Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu – Review

It used to be that "beat-'em-ups" were one of the major staples of videogames. I know that I sure played a ton of Final Fight, Golden Axe, Double Dragon and countless other games that were all variations on the theme of "keeping moving right while smashing the absolute crap out of anything that moves." As the medium has progressed, the beat-'em-up has become relegated to the back burner. There have been moments of brilliance, such as the Dynasty Warriors series, but increasingly the beat-'em-up is only the mechanical underpinning for games designed purely to cash in on an existing license.

Bloody Roar 4 – Review

Now comes Bloody Roar 4. Technically fourth (although really the sixth if you count cross-system updates) it's the perfect example of the sort of game that seems to poised to make its mark on the world and then inexplicably proceeds to hang out at the local mall for its entire adult life.

Bloody Roar 4

Game Description: In the beginning there was the Beast Kingdom, where four in five inhabitants were beast people known as "Zoanthropes". Called upon to protect the kingdom, some of the Beast Warriors provided their services to other countries in the Zoanthropes Mercenary Brigade. Fighting became a major source of income for the kingdom, and so it was that the ultimate Zoanthrope fighting tournament came to be. The tournament develops the skills of Beast Warriors and strengthens the Zoanthropes Mercenary Brigade. The winner will take home a handsome prize, and the title of "Zoanthrope Champion."

Guilty Gear X

Game Description: Guilty Gear X is a visually stunning 2D fighter for the PlayStation 2 console. Speed is the name of this game—the faster you fight, the deadlier your arsenal of attacks. Build up the tension gauge for a number of effects, then go for the instant kill! Guilty Gear X is the most explosive version in the series, making full use of the PlayStation 2's enhanced hardware capability. New to the PS2 version are a revamped tension gauge, an instant-kill move (very tricky, yet very rewarding), and the stunning Roman candle—a move that enables experienced players to create their own devastating combos.

Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution – Second Opinion

I think Gene is being a little pejorative by hanging that 8.5 on Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution. He labels it "user-nasty," then bemoans the fact that he had to spend time in the training mode—"slogging through command list after command list"—in order to reaquaint himself with the controls.

Guilty Gear X – Review

There are at least two very distinct experiences a player can have when playing Guilty Gear X. Which one you get depends on whether you're a master or a masher.
