You might not recall back to 1989 depending on your age but there was a game called River City Ransom. The title was an open-world action beat ‘em up title that game offline follows two high school students named Alex and Ryan. With Ryan’s girlfriend kidnapped by a person that goes by the name of Slick, the duo battle their way through the city featuring thugs and gangs as they attempt to save her. Years later we got a new installment to that franchise with River City Girls.
As you can imagine, the roles are reversed where two girls are making their way across the town to save the day. Just as before you’ll be beating up countless thugs, gathering weapons, upgrading skills and power-ups along the way. This is a game that goes back to the classic era of beat ‘em up titles where you can enjoy the game fully with a friend.
