IGN: The Combatribes Review

Technos truly was the king of the brawler genre in the 8-bit era, as it's indisputable that some of the company's efforts from that age have gone on to become true classics -- Double Dragon and River City Ransom chief among them. This attempt by the developer to transition its success into the SNES age just fell flat, though, as Capcom's Final Fight and SEGA's Streets of Rage became the new flagships for the beat-'em-up genre moving into the '90s. Since both of those games (and several of their sequels) are already available here on the Virtual Console, along with those 8-bit Technos classics, there are just way too many better brawler options to choose from to waste your money on this long-forgotten relic. Stay away, and spend your eight bucks elsewhere.
