Fighting

Tekken 4 – Review

Among the current contenders for the 3D fighting game crown, nearly every game is a kind of proof that this statement is true. Generally, the fighting genre has been suffering from a malaise of small innovation and unwillingness to change proven formulas. In turn, this has caused a slump in the number of games being released and a dwindling interest in what was once a hot and exciting genre.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Review

As a game, Buffy The Vampire Slayer is incredibly faithful to the show it is based on. The sarcastic humor, tone, and atmosphere of the program are all faithfully recreated. The original castwith the exception of Sarah Michelle Gellar (who plays Buffy)has provided their voices for the game, giving the title the feel of the show.

Tekken 4

Game Description: Tekken 4 marks the return of Namco's premier fighting franchise. Tekken 4 strikes back with new jaw-dropping graphics, gameplay mechanics, and fearsome fighters. Newcomers engage old favorites in interactive, multileveled arenas. New strategies in fighting are introduced with the addition of walls, terrain effects, position changes, and enhanced side-stepping. Expanded game modes such as training, team battle, and the new Tekken Force provide the player with a deeper gameplay experience.

Tekken 4 – Consumer Guide

The Mark of Kri – Second Opinion

I'm happy to say I can echo Brad's enthusiasm regarding The Mark Of Kri. It's a damn fine game. And while I don't quite consider it the masterpiece he does, there's no denying that its innovations are fresh and well-implemented.

Virtua Fighter 4 – Second Opinion

The Virtua Fighter series has always presented itself with a greater sense of dignity and realism than other fighting games that usually take the anime-fantasy theme route, but the latest sequel of the series exposes the hand-to-hand martial arts simulator label to be more hyperbole than substance.

WWF Smackdown!: Just Bring It – Second Opinion

While I certainly do have my own views concerning what I regard as "art", as would anyone, I do not share Chi's opinion for WWF SmackDown: Just Bring Its "Create-A-Wrestler" mode. I've always viewed these features as nothing more than extras designed to beef up a game. Such options would attract my curiosity for little more than five minutes, browsing around to see what they offered in terms of choice and originality, before I permanently left them alone.

Capcom vs. SNK – Review

Capcom vs. SNK looks stunning. If anyone out there thinks 2D gaming is dead, they'd be well advised to look at this title, which will almost assuredly make them re-evaluate their stance on the power of sprite-based graphics.

The Mark of Kri – Review

The shift in videogames from 2D to 3D has led to the development of many new and interesting concepts, but some old favorites have found that making the jump to the next generation has been tougher than expected. It's arguable that old-school shooters may have had the roughest transition, but in my view developers trying to recreate classic beat-'em-ups like Final Fight or Streets Of Rage are the ones that have consistently stumbled time and time again.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence
