Crazy Gamers Beware

If you wanna fight, rent Soul Calibur IV instead.....because it is far better than this one. I had this game in my console 30 minutes, and that was enough for me.

The graphics weren't spectacular or anything, but they were good. The gameplay, well it's not like anything you've played before. The controls are simple, yet I feel like I spent the entire time trying to master them, and right as I thought I had them down, I still got my --- beat.

The main problem I had was that I spent all 30 minutes trying to beat this guy (on easy), and the whole time I was winning, but for some reason when the fight went into the "sudden death" round, the computer stepped it up a notch and kicked my ---.....and that round is the ONLY one that matters because if ya lose that one, then you lose the whole fight. It shouldn't even go into a "sudden death" round if your opponent didn't even knock you down once!

Oh yeah, did I mention it gets a little REPETITIVE. It's basically High Attack, Low Attack, over and over and over, with an occasional 'throw' and 'breaker'

I don't know, maybe others would be better at this game than I was. It does seem like one of those games that someone would either like a lot, or dislike a lot. But as you can tell from the GameFly rating....not a lot of fans.

I got this game cause the whole concept of the picture thing seemed interesting, and the game description sounded cool, but I am glad I rented it to see for myself.

Crazy Gamers Beware: This one will bring out the crazy in you!

I have heard this often referred to as the next Punch-Out, but I think this falls short of that. The characters are great but the speed at which the matches take place and the arcade style play makes it difficult to enjoy. The lack of gameplay modes gives this very little replay value. It is worth renting and playing for a few days and then getting the next game on your list.

I played FACEBREAKER for about 20 minutes before realizing I was doing the same thing over and over with every character. I'm sure the combos are cool, but in order to do a combo, you have to do like 20 regular punches. And everyone has the same regular punches. So, It got played out pretty fast.
