Fighting

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.

Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution – Review

Even as I took out the 20 dollar bill out of my wallet to purchase this game, I asked myself why I'm bothering paying to play a game I had mastered and even reviewed almost a full year ago. The answer is pretty simple: I really like the game. So much that I'm willing to pay to see the new additions.

Viewtiful Joe

Game Description: In this fighting action game from Capcom USA Studio 4's Atsushi Inaba, players take control of an average, well, Joe as he's transported into his favorite movie. In his new environment, Joe discovers he has all the abilities of Hollywood action-hero when he becomes Viewtiful Joe. Using cel-shading techniques, VJ boasts a unique visual style that blends colorful 3D environments with a twisted take on traditional 2D gameplay. Joe's power stems from his skillful martial arts attacks, high-flying acrobatics, and time-bending special effects. Players can slow down or speed up time when attacking/ dodging enemies, as well as zoom in on the action to execute different attacks.

Viewtiful Joe – Review

Capcom's Viewtiful Joe is an all-too-knowing parody of genre cliches in various forms of entertainment, from videogames to television to film. It's exactly the kind of game where one might expect a hearty wink after an enemy says, "Who do you think you are, some kind of Rock Man?"

According to ESRB, this game contains: Intense Violence, Blood
