Armchair Empire, The
It’s not much of a fighting game, its controls are inexact, the camera has its own quirks, and it’s only enjoyable during short sittings, but Zatch Bell! Mamodo Fury is a very stylish Japanese game that should please fans of the anime.
With its sizable cast of characters and lengthy story mode, Zatch Bell! Mamodo Fury offers a lot of very familiar content in one package. However, the gameplay is far too shallow and frustrating to be satisfying. If you're unfamiliar with Zatch Bell! this isn't a good place to start, because it provides no context for the license and does nothing to appeal to those who aren't already intimately familiar with the series. The result is just another perfunctory anime-inspired fighting game that fails to distinguish itself beyond its license.
If you don't care how broken and rudimentary this game is as long as it's like the show, you're going to be in a fury in no time. Zatch Bell! tries to have an episodic story structure, but to do this it has to have some sort of story progression. There's none of that. Even if the show itself is a little chaotic and random, the game is so unclear about whom you're battling next and why the heck you are, we're scared to think just how much the developers knew about the show in the first place.
