Fighting game is heavy in violence, simple in plot.

Despite its relatively simple plot, this brawler excels in its combo and skill tree system that should be relatively easy for players (new and old) to pick up. Midnight Fight Express has preset and custom difficulty levels that make it easier for players to succeed, no matter your history with gaming, but experience with fighting games is helpful. The opening tutorial is a little too quick to fully grasp the reins on the controls, but the story offers you the ability to use a practice mode to continue honing your skills. The plot is fairly simple, and at times repetitive. You frequently find yourself moving into room after room of enemies without much plot expansion or character development. This is not, by any means, a game meant to encourage emotional maturity or growth in kids.

But these rooms are broken up by funny dialogue from your drone partner, and the game frequently parodies concepts of fighting games, making it an entertaining playthrough. It's a short, brutal, and relatively easy-to-navigate title, despite its flaws. While Midnight Fight Express doesn't necessarily bring something groundbreaking to the table, it succeeds in its ability to dish out satisfying combos, provide a stunning skill tree, and keep players' attention with a nonstop onslaught of enemies coming their way.
