This game is an Hidden Gem!

River City Ransom's excellent amalgamation of action, adventure, beat-em-up and RPG game elements has won it many vocal supporters, yet it seems destined to remain in the shadow of big name brawlers like Double Dragon. River City offered a city to explore filled with rival gangs more than happy to smash things over your head if you happen into their territory. Between territories are neutral zones, filled with shops that carry life-giving junk food and high-priced moves that become absolutely necessary as you progress. It's these adventure game elements that make River City Ransom the thinking man's beat-em-up. Of course, you don't have to hit the mean streets of River City alone. With a friend you can tag-team your opponents. As a bonus, your stunned partner can double as a bludgeoning tool.


Hear the message from Sick, the meanest ganglord in town: “I hold your high school captive, and some of the students will have a trying moment, if they're ever fool enough to cross my path!” But you aren't afraid of anybody! Face the terrible gangs and neutralize their bosses, in order to deliver the city from terror!
