Very Good

stupid 360 d-pad

ya know, I could have liked this game ...

amazing characters, decent combat (though a little shallow), and great artwork and animations.

problem is the 360 d-pad sucks tremendously making traditional fighters VERY hard to play. So yeah, I could have gotten into this game to make a better review, but with the d-pad as it is, no dice.

Fighter enthusiasts only need apply.

Really Bad

A Failed Fighter

Pros:
Art style
Unique characters
Simple fighting system

Cons:
No tutorial
Broken Save System
Online competition

When I heard RPG/Fighting game, what I had envisioned was a game more like Puzzle Quest, where disputes are settled in a Bejeweling fashion. What a price you will pay for making this game out to be anything more than artsy arcade fighter with no innovation.
This is a port that should have stayed in Japan.

The game features a few standard modes, such as story, arcade, survival and time attack. Story mode is very long, with lots and lots of text. Some stories are funny while others are very serious to the game's plot. Arcade mode is your average "insert a coin and see where you can go up to" mode. Survival mode is pretty straightforward also, with you fighting an endless supply of enemies.

The cast of characters are quirky and really feels out of place, but hey, its a fantastical story so it doesn't have to be in place. The characters are very well balanced where the heaviest character will be slow and has high hp whilst the fastest character will have above average hp. There is your special attacks for each character and a rage mechanic that strengthens your characters attacks.

The game starts out fine at first. You beat a few characters, and then you get to fight the boss. The boss will then become an uberboss, a boss that you cannot win under normal circumstances. You will be swearing in no time.

All in all, it is worth your rental. Some of the achievements are easy to achieve, where you just have to beat each character's story. Some achievements require you to do a specific action with a character. One achievement you would be proud of, if you don't break your television first,would be defeating the last boss by not using any rage.
