Summary

The best fighting game for the PC.

The Good

The music is very good, the gameplay is great, and the backgrounds are awesome. The varied robots are actually very different from one another, and not just when it comes to secret moves. The controls are very simple and intuitive, with only two attack buttons! In the story mode, you can pick from different pilots with varying speed, stamina and power to fight in the robot of your choice providing extra replay value.

The very best part of the game though is the tournament mode. You start out with a bare bone Jaguar robot and a wussy pilot. Each fight you win gives you money for upgrades and training, and later you might trade in your robot for a different model. You have to be careful because if you lose, you might have to sell some valuable components to pay for the repair costs. Even if you win, you might not get much money if you suffer a lot of damage during the fight, and the better your robot the more the repairs cost! This ability to upgrade your fighter and to change robots at any time you can afford one extends the replay value of the game beyond that of ANY other fighting game on ANY system! The many secret characters don't hurt either.

The Bad

N/A

The Bottom Line

Play the best fighting game on the PC and arguably in the world. The tournament mode will drag you back again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again...
