Video Game / Vendetta!

Go To

Crime Fighters 2 is a Beat 'em Up and the sequel to Crime Fighters, made in 1991 by Konami; it was released outside of Japan as Vendetta. The game has even more humor than the original and many more weapons.

Taking place in Dead End City, the Dead End Gang seeks to expand their territory. Only their rival gang, the Cobras, can stop them. The Cobras consist of ex-prize fighter Blood, former pro-wrestler Hawk, martial arts expert Boomer, ex-military convict Sledge, and Hawk's protegee, Kate. Kate gets kidnapped by the Dead End Gang who seeks to use her as bait in order to lure the Cobras into an inescapable trap and it's up to the Cobras themselves to rescue Kate and defeat the Dead End Gang once and for all.


This game has examples of:

  • Dominatrix: The female enemies.
  • Do Not Drop Your Weapon: Just like in Crime Fighters, enemies only drop their weapons upon death. You'll only lose a weapon after several uses.
  • Dual Boss:
    • The Rude Bros., who serve as the stage 3 bosses.
    • During the Boss Rush, you face two bosses at once.
  • Elevator Action Sequence
  • Extremity Extremist: Blood is a boxer, though he subverted this in some way.note

  • Faux Action Girl: Exaggerated. Despite being Hawk’s protege, Kate is not only the Damsel in Distress, she also never bothers to help out during the Boss Rush, instead just standing there and dancing.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: Joe Ohsugi, the mid-boss of stage 2. You're never told in the game that you'll fight this guy.
  • Hoax Hogan: The game has a Hulk Hogan expy on Hawk, a former pro-wrestler part of the Cobras, a gang that antagonize the Dead End Gang, who has to rescue his protegee Kate from them.
  • Knife Nut: One of the enemy types and one of the Rude Bros.
  • Macho Camp: The gay sailors and dogs in heat return, and once again, they're only in the Japanese version.
  • Only One Name: All of the Cobra Members and Faust, the final boss.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Your death scream your characters make. They certainly sound wimpy.
  • Sunglasses at Night: Blood, Joe Ohsugi and Faust.
  • Whip It Good: The female enemies. Also one of the weapons.
  • Wild Hair: Faust.
  • You Get Knocked Down, You Get Back Up Again:
    • Averted, knocked down enemies can be attacked. The same can apply to you, though.
    • Averted even more by you being able to kick the enemies while knocked down on your back. No help for your when lying on your belly, though.
    • Some of the enemies (Buzzsaw Bravado, the shotgun mook etc.) can also attack you while prone or when getting up.

How well does it match the trope?
