A third-person perspective action game with beat ’em up elements, created by Bandai Namco Entertainment , based on Crows, a popular Japanese manga that tells a story of a group of high-school delinquents.
The plot of the game rather faithfully recreates the events known from the comic and the movies based on it. We assume the role of Harumichi Bouya, who is transferred to an infamous high-school - the Suzuran All-Boys, infested by a gang of young bandits. As the city is filled with other, competing gangs, the metropolis becomes an arena of relentless struggle for power and position in criminal structures. When it comes to mechanics, Crows: Burning Edge is somewhat similar to the Yakuza series, marrying action elements with an adventure game plot. The main focus was placed on spectacular combat sequences, which earn us respect and build our prestige in the school society.
