I'm not going to bother with a detailed review of these games. Mainly because I haven't beaten them death yet. But I'll say what I think with the time I've had on them.
MadWorld... what can I say? It's boring! Sure you get to kill a lot of people in fun creative ways but after doing it for an hour it gets very repeatitive and since there is no real story(at least not one worth paying attention to) you get tired of it fast. The graphics are not good and I feel the artsy black and white color pallete is designed to hide the fact that the graphics are weak. The play machanics are equally slugish and uninspired. I mean I really can't think of a reason to go back to this game and beat it.
Tatsunoko vs Capcom is better but not by much. When compared to other fighting games it lacks a lot. Maybe it's because I was raised during the salad days of Street Fighter II when your skill with 6 bottons made or broke you in combat but this 3 botton fighter just doesn't play well. I'm not saying it's not a fun game for beginners but when I select Ryu I expect to have 3 punches and 3 kicks not 3 random punches and kicks that I cannot control.
Tatsunoko vs Capcom does have some fun worthwhile features that I like. It has internet matches that set up fast and easy with other people playing around the world. It also has rankings and an ingame store where you can unlock characters and other special bonus material using points you get from playing the game. You can even get a rival online and strive to one day kick the shit out of him.
Out of all the games I have on the Wii I really like Tatsunoko vs Capcom and hope that they try bringing out a fuller version of the game with 6 attack bottons instead of 3. As for the sound, I'd give it an A. The voice was good the sound effects were good and the music was good. The graphics were ok. No where near the PS3 or 360 but good enough to look like arcade quality. The animation of the characters and their design was excellent and the list of fighters was pretty good though I would of liked to see more.
MadWorld I'd Flush it! Just because it doesn't have anything really to offer other than violence.
Tatsunoko vs Capcom I'd Buy it! if you don't have a PS3 or 360. If you have a better system then I'd rent it just to try out the anime characters.
How the fuck do you play this with a Wii-mote?!
I played this Tatsunoko VS Capcom once with a Wii-mote holding it sideways. I didn't have a clue what to do. Dash in smash buttons, attack opponent it seemed to be similar to MvC2. Just because it's on the Wii I'm not excited for it all. I think I would have to buy the Nintendo Wii fight stick just to enjoy it. I have no idea how/why Nintendo got the rights for this game to be exclusive. If the game was coming out exclusively for either the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3 I would be buying it next week. Hell, I bought the Limited edition of Blaz Blue! Check out a few cool videos I pull from the tube.Read full story...
Review of the new trailer for the Wii version of Tatsunoku vs Capcom
So a new trailer just dropped for the Wii version of Tatsunoku vs Capcom. Excitement abound.
First off let me comment on all the "awards" they show it won. OMG IT WON BEST FIGHTING GAME AT E3????? What exactly was it's competition? No one makes fighting games anymore. Did it beat some new Tekken or some shit?
I still have no idea what Tatsunoku is. I'm gonna guess it's some animation company because I see some Battle of the Planets fuckers, giant robots, people with swords, and lots of characters with those creepy big eyes that dont resemble any actual race that Japanese animators love. Oh and there's a guy who throws a shopping cart and I could see there being an anime series just about shopping carts because anime is stupid and they make series about stupid shit like that. Or is that the guy from Dead Rising. I wouldnt know because I hate video games.Read full story...
