Looking for good beat em up games

16 posts in this topic

Like the title said, I have really been craving some beat em up games like TMNT Turtles in Time or a Double Dragon style of game.

I played Final Fantasy A King's Tale and it kind of sparked wanting to play more games like that but it ended once I started to really get into it.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, I would enjoy new age style or retro style games either is fine. Fun plats would also be an awesome bonus!

Just In case others are interested here is the list of suggestions so far, thanks for all the ideas so far! I'm adding lots on my wish list, so when they go on sale I can pick them up.
 

  • Mother Russia bleeds
  • Bloody zombie
  • GodHand
  • Castle Crashers
  • Double Dragon Neon
  • 99vidas 
  • Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara
  • Dragons Crown
  • Phantom Breaker
  • Squareboy vs Bullies

Dragon crown I own, I have beat castle crashers and double dragon neon on other consoles such good games.
99vidas looks like a pretty cool game that plat grind though would be one to really go for

I've looked at that one before the easy plats games just end so fast I was looking for stuff like it with more content still thinking about grabbing this one though.

Knights of Valour is free to play and seems to be what you’re looking for. No

plat though, just a 100% game.

Shaq-Fu 2 was really really enjoyable for me, very underrated, I would advise you ignore critics and at least check out some gameplay on YouTube. It plays like a modern Streets of Rage in my opinion, with a bunch of powerups and a crazy ass absurd storyline. Though, Streets of Rage 4 is on the horizon and will likely shit all over Shaq, it's still worth picking up on a decent sale if you see it. Mind you, I got it for free so I'm pretty happy with the level of value I squeezed out of it.

Dungeon Punks is considered by many as trash, but I had a lot of fun with this title, no less than with Castle Crashers or Double Dragon Neon, and I'm not a fan of beat 'em up titles in general. It's more similiar to Golden Axe than TMNT/DD though. Platinum is buggy but obtainable when following a guide, however it's price is too high for a game like this. It was for free on November 2017 for PS+ subscribers, so if you have it in your library you could give it a chance.

Raging Justice - Not invested too much time into this yet but it reminds me of Final Fight. Very challenging.
