Many fans of Nintendo did forget one of it’s best games of all times. This was the GTA (Grand Theft Auto) of 1989, best two player co-op game of it’s time, and if you have beef with the other player, duke it out on the streets as you can fight each other. Bats, garbage cans, tires, boxes, brass knuckles, you name it, you can use it as a weapon. What other game in 1989 you can pick up a body, and use it as a weapon, and toss it to another player.
The story go’s, the main characters, Alex and Ryan are high schoolers, beating their way from the streets of Cross Town H.S. to River City to rescue Ryan’s girlfriend, Cyndi. They must defeat the gangs of Slick, who has Cyndi on River City H.S. roof top. You collect money as you defeat a gang member, spend the money at local stores to power up your speed, attack power, etc. But take caution, as each gang members has a different attack. look for the different color shirts.
You can maybe find this wonderful title on Ebay, but it’s very rare. RCR was re released on the Nintendo Wii’s Virtual Console for 500 Wii points.
