Review: Warriors Street Brawl | GamesAreEvil

GrE writes, "Confession time… I have never seen "The Warriors" movie. I don't think that is a revokable offense to my nerd street cred, but it bears mentioning. That being said, this game did in fact give me the urge to seek out and watch it. Unfortunately, that is probably the most positive thing I can say about the game. There is no question that this game borrows HEAVILY from games like Final Fight and Streets of Rage.

as a huge warriors fan incredibly dissapointed why couldnt they just remake the warriors game on the ps2and xbox for the ps3 and 360 put it in hd add new moves throw in some online and the movie in a second disc or something or at least re release that armies of the night mini game on psn/xbl and upscale it to hd

This is an abuse of an otherwise promising license

Really, who decided that The Warriors, a cult 70s movie, really needed to become a video game license?

Rockstar in 2005 who made an amazing game! This is just an example of a movie studio throwing a limited budget at a game developer and asking them to get to work on the "cash cow that is video games"....

I dunno. Beat 'em ups can totally work - check out Unbound Saga on PSP.

but that is PSP, not a REAL console.

chekout the upcoming kunio-kun online game (think River City Ransom) on youtube... I think this can be fun.

Abuse? nah. It's just a game trying to be more than it is.
