This should be in every arcade in America
9 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This game wasn't in my arcade, so I had to download it off of the internet and play it with MAME. Although this isn't Capcom's first side-scrolling beat-em-up game (Final Fight in 1989), it is definitely their best, with a Q-Surround sound system and excellent digitized graphics. A player can kill the enemy with methods ranging from a simple knockout to a gruesome slaughter with a battle axe, and plenty of gun action in there as well. Everything about this game is interactive. Play as bloodthirsty Frank Castle or cool, collected Nick Fury (with the cigar and the eyepatch) and prepare for level after level of carnage.

Also, this game has one of the most dramatic continue screens that I have ever seen. For those of you who haven't played it, I won't spoil it for you, but for those who have, you know what I'm talking about.

In conclusion, play this game by whatever means necessary, and enjoy sweet, sweet revenge at a cost of only 25 cents.
