Car Battler Joe – Second Opinion

Over the last two years I have seen this game come up several times on the Internet categorized as a surprise hit or as the true definition of a sleeper. Since I'm always eager to investigate rumors that may lead me to my next obscure favorite, I decided to take all this enthusiasm to heart and buy a copy of Car Battler Joe to see what all the buzz was about. After playing through the entire game, I don't see it.

Car Battler Joe

Game Description: As the son of a famous car battler, Joe Todoroki has all the ambition and natural ability to become a master of mechanical mayhem. Early on, Joe may not have much experience or firepower, but gains both as he takes on new jobs and gussies up his garage. Once your preparations are complete you can accept one of several jobs posted at a local shop. The real action begins when moving from town to town. The motorized melees takes place on a rotating plane that showcases the processing prowess of the Game Boy Advance. Out in the wastelands, you will encounter gun-toting enemies who will test the durability and firepower of your ride.

Car Battler Joe – Review

A player can never know for sure if they will like the title until they're playing it. There's joy in knowing money was well spent on a good game and inversely, disappointment in having wasted time with a lemon. In sticking with the gambling metaphor, Car Battler Joe, a Game Boy Advance release from Natsume, is the casino equivalent of putting a quarter in the slot machine and winning a million dollars.
