Bringing the beat-em-up back to the limelight, Rockstar's love letter to the classic late-'70s film represents its most singularly cohesive and fully-realized vision to date. With its retro-informed, reinvented brawling gameplay and expansive (but never overwhelming) levels, this is open-world done right. We can dig it.

Roger Hill, who plays Cyrus in the film, sued Take-Two Interactive for $250,000 for using his voice and likeness.
