Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker Review

Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is not a great game. Though it has an entertaining character creator and some fantastic customization options, separate the game from the license for a second, and it becomes clear that Shinobi Striker is a sub-par action game and an even worse multiplayer experience.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Review

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a worthy inclusion for any fighting game fan’s collection. It’s a straight port of the 2011 game, but the included DLC makes the purchase worth its price. The graphics don’t feel too outdated, and its comic-book style still holds up as far as 2D fighters go. With a huge roster of fan-favorites, flashy movesets, classic game soundtrack remixes, fair online infrastructure, and medium-defying crossovers, UMvC3 is pure, unadulterated fun.

Divekick

Divekick is a clever proof of concept for a fighting game reduction, and while that concept never quite turns into a fighting game great, it remains a precise and fast-paced alternative in a genre where it can often take hours just to get a grip on a single character. It takes all but ten seconds to grasp the basics of Divekick, but unless you really get into the online, it struggles to maintain a long-lasting infatuation.

Soul Calibur III

The same great fighting mechanics have been included in this game with some very nice improvements to make the game feel a lot smoother. Fans of the series are going to really enjoy this game for its smooth gameplay and its extended list of character, which really strengthens the overall experience.

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks

In fact I was actually surprised to find myself enjoying this game as much as I did, as the combat is fluid, the graphics are good, and the overall storyline of the game is very interesting, especially with how much MK history is involved in the game. If you enjoy MK and want to experience a different flavor for the series, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks is a great way to do just that.

Capcom Fighting Evolution

Capcom Fighting Evolution was really just anything it was made out to be. I mean the idea of being able to play as these classic Capcom fighters is a great one, but the execution was so bland and un-original that it just caused me to sit back and wonder why they didn’t put more work into this game to really make it more of a new game rather then a rehash of old 2D fighters.

Dead or Alive Ultimate

To put the word "ultimate" on the title is quite a risky endeavor, but one this game truly lives up to. For any fan of the series or the fighting genre in general looking for a new game, DOA: Ultimate is a great game for you, go pick it up today!

Soul Calibur II

Soul Calibur II is one of those games that if you like fighting games, you definitely need to go pick this one up. With the numerous game modes for both single and multiplayer, and the solid graphics, you’re in for one heck of a time. If you haven’t already go try this one out it is definitely worth it.

K-1 World Grand Prix

K-1 World Grand Prix does a good job of making a pretty solid fighting title. With decent graphics and decent gameplay you end up getting a pretty decent game. There is a lot of fun to be had playing this game but I would find it being a better rental then it would being one to purchase.

Bloody Roar Extreme

Bloody Roar Extreme is a solid fighting title that will impress those who are just looking for a good time rather then an extensive full force title. The game hosts a very easy pick up and play type style so it can be a lot of fun to play with friends and can also be quite fun to play by your self as well. If you are looking for a fighting title Bloody Roar Extreme might just be for you, I would though highly recommend this as a solid rental title.

Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus

Even with the major gameplay flaws, Tao Feng is not a bad game by any stretch, but a game that could definitely use some work. If you are looking for a fighter then go check it out. I am not sure I would recommend it as a purchase, but Tao Feng makes for an excellent rental.

Guilty Gear X2

While many people may cringe at the learning curve or the inability to play as an easily identifiable character such as Ryu or a Marvel comics character, the technical and game play merits present more than make up for it. GGX2 offers incredible depth in a slick, highly seasoned package. Fans of 2D fighters now have a new series to herald as one of their keepsakes, and a new developer to keep an eye out for in the future.
