A 2009 CGR Must Buy! Classic Game Room HD reviews TOKYO BEAT DOWN for the Nintendo DS. This Tokyo Beat Down review has gameplay footage of Tokyo Beat Down side scrolling beat 'em up from Atlus for the Nintendo DS. Do you like Streets of Rage and Lethal Weapon? BUY THIS GAME. Play the Beast Cops and clean up the streets of Tokyo from a devious criminal plot! Lewis Cannon is the best video game character since Dig Dug. Sporting an early 90's mullet, cigarettes and bad attitude, this game packs laugh after laugh and has a very clever and entertaining plot. In the style of early 90's side scrolling beat em ups, Tokyo Beat Down delivers solid gameplay, hysterical one liners and memorable characters (Plot Progressing Officer!). CGR thinks this is the "What's Up, Tiger Lily" of videog games. It feels like an old school coin-op 2D side scroller but with a reworked English translation to make it hysterical. I don't think that's quite the case, but it feels like it, and it feels good. You can't go wrong with this game. Sarcasm, dry humor, intelligent writing and straight up action packed gameplay. Tokyo Beat Down is one of the best games on the Nintendo DS and an instant classic. A must have. Classic Game Room approved. Mullets, cops, pimp tunes and power up hamburgers. Love it!
