Fighting

Clan of Champions Second Opinion

A Shadow of Its Former Glory

HIGH I never expected another game of this type from these developers.

LOW It's awful! How could it possibly be so awful?!?

WTF how anyone could consider this fit for sale.

King of Chinatown Review

King of Chinatown Image

King of Chinatown follows professional Street Fighter IV player Justin Wong as he competes both worldwide and in his local Chinatown arcade. In about an hour, the film features Justin and his then-manager Isaiah Triforce Johnson (his actual legal name) attempting to make Justin the best Street Fighter IV player in the world. At the same time, they try elevating Triforce's fighting guild "Empire Arcadia" to the next level.

Clan of Champions Review

Gladiator Ends

HIGH Knocking the sword out of a skeleton's hand, then crushing its skull with a mace a moment later.

LOW Oh good. Let's fight three guys in the crumbling courtyard for the sixth time. That never gets old.

WTF Why does this boss obey none of the game's rules? Why am I fighting him twice?

Dead or Alive 5 Review

Staying Alive

HIGH Landing a well timed Power Blow that destroys the opponent—not to mention everyone and everything around them.

LOW Inconsistent netcode often leads to irritating online matches.

WTF Virtua Fighter characters made it into the series before Rachel and Momiji did? Seriously?

Video: Realistic Fighting Game

This is why the fighting game genre will never go away. The real thing just winds up making you look like a useless wimp.

Caution: Crude language

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection Review

Still Shamelessly Crushing on Future Trunks

HIGH Seeing all of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai's story mode in bright, shiny HD; Reversible cover art!

LOW Seeing Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3's boring story mode in flat, static HD; Cheap AI.

WTF The AI abuses the crap out of the fact that combat starts when "FIGHT" appears, not when it fades like most other fighters—cheap first hits for everyone!

Anarchy Reigns Review

Goes to 11? More like 14.

HIGH Sasha. Also, Sasha.

LOW Not realizing there was an elevator behind the tentacle.

WTF The "red eyes" are never sufficiently explained.

Misfits, Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, Absolution and Sine Mora

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale Screenshot

GameFly sent me Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale the other day, and while I haven't had a whole lotta time to get into it, I did play a few multiplayer sessions with my youngest son. The time we spent on it basically amounts to me standing still while he beats on me with a variety of different characters, but he enjoys it and that's good enough for us.

Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise Review

When Easy is Too Hard

HIGH Finally beating the game after a solid hour of continuous failure.

LOW Unavoidable special attacks.

WTF The last boss comes out of nowhere, plot-wise.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Review

An Iron Fist... in a Newbie's Face

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Screenshot

HIGH Finally starting to master characters and kick some ass.

LOW Losing to the final boss over and over and over again.

WTF Who approved the Easy difficulty level?
