According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Violence
Parents should have nothing to fear. There's no foul language, drug use or sexual imagery in Car Battler Joe. Since the game is a fusion of multiple genres, recommeding this game to particular groups is tricky.
Let me say that RPG and Pokémon fans who like customizing cars should enjoy this title.
Fans for driving games should be aware that there's no race-to-the-finish-line style of play. All the driving and comabt takes place mostly in an arean setting similar to the Twisted Metal series.
Fans of bargain videogames should not hesistate to pick up Car Battler Joe. Don't let the twenty-dollar price tag fool you into thinking this is a game of low-production values and design. It is quite the opposite in fact.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should have no difficulty with this game since all the menus and dialogue are text-based.
In the 1980s, Chi grew up in small town on the outskirts of New York City called Jackson Heights. Latino actor, John Leguizamo referred to the town as the "melting pot of the world," and while living there, Chi was exposed to many diverse cultures, as well as a bevy of arcade classics such as Pac-Man, Space Ace, Space Harrier and Double Dragon. Chi's love of videogames only seemed to grow as his parents finally caved and bought him an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (after being the only kid in the block without one). In the 1990s, Chi finagled his way into the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts.
Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.
Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers GameCritics.com his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that GameCritics.com will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
