Gone are the bland 2D fighting environments of previous DBZ
games, replaced in favor of 3D roaming which more represented
the nature of the anime series loved by millions. Tenkaichi
2 isn't perfect, but it's infinitely more playable on the PS2
than on the Wii in our opinion, due to the fact that the Wii-mote
just doesn't cut it.
I'd never watched a Naruto show in my life, but that didn't
stop me from enjoying this eclectic and frenetic fighting game.
The fast-paced fisticuffs, multi-tiered levels and wild encounters
with characters from the popular anime sealed the deal for Naruto
fans of all ages when it was released in summer 2006.
Namco Bandai blew everyone away with their phenomenal PSP-based
fists of fury. Tekken: DR not only looked like a million bucks,
but it actually played like it too. Battles could be played
alone or ad-hoc which only sweetened the Tekken experience.
The PSP needed some gargantuan-sized mega hits this year and
trust us when we tell you, Tekken: Dark Resurrection was definitely
one of 'em.
One of the strangest and hardest fighting games we've ever
played. God Hand is the perfect blend of fighting, challenge
and good ol' insanity. You have the hand of God fused into
your limb and you use it to punch out bad guys. Sounds like
some diety was having a bad day and needed to get out his
frustrations. You might get a tad over-heated yourself when
you face off against some of the games later villains. Tough
stuff. Hardcore gamers need only apply.
