines to deliver an amazing arcade experience.
It doesn't end there. Fight'N Rage boasts double fistfuls of content. Three unique heroes with deep movesets, a training mode, unlockable skins, the option to play as a range of baddies, multiple difficulty levels, scanline/CRT video filters, a VS. mode, even a custom-designed speedrun option. There's plenty to keep you coming back for more, not to mention a branching storyline that includes multiple endings.
