Granblue Fantasy: Versus

Granblue Fantasy: Versus

Even if you know nothing about the Granblue Fantasy franchise, this fighting game collaboration between Cygames and Arc System Works is a beautiful, yet accessible brawler. With in-depth training modes and a massive RPG section, there’s plenty of content here for players even before sinking their teeth into the multi-player modes. It might not have the biggest roster or most original story, but it is a lot of fun and that’s what matters the most.

Gameplay: Plenty of modes to keep players busy and the game is also very accessible.

Graphics: The art and animation are great.

Sound: The quality of the music, sound effects, and voice-overs are all very high

Soulcalibur

Soulcalibur

It is really great to play SoulCalibur again, and the game is as fun as ever, but it also lacks some of the original Dreamcast content. The loss of mission mode, lack of online multiplayer and black bars on either side of the screen brings the score down a bit, but the gameplay is intact. SoulCalibur was one of the best weapon-based brawlers of the Dreamcast era and is still a nice addition to anyone’s library.

Gameplay: Still a great game even with the cut content.
Graphics: Holds up surprisingly apart from no support for widescreens.
Sound: The audio is still as chaotic as the original

SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy

SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy

Don’t approach SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy expecting an indepth move list and longevity. Instead, it is a very newcomer-friendly brawler with a firm emphasis on fan service. The customization options are nice, but not as extensive as we would have liked and the story mode is unlikely to keep players hooked for very long. The game is undeniably fun, especially if you don’t have the time to practice endlessly just to become proficient with certain characters, but sadly this also means that you’ll tire of it quite soon.

Gameplay: Very newcomer-friendly, but can’t hold a candle to some of the bigger titles available.

Graphics: Characters look great and the outfits are eye-catching, but the backgrounds could have been much better.

Sound: Nothing remarkable about the music, but the Japanese voice acting is very fitting

Dead or Alive: Dimensions

Dead or Alive: Dimensions

Dead or Alive Dimensions is a solid debut for the series on 3DS and makes good use of the hardware to provide an entertaining experience. It features a ton of content, great visuals, and the controls very responsive as well. The Chronicles mode, which attempts to explain the entire Dead or Alive timeline in one story mode is a bit confusing at times and turning up the 3D slows down the framerate, but overall this is a great title for fans of DOA and newcomers alike.

Gameplay: Fast and fluid, provided you turn the 3D down.

Graphics: The game looks great, with and without the 3D.

Sound: The soundtrack is great and all the characters are fully voiced

Dead Or Alive 2

Dead Or Alive 2

Dead or Alive 2 is a much faster fighting game than other 3D titles, but with some practice it is a lot of fun. The game might appear to be very simple at first, but mastering all the techniques will take a while. The beautiful visuals will draw you in but there is more than enough gameplay to back it all.

Gameplay: Fast and frantic.

Graphics: Great compared to other fighters on the market.

Sound: Decent

Take On Emperor Caligula Himself In Gladiator Bastards For Android

Take On Emperor Caligula Himself In Gladiator Bastards For Android

A few years back, the Spartacus television series rekindled interest in gladiators with its brutal depiction of combat in the arena. Unfortunately, the show has long since run its course, but now a Finnish game company, Frak ltd., has stepped up to fill that void. Their debut title, Gladiator Bastards, is available now from the Play Store, so Android owners can spill the blood of their opponents on the warm sands of the Colosseum. Apple fans won’t have to wait too long to join in on the action either, as an iOS version is planned for this year too

Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!!

Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!!

Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!! has a lot to offer fans of the genre with its large roster of unique characters, interesting Arcanas and fast paced fighting. The character designs are great and it is only the pixalated sprites that let down the visuals somewhat. The fighting offers a lot of depth, but even novices can have fun by switching to Simple mode. For a great 2D fighter that is unlike anything else available on PC give Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!! a shot.

Gameplay: Fast, frantic and once you have mastered the moves, a lot of fun.

Graphics: Sprite are a little low-res and the 4:3 resolution makes things feel a bit cramped, but overall quite good.

Sound: Full Japanese voice acting and some nice albeit unremarkable background music
