River City Girls

released on Sep 04, 2019

River City Girls stars Kyoko and Misako, two street-tough high-schoolers who must fight their way through the six regions of River City to rescue their kidnapped boyfriends, series mainstays Kunio and Riki. Along the way, they'll utilize an arsenal of combos, counters, throws, and special attacks; battle an assortment of enemies; accept numerous side quests; level up with experience points; interact with NPCs (including guest stars from past River City games); and shop for a variety of items, food, and gear to boost stats and unlock new abilities. The girls can even wield weapons and recruit defeated foes to join them in combat!

This game looks nice and has good music, and the writing is generally amusing. It's also super difficult if you play by yourself.

Decent game. Great pixel art, decent OST, and the gameplay bangs to an extent. I think that if there were more in game incentives to make the player try new moves and experiment with different combos it would enhance the whole experience tenfold, since earlygame unlocking new moves was exciting with trying to lab out cool combos, but by lategame I was mostly just spamming the one combo I know that worked to defeat most encounters, which gets kinda boring. Theres a dab move though, so this game is turbo based on that basis alone. The writing and the voice acting delivery of said writing was kinda cringe to me personally but idk other people might like it. I do think it is a mild bit bizarre for the game to not have any japanese voices when the game is a spinoff of a predominantly japanese exclusive game series, but eh it probably wasn't really in the budget, plus who tf is making new kunio kun games in the year of our lord 2019 anyways. all in all, a decent beat em up but mans still likes castle crashers and streets of rage 4 more than this

Not much more to say than its a shitty beat em up. Maybe if you played this before Streets of Rage 4 or TMNT you could enjoy it. But its just clunky, awkward and annoying to play, and the writing is Forspoken tier embarassing.
As much as I appreciate Wayforward's art team, they really suck at making video games. Even Shantae and the Pirate's Curse peaked with above average, and Half Genie Hero was so short it was practically a demo. They just can't make a game that "feels" good to play. They put all this work into beautiful sprites and hand drawn art and make a crappy C-tier Unity beat em up with them.
I admit the cutscene they got 5 year olds to voice act was funny. If this game had an easy mode, this could be a fun game to play with your kid. Alas, it's tough for all the wrong reasons. Like annoying endlag, bad hitboxes, long hitstun and gimmicky boss fights.

me when im in a mid beat em up competition and my opponent is river city girls (they have been the undefeated champion since 2019)

Divertido e de certa forma ate relaxante. É dinâmico e bem solido, o combate é legal e as musicas dão uma boa apetecida na gameplay, deixando ela bem gostosinha
