I gave this game a chance, but it just didn't do it for me, and I have to be honest in my reviews.  Still, I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Interesting review. The game has done fairly well with other critics so this was definitely unexpected. Still, I enjoyed the review. I can't believe they have no pause button on offline mode...

I see and get everyone of your points and completely understand.
But I still had a total blast with this game none the less!

I'm still going to download this.  There just aren't enough beat-em-ups anymore, so until they create a Streets of Rage 4, I'll have to make do with what they shovel out.

Apparently, I'm a Nazi. I don't like the art style. Reddit had a seizure. Who knew it was my public duty to buy anything with grotesquely swollen breasts, or so many muscles that the grizzled old male characters would need to take steroids in order to slim down?

Isn't it enough that I still play Golden Axe?

Discovering that this game really isn't the greatest beat 'em up ever made wasn't a surprise, but seriously? It's really that bad? That's disappointing. I'd hoped that if nothing else, this game might have inspired a resurgence of sprite based brawlers. They may not be the most inspiring games on their own, but for something to occupy your thumbs when you're listening to the news, or talking to a friend, they're difficult to beat...

I too have been looking forward to this game. I'm not surprised by the Critic's experience & although I haven't played it yet I think my impressions would be similar.  

High definition graphics aren't better if you can't distinguish what's what. I'd rather take an 8-bit game with images that I could clearly see over many current gen games that many fans & critics drool over.  

With games like this collision detection is everything. It sounds like this game didn't really succeed with this.

Personally I think less is more. I love Double Dragon. You only have a couple enemies on screen at a time. The pace is slow & the collision detection is spot on. Honestly I didn't care for God of War, which the Critic & nearly everyone else loved. With God of War I was killing enemies so fast that I couldn't appreciate killing them.

What happens when you press the Playstation button? I would think that would pause your game even if the start button doesn't.

That's the case with most games, though there are some exceptions. Don't know about this one though!

In 360 games pressing the Xbox button during a cutscene usually pauses the game, so maybe it's the same case with this game.
