Tokyo Beat Down is a Fighting game available on the DS. It can be played in Thirdperson Singleplayer modes.
Tokyo Beat Down is a Fighting game. Fighting games revolve around the interaction of two or more characters in some form of physical combat. Players learn to control characters through either memorisation of button combinations to access more advance moves, or by their reactions and accurate timing.
Tokyo Beat Down can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.
Tokyo Beat Down can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

Tokyo Beat Down is a big pulsating pun, but happily one with a big heart. Somehow this little game gave me the warm fuzzies, despite derivative brawling game play straight out of the 80's.
Beat 'em ups shouldn't have a soul. The old-school elements that make up such a videogame staple are simple, satisfying and rote. The side-scrolling view, enemies that blink away after being defeated and burgers that restore you to full health are gloriously arcade and archaic in origin and application.
