Pride FC – Review

Made by the same capable and experienced developers responsible for the groundbreaking UFC game, which first appeared on the defunct Sega Dreamcast several years ago, Pride FC is an effective evolution of the niche sub-genre of two-player versus-style fighting games.

Pride FC

Game Description: Pride FC is the most realistic fighting videogame for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system. Fighters recreated in amazing detail with appearance, fighting style, movements, and signature ring entrances. Various combat elements capture the intensity and authenticity of a Pride contest including multiple fighting positions, unique fighting styles, hundreds of moves, counters, and reversals. With a TV-style presentation, each match-up comes to life in fully scaled arenas complete with ring announcers, lighting, pyrotechnics, and realistic camera angles. Pits the top fighters in the world from several different combative sports including wrestling, karate, judo, kick-boxing, and others into one ring.

Devil May Cry 2 – Second Opinion

The original Devil May Cry was the perfect antidote to the Resident Evil series. Instead of counting bullets the way a starving man counts bread crumbs, Devil May Cry gave me unlimited bullets. Instead of controlling the tank-like Resident Evil characters (turn, turn, turn, go forward), I had Dante, who moved with the style and grace of a Cirque du Soleil acrobat.

Soul Calibur II

Game Description: A new page in history has begun as the most highly-anticipated fighting game ever finally arrives! The greatest 3D weapons-based fighter will provide non-stop action, excitement and surprises as you go one-on-one against your favorite challengers.

Soul Calibur II – Second Opinion

Boxing is often called the "sweet science." The strategy, execution and skill make up the "science" and I'm assuming the thrill and satisfaction of victory is what makes it "sweet." In Soul Calibur III, I feel there's very little "science" that goes into the combat and consequently, victory isn't particularly "sweet."

Soul Calibur II – Review

If someone heard my buddy Joey and I playing Soul Calibur II, they'd think that it's probably the funniest game ever.

Soul Calibur II – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence, Suggestive Themes 

Final Fight One – Second Opinion

Sadly, taking Final Fight One out for another spin proved to be a disaster and I took little joy in reenacting the old. The game is repetitive as Mike mentions, but that isn't what threw me for a loop. Even today, most contemporary games aren't as diverse as most people seem to think and repetition isn't necessarily the antithesis to engaging play.

Tekken 4 – Second Opinion

With each new Tekken that comes out, I tell myself I've had enough, that I've already played these games way too much, but Namco has always pulled me back in with new characters, new mechanics, or even new graphics that make it a fresh experience. This just wasn't the case with Tekken 4.
