Radical Review

Radical Heroes: Crimson City Crisis is a fun take on everything retro. The game is colorful and filled with un-lockable content such as characters, locations, skills, and weapons.

 

This review is based on the following 6 factors. You can find our review widget with scores at the bottom of the page.

 

Gameplay

The gameplay starts off fun. Its cool for a little while, but becomes repetitive pretty fast.

 

Sound

The game music is very fitting of the game, and I think it helped with the retro feel. The voice in the game sounds like its strait out of a 80’s toy commercial.

 

Un-lockables

Unlocking abilities and items is a big plus that can drive you to play more. The abilities and weapons are all pretty cool.

 

Action

The games fighting mechanics work smoothly. Unfortunately due to the games repetitive nature, it gets old fast as well.

 

Story

The game does provide a little bit of story, but its not that impressive.

 

Art

The major selling point of this game is its awesome retro style of pixel art. The 3D graphics seem to pop out of the screen at you.

 

Overall Summary

While my review rating isn’t that high, I feel that I should note that this game is still in early access. The retro-like pixel art makes this game really stand out. I think if the developers add a little more complexity the game could out grow the repetitiveness that seems to be its downfall.
