This is one of the better 2D games that I have played recently. Beside the fact that the "graphics" could be a bit more detailed and better, everything is nice. Some very cool enemies (whose bodies could get an improvement) arrive sometimes, but only sometimes. The game's name does really describe the game in the best possible way. However, graphics don't make the game, but bad graphics ruin the experience and that is the reason why my rating is lower than expected.
The Asskickers is an arcade game where your only objective is to kill your enemies. The game has a couple of phases, each one is more difficult than the previous what really makes the game challenging. The graphics are the only bad point on the game, because it have a very bad quality. The soundtrack is something like a 8-bit song, but is very good. The gameplay is very good and the controls are even better making the game more easy to play. I fully recommend this game for who wants to play a fun game.
The Asskickers is a beat 'em arcade game tribute in which you need to beat up the corrupt people! The game is in 2D. so it does not have the best graphics out there, but it fits so well for its art style. The soundtrack is great, making the game really intense. The gameplay is similar to the old beat 'em arcade games, so it's great for those who are used to it. The story behind the game is awesome, it is about three guys whose objective is to defeat the political corrupt and the elite for a better world to live. Overall the game is great and hilarious, so this is why I recommend it to everybody, since all can have a great time playing it!
The Asskickers is a 2D action beat'em up. It reminds me the game I consider the king of the genre: Double Dragon: but if Double Dragon Neon, the modern version of the classic one, wasn't so exciting, The Asskickers is a real delight for all the players that likes the genre, the old ones as well as the younger ones. I have liked the game so much that I have played it nearly without a pause as soon as I finished it through single player mode. It's intense, visually stunning and offers real different situations where you will fight against a huge variety of foes. In addition The Asskickers has a very good level design and a lot of humor: this is the real core of the game: fight with fun! Oh, and it has also a local coop mode that I hope I will try in a very short while. Make you a favor: if you like the genre, buy this game right now!
