A fighting game where all characters are 2D but you play in a 3D world. It’s a fighting game with a bit of platforming, kind of like Streets Of Rage with combos, you unlock new attacks as you go and it does have an impressive stable of combos. The problems far outweigh the positives I’m afraid. The combat is straight-up Mashy and bad, bad in that enemies can shoot you with amazing accuracy, a lot of the enemies explode and you are stuck in a combo animation and get hit, add in the bad checkpointing and be prepared to play a whole lot of the level again and again. It’s just the game never gets going and when it does it’s never satisfying. I never found the game to be enjoyable or even something I wanted to stay with. The combat could be great but everything combined as it is now is just not cohesive or accessible.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
