SoulCalibur VI Review
“Transcending history and the world, a tale of souls and swords, eternally retold.” These are the words heard so many times in the past and anticipated to be heard again. Soul Blade, a weapon-based fighter that preceded SoulCalibur-series, was the first game I bought for my PlayStation. I was quite impressed how close it was to its arcade original I had played vigorously whenever I was in downtown at the arcade hall.
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Review
The world is safe for a change in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle. It’s not a canonical entry to the series but a fun diversion where BlazBlue heroes and heroines are joined by characters from other 2D fighters. As opposed to the series’ traditional one-on-one bouts, Cross Tag Battle calls for teams of two to do some tag team fighting.
Slice, Dice and Rice Review
Fighting games have remained pretty much unchanged ever since they broke through in the early 90’s with the success of titles like Street Fighter II. Two combatants chip each other’s health bars away blow by blow and kick by kick, until one of them falls. Some games have tried to shake the things up, but so far, the basic formula has been an undisputed champion. Weapon-based Slice, Dice and Rice is the latest beat ’em up getting rid of health bars and complex move lists. Much like Bushido Blade games on the original PlayStation, the fight can be over after only one masterful strike.
