Exclusive Raid 2 8-bit game


With a deceptively simple plot and some crowd-rousingly well-staged fight scenes, The Raid cemented its place in our list of favourite action films ever.

The three words 'The Raid 2' were therefore met with a universal round of applause in the ShortList office and just ahead of this week's stellar issue, featuring lead star Iko Uwais, we have a rather exciting treat for you.

We are giving you the first chance to play an 8-bit game that allows you to fight your way through a surprisingly extensive Raid 2 universe.

And yes, there is a leaderboard so your week is essentially ruined.
