The 3-D fighting game space for generations has always been viewed as a niche sub-group within the grand scheme of the traditional fighting game model, and while many have come and gone, it was the Tekken franchise that truly managed to cement itself within the fighting game community (FGC).

Bandai Namco’s latest iteration to the long-lasting Tekken franchise—Tekken 7 is seemingly a culmination of almost everything a Tekken fan wanted and a little more. However, perhaps the most impressive feat is that Tekken 7 managed to modernize itself, whilst still keeping true to its original roots. Continue reading “Tekken 7 – Review”

Street Fighter may not have been the first fighting game franchise, but there is no doubt that the series is the torchbearer when it comes to fighting games. A few new mechanics coupled with the traditional core feel of Street Fighter, the latest iteration of Street Fighter IV; Ultra Street Fighter IV (USFIV) is a fine addition that contributes to the franchise’s prowess and tradition.

With a plethora of characters to choose from, the style of play is really up to the player depending on how the character is used, going wild with El Fuerte, jumping off walls is an option or if searching for a more traditional fighter who sports a fireball and an uppercut, an array of shotos are available to pick from. Flexibility is a must have trait when playing USFIV as there are many styles to play with and adapt against. Continue reading “Ultra Street Fighter IV Review”

They did it again.

Atlus and Arc System Works have brought us yet again another outstanding 2D fighter packed with all the persona action and glory that the original JRPG fans of Persona 3 and Persona 4 wished for.

As a big fan of the original game in the series, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (P4U2) was going to be a game that wouldn’t have to change much from the original Persona 4 Arena formula to sell me on it.  Arc System Works may have known that coming into making the sequel, but instead of playing it safe, they delivered an exceptional game that introduces new game mechanics as well as touching up the areas where Persona 4 Arena (P4A) needed improvement.

Flow. Persona 4 Arena (P4A) has a special flowing nature to it that sets it apart from old school 2D fighting games.

Everything from the way the characters move, to smooth mechanics, to how the soundtrack fits perfectly in amping up the player to put up a fight. Everything just flows perfectly.

Spinning off from its JRPG roots, Atlus with the collaboration of Arc System Works brought us a fantastic fusion of the characters we loved in Persona 3 and Persona 4 but in a different setting we are used to seeing them in. This time instead of fighting shadows together, they are forced into the arena and are pitted against each other. Continue reading “Persona 4 Arena Review”
