Summary

Super Blackjack Battle 2 Turbo Edition is a fun game, It plays well and looks nice but after a few games, you kind of see everything on offer. The only draw to come back would be to use it as a time waster. So much went into making it feel and look like Streetfighter that it missed a few bits that keep it different. I mean a custom game mode and a tutorial would have been nice as well as a difficulty setting so new players could break it in slowly. As it stands then its a decent enough distraction but it won’t be a game you play a lot. Really wish you got online or at least leaderboard support. A fantastic idea but needs more content.

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!
