I’ve been waiting a long time for a decent Mighty Morphin Power Rangers game. You’d think the property would be ripe for a good beat’em up. 5 heroes (6 if you include Tommy) fighting a bunch of generic bad guys, eventually fighting a bigger more elaborate bad guy, then a grander battle with said bad guy. Doesn’t that sound like every beat’em up ever made? It’s not for a lack of trying though, through many releases on the SNES and Genesis, us 90’s kids got a taste of what a good Power Rangers game could be. Enter 2017 and Bamtang indulges us with a multicolored nostalgia treat. It’s unfortunate that it tastes more like sour candy – not everyone likes it, but those who do will find it enjoyable.
