Fighting

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.

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.

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.

The Mark of Kri

Game Description:  An intense and exhilarating fighting adventure experience, The Mark of Kri delivers graphic and gory fighting in a stylish cartoon universe. The gameplay is varied and involves exploration, strategy, and stealth, among other elements. With an engaging story line filled with conflict, magic, and discovery, the game follows Rau, a heroic warrior unmatched in skill and strength, as he battles through richly detailed environments to discover the truth about his family's dark secret. Featuring a completely new and innovative combat system, detailed character design, and clever gameplay, The Mark of Kri aims to breathe new life into the action-adventure genre.

Way of the Samurai – Second Opinion

To illustrate his experience with Way Of The Samurai, Chi compared the game to John Woo films, specifically Hard-Boiled. The film is used to indicate his feelings that there are underlying themes of loyalty, morality and honor. I also thought of an influential filmmaker and film while playing this game. Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing was always on my mind.

Way of the Samurai – Review

Way Of The Samurai is like an interactive Woo film in that forces players to make tough decisions regarding loyalty, morality, and honor much like the one Alan made in Hard-Boiled. And much like a Woo film, the game resolves its conflicts with blood-drenched violence.
